Championship Cold Water Bypass

I crafted this recipe for the 2019 Canadian National Aeropress competition.

It intentionally makes use of some room temperature water in a creative way to bring the cup down to drinking temperature quickly for judges to taste.

It'll work at home too and allow you to drink it right away!
