“Aeropress is for me the most versatile brewing device. You can really craft your coffee to the taste you prefer, which you can’t always do with other methods. Moreover, I really like this creamy and silky feel in the mouth that the Aeropress can produce. I think you can get it with every coffee you are using, you just need to find the point when this happens.”
