What is The Best Ratio For AeroPress?

The best ratio for AeroPress coffee is a matter of personal preference, but a commonly recommended ratio is 1:15 (coffee to water) for a perfect cup of AeroPress coffee. This means that for every gram of coffee, you should use 15 grams of water.

But some people prefer a stronger coffee and may use a 1:13 ratio, while others prefer a milder coffee and may use a 1:17 ratio. You can customize this ratio as per your preference.

Is Aeropress Stronger Than French Press?

The strength of AeroPress coffee versus French press coffee is subjective and depends on personal preference. Both methods can produce strong coffee, but AeroPress coffee tends to have a smoother and less bitter taste.

both AeroPress and French press coffee can be strong, but the AeroPress will result in a smoother and less bitter taste, while the French press will result in a more full-bodied and robust flavor.
