Aeropress

The AeroPress is a rapid, total immersion brewing process that makes coffee with low acidity, and smooth, rich flavor. The AeroPress coffee maker is commonly used in the home kitchen but it is lightweight, compact, and durable, making it ideal for use when camping, backpacking, boating, or just traveling.

What you need

To brew with an AeroPress, you need only a few things:
-AeroPress Brewer
-AeroPressFilter
-Kettle
-Burr Grinder
-Kitchen Scale or Tablespoon Measure
-Whole Bean Coffee
-205° Water

1. Getting Started

Place the plunger into the brewing chamber, and place the Aeropress on a flat surface, plunger side down.

Then, heat your mug with hot water, to ensure that your coffee does not lose any heat when being served.

2. Measure & Grind

Grind your coffee to a medium coarse grind. Use 20 grams of coffee for every 325 grams of water. (Approx. a 1 to 16 ratio.), or if you don’t have a scale, use one rounded tablespoon of ground coffee for every 5 oz. cup. Put coffee into the brewing chamber.

3. Let It Bloom

Pour 205° water into the brewing chamber up to the (2) mark (50 g.) being careful to evenly saturate the grounds. Stir for 10 seconds, and then wait until 45 seconds has elapsed.

4. Brew On

Pour water into brewing chamber, until you have reached the desired amount of water. (8 oz, or 250 grams.) Place a filter in the cap, rinse with hot water, and twist the cap onto the chamber.

5. Press

After 1:30 has elapsed, invert the AeroPress onto a sturdy mug, and begin pressing gently & evenly. Push the plunger for 45 seconds, or until you hear a “hissing” sound.

6. Your Filter

Remove the AeroPress from your mug. Remove the cap, and press the plunger to push the grounds out into a compost bin, and rinse your brewer with hot water.

7. Dilute & Enjoy Your Coffee

Because the AeroPress produces a concentrated coffee, we encourage you to taste your brew, and add hot water to taste. Enjoy!
