The C4 Guide To Aeropress


Aeropress is a unique but wonderful contraption. It's sort of a French Press (Plunger), but also sort of a take on an espresso machine in that you have to push the water through the coffee via a paper filter. 

They are light, durable, and make a great cup when used correctly so are very popular with coffee professionals and seasoned travellers alike. 
Team it with a Porlex mini hand grinder (which conveniently fits inside the Aeropress) and you'll have fresh coffee wherever you go.
Here's a simple breakdown of how to use one to extract a commendable cup with this captivating creation! We recommend the inverted method and explain this approach below, but your instructions will refer to a traditional method - experiment away of course.
16 grams of medium grind coffee (between plunger and espresso)
200ml of water boiled but then left to cool slightly (technically approx. 97 degrees)
1. Place Aeropress paper filter into the basket and flush with water to rinse the paper so it does not taint the flavour of your brew.
2. Attach the plunger/ piston into the brewer and stretch to full length. Invert the Aeropress and ideally place on scales.
3. Add 16 grams of ground coffee to Aeropress.
4. Pour approximately 80ml of water on coffee. Ensure you saturate all the grinds and stir three times.
5. Allow to sit for 30 seconds before adding the rest of the water. This lets the coffee "bloom".
6. Once all water is added carefully attach the filter basket. Let the coffee steep for another 60 seconds (1:30 so far).
7. Turn Aeropress right side up over a cup or server.
8. Slowly push plunger down, pushing the water through the filter. We recommend you leave some liquid in the Aeropress which results in a cleaner flavour. This should take approximately 30 seconds 
Total brew time: 2:00
Serves 1.
