Frequently asked questions
What is the best grind size for AeroPress?
A semi fine grind, like a drip filter, works best. Why? This grind will create a greater surface area for the water to infuse and will result in a richer brew from your Aeropress. Espresso grind will quickly over extract and it may be difficult to press the aeropress. Choose Rave Filter grind.
What are the differences between inverted and normal Aeropress?
There are subtle differences between the normal Aeropress and inverted but there is definitely one. With the standard method, water drips through the filter immediately after it has been poured over the ground coffee. With the inverted method, the coffee stays in the water for longer which means more flavour will be extracted for a richer brew.
Is Aeropress coffee like espresso?
Espresso is ground coffee that has a layer of crema, which is a result of the pressure brewing process. The Aeropress method may not produce crema, as it is pressurised, but it is a long way off the 9 bar that would be considered espresso, not to mention the volumes are also different.
The Aerobie Aeropress was invented by the same man who invented the Frisbee!
How do I use an AeroPress?
To use an AeroPress, place ground coffee in the chamber and pour in hot water. After stirring the liquid, press the plunger to force the brewed coffee into a cup or carafe.
What grind should I use with an AeroPress?
AeroPress grounds should be slightly finer than French press grounds, but not as fine as espresso grounds. In general, a medium-fine grind is ideal when using the AeroPress.
