Type Espresso
Ratio 1:3
Equipment AeroPress

This recipe uses a lot of pressure to get as close as possible to a true espresso. Make sure you have a sturdy surface and cup! If you use a metal filter, you'll get more oils in your cup, resulting in a richer, thicker espresso.

Steps

1
Place a paper filter in the cap and rinse with hot water.

3
Give a gentle shake to level the grounds.
4
Pour 60 g of hot water over the grounds.
5
Stir a few times to saturate all the grounds.
6
Immediately press into the cup using as much pressure as you can. It should take just a few seconds.
