    I'll be experimenting with metal filters now, I have one already but might try some different ones to see what effect they have.
    An aeropress concentrate diluted with water isnt technically an americano, its still a filter coffee . Its a bypass brew.

    Glad you're enjoying the virtues of long steeps. A long steep full immersion (all the coffee and all the final water) brew is even better.

    As we share the aeropress in work time isnt always on our side.

    My method is 16g coffee, 230g of water this equates to. Fill to number 2 and stir. Fill to 4 and leave it drop to 3. Plunger in place for a minute then depress.

    I use 17g inverted, fill with a little water, agitate and wait for bloom. Then fill to the too and wait a minute before plunging. Still testing though, very new to the aeropress!
