This simple recipe is based on the following AeroPress recipe by Tim Wendelboe:
but with K.I.S.S. principle in mind, so that it needs:
- no scale
- no thermometer
- no inversion
Tim Wendelboe suggests a ratio of 14:200 = 0.07.
We don't have a scale, so we will add one AeroPress scoop, which is approximately 15gm of coffee. In order to respect 0.07 we will need more than 200gm of water (ideally 214gm).
Tim Wendelboe suggests 95°C water.
We don't have a thermometer, so we will boil some water and let it rest for approximately 1 minute.
1. a full AeroPress scoop of coffee beans is obviously not (always) 15gm - apart from the randomness of each scoop, the weight of a coffee bean can be influenced by variety/size/age etc.
2. (quickly) adding water (step 3) up to the bottom of the 4th circle is obviously not 214gm, but according to some poor tests and measurements (with the help of a (low quality) scale) it's an easy to remember/follow rule and the quantity of water should be close to ideal.
