Dr Jekyll or Mr Hyde

I was preparing an AeroPress but I put 14 clicks instead of 24 on my JX\-Pro grinder \(translation: espresso fine, instead of moka fine\) and then said "Why not?".

Made a 1:10 ratio, made a wish and gave my best try.

I also used a medium roast blend (50% Colombia "Nariño" - 50% Honduras both washed coffee). I will replicate this aerop-recipe with a dark roast, just to confirm my theories.

You will need just 1 minute and 20 seconds to do the trick, but if you need it, 1:30 its just fine (like the grinding lol).
