I got one of these Aeropress coffee makers for Christmas. I’ve been practicing and playing around with the process and amount of coffee for a few months, and I think I’ve really got it just right now.

Aeropress coffee maker

Basically, it makes a 4oz cup of espresso, and uses a pretty good pile of coffee grounds to do it. I’ve been drinking Pete’s Major Dickason’s blend. It’s a strong, robust, dark coffee and when I make it with the Aeropress, it’s best enjoyed with a fork.

The really funny thing is how the caffeine seems to really get to me. I’ve just finished my one cup of the day (I have to limit myself) and I’m getting heart palpitations! I kinda like that.

… maybe it’s just me?
