This rather strange apparatus was conceived by the folks who brought us the Aerobie flying disc in the 1980’s. The AeroPress is extremely durable and easily portable, making it a great option for both travellers and home users. It produces a beautiful, full bodied brew, while still allowing all the more subtle qualities of the coffee to shine through.
What you need:
AeroPress, gram scale, timer, filtered water, grinder, whole beans and your favourite mug
Bring to a boil about 400 grams of water enough to fill both the AeroPress and your mug.
Place a paper filter inside the detachable plastic cap.
Weigh out and grind 15 grams of coffee. You want a fine grind for Aeropress - just a little finer than you would for a Pourover/ V60 or as coarse as table salt.
Assemble the AeroPress by pushing the rubber end of the narrower vessel into the wider vessel so it sits inside, just below the number 4 mark. Residual moisture in the Aeropress can affect the seal, so make sure it’s all dry.
