1. Boil water in kitchen
2. fill nice ceramic cup with as much boiling water as i want coffee
3. walk back to desk, water cooling as i go, warming up the nice cup
4. pour water through funnel into inverted aeropress - ie the plunger is rubber side up on my desk and the "sleeve" of it is connected on top
5. put a spoon of waitrose espresso grind in on top of the now not too hot water/. the aeropress is warmed up though, leading to a more consistent temperature. the water isn't hot enough to scald the coffee, but the excess heat has all been used to warm up everything else, making it stay warmer longer.
5b. OPTIONAL: add a dash of cinnamon
6. mix the coffee in with the aeropress mixy stick thing
7. put a filter in the aeropress filter holder
8. quickly slap the filter onto the aeropress, making sure the filter's in place or the "coffee" just spurts out.
9. quickly flip onto a little pyrex bowl
10. aeropress into the pyrex bowl hard - it can take it
11. pour from the pyrex into the ceramic cup - pyrex is smaller than the denby so i can easily pour it without spillage, as any run off down the side of the pyrex will end up in the cup anyway
12: enjoy coffee
13: let the coffee grounds dry up in the aeropress
next time i want a coffee i just pop the dry puck of grounds onto a piece of waste paper, wrap it up and bin it at my leisure
