Best Coffee Beans for Aeropress Brewing Method


At Adams + Russell, we love to find out the best way to drink our coffees after roasting.

And what’s more, when we find a coffee that goes great with an Aeropress coffee maker – we need to let people know.

If you’d like to see which are the best coffee beans for your preferred taste, then have a read of this article, which gives you advice on Which coffee you should buy.

We would recommend a medium grind for Aeropress

Which Grind is best for an Aeropress brewing method?

If you have a grinder, make sure you buy coffee beans – that way they will stay fresh for longer. When you come to use them with your Aeropress, you will be sure to extract those special flavours.

Only buy small bags if you’re purchasing ground coffee. the ground coffee then only buy the small bags. If you open a 1kg bag of coffee, it could take you a while to drink, and it may become bitter before you know it.

In terms of deciding which is the best grind size for the Aeropres, we would recommend a medium grind. That way you will be sure that the extraction process has enough time to “hit the sweet spot” of the bean.

So it’s fairly simple and shouldn’t take you long to decide.

    Great post – the Indian Mysore Plantation beans sound like a winner in an aeropress. You mentioned it’s difficult to keep these beans fresh however, and there’s a great tip for that. Keeping the beans in the freezer keeps them fresher for longer regardless of what container they are kept in (though airtight will produce the best results).

    I recently bought an Aeropress and the mini Hario grinder to bring on my extended holiday (3-month trip). But maybe I should have also brought along some coffee beans. Great tip by Tabitha re- freezing the beans.
