Currently I'm using a Baratza Preciso with an Aeropress, until I purchase a real espresso machine. Does anyone have experience with this setup to be able to provide me with the best setting to set the Preciso at to get the best flavor from my extractions? Thanks

depends on what you want,

my advice would be to go on a longer extraction time (approx 2min) as I found you have a better all around extraction.

Then it's all about timing in grind. Get yourself a timer and thermometer.

there is different technique that you can look at http://www.brewmethods.com

Your post reminded me of this blog post from James Hoffmann: http://www.jimseven.com/2010/11/04/cupping-vs-french-press/

Although the brew methods are different, I think you can apply the same tests messing with grind and time to the aeropress to get a great extraction
