Aeropress Brew Guide and Video
Boil water in your kettle or in a pan and let it cool slightly for a minute or two.
Place an Aeropress filter in the filter cap and attach the cap to the bottom of the Aeropress.
Measure approximately 2 scoops of freshly ground coffee, or about 8g of ground coffee per 100g of water.
Pour the ground coffee into the Aeropress mixing chamber. Place it directly over your mug or cup.
Fill about half the chamber with hot, but not boiling, water. Use the stirrer and stir gently for about 20 seconds.
Top up with more water and give it another quick stir.
Use the plunger and press down firmly for about 20 seconds, until it reaches the bottom and you hear a hissing sounds.
Serve the coffee black, with milk or top up the cup with a bit more hot water if you prefer it less strong.
