Using AeroPress you get easily and quickly an excellent coffee of finer typically balanced flavour with relatively low caffeine content. In addition, the coffee preparation in it is simple and fun and so offers many possibilities for experimenting. AeroPress consists only of a plastic cylinder, a piston, and strainer, where is a filter paper inserted. For the preparation you need 17 grams of fresh medium fine ground coffee, 250ml water at 85 ° C, AeroPress, filter paper, stirrer and timer. Insert the filter into the filter (shed the filter with hot water to get rid of the taste of paper before using it), put the strainer with the filter onto the cylinder, then put the coffee into the cylinder, place the AeroPress on a sufficiently large cup and slowly pour water on coffee up to the brim, thoroughly mix and leave for 60 seconds to extract. Then insert the piston and slowly push the coffee into the cup until you hear a hissing sound.
Coffee prepared in Moka pot is a homely alternative to espresso. Pot consists of three parts: the bottom container, strainer and the top of Moka pot. For preparation you need fresh medium fine ground coffee and hot water. Pour the hot water to bottom of the pot, just below the pressure relief valve and place the strainer. Put the coffee to Moka pot strainer so it reaches to the brim. Do not force coffee, just line up. Screw the pot tightly and place on stove. Then just wait until the water does not pass through the coffee strainer to the top of the container by buoyancy. When coffee stops to flow smoothly from piston, get the pot from the heat source. Now you can spill coffee into cups.
