Home Press by Benja

Benja was the 2019 World AeroPress Championship runner up. This is not the recipe he used in the competition, but it is what he uses when at home.

It's a quick and simple AeroPress recipe, and don't worry - you can still get your elbow into it just like Benja's competition recipe (which you can view here).
