Micro-dosing for One

This is a small dose (micro-dose!) variation on James Hoffmann's AeroPress recipe.

It makes a modest cup of coffee with only 8 grams of beans.

I have small cups at home and I'm not looking for huge hits of caffeine to get me buzzed, so I developed this one cup James Hoffmann variation with one of the lowest coffee doses on this site.

It comes out really well rounded and packs a lot of flavour considering the low amount of beans used.
