Why so serious?
I've used a pour over and an Aeropress.Got to disagree that a pour-over type filter does better than a moka pot. I use a stainless steel type moka pot. I have used a same pour-over contraption they show. Worlds different to me and the moka pot wins hands down. I've never used an Aeropress so I have no idea how it compares.
You can use a reusable metal filter with the Aeropress instead of the disposable paper ones.I've used a pour over and an Aeropress.
Aeropress is smoother... but some might say too smooth. My opinion is that pour over gives you better, fuller flavor (due to longer steeping times) than Aeropress, even though I do enjoy Aeropress.
Water to measures of coffee ratio?
The little dipper my wife uses says " Standard Coffee Measure ". I dipped some out, leveled it and that measure is 2 tablespoons of coffee.Out of curiosity how much coffee do you use with 32 oz of water?
How fine do you grind the beans? My brother cold brewed for years but used off the shelf coffee grounds.Cold brewed here. Water / coffee in a 32 oz. Ball canning jar in the refrig overnight, then through a coffee filter. Not bitter at all.
If you want hot; just zap it in the microwave.
I let sit minimum of 8.5 hours, most often use 11 hrs, light roast coffee works best.Thanks. A coarse grind is what I would have defaulted to.
