Since its invention in 2005, the AeroPress has quickly become an incredibly popular brewing device that produces excellent coffee.
The benefits of the AeroPress are its small size, ease of use (and clean) and budget-friendly price tag.
A total immersion brewing technique which produces rich flavour with low acidity, the AeroPress uses paper micro filters which results in grit free coffee with minimal bitterness.
Along with the original model, a more portable AeroPress Go model was introduced recently. The sturdy plastic construction makes both versions perfect for travel.
Follow the below steps in our brew guide to learn how to use and make delicious coffee with an AeroPress.
- AeroPress (either the original or Go model)
- Paper disc filters.
- 14g fresh ground coffee. We recommend a grind of 5.7. Our Espresso, Private and Organico blends are all great choices for AeroPress coffee.
Place the paper filter into the black cap and attach cap to the AeroPress.
Rinse the filter and heat your glass by pouring hot water through the filter into the glass. Discard the water from the glass.
Remove cap and connect the two cylinders of the AeroPress.
Place coffee grounds into the AeroPress using the included scoop.
Using a circular motion, pour the hot water gently to completely saturate the grounds, then continue pouring to fill the chamber. Water should always be hot but not boiling, as boiling water will burn the coffee grounds. Aim for 92°c.
Carefully stir using the paddle to ensure there are no pockets of dry coffee grounds.
Attach the black cap with the rinsed filter inside.
Place your cup on top.
Carefully flip the AeroPress over. Plunge firmly and steadily for 30 seconds. Enjoy!
Remember, when making coffee at home:
- Fresh is best when it comes to coffee – we recommend buying your coffee in smaller quantities, more frequently.
- We custom-grind for all brewing methods – just tell our staff how you make your coffee at home, or select your brewing method when you order online.
- Use filtered water where possible.
