How to make the perfect Aeropress Coffee

you're going to need:
- AeroPress kit
- Rave coffee
- Scales with a timer (ideally)
- Kettle

1. Boil the kettle and leave to stand for 30 seconds (lid open).

2. Assemble the Aeropress, placing the seal just below the four. Then place the paper filter into your filter cap and rinse to remove the papery taste. Place your AeroPress onto your scales and set them to zero.

3. Pour in 200g water and leave to stand for 60 seconds.

4. Screw on the filter cap and flip the Aeropress onto the cup.

5. Slowly press the plunger for 30-40 seconds until you hear a hiss.

Frequently asked questions

What is the Aeropress?

It's a brewing device for making filter coffee where coffee is steeped in a tube and then forced through a paper filter with a plunger.

What's the best coffee for Aeropress?

Try our Signature Blend or Colombia El Carmen.

What is the best grind size for AeroPress?

A semi fine grind, like 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 is 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 which has a layer of crema which is a result of the pressure brewing process. The Aeropress method will not produce this crema as it is not a pressurised but merely pushed through a paper filter.

Fun fact

The Aerobie Aeropress was invented by the same man who invented the Frisbee!
