- Measure and grind 16g of coffee or use your Aeropress Spoon, if you have lost that bastard, a couple of tablespoons will do. The coffee should have the consistency of Table Salt.
- Place the filter in the basket and give it a good drench, while your at it give the whole AeroPress a drench with the hot water. This gets rid of any paper flavor and warms everything up.
- Screw the basket to the bottom of the AeroPress and place it on top your mug. Add the 16g of coffee to the chamber (if you struggle with simple tasks, you can use the AeroPress Funnel)
- Now start to fill that bad boy up with hot water (usually around high 90’s). Saturate all the grounds within 10 seconds. Pour to the No. 4 or 220g of water if you’re using a scale.
- Once you hit the No. 4, stir the “slurry” (coffee and water mixture) and place the plunger on the brew chamber and pull up slightly to create a pressure seal. Don’t plunge yet!
- At 1:15, remove the pressure seal and give the slurry another stir with a spoon or paddle. Put the plunger back on and gently press down with steady pressure, stopping as soon as you hear a hissing sound. This entire brew process should take just under two minutes and yield seven to eight ounces of coffee.
- The AeroPress is easy to clean. Simply take off the basket and pop out the coffee grounds and filter. Clean the rubber plunger with hot kettle water and you’re ready for your nextbrew.
