Subject: answers to your random questions.
 

Are you trying to make espresso with your aeropress?  (sorry if I'm confused but you mention them in the same sentence).

What grinder do you have?

A brush would help clean your grinder. And clear the burr assembly from time to time as oils build up.  you need two brushes, a broad one and a smaller one for for detailing around nooks.  Go to an art store. Plenty of soft brushes to choose from or you can pay extra for a brush designed specifically for this purpose but I think art brushes are just as good.  I use them..  My bigger brush is an old make-up blush brush that I washed. .
