Aeropress video

Last month I took some video showing the process of making coffee with the aeropress using the inverted method but I did not have the time to properly edit the video until today. 

Here is a brief run through of what I'm doing during the video:

-Engage the pluger into the main aeropress unit so that the rubber is up to number 4 mark. Actually you can put the rubber higher if you want to brew less coffee or stronger coffee.

-Make sure that the whole platform is stable so you don't end up with hot liquid spilled everywhere or worse on yourself.

-Heat water (I'm using a glass bodum french press to do this in the microwave)

-Put the paper filter into the black cap and put it over your cup

-Rinse the paper filter with hot water; this step is crucial and accomplish 2 goals: wash the paper taste out of the filter and warming the receiving cup.

-add some hot water into the aeropress assemly to preheat it.

-Add coursely ground coffee (or finer grind you want shorter brewing time; a good starting point is ground that is finer than french press)

-Add hot water to the aeropress up to the top to saturate the coffee ground; start timer

-Stir using the included paddle for 10-15 seconds make sure all the ground are saturated

-press gently; ideally should last for about 20-30 seconds.

-clean-up the Aeropress and enjoy!
