Dark Roast Americano

This method makes a great Americano style coffee or latte with the AeroPress.

I find the robust flavors develop really well and it brings out nutty and chocolate notes well.

Recipe notes:

  • Use the provided Prismo metal filter beneath the paper filter so you do not blow out the center of the paper filter when pressing.
  • The amount of beans says 18, but you should get good results using anything from 16-18 - tweak to your tastes.
  • The first 120ml of water is 90(c), the next 30ml is to be room temperature.
