Aeropress is a great way to brew really clean tasting coffee. It’s small enough to take on adventures and really simple to use. We prefer to brew using the inverted method of brewing, turning the press upside down to brew and then flipping it the right way up to press. Make sure to hold both sections of the press when turning it over. Contents may be hot!
Everything you’ll need! Aeropress, Kettle, Break Fluid Coffee, Filter paper, Scales, Scoop and Stirrer. Just add water!
Weigh out 15-16g of medium ground coffee. If you haven’t got scales, 15-16g is approximately a lightly heaped Aeropress scoop.
Bring your kettle to the boil and leave it to cool for a couple of minutes. The ideal temp for your coffee to brew is 94°C. If you have a temperature controlled kettle set it to 96°C to allow for a little bit of cooling as the water hits the cold aeropress.
Invert your Aeropress and add your ground coffee.
Insert the micro filter into the filter cap and wet it a little.
Set your timer for 1 minute 30 seconds and pour 190g of water onto your coffee. If you don’t have a scale that’s about an inch from the top of the Aeropress.
Stir! This releases any clumps of coffee and improves the brewing process.
Screw the filter cap into the Aeropress. Place a mug upside down onto the Aeropress and carefully turn it over. Wait for the timer to hit 1.30
Holding the Aeropress firmly, slowly push down the plunger until all the coffee is extracted and you start to hear air released.
