2019 World AeroPress Championship - 2nd place

Straight from the World AeroPress Championships in London, here is the 2019 2nd place recipe, which uses a Pacas variety bean produced by Orlando Aguilar from El Salvador; roasted by Ozone Coffee Roasters in London.

Benja's delicious recipes has a 'pre-bypass', adding 110g of water into your server which you then press into.

If you are using a Commandante grinder, Benja recommends about 30 clicks for best results with his recipe.

Congratulations to Benja, and thank you for a great recipe!
