For this brew guide, we’ll be making one cup of coffee. The aeropress is powerful, but its small size is more suited for personal, individual use.
We’ll be using a 1:15 coffee to water ratio, with about 16 grams of coffee, roughly two tablespoons, and 220 grams of water. Make sure to grind your coffee to the consistency of sea salt. We’re going for a medium grind.
First, add a filter to the detachable cap of your aeropress. Wet the filter and set it aside.
Next, place the plunger at the end of the aeropress chamber. Then, flip the aeropress and place it on your scale with the plunger touching the scale and the chamber facing up towards you.
Alright, we’re ready for the first pour.
Place your ground coffee in the chamber and start your timer. This will be a quick process, and will only take about 90 seconds.
Pour 36 grams of water to wet the coffee and allow it to bloom. Ensure that all your grounds are wet. Then, stir the grounds slowly within the aeropress chamber.
Wait 30 seconds.
Fill the rest of the chamber with water. Be careful to pour slowly in a gentle spiral motion until the chamber is full. Your scale should read roughly 240 grams.
Grab the detachable cap and filter that you set aside during your set up. Fasten the cap to the chamber and ensure that it’s locked on tightly.
Quickly flip the aeropress as if you were flipping an hourglass, and ensure you land with the aeropress cap on your mug.
Press the plunger down carefully. If it’s hard to press the french press, you probably ground your coffee too fine. You should expect some resistance, but not have to muscle it.
Once you plunge the coffee, you can enjoy it immediately.
