Using an Aeropress to Brew Your Coffee
The AeroPress is a coffee brewing system produced by Aerobie. This innovative coffee maker uses a filter and plunger based system to produce strong, flavourful brews with minimal acidity. Although it may seem similar, it differs from the French Press or cafetiere in that the water is not in contact with the coffee for very long. Rather, the coffee grounds are in contact with the water for just ten or fifteen seconds before the water is forced through the grounds under high pressure, just like in an espresso machine.
Using an AeroPress couldn’t be easier. You simply place a filter into the device, add the grounds, place the AeroPress over your mug, and then heat up some water. It is important that the water is between 74 to 80 degrees Celsius, which is a rather different temperature to what you would use for standard filter coffee grounds, and considerably cooler than boiling point for people who live close to sea level. When the water is at the right temperature, pour it into the AeroPress, filling the press up to the markings on the side and stir the water gently for a few seconds.
Finally, slightly wet the rubber seal on the plunger, and place it into the AeroPress. Firmly and slowly press down on the plunger to force the water through the coffee grinds and into your cup or mug. This should take about 20 seconds. Take a look at our full aeropress brewing guide for more detailed instructions. To make the most out of your roast of choice, grab yourself some AeroPress accessories and perfect your skills.
What Is Aeropress Coffee Like?
The AeroPress makes small, espresso-style cups of coffee. These are smooth, rich and highly concentrated (not to mention delicious). If you prefer a more traditional filter drink, then all you have to do is add some hot water to the espresso that is already in the cup. A word of warning; don’t try to put more water than is suggested through the AeroPress itself as this won’t produce the coffee taste you expect, but will leave you with a rather bitter and acidic tasting drink. If you follow our tips above on how to make the most from your choice of roast with your AeroPress then you will not be disappointed.
