Best coffee 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 and when you come to use them with your Aeropress you will be sure to extract those special flavours

If you buy 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. It will become bitter before you know it.

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

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

 

Why is Indian Mysore Plantation Coffee Best for Aeropress?

The Indian Mysore bean is packed full of spicy and nutty flavours. It also has a medium acidity. There are a few traces of herb and flowery tones that can be felt in the nose as you drink the coffee.

The beans are a medium roast to provide an intense aroma, however, it is light enough to allow the more delicate flavours to be present.

Up in the El Trifinio mountains is where the rich soils of Guatemala are perfect at providing a sweet, cinder toffee finish. The high altitude gives it a succulent acidity.

This is a really pleasant coffee to drink, well balanced and great in the Aeropress. A perfect medium roasted bean that gives strength as well as subtlety.

  1. 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).

  2. 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.
