What Makes Aeropress Coffee Taste Different From French Press
Are you a French Press devotee or an Aeropress ride or die kind of coffee drinker? While the two brew methods may appear similar to the untrained eye, they produce remarkably different cups of coffee.
While there are many variables, the basic method for brewing with a French Press is to use a coarsely ground coffee, let it steep in near-boiling water for five minutes, and then press down the plunger to filter out the grounds. On the other hand, the Aeropress brews using a finer grind and the added pressure from its plunger.
While you can't go wrong with either method, deciding between the two may just come down to preference. If you're someone who likes darker roasts or more rounded flavors, then the French Press is probably for you and if you enjoy lighter flavors with more sweetness, then the Aeropress will be your new favorite.
