With the Aeropress, the tricky part is in getting the correct grind size to make a good 'aeropresso' shot. If the grind size is too coarse, you end up under extracting the coffee. If the grind is too fine, you won't be able to push the plunger down into the holder.
This is a guideline to how we make our famed TTR white brew shots.
The pressure has to be enough such that you are placing your body weight in the plunge down. it should be a sufficient workout and it should not be easy, even if you're an iron pumping fanatic. You should be able to plunge it all the way down within 20 seconds. If you are unable to plunge it even 5cm down, it is definitely way too fine, and you will have to adjust your grind to a coarse setting.
We will use non-inverted method (conventional) for this brewing style.
Place a paper filter in your filter cap and fix it onto the dripper.
Place the apparatus on a sturdy mug/cup.
Fine grind your coffee beans and pour it into the dripper using the funnel.
Start the timer and Pour in 75g of hot water (82C)
0-10secs : Pour
10- 20 secs: Bloom
20-30secs: Stir well, Gently
30 - 50 secs: Patiently wait
50 secs: Insert plunger with a gentle circular motion and start to plunge
55 s- 1.15 min : Plunge with consistent pressure.
You should yield a shot of approximately 50-60g of concentrate.
Add about 120-150g of milk or water (hot/cold), to taste. The amount of milk/water to add depends on the roast level, and type of coffee used.
