Aeropress brew guide

You will need:

  • your aeropress
  • a washed aeropress filter or Able disk. We recommend the disk!
  • something to stir your coffee with
  • a cup- make it aeropress diameter to make your job easy
  • timer- optional
  • scales- optional
  • about 200ml of fresh water just off the boil. We recommend 90 deg. C
  • 15-20g freshly roasted filter coffee (day 3-14)

What’s next?

  • Insert the filter into the Aeropress, and pre heat it and your cup with some hot water. Discard.
  • Set the aeropress up withthe filter over your cup and add the coffee to the brew chamber.
  • Start the timer and add just enough water to wet the coffee. Wait for a while- say 20 sec of longer if you prefer stronger (up to a minute)
  • Add the rest of of the water, give everything a stir for perhaps 15 sec and then insert the plunger.
  • Plunge away. We think it’s good to so some work to get the best from the coffee.
  • Enjoy!
