Sometimes in the morning, when I still feel sleepy and foggy, and I can't recall any other AeroPress recipes; or if I'm too lazy to search for cool AeroPress recipes, I'll do a quick and easy one like this.
It is an involved version of the early days' go-to recipe. Back then I didn't pay too much attention to fine details - I'd stir too casually. Now I've noticed how stirring would change the coffee's strength.
I also find that the strength you press can affect the coffee taste. When I press gently, the coffee is cleaner and has less sediment at the bottom of the cup. If you find your coffee has a bitter note (even if you grind it coarsely), try to press it very gently, and see if that makes a difference.
