Our Aeropress brew guide breaks down the steps, making it easy to brew along. Give it a try next time you’re hitting the trails.

 

TOOLS NEEDED:

AeroPress®

AeroPress® filters

• Electric Hot Water Kettle (Hario® Buono or Bonavita® gooseneck spout kettle is recommended for controlled pouring)

Digital scale with ability to measure grams

• AeroPress® stir paddle or spoon with a longer stem

MEASUREMENTS:

• 14 grams of coffee and 225 grams (~7.5 oz) of water

GRIND:

• Fine – coffee should be the size of  common ground pepper

WATER:

• Filtered water. Temperature between 195-205◦ F (92-96◦ C)

METHOD:

1. Place paper filter in filter cap and rinse with hot water.

2. Place plunger into chamber with the rubber seal just below the mark on the chamber.

3. Turn AeroPress® upside down and set on counter with chamber side up. Yes, the numbers on the side will be upside down.

4. Fill with hot water to preheat. When ready with ground coffee, hot water and scale dump hot water from AeroPress®.

5. Put AeroPress® upside down on scale and tare scale.

6. Add ground coffee and tare scale.

7. Start timer and immediately add 150 grams of hot water to chamber.

8. Use AeroPress® stirrer or long-stemmed spoon to stir contents no more than four times to fully agitate brew and knock down bloom.

9. Add water until scales registers 225 grams.

10. When scale reaches 1:30 minutes, screw filter cap with paper filter onto the chamber.

11. Turn AeroPress® right side up and set directly onto the rim of a cup.

12. Firmly press straight down and extract coffee into the cup taking no more than 15 seconds.

13. Thoroughly wash brewing equipment after every use.

 

TIPS:  If your coffee is very fresh, the bloom may be too robust to add all 225 grams of water in one pour. Add as much water as possible then wait a second for the bloom to dissipate and then continue adding water until you reach 225 grams of water.
