I got an AeroPress about a week ago and I have been experimenting with it.
I'm in a temporary country until the rest of the year and I am getting ground coffee online (can only have decaf), so I do NOT control the grind size.
I like thick coffees and I bought a metal filter.
Using the inverted method, I put one scoop of coffee and then I tried various amount of water for the brew + some dilution afterward. I have tried two different decaf Arabicas from Amazon and I use 80°C water.
Unfortunately, most of the results end up the same way: a very watery feel without any texture, a taste that is not very palatable but a very strong over-brewed aftertaste.
What am I doing wrong? and how can I make it thicker? Can I create crema with the AeroPress?
this is the grind size:
