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)
- 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.
