brew guide: aeropress



An AeroPress is when water and ground coffee are mixed together for around 30 seconds before being pushed through a micro filter. As the coffee is completely immersed in water the flavour is extracted quickly from it making the AeroPress a quick and effective brewing method.

What you need...

  1. AeroPress brewer
  2. AeroPress filters
  3. Coffee (fine grind)
  4. Stopwatch

Brewing Method...

  • Assemble the AeroPress with the brewing chamber facing upwards
  • Place the filter inside the cap and rinse with water to get rid of the papery taste
  • Add coffee – you will need approximately 17g for a single serving
  • Add water – use water at 80 degrees (use a thermometer for best results) Steep for 10 seconds, then stir for 10 seconds
  • Screw on the filter
  • Pour – place the AeroPress over a cup and squeeze down the plunger for around 20-25 seconds. Stop as soon as you hear a hissing sound (air escaping)
