I've been searching/experimenting for a long time to have a espresso/ristretto-like cup. Either to drink or to make milk-based recipes for my loved ones.

I found this recipe while browsing reddit and told myself : "wow this is the one".

As per the post on reddit:

"I've tried it with multiple coffee beans and the only dial I had to do was the water temperature. Some dark roasts work better with even lower than 80C, while light-medium roasts might need boiling water.

Never in my life I've had such a good double ristretto. I was considering buying a Flair Pro, but damn, this Aeropress can do some magic. I might reconsider :))"

Tried this recipe? Let us know what you think, in the comments below.
