BREWING GUIDE: AEROPRESS RECIPE
Want to make a rich coffee cup anywhere you go?
The Aeropress is a very versatile coffee maker, it's easy, fast and makes a delicious cup. This is how we prefer to prepare it.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
And of course, nice coffee beans!
Bring water to boil to 89°C. Weigh out 17 grams of whole bean coffee. Grind to a texture slightly finer than sea salt.
Insert the paper filter in the Aeropress's plastic cap and rinse it with the hot water to get rid of the papery taste.
Assemble your Aeropress and place it on your scale and tare the weight. The numbers should appear upside-down. Add your ground coffee.
Start your timer and quickly pour the hot water into the Aeropress until it reaches 220 grams. We use a water to coffee ratio of 13:1, for every 1 gram of coffee, use 13 grams of water. But of course, don't hesitate to play with the ratio's and adapt according to your personal preference.
Wait 40 sec and then stir the coffee gently a couple of times. Then fasten the plastic cap, ensuring it locks tightly.
After 1:45 minutes, flip the Aeropress in one smooth movement atop your cup. The numbers are now readible. Start slowly pushing down for 20 seconds, until you hear a hissing sound. This means there is no more water to push trough the aeropress.
Unscrew the cap and pop out the filter and puck by pushing the aeropress until the end.
Pour your coffee in a cup and enjoy!
