Before your brew: Depending on how strong you want to brew your coffee, we recommend 60g ground coffee per litre of water. So, for a big mug, try 18-20g coffee and 300ml water.
Bring your filtered water to the boil.
While you are waiting, we like to season the plunger with some hot water first. Swirl it around, then empty the water out in preparation for your ground coffee
Freshly ground coffee is best, but if you do not have a grinder, pre-ground coffee is fine. Add the dry ground coffee to the plunger. This should be quite coarse and should almost feel like granulated sugar.
Measure out your required water. Pour the water over the ground coffee, ensuring all the grinds are saturated, then give the coffee a vigorous stir. Start your timer. Let it brew for 90 seconds, and then give it another good stir. Now let it brew for 3 more minutes. Total brewing time should be no longer than 5 minutes.
With firm and steady force and slowly push the plunger down until you can no longer push. Now the only thing left to do is to sit back, pour, drink and enjoy!
We love brewing in this humble, compact little contraption. The Aeropress is simple to use, easy to clean, and brews a straight up delicious coffee time and time again.
