What you need
1.Prep the AeroPress
Get the AeroPress ready to brew by placing two filters in the basket. Next, preheat the brewer and rinse the filters with hot water. This gets rid of any paper flavor and warms everything up.
2.Measure and grind
Measure and grind 15g of coffee. Grind the coffee about as fine as table salt.
3. Add coffee
Discard the rinse water from your mug and filter basket. Affix the basket to the bottom of the brew chamber and place it on top of the mug. If it’s handy, use the funnel (or coffee loader) that comes with the AeroPress to add 15g of coffee.
4. Add water
Start your timer when you pour 230g of hot water (about 92°C) into your brewer and allow it to brew 60 sec.
5. Stir and plunge
At 1:00, stir the slurry with a spoon or paddle. Put the plunger on and gently press down with steady pressure, stopping as soon as you hear a hissing sound. This entire brew process should take just under two minutes.
The AeroPress is easy to clean. Simply take off the basket and pop out the coffee grounds and filter. Clean the rubber plunger with hot kettle water and you’re ready for your next brew.
