Step-by-Step Guide to Brewing Aeropress Coffee at Home

1. Gather Your Equipment:

  • You will need an Aeropress brewer, Aeropress filters, coffee grinder, digital scale, kettle, stirrer, and timer.

2. Boil Water:

  • Heat filtered water to around 80-85°C, slightly cooler than boiling.

3. Prepare Your Aeropress:

  • Place a paper filter in the Aeropress cap and rinse it with hot water to remove any paper taste.
  • Attach the cap securely to the chamber and set it on top of a sturdy mug or vessel.

4. Grind Your Coffee:

  • Weigh out approximately 15-20 grams of coffee beans, depending on your desired strength.
  • Grind the coffee to a medium-fine consistency, similar to table salt.

5. Add Coffee and Water:

  • Place the Aeropress on the scale and add the ground coffee to the chamber.
  • Start your timer and pour hot water over the grounds, saturating them completely. Aim for a 1:15 coffee-to-water ratio.

6. Attach Plunger and Brew:

  • Gently insert the plunger into the Aeropress chamber to create a seal.
  • Slowly press down on the plunger, applying steady pressure until you hear a hissing sound.
