Some people think I make a great cup of coffee. I think so too, and when a guest tells me they love my coffee, nothing makes me happier! I’m going to let you in on my secret. I use an Aeropress! It’s similar to a French Press, but instead of pushing the grinds through the water, it pushes the water through the coffee grinds. It doesn’t sound like it would make such a difference, but even my husband has grown to prefer the coffee I make him in the Aeropress. For most people, with palettes different than mine when it comes to coffee, my “recipe” is one flat scoop of coffee and another rounded/almost heaping scoop. The other important piece of info is how you buy the ground coffee. You must ask for it ground for a paper cone. I even ask to see the grounds as they begin grinding – before they do the whole bag – to make sure it is done the right way. (BTW, #8 at Starbucks) If it is ground too fine, you won’t be able to press down the Aeropress. If you appreciate your morning coffee and don’t mind the 10 minutes (you have to boil your water – it may take less time) you will have an incredibly smooth cup of coffee – unlike any you’ve had before.
