Coffee lovers have long spent significant amounts of money in the pursuit of the perfect brew, but often all that is needed is a few pieces of simple equipment. An AeroPress, Chestnut C2 hand grinder, and some good quality beans are all that’s required to make a great cup of coffee. The AeroPress was designed with simplicity in mind and there are just a few variables to adjust including grind size, water temperature and immersion time.
The key to making excellent coffee lies in selecting high quality beans and freshly grinding them before use. Hand grinders like the C2 chestnut provide better burrs than electric grinders at a lower cost while also being easier to use. With regards to bean selection, Red Bird Coffee has been found to be one of the best on offer due to its ease when grinding and smooth rich taste. Guatemalan beans tend be well balanced for dark roasts whereas light roasts may require East African seeds for their higher density levels.
In addition, James Hoffmann’s french press technique can also produce an excellent cup of coffee with minimal effort involved - as long as temperature is kept at 190F or below for more subtle flavours - although it requires more babysitting than an aeropress does due its longer brewing time . Similarly using a V60 pour over or moka pot can produce great results too; however they both involve more cleaning afterwards than the aeropress does since they require additional filters or baskets which must be washed each time they’re used.
Ultimately there’s no right or wrong way when it comes to making your favourite drink so experiment with different methods until you find what works best for you!
