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.
Mount filter into aeropress and rinse with hot water from your kettle - this prevents any paper flavours from mixing in with your coffee.
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.
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.
After 35s, complete with water until 270g, give it a stir or two, and place the plunger back in the base.
At the 2 minute mark, plunge slowly for 1 minute until no liquid remains in the aeropress and you hear air hissing.
Enjoy your coffee! And make sure to promptly clean your aeropress to avoid oil build up.
