Topic: Aeropress: speeding up the press (4 msgs / 57 lines)
1) From: Scott Marquardt
Some of the list's participants have received polyester samples; I'd like ye
to try something. Put a poly round in the cap, then a paper round too. Cap
the Aero and do a conventional press (not inverted) with it.
Does the press go faster than you'd expect for the grind you're using, with
the paper?
Remember now, paper on the grind side -- not downstream from the poly.
Let me know the results!

Scott,
I have been following the thread on CG and decided to try it also. I have b=
een using the poly exclusively since I got it from you, and have been using=
 a grind that is a little finer than I used for espresso. 
With that fine of a grind, it was pretty hard to press using both poly and =
the paper. Harder than poly alone. So my results are a bit different than y=
ou got.

That was with the paper on the grind side of the poly?

Ah, I see your CG post.
Yah, the method doesn't yield anything better than a regular Aero cup. It
answered Alan's question about the oils, though subsequent talk about puck
extraction is probably a good cause for more experimentation.
Try an inverted method with a "two steps forward, three steps" back
technique with the plunger to impede puck formation, using only poly. The
cup will probably be dirtier than just a typical inversion method yields.
