Hold the mug upside down over the top of your aeropress after you’ve screwed the lid/filter on, then flip it all over together.

Also if your coffee tasted tangy out of a French press, probably your grind is too coarse or you’re not steeping long enough. Usually it takes me 2-3 brews with a particular coffee to get the grind and time correct. Just enough time to run out of coffee and start the process over again with a new one.

Basically- bitter means over-extracted and you need a bigger grind, less time, and/or cooler water. Sour means under-extracted and it’s the opposite problem. You need a finer grind, more time, and/or hotter water. That all assumes your coffee/water ratio is in a decent range. It’s best to hold most of these constant and just mess with one thing at a time.

I know that a disc golf forum seems like an odd place to ask for coffee advice - but that is VERY helpful. Thank you! I do have a burr grinder so I can adjust the grind, but I didn't know the specifics on how it would change. That's awesome.

If you haven't seen yet.... We have officially launched "CoffeEmac!"

Each sale of this dark roasted Sumatran will directly support Eric Mcabe.

Great coffee. Better guy.

Any chance of a re-stock on the Ring of (Camp)fire? I slept on it and when I went to finally place an order yesterday, I saw that it's sold out.

Yes - I should be placing my 1st order very soon. I looked earlier this week, and all of the dark roasts were sold out. This is perfect.

I look at breakfast blends like most coffee folks look at decalf - with a bit of a sneer that seems to say, "Why bother?" I can drink it, but I prefer the darker roasts.

However, a lot of that seems to be because they all ended up too tangy for me - and now I have some advice (see above) to combat that! I was 2 notches away from the finest grind on my burr grinder, so I moved it to the finest grind this morning. I made the 1st cup for my wife (even though she's a heathen that puts creamer in hers), and then I started on mine. She came in the kitchen, fussing at kids, picked up the coffee and sipped it and said...

"Wow - that's good!"

Now I feel bad for coming here to say that your tip of the coarser grind helped smooth out the Ro(C)F I'm using an aeropress inverted, but still worked. After about halfway through a cup I was noticing not so much a bitterness, but a taste that wasn't right. Will keep experimenting, but you pointed me in the right direction.

Order placed... also a mug and a couple of minis, which should make it taste better.
