Coffee on a trip


Whenever I go for local trip, one of the biggest problem is finding good coffee. Considering most hotels served horrible coffee, what would be better than to Do It Yourself, the Aeropress way. And on a recent trip, that’s exactly what I do. Of course, I’m travelling within Malaysia.


3 important stuff: Fresh roasted coffee, Aeropress and a decent hand-grinder.


Morning task: 14g fresh roasted coffee into my Hario Slim Grinder


Morning exercise… phew… 2 minutes of hardword 😀 (no say I no do exercise, ok)


Inverted method if my preference. Now, have your fresh boiled water ready. Since did not bring thermometer, I’ll let the water sit for 30 seconds. (it was too hot, should let it sit for 45 seconds at least). Using the Aeropress the Inverted method allows for better control of the variables especially steeping time. And it looks cooler too 😀


Steep for 80 seconds. Reverse over and press down gently.

There you go. As good as it can get.
