My first cup brewed with an AeroPress and 85 C water produced bad coffee, which is difficult to do with an AeroPress.
I decided to turn it into a darker roast. I took some of the coffee, put it in a pan in an oven preheated to 350 F degrees for 20 minutes. I let it cool for awhile and put it in a glass jar.
The next day I made a cup of coffee with it using a small four-piece phin using about 60 ml of 85 C water. After dripping for five minutes, I added warm water to taste, plus cream and sugar. Now this was actually pretty good coffee.
The problem is there is better house brand supermarket coffee available in this price range.
I see this is traditionally made with a moka pot. But it seems to me the espresso grind would be too fine for a moka pot. The moka pot is often viewed as sort of the poor man's espresso machine. My experiences with them was universally bad, but I see there is advice on Youtube on how to avoid making bitter coffee with them. However, people I have talked with who use them say they like bitter coffee, so go figure. I still don't see the point of something so complex to use and clean that uses near-boiling water on the grounds.
A phin will give you concentrated coffee, but without scalding the beans. And it loves fine ground coffee like this.
I don't recommend this unless you like this Cuban style coffee. Try using a phin. I doubt you will get satisfactory results in a drip maker. But if you do buy it, try re-roasting it. This may be the real key.
Cafe Bustelo, another coffee by the same brand that is in the bright yellow brick packaging, has a better flavor than this coffee for me. I would describe this coffee as more earthy, and Bustelo as more roasty. I ordered this to try because I love Bustelo, but it turns out I prefer Bustelo in the end. This coffee is still a great deal for the price, and if you like a more earthy coffee flavor you will love this. Worked great in my French press.
I have given the 10oz bricks for stocking stuffers the past two Christmases as well.
we have used this product for over 20 years!
This price was unreal!
The bricks are the same as the can, meaning the look, taste, etc.
We thought Bricks might be different but they are not!
Cheaper than the can, so save your can and buy bricks, one brick will
fit in can...
Price is a god send!
