Brew Guide: AeroPress Brewer
The AeroPress’s unique design mirrors its versatile brewing process since there are several ways to brew coffee or espresso with it. The AeroPress provides a clean, lively cup with rich aroma.
What You Need:
14g of coffee ground fine
225g water just off the boil (about 205° F)
AeroPress paddle or spoon
Measure and Grind:
Measure and grind 14g of coffee — or one rounded AeroPress spoonful.
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 14g of coffee. Then, remove the funnel.
Stir, Plunge and Clean:
Note: For all our brewing methods, we suggest starting with a 1:16 coffee to water ratio which provides an excellent extraction level that maximizes flavor. Feel free to adjust this ratio to achieve a stronger brew if you wish. Should you find that the flavor is stronger than you’d like, however, simply dilute the brewed coffee with fresh, hot water. See our Four Fundamentals to a Perfect Cup for a fuller explanation of the coffee to water ratio under the heading "Proportion."
