French Press vs AeroPress

French Press vs AeroPress

French press and AeroPress are both popular coffee brewing methods. The French press produces a full-bodied and rich cup, while the AeroPress offers a cleaner and smoother result. The choice depends on your preference for coffee and what coffee you are brewing, french press works best with medium to dark roasted coffees like our Brazil, Dark Roast, and Sumatra while the Aeropress works best with lighter roasts like our Ethiopians, Colombia, and El Salvador
 Aeropress brewing instructions:
  - Use fresh, finely ground coffee beans (about 1 to 2 scoops). 10-20grams 
   - Set up your AeroPress with a paper filter in the cap.
   - Place it on a sturdy mug or server.
   - Start with a coffee-to-water ratio of 1:15 ( 15 grams of water per gram of coffee) you can also adjust based on your taste preferences.
   - Heat water to about 175-185°F
   - Add the coffee grounds to the AeroPress.
   - Pour in the hot water and stir for about 10 seconds making sure all the grounds are saturated. 
   - Attach the plunger and let it steep for 1-2 minutes.
   - Press down steadily and slowly for about 20-30 seconds.
   - Adjust the coffee strength by experimenting with grind size, brewing time, and coffee-to-water ratio.
French press brewing instructions:
   - Coarse coffee grounds (about 2 tablespoons (10 grams) per 6 ounces of water). 
   - Heat water to around 200-205°F
   - Use a coffee-to-water ratio of 1:15 to 1:17, depending on your taste preference.
   - Preheat the French press by pouring a small amount of hot water and swirling it around. Discard the water.
   - Add the coarse coffee grounds to the French press.
   - Pour hot water evenly over the coffee grounds, ensuring they are fully saturated.
   - Let the coffee steep for about 4 minutes. Adjust the steeping time based on your desired strength.
   - After steeping, slowly press down the plunger.

Experiment with grind size and steeping time to find the perfect balance for your taste preferences. Clean the French press thoroughly after each use for consistent results.
