Invented in 2005 by Alan Alder who also invented the Aerobie frisbee, the aeropress is a fun and versatile way to make your morning brew. It’s inexpensive and easy to use.
What you'll need
- Aeropress filter
- 15g or 3 level teaspoons of Fresh ‘Bean to Door’ Coffee
- Kitchen Scales (optional)
- A grinder (optional)
Put water on to boil. While you’re waiting, measure and grind your coffee (coarse setting on grinder). Place the plunger into the Aeropress just above the “4” mark. Place it upside down on the counter.
Place a paper filter into the filter holder and rinse under the tap. Set this aside.
Pour the ground coffee into the upside down Aeropress, pour the water over the coffee, making sure to wet all the grinds. Stir the coffee.
Once the timer reaches 2 minutes, put the cap on and carefully turn the Aeropress over onto a cup.
Slowly press the plunger down. This should take about 20 seconds. Enjoy!
