Aeropress Brew Guide




The Aeropress is one of the newest brewing methods and the perfect camping or travel partner. It is easy to use, tolerant of different grind sizes, affordable and virtually indestructible. It also makes an incredibly clean and complex and aromatic cup of coffee. However due to its limited capacity, it is really only suitable for single cup brewing.




You will Need:

  • Freshly ground coffee
  • Scales
  • Kettle & water
  • Timer
  • Spoon
  • Aeropress + Paper filter
  • Mug or carafe
  1. Weigh out 15g of beans and grind on a medium fine grind setting
  2. Insert paper filter and set atop your mug or brewing carafe
  3. Boil your kettle, using hot water rinse the filter paper and warm your Aeropress and carafe
  4. Discard the preheat water and add your ground coffee to the Aeropres
  5. Place the Aeropress and carafe on the scales and zero it of
  6. Add 210g of brew water, give the slurry 3 quick stirs, to ensure all the coffee has been wetted and ensure an even extraction and start the timer
  7. Carefully insert the Aeropress plunger top
  8. After 1 minute, remove the plunger and give 3 additional stirs and reinsert the plunge
  9. Gently begin pressing down, aiming to extract all the brewed coffee in 30-45 seconds
