HOW TO MAKE COFFEE WITH THE AEROPRESS

The world of coffee accessories is wide and keeps flourishing. But when discussing alternate brewing methods, the Aeropress is one of the few that makes coffee connoisseurs gather around. Popular amongst coffee enthusiasts around the world, it is a revolutionary way of making a perfect and unique coffee with the texture and simplicity of a traditional drip. If you are curious and want to experiment a new brewing method, this blog is for you. 

WHAT IS THE AEROPRESS?

 

The Aeropress is one of the quickest ways to brew coffee at home, manually. It consists of pressing coffee through a chamber placed directly on top of a cup.
Made of three essential parts, namely a chamber, a plunger, and a filter cap, it uses gentle air pressure to create a smooth and rich flavored coffee while removing its acidity or bitterness. The extraction is indeed consistent and clean. 

Although similar to the French press, as they both use total immersion brew, the Aeropress has another element that produces a crisper, brighter, and cleaner coffee: a paper filter.  
Besides,  you create pressure when you place the plunger into the main body of the AeroPress and press down, whereas the French Press does not. Indeed, this forces the water through the coffee grounds in a similar way to an espresso machine. In the end, it results in a coffee that is quite similar to an espresso made with an engine when really, your hands have made it. Fantastic, isn't it?

 

HOW TO USE IT?

The Standard method is the easiest and preferred method, especially for those new to the Aeropress. 

  1. Put the paper filter in the filter holder and twist it before placing it back into the chamber.
  2. Place the chamber on a mug.
  3.  Add finely-ground coffee (usually one rounded scoop) to the brewing chamber.
  4. Shake to even the coffee surface
  5. Boil and add just enough water to wet the grounds. Wait for approximately 30 seconds, then fill the AeroPress up to Level 1 (this will make a medium-sized cup of coffee). 
  6. Stir about 10 seconds for hot brewing, 30 for cold
  7. Insert plunger and press down gently 
  8. Enjoy your coffee!

 

 The inverted method requires a bit more technic. It ensures a full immersion of coffee into water and results in making a more consistent cup.

  1. Insert the piston into the brewing chamber. Turn the Aeropress upside down.
  2.  Add a filter paper to the filter holder and wet it, so it sticks upside down.
  3.  Add finely-ground coffee (usually one rounded scoop) to the brewing chamber.
  4. Boil and add just enough water to wet the grounds. Wait for approximately 30 seconds, then fill the AeroPress up to Level 1 (again, this will make a medium-sized cup of coffee). 
  5. Stir about 10 seconds for hot brewing, 30 for cold
  6. Screw the filter holder onto the brewer. Place a cup upside down on top and very carefully turn everything back the right way up. Push down slowly. 
  7. Enjoy your coffee!

  

Whatever the method used, the Aeropress is unbelievably easy to keep clean. Simply remove the filter cap and the plunger to eject used coffee. Rinse thoroughly. Voilà. 

 

NB. The Aeropress is suitable for placing on the dishwasher's top shelf, but we highly recommend washing it by hand.
