How to make Aeropress coffee - Brew Guide

What is Aeropress coffee?

The Aeropress is a piston-style brewer that forces coffee through a thin paper filter directly into a cup. A rapid brewing process extracts the most flavour from your beans, giving you more rich, pure-tasting coffee with no grit, no bitterness, and less acidity. It brews just a single serving of coffee at a time, but its size and durability make it a favourite coffee device among travellers and campers.

What You’ll Need

18 grams freshly-roasted whole bean coffee

Scale

Grinder (we recommend burr grinders for consistency and performance)

AeroPress

Paper or metal filter

Stirring utensil

Kettle

Hot water (195–205 F)

Timer

How to brew Aeropress coffee

Brew Time
8-10 minutes

Step 1:
Weigh 200 grams water, bring to a boil and let cool

Step 2:
Weigh 18 grams coffee

Step 3:
Grind coffee medium-fine (roughly the size of granulated table salt)

Step 4: Add grounds to AeroPress and level the coffee bed
We recommend brewing "inverted" with the plunger on the bottom.

Step 5:
Begin brewing

Step 6: Start the timer and add 100 grams hot water
Enough to wet all the grounds and fill the AeroPress about halfway. Stir a few times to saturate all grounds and ensure even brewing–this helps to release CO2 gas. Add the remaining 100 grams water, pouring evenly to the top.

Step 7:
At 1:45, stir a few more times, then secure the filter and cap to the AeroPress

Step 8: At 2 minutes, flip onto cup or carafe and press down slowly
Stop pressing when you hear a hissing sound. Total brew time should be around 2.5 minutes.

Step 9:
Serve and enjoy!
