Lucas has provided us with some great, precise instructions for his championship-winning AeroPress recipe, as quoted below (some of the detail below is missing from the video, so it's important to read):

" It is best to choose Kenya coffee for this recipe but all washed coffees with high density will work fine.

Grind size is a bit coarser than an automatic espresso machine. Grind size is not a big deal cause people will have fixed other attributes so when you learn the recipe you should only vary grind size.

I use 79°C water, but it is very important that you preheat all AeroPress parts for at least 15 seconds with a 79°C temperature. "

It is also important to divide the extraction into 2 parts - this is outlined in the steps below.
