Brewing at Home: AeroPress

Posted on

To get the best results out of your home brews, our professional training team have created a series of guides for our favourite methods, so you can achieve delicious balance in your cup, and continue enjoying great coffee at home.

The AeroPress is a superb one-cup brewer which uses high pressure extraction to brew an incredible cup of coffee. This means you can brew with coffee roasted for espresso, as well as filter. For the purpose of our recipe though, we would recommend using a filter roast.

Equipment:

Coffee: 14.4g
Water: 220ml

Recipe:

  1. Prepare all ingredients and equipment
  2. Add filter paper to cap and rinse with plenty of water
  3. Heat brewing water to 97°C
  4. Place AeroPress in inverted position (widened sections on top and bottom of brewer, with screw cap facing up)
  5. Add 14.4g of ground coffee to brewing chamber of AeroPress
  6. Place AeroPress on scales and reset to zero
  7. Start timer and add 220g of water (scale reading 220g)
  8. Stir five times and ensure all grounds are wet and screw cap on the top of the AeroPress
  9. Brew until timer reads 1:30 (90 seconds)
  10. Carefully flip AeroPress on top of the vessel
  11. Press down firmly on the AeroPress to filter the brewed coffee. This should take approximately 30 seconds; if it takes a lot longer, the grind may be too fine and if it takes less than 30 seconds, the grind may be too coarse.

Notes:

  • Grind coffee on a medium setting: using the hand grinder, set burrs to the tightest and unwind 3-4 clicks
