To me, Aeropress has always been about fine grind / short brew. So I use a full scoop of coffee (12-15g) at a coarse espresso grind. Add water to above the 4 mark and stir for 30 seconds and press. This yields a little less than 8oz of more or less regular strength coffee.

As others have said, water temperature is important. It should generally be in the 200F - 205F range, with 205F suiting lighter and brighter coffees. It would be worth measuring the temperature a few times - "off boil" is very subjective and varies depending upon the kettle and the amount of water.  A few degrees can make a darker roast harsh or bring out the brightness of a lighter roast.

Gregg.
