Brewing an Aeropress

The Aeropress is as delicious as it is portable. This is a coffee maker that lives in backpacks, kitchens or world championship stages, and here is our favourite recipe for them!

You will need:

– an Aeropress

– an Aeropress scoop, paper and stirrer (provided with an Aeropress)

– a timer (you can use your phone, Google Home or an egg timer if you need)

– a kettle that finished boiling 2 minutes before you brew

– 14g medium-coarse ground coffee

You can also use:

– a set of scales 

– a nice carafe to press into

Let’s get brewing!

  1. Place your paper onto your Aeropress cap. Attach to chamber part of Aeropress
  2. Fill with hot water to rinse paper and preheat your Aeropress
  3. Weigh out 14g medium coarse ground. This should be 1 flat scoop on the provided scoop
  4. Fill up 210g with water. Stir 4 or 5 times
  5. Attach the plunger part gently so you don’t push out too much liquid (you will lose a small amount)
  6. Wait for 1 minute.
  7. At 1 minute, stir 4 or 5 times
  8. Re attach the plunger attachment and plunge slowly. There’s no rush here
  9. Stop when you hear a hiss. Pull the plunger up a little to prevent getting dripped on by hot coffee
  10. Decant and enjoy

 

This device goes great with our filter roast coffees, but also makes a mighty fine brew for any of our coffees.
