This looks great. I think being able to specify the tags in the URL scheme is especially helpful.

Recipes | World Aeropress Championships

I bet this is some great tasting coffee. For reference, here’s my own Aeropress recipe:

  1. One or two fingers of espresso-ground coffee on top of pre-dampened filter.

  2. Pour in some hot water, stir. Pour in a bit more and put the top bit on.

  3. Wait two minutes then push it down into the cup.

  4. Chuck some more hot water in, maybe some milk on top, bit of sugar.

  5. Slurp away!
