Aeropress Brew Guide

FILTER ROAST RECIPE

YOU WILL NEED
  • Aerobie Aeropress
  • 2x Aeropresso Microfilters or 1x Able disk filter
  • 14-16g of filter roast coffee, medium-coarse grind
  • Stirrer
  • Timer
  • Scales
  • Sturdy vessel
  • 220ml fresh water, heated to just below boiling (approximately 98°C)
PREPARATION

Place the filter inside the cap and screw it onto the base of the Aeropress. Then preheat the Aeropress by pouring plenty of hot water into the upper brew chamber; this will also rid your filters of any papery residue. Once hot, place the Aeropress on top of the vessel and place both on to a scale, then tare.

Add the ground coffee to your Aeropress and tare the scale. With a coffee to water ratio of 1:2 (eg. 14g of coffee to 28g of water), add hot water to saturate the grinds. Let the coffee bloom for 30 seconds.

00:30

Pour the remaining water until the scale reads 220g. Stir back and forth for 10 seconds

00:40

Insert the end of the plunger into your Aeropress. Using firm, even pressure, press down on the plunger – making sure to stop before the rubber meets coffee grinds. This should take around 30 seconds.

Drink as is, or dilute with a splash of water or milk.

TIPS

We recommend a sturdy mug that can withstand the pressure you'll use at the end of your brew. For a stronger brew, add a little more coffee, or let it sit for another 30-60 seconds after stirring. If you’re having trouble plunging, your coffee may be too fine for water to pass through easily, try a slightly coarser grind.
