AEROPRESS

 

Alan Adler's Aeropress. As close to rocket science as you're going get whilst brewing coffee.

THE GEAR

  • Aeropress
  • 22g of filter roast coffee (Ground between Espresso & Paper Filter)
  • 280g Water (80c)
  • 2 minutes brewing time
 



STEP 1: SET UP

Step 1.jpg

Place a filter into the filter holder and screw it into place on your Aeropress. Place the Aeropress on your vessel of choice. A mason jar or mug works well.

 

 

STEP 2: RINSE

Heat water to 80c. If you don't have the ability to measure your water, bring it to a simmer in a kettle and and let it cool for a minute. Fill the Aeropress half way to rinse the filter and pre-heat the vessel.

 

STEP 3: ADD COFFEE

Grind your 22g of filter roast coffee and throw it into the Aeropress.

(About a scoop of the Aeropress scoop)

We like a grind setting of somewhere between espresso and paper filter. 

 

STEP 4: BLOOM

Fill about 50g of water onto of your grounds to begin the bloom process. Fresh coffee should get about 30 seconds of bloom. At 30 seconds, pour the rest of the water in and pop the plunger on.

STEP 5: PLUNGE

At 1:45 Start plunging. Aim to finishing plunging at 2minutes. We recommending stopping as soon you hear the ‘Hiss’ sound or just before it’s about to start.

Houston, we have coffee.

 

WAIT AND ENJOY

To get the coffee to a drinking temperature a bit quicker, decant the coffee into a room temperature mug or cup of your choice. Otherwise be patient, it’s worth it.
