AEROPRESS

The Aeropress is a relatively new way to brew coffee, invented in 2005 by Alan Alder who also invented the Aerobie Flying Disc!

Using a simple piston design to compress air at the top and extract your coffee evenly with no mess and easy clean up. 

Coffee from an Aeropress is super clean and uniform due to the even pressure applied and the paper filters which absorb some of the oils from the coffee. The parts fit together for travel so it’s also great for camping, on the train or avoiding hotel coffee!

Equipment Needed:

  • Aeropress
  • Aeropress Filters
  • Digital Scales
  • Timer
  • Teaspoon

Method:

  1. Place a filter paper into the filter cap and screw into place.
  2. Rinse the paper with hot water to remove any papery taste and heat up your brewer.
  3. Place the Aeropress cap side down onto your brewing vessel of choice.
  4. Add the ground coffee to the brewer.
  5. Pour in the hot water and stir to make sure all the grounds are evenly saturated.
  6. Place the plunger into the brew chamber to create a seal.
  7. At one minute remove the plunger and gently stir the “slurry” three times.
  8. Place the plunger into the brew chamber and gently plunge at 1 minute 10 seconds aiming to finish the brew in two minutes.
