Does AeroPress make strong coffee?

The answer is: Yes. You can get a stronger cup of coffee from an Aeropress by (1) adjusting the coffee to water ratio you use; (2) grinding the coffee beans you use finer; (3) tamp the coffee bed in the Aeropress to increase resistance; or (4) use a dark roast coffee.

Why is AeroPress so hard?

When an AeroPress is difficult to press down (to “plunge”), the coffee is ground too fine. A bed of saturated coffee that has been ground too fine is a tough barrier for the water to flow through. The solution is to grind your coffee beans a bit coarser next time you make coffee with your AeroPress.
