No Press AeroPress

Follow along for an extremely simple, but extremely tasty AeroPress pour-over recipe.

For this recipe you won't need your AeroPress plunger - you'll be letting gravity do all the work.

You should end up with a clean but complex brew, with an elevated aroma. The extended brew time allows it to cool which also accentuates the complexity of the coffee.

If you have any V60 filters lying around, and you have the time, try cutting one of these into the shape of an AeroPress filter to help the coffee draw-down better.
