Aeropress: Diluting

Posted by Cristina Dias on

You will need:

  • Scale
  • Round filter
  • Aeropress funnel
  • Stir Rod
  • Aeropress
  • 35g of coffee
  • 400g of water at 85C
  • Carafe or mug  


This recipe uses 35g of coffee and a total of 400g of water, for a stronger ratio of around 1:11.

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: Grind 35g of coffee on a fine grind, just a bit coarser than espresso grounds and pour into the aeropress base.

Step 3: Pour 150g of water and let steep for 2 minutes.

Step 4: During the 2 minutes, stir the grounds so they are all coated with water.

Step 5: After 2 mins, plunge the coffee into a carafe.

Step 6: Dilute with 250g of water on the scale to complete the 400g total.

Step 7: Enjoy your coffee!
