How to brew an AeroPress
Wanting to discover something new and innovative for your daily cuppa?
- It is a relatively modern invention.
- Involves immersion of coffee within a chamber for brewing, followed by a plunging process that is utilized for extra coffee extraction.
- Produces a rich, and acidic cup of coffee with a lot more body than those produced by other brewing methods.
- Produces espresso-strength coffee.
- Grind the coffee to a medium/fine ground.
Use water of around 90°C
- Place the filter into the plastic cap.
- Rinse your filter and cap with warm water to eliminate the paper taste and get things warmed up and ready to go.
We will set the AeroPress upside down for this method.
- Insert your plunger into the Aeropress until it’s at the top of the number 4 circle inside the brew chamber.
- Add your ground coffee into the chamber
- Add 50ml of your hot water for the pre-infusion process.
- Stir the mixture for 30 seconds, allowing the coffee to extract into the water.
- Give the coffee a gentle three stirs with the AeroPress’s paddle.
Add another 200 ml of water
- Place the filter cap on top and screw it on tightly.
- Leave to brew for one minute.
- Take your cup and place the mouth of it on top of the AeroPress.
- Slowly flip both the AeroPress and the cup over, securing them both tightly to avoid any spillage. (The cup will now be underneath the Aeropress.)
- Gently plunge the coffee down, until all of it has been filtered out of the chamber.
You now have the perfect cup of coffee to enjoy.

Ethiopia is the motherland of coffee and the origin of the Arabica bean. Here, it has been cultivated for at least 11 centuries. The ceremonies around it have ever since been an essential part of the local identity.
