In this series I'll work through all the tiny things that I've noticed about brewing Aeropress coffee over the last 3 years of brewing with one.
Because I consider it to be the most stable variable I'm beginning with water temperature. Once you've got your preferences for water temp it's pretty much set and forget. Unless, like me, you want to change it just for fun.
When a company does a ‘scientific’ study on the benefits of their own product I tend to be a little sceptical. According to Toddy, (a company that sells a fancy gadget to replace a jar) cold brewed coffee is 67% less acidic than regular coffee. The only evidence they provide is their own word that they’ve done a scientific study.
So I thought I’d conduct a scientific study of my own.
