Mode of operation
You can use the ARAM hands-free, for example if you are travelling with light luggage. However, the steel stand that comes with the ARAM is better and more stable.
You grind the ground coffee finely, like an espresso. You can use about 18g of coffee. The ARAM is already delivered with a small funnel and a tamper. If you want smaller shots, you can also use a 7g sieve (53mm diameter) with about 11g of coffee.
At the same time you can preheat the ARAM with 100°C hot water.
Now you remove the hot water from the preheating and close the mechanism by turning the crank all the way down. Insert the filter and turn it until the two symbols sun and moon are at the same level.
Now fill the ARAM with boiling water. Because it is not heated and absorbs heat, you use boiling water. Then turn the small crank all the way up (38 turns). The water flows to the ground coffee. Now you turn the crank down. At one point you feel the pressure increase. From this point on, you can control the extraction by the pressure with the crank.
You keep turning until you have the right amount of espresso in the glass.
Attention, there may still be hot water in the ARAM. Therefore you turn the crank up again to about the middle and then turn it down completely (with a second cup so that this is not pressed into your espresso). When all water is out, you can remove the puck.
And now it's time to enjoy your espresso.
