Curious that yours self-healed. I've wondered if I could do something to mine to rejuvenate it.

Posted August 1, 2013 link

Full disclosure of my process is that I try to eject the puck quickly, then I remove the plunger.  I rinse the cylinder in hot water, then I put the rubber stopper under running hot water and gently rub my finger across it to get the oils dislodged.  I suppose I am gently re-flattening it as I do so, and this may account for the 'healing' mine experienced.

Paul,

I was able to work a better quote and reduce the shipping to Canada.  I updated the shipping to Canada to only $10.00.  I hope that helps.

Cheers,
CCP

That sounds better. But the kickstarter pages don't reflect that. They recognized that I'm out of the US and ask for $20.

As I said above, I was interested enough to contribute, but I didn't see the merit in paying the same shipment to Thailand for Canada.

Posted August 1, 2013 link

I'm interested too Paul, & now that CCP (Dwayne) has offered a better shipping deal for Canada.,  I hope more Canuck members would be interested to contribute too. {;-)

That's exactly what I do every time.

Did the healing of yours coincide with spring or summer?

Okay I have been using my aeropress for about a year now and I'm starting to try and get more out of my brews. What I have noticed is a lot of the world aeropress champs methods are brewed at a low temperature (75/80c ect) I have always had my bonavita kettle set to 92-93c and brewed from there. What are other people doing?

I've been using near-boiling water lately.

I've been doing this because the coffee is so fresh that I pretty much have to pre-infuse. The cooler (~40C) pre-infusion water pulls the strike temperature down below 90C despite using boiling water. When I'm not pre-infusing I usually use 92-94C water. But you'll find that opinions about what works best vary considerably. Experiment. Taste. Decide.

I usually pre infuse around 30g of 92c water for 30 seconds or so then add the remaining. Should I be pre infusing with cooler water? What effect would that have?

I don't think it matters. If you add 92C water to an equal weight of coffee in a cold Aeropress the pre-infusion brew temperature will be low enough that the extraction going on isn't a big deal, or at least that's what I imagine. The only difference is that the colder the water (and the larger the percentage of pre-infusion to the total) the lower the limit on the final strike temperature.

I use warm water simply because it's convenient. I don't have a kettle to keep water at a constant temperature so I just use hot tap water for the rare times that I feel there's a need to pre-infuse.

Like Alan I generally make a concentrated press that is used for lattes.  My recipe is: inverted, 14 g coffee ground in a Lido, 80 to 85 g water at 195 F, stir, steep for 30 seconds or more, press at medium speed.  I sometimes steep longer if I want a stronger flavor in the latte.
