  1. Start by boiling water and let it cool to 94 degrees Celsius (201.2 degrees Fahrenheit).

  2. Weigh out 15.5 grams of Castillo Caicedo coffee beans and grind them to a medium-fine consistency, similar to table salt.

  3. Assemble your Aeropress, flip it, and place it on a scale. Moisten the paper filter.

  4. Add the ground coffee into the Aeropress chamber.

  5. Pour 240 grams (approximately 8.5 ounces) of 94°C (201.2°F) water into the chamber over the coffee grounds in a circular motion, aiming to complete the pour within 20 seconds.

  6. After pouring, give the coffee and water mixture a gentle stir for about 10 seconds to ensure even saturation.

  7. At the 40-second mark on your timer, securely attach the Aeropress cap with the filter, forming a tight seal.

  8. Wait until the timer reaches 1 minute and 40 seconds for the coffee to steep.

  9. At 1 minute and 40 seconds, flip the Aeropress back to its original position and begin pressing down gently but consistently. Aim to complete the press by 2 minutes and 40 seconds.

  10. Once you've finished pressing, your aromatic Castillo Caicedo coffee is ready to savor.

  11. Enjoy the rich and flavorful coffee brewed using this Aeropress method!
