Aeropress

I finally picked up an Aerobie Aeropress coffee maker today from St. City Roasters.

aeropress_setupI’ve been wanting something to make a single cup of coffee for a while… I’m finding that with the heat lately, I haven’t always been finishing the coffee I make in the morning… and it doesn’t feel right dumping coffee down the drain.

Anyway, I tried it out this evening for the first time… putting a couple spoonfuls of fresh ground Organic Timor Maubesse beans into the coffee maker. I boiled up some water, then waited a couple minutes for the temperature to drop down a bit. Poured a little in to moisten the grounds as recommended, then poured in the rest and gave it the 10 second stir before putting in the plunger and pressing out a mug full of coffee.

The results were VERY pleasing 🙂 It was an excellent cup of coffee, and unlike my normal coffee from my Starbucks Grande Barista coffee maker, there was no coffee silt at the bottom of the mug. The coffee was very rich in flavour, no bitterness whatsoever. Absolutely delicious !

I ended up picking up another one for the office… and there will likely be more than one purchased as Christmas gifts for a few relatives that I know enjoy a good cup of coffee. Will also be awesome when away camping or fishing!
