15g of Fine Robusta

Robusta beans are typically known for their bitter notes and have a reputation as being undesirable compared to Arabica in the specialty coffee world.

This AeroPress recipe will help take your cup of Robusta from sour and bitter to balanced, sweet and mostly you will avoid getting an under-extracted cup.

If you feel that your coffee needs more or less extraction, just wait more or less 30s at step 5.
