AEROPRESS

The Aeropress method is another inexpensive, but portable, method that steeps water and coffee together, then uses a piston to press water through the coffee grounds through a paper filter. Some describe it as the middle ground between a filter coffee maker and an espresso machine.

The Traditional Aeropress Method

Supplies: 

  • Aeropress
  • Water (As a general suggestion, we would recommend
    75g/L i.e ~6 heaping teaspoons per standard cup ) 
  • Any of our Velo coffees!
Remember that the water to coffee ratio can be adjusted according to your taste

Building your Coffee:

  1. Boil fresh water.
  2. Place a filter paper into the filter holder, twist and lock. Run some hot water through to heat the brewer and rinse the paper. Discard that water.
  3. Grind 20g of coffee to a medium-coarse grind (we offer a free grinding service with all coffee purchased!)
  4. Place the brewer on the top of the mug, add coffee in using the funnel and scoop.
  5. Add hot water (ideally 94℃), give it a quick stir.
  6. Put the piston in place, make sure it’s sealed. Pull it back up slightly, this creates a vacuum inside the Aeropress and prevent liquid from dripping before the coffee is brewed.
  7. Let the coffee sit for 1 minute.
  8. Steadily plunge the liquid out (brewing should take 2-3 min).
  9. Enjoy!

The Final Product:

That's a fine looking cup of coffee!
