How to Brew AeroPress

The AeroPress was invented by Alan Adler, an American inventor and physicist, in 2005. It was designed to brew a single serving of coffee using air pressure and gentle immersion. The AeroPress quickly gained popularity among coffee enthusiasts for its simplicity, portability, and the ability to produce a smooth and rich cup of coffee.


What you'll need:

Cafetière/French Press
30g ground coffee (medium-coarse grind)
500ml boiled water, tablespoon
scales, timer and a mug


Step 1

Add 30g (3.5 heaped tablespoons) of ground coffee
to the cafetière and pour over 500ml of boiling water.


Step 2

Start your timer for 10 minutes and stir briefly with a
spoon to make sure the coffee grounds are fully saturated.


Step 3

At 5 minutes give the cafetière a quick swirl,
this invigorates the grounds one more time.


Step 4

At 10 minutes push the plunger just below the coffee,
you don't want to compress the grounds as this will add
unwanted bitterness to the cup.


Step 5

Your coffee is ready to serve, pour and enjoy!


Notes:

Decant all of the coffee in to a carafe or mugs
to prevent over extraction.
