How can I get more flavor out of my Aeropress?
Try steeping your AeroPress brews for 10 minutes or more. The flavor profile will get much closer to pour overs brewed at high average extraction yields. Try using 100°C water if you are drinking light roasts, even though the AeroPress has more insulation than most pour over drippers.
Why does Aeropress taste better?
The Aeropress is an immersion brew method. Unlike a French press or toddy system, it uses finely ground coffee and a short brew time. The pressure produced from plunging further improves extraction and flavor, and is what gives the brewed coffee a strong flavor that is reminiscent of espresso.
Why does my Aeropress coffee taste weak?
Old beans will give a weak taste, no matter how long your brewing time is. If a weak, underwhelming flavour is your problem, you may want to look into some fresher beans with stronger flavours, if that is your preference. Don’t hoard old beans as a fresh batch will always give you a better flavour!
Does Aeropress make less acidic coffee?
Coffee brewed by AeroPress coffee makers contains about one-fifth the acidity of drip brewed coffee and one-ninth the acidity of French press brewed coffee. Because of this it’s easier on your stomach.
Which is better V60 or AeroPress?
