The Aeropress works in a similar way to a French Press. Made of food-safe plastic the Aeropress acts as a big syringe. Water and coffee to go into the lower chamber. A paper filter is placed in the cap. Then after 30-45 seconds of brewing time, the plunger is pushed down and this forces the water through the coffee and the paper filter resulting in a very smooth, full flavoured brew.
We found the best way to prepare coffee in the AeroPress as follows:
Add 1 scoop or 14g of freshly ground coffee. You need it ground finer than French Press but courser than Espresso a drip grind would be perfect.
Boil fresh water and wait 60 seconds before putting water onto coffee 85C is ideal.
Add water to about 15mm below the rim
Stir for 10 seconds
Add a touch more hot water to top up then plunge the Aeropress slowly! You can then add some more hot water if you wish, place in a travel mug and off you go!!
