The Aeropress Brewing Process
Start your timer.
0 – 10s: Pour 40 g of hot water into yourAeropressbrewer, covering all your coffee grounds.
10s – 30s:Watch your fresh-roasted coffee bubble and bloom.
30s – 45s:Pour another 240g of water into the brewer – total water weight of 280g. Stir.
45s – 1m 45s:Place the pressure seal into the brewer at the top. Take off scale but don't plunge yet! Wait for one minute.
1m 45s – 2m 15s:Apply pressure with both hands and slowly plunge your coffee into your cup. Try to stop your plunge just before you hear the hiss at the bottom. This should take 30 seconds.
Serve and Enjoy
Swirl your coffee cup gently, and enjoy. As your coffee gradually cools, enjoy the evolving flavors. Take your filter out and clean your AeroPress with warm water.
Too difficult to plunge? Make yourgrinda little coarser. Too easy to plunge? Make yourgrinda little finer.
Tasting weak? Try 21g coffee with 280g water. Tasting too strong? Try 19g coffee with 280g water. Tasting bitter? Try to avoid the hiss at the end of the plunge, this extracts the bitter flavors from the beans.
Although the AeroPresscan be adapted and creatively brewed in many different ways, try to keep brewing to approximately 2 – 2.5 minutes. Too long in the brewer will over-extract the coffee ending in a bitter taste.
TheAeroPressis a lot of fun to experiment with. If you’ve mastered our recipe, we recommend experimenting with the inverted method (upside down technique). Or if you want to get really deep into the Aeropress brewing methodology, check out thisUltimate Guide to the Aeropress.
Brew, taste, tweak, repeat.
