A simple method to make one delicious cup of coffee.
For simplicity, no mess, no fuss brewing, we love the "Inverted" Aeropress brewing method.
For the perfect brew, we recommend...
- Aeropress: How far you take this versatile little brewer is completely up to you. We recommend that you start with a filter ground coffee.
- Pouring kettle: The ribbed handle provides the control and the classic curved spout adds precision when pouring.
- Scales: These scales are ideal for improving accuracy when making coffee.
- Reusable filter disk: Replaces the regular paper filters and allows more oils from the coffee to come through and results in a fuller bodied brew.
Let's get into the recipe!
- Heat water to 90 ˚C.
- Grind 17g of coffee to a filter consistency. What aromas can you identify?
- Remove the plunger and the cap from the chamber.
- Place a paper filter into the filter cap and soak it with hot water. Set it aside for now.
- Setup the AeroPress in an Inverted Position by placing the plunger facing up on the counter. Now turn the brewing chamber upside down and place it securely onto the plunger. You will want the stopper to rest in the middle of the #4 position.
- Use the funnel to add the ground coffee. The funnel keeps helps get the grinds neatly into the chamber.
- Start the timer and pour hot water into the chamber to the middle of the #2.
- Use the paddle to stir the ground coffee into the water to ensure that the grounds are completely saturated.
- Add hot water to the #1 mark.
- Secure the Filter Cap on the AeroPress. Hold onto the AeroPress where the two chambers meet and with your other hand, screw the filter onto the brewer.
- When 60 seconds have passed, grab the AeroPress holding both chambers together and flip it so it is over your mug.
- Once the AeroPress is back right-side up and over the mug, proceed with pressing down the plunger. Use a slow steady press. It should take about 20 seconds to fully press.
- Create different experiences with your Aeropress by varying coffee dose, grind consistency, water temperature and brewing times.
