Aeropress Brew Guide

Check out the last video in our Brew Guide Series.

Starring Rumble's own Stan Bicknell, this is the step-by-step process of how to get the best out of your coffee with the Aeropress.

Ingredients/Gear

  • Aeropress
  • Scales and timer
  • Funnel and stirrer
  • Filter
  • Freshly ground coffee
  • Timer
  • Vessel (like a Rumble mug)
  • Hot filtered water

 

Instructions

  • Setup: Grab the cap off the aeropress and place the filter inside.
  • Pull the aeropress apart, screw the cap back in and place on top of your cup.
  • Pour hot water into the press to rinse the filter and preheat the vessel.
  • Put the top of your aeropress in and push down to remove all the water (you can leave the water in the cup to keep it warm).
  • Take the cap of the aeropress off and pull the press back untill it is 1 cm from the top
  • Place your funnel in the top of the press.

 

  • Grind: Pour fresh, medium to fine ground (think caster sugar) coffee in the funnel. (Use 7.5g of coffee per 100ml of water so 15g to 200ml water).
  • Tare the scales.

 

  • Brew: Add 95 °C water (a good way to do this is to let a freshly boiled kettle sit for 45 secs and then pour).
  • Start your timer and pour in 200ml of water.
  • Use your stirrer to gently stir the brew and insure all the coffee is saturated.
  • Push the press down slightly to remove any air and place the cap back on.
  • Empty the water from your cup and allow the coffee to brew for 45 seconds.
  • Invert the press by flipping it over and placing it on top of your cup. (Be careful)
  • Swirl the press gently to ensure the coffee is all saturated.

 

  • Pour: After a total brew time of 2 minutes push down, stopping just before the bottom, now your coffee is ready to enjoy!
