Ratio 1:4
Equipment AeroPress

Alan Adler is the inventor of the AeroPress. This is his original recipe, which is easy to follow and ideal for beginners. Adler recommends using a grind that's somewhere between drip and espresso. You'll end up with an espresso-strength coffee, but you can add hot water to make an American coffee, or add microwaved milk to make a latte.
