    Aeropress with 1850 Midnight Gold, reducing Comandante grind size to 12 (from 15). 15g:150g (same ratio). Less Lemony, but still Meh

    Fault: Had another Aeropress water leak. What actually happens is this: as I near the end stage of pushing, the remaining water – instead of being pushed downlifts up through the plunger rubber.

    Improv: Same coffee, but this time (~8PM now) by accident I ended up using colder than usual water for Aeropress (I could feel the lack of heat on first sip).

Maybe Water Temperature matters more than I had thought, and that it may be worth investing in a variable-temperature Kettle? Evidently, the best tasting Espresso Italien so far.

    Improv: Second trying of Espresso Italien but Aeropress this time (instead of Moka Pot). Comandante dial 20; 150g hot (not boiling) water and 15g coffee, with 1+ min brew time. Taste - less Italian compared to yesterday with more aggreable notes. Verdict: Aeropress wins, for now. Satisfaction: Excellent A sweet after-taste lingers on (noticeable especially when drinking water) …
