You will need:
- Round filter
- Aeropress funnel
- Stir Rod
- 18g of coffee
- 270g of water at 85C
- Carafe or mug
The first recipe we use for our aeropress uses a 1:15 ratio, but can be slightly adjusted if you prefer a stronger or lighter cup of coffee.
Step 1: Mount filter into aeropress and rinse with hot water from your kettle - this prevents any paper flavours from mixing in with your coffee.
Step 2: Pour 18g of coffee ground on a medium setting into the base of the aero press. Shake the aeropress so that the coffee is leveled.
Step 3: Pour 60g of 95°C water, making sure to fully coat the dry coffee grounds, and let pre infuse for 35s. When coffee is freshly roasted, the grounds will bloom while they release more gas.
Step 4: After 35s, complete with water until 270g, give it a stir or two, and place the plunger back in the base.
Step 5: At the 2 minute mark, plunge slowly for 1 minute until no liquid remains in the aeropress and you hear air hissing.
Step 6: Enjoy your coffee! And make sure to promptly clean your aeropress to avoid oil build up.
