Jacoby's 'Pseudo Espresso'

The point of this recipe is to do a twist on the classic "psuedo-espresso" recipe that the Aeropress was first invented to produce... but with better extraction.

“I've only had a couple of varieties that don't take well to this recipe. Go for a nice clean washed Ethiopian or a Kenyan. Makes the fruity notes pop along with having great viscosity.”

Try to finish within 2 minutes otherwise it gets too harsh.

Thanks to the crew @carabellocoffee @carabelloanalog for this recipe.
