Step 1: Boil Water
Heat the water in your kettle to 175F, or bring water to boil and let sit for 1 minute. A gooseneck kettle is preferred to help with the control of the pour, but any kettle will do.
Step 2: Preparing Your Aeropress
We’re going to brew this inverted! This method will prevent losing some of your delicious final product. Assemble your Aeropress and make sure it’s dry moisture can compromise the seal.
Step 3: Grinding and Measuring
Aeropress calls for a medium-fine grind, something resembling table salt.
We recommend a 1:2 coffee-to-water ratio, but as always adjust to your taste. Aeropress comes with its own scoop, and one scoop is roughly 16g. You will need 2 scoops of coffee and 64g of hot water.
Step 4: The Brew
- Wet the paper filter and place it in the holder, screw into place.
2. Place the whole device, flared side up, on the scale. The numbers should be upside down.
3. Add your grounds to the chamber
4. Pour water until it reaches the top line of the Aeropress. Let it steep for 20-40 seconds, depending on how strong you like it.
5. Cup your mug over the Aeropress and swiftly flip the entire thing over.
6. Push the plunger down until you have pushed all the air out, you should hear a hissing sound.
Step 5: The Final Product
Taste and dilute to your liking.
Enjoy your creation!
