  1. Areopress, Chemex, and the list goes on. So many ways to brew coffee. I wake up every morning and find my self contemplating what am I going to try next.

    I have been having a lot of fun, this last week with the recipes posted pertaining to the areopress, but was thinking it would be cool to do the same thing for the Kone.

    Cheers, Sean!

  2. I find Jeff Verellen’s winning recipe from the World Aeropress Championship adapted very well to using the Disk-Fine. ( Here’s my adaptation of his recipe.

    Heat water to 90c. Attach Disk-Fine filter to AeroPress and place press (non-inverted ) on the receiver. Pour some hot water through the AeroPress to preheat. I pour down the side as I spin the AeroPress to preheat.

    Grind 17g fresh beans to medium-fine (20 on my Baratza Encore). Discard the hot water in the receiver from preheat, then add the ground coffee to the AeroPress.

    Slowly pour 50g of water at 83c over all the grounds to wet and bloom for about 40-45 seconds.

    After bloom, very slowly start to pour 215g of water at 79c for about 30 seconds. When you pour, try to re-wet the coffee and not separate the wet coffee bed. A good pour-over kettle will help with this.

    Press gently for about 30 seconds. Leave about 50g of slurry in the AeroPress and discard. Gently pour your brew from the receiver into your cup and savor!
