Laughing out loud Yeah exactly! I always wonder what he would think of my coffee. Would love for him to make me a coffee to see what it should actually taste like!

Espresso Ground would be too fine. Tricky between Filter and Cafetière though. I think Filter would probably be better.

Give them an email or call, they are really helpful there. I asked about the aero press and they recommended Filter ground.

Could you be arsed grinding with a hand grinder? Theres a few cheap decent ones around, would make a huge difference

´Filter´ grind. Chris Baca has a great YouTube explainer on french press (assuming that’s what you’re saying by cafetière) and why a coarse grind isn’t necessary

Great video.
Really knows his stuff and slams the products.
Would love to see the video he suggests he’s going to make in the future. ‘Bare essential kit to make good espresso’

@Swede:

We would recommend 'Filter Grind', but Aeropress is very versatile so will basically work with whatever grind you have and you can just adjust brewing times accordingly - shorter time for espresso ground, longer time for cafetiere.

You're welcome mate.

No, I live in good old Bethnal Green. Just ordered from there and had the same question as I also use Aeropress. The above was their response.

anyone had any success with the "no press" french press method? tastes too thin for me, but i prefer my coffee muddy, rather than delicate.

Pay on a prepaid credit card and then cancel it. I’m not sure how they’d get you to complete the minimum order term.
