When using an AeroPress coffee maker, make sure that you have the correct coarseness of freshly ground coffee. It is best to use medium-fine coffee grind, which is similar in texture to table salt. This type of grind helps to ensure a balanced extraction and a smooth, delicious cup of coffee. Using freshly ground coffee just before brewing is also important. However, the type of grind can also depend on personal preferences and the brewing method used. It's worth experimenting with different grinds and methods to find the best taste for you. We stock the El Nino coffee blend which is perfect for good coffee.
AeroPress coffee is known for its smooth and clean taste because the brewing method combines immersion and pressure to extract a balanced flavor from the coffee grounds while minimizing bitterness and acidity. If you are new to AeroPress, try our Starter Pack.
