The Aeropress works in a similar way to a French Press. Made of food-safe plastic the Aeropress acts as a big syringe. Water and coffee to go into the lower chamber. A paper filter is placed in the cap. Then after 30-45 seconds of brewing time, the plunger is pushed down and this forces the water through the coffee and the paper filter resulting in a very smooth, full-flavoured brew.
We found the best way to prepare coffee in the AeroPress as follows:
- Add 1 scoop or 14g of freshly ground coffee. You need it ground finer than French Press but courser than Espresso a drip grind would be perfect.
- Boil fresh water and wait 60 seconds before putting water onto coffee 85C is ideal.
- Add water to about 15mm below the rim
- Stir for 10 seconds
- Add a touch more hot water to top up then plunge the Aeropress slowly! You can then add some more hot water if you wish, place in a travel mug and off you go!!
