Two Big Cups - One Brew

I use this recipe when I want to get a nice "coffee to go" in my thermomug or when I want to drink a nice cup with a friend.

I played a little bit around with the ways to control the extraction-rate and this recipe was the best result for my personal taste.

I use Yirgacheffe from Coffee Circle (light roasted), but I think you can use any type of coffee.

If you want to get more of the flowery flavours out of your light-roast coffee beans I recommend to take 2 or even 3 of the Aeropress filter papers.

I used 5 clicks on the Porlex Mini and with 30g it's almost filled to the max. amount of coffee you can go with the Porlex Mini.

I would love to get your feedback on this recipe, so please leave a comment below :)
