Apollon's Gold 2024

šŸ“ Recipe Notes:

  • Grind size: Slightly finer than pour-over; 20 clicks on Comandante
  • Filters: 2 paper filters, rinsed

Key Points:

  • Our goal is to highlight the acidity and flavors of each coffee origin without any bitterness. This recipe works well regardless of roast date and degassing.
  • The target Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) is 1.4~1.5 with a ratio of 16:235 (16g coffee, 235ml water).

Why Aeropress is Recommended:

  • Aeropress is highly recommended for its versatility in trying different coffees and brewing styles. It allows for adjustments in TDS and Extraction Yield (EY) without compromising on taste.
  • This brewing method is essentially an immersion brewer, making it a good alternative if you experience bitterness or astringency with pour-overs.

Steep Time:

  • The recommended steep time is around 1 minute 45 seconds. However, the ideal time depends on your grind setting and grinder. If using a fine grind, a shorter steep time is recommended.

Slow Pressing is Key:

  • The pressing motion is crucial for achieving an even extraction with the Aeropress. It's important to press gently and consistently. Avoid pressing too hard, as this can cause over-extraction due to uneven flow. Aim to finish the press just before it starts making a hissing sound.
  • Using a paper or metal filter can help reduce the risk of side leaks towards the end of the brew when applying more pressure.
