Step 1

Assemble your AeroPress with a fresh filter in the cap, on top of your brewing vessel.

Step 2

Rinse the filter with freshly boiled water (this step eliminates any paper residue and also heats the brewing equipment to minimise the heat loss during brewing).

Don’t forget to discard your rinse water!  

Step 3

Add 14g of freshly ground coffee to the AeroPress.

Step 4

Tare the scale, start the timer and pour 224ml of water just off the boil.

After 30 seconds stir five times. 

Step 5

Remove your brewing equipment from the scale and insert the plunger.

Step 6

At 1.5 minutes slowly press down for 30 seconds. Stop immediately when you hear a hissing sound.

Step 7

Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious brew!
