The Aeropress Way
The Aeropress Brewing Method
The Aeropress is the first coffee maker that combines affordability and simplicity with the ability to produce top-quality coffee. This method utilises a breakthrough in the coffee brewing process to yield the smoothest, richest coffee you will ever taste! This really is coffee liberated from the constraints of gravity.
That's why we wanted to share with you a step-by-step guide to making delicious coffee through the Aeropress method.
Firstly, you will need the following to get started:
- Aeropress filters
- Aeropress funnel
- Grinder (optional - although if you grind your coffee beans fresh it will enhance the flavours)
- Scale (optional)
- Your favourite coffee mug
You of course also need a kettle and a timer. Now you have your kit at the ready, it's time to get brewing!
Follow these simple steps below and you will be creating brew-tiful coffee in no time at all:
- Boil your kettle and leave it to rest for a minute.
- Insert the plunger (the inner chamber of your Aeropress) into the outer tube so that the black seal is in line with the number 4. Now stand your press up so that the 4 is closest to the surface.
- Using a scoop (likely to have come with your Aeropress), add in your ground coffee. If you are grinding yourself, we recommend a medium-fine ground coffee
- Timers at the ready! Fill your tube with the rested boiled water so it reaches the bottom of number 1 on the press
- Stir 4-5 times with your paddle, and start your timer for 1 minute.
- Prepare your filter paper, by putting in the filter holder and pouring your water through to rinse it. The benefit of rinsing the filter paper ensures id doesn’t affect the flavour. This means you’ll get each individual delicious flavour notes in your coffee.
- Screw the filter onto your Aeropress
- Once a minute or so has passed, place your favourite mug upside down and carefully flip the whole press
- Slowly and gradually push the inner chamber to brew your coffee
- Enjoy deliciously fresh coffee.
