  • 200 grams (7 ounces) filtered water
  • Digital Scale
  • Tiny mug

  • Place the circular paper filter into the filter holder, rinse with hot water, and set aside
  • Grind your coffee beans to a medium setting, similar to how you would grind them for a pour-over coffee. Then, using the funnel provided with the Aeropress, carefully pour the grounds into the brewing chamber.

How Does this Differ from the Instructions Provided with my Aeropress?

In each trial, we have consistently obtained delicious coffee with this recipe. We have achieved a more uniform extraction by slightly coarser grinding, increasing the brewing time, and inverting the device during the process. The Aeropress offers many different brewing methods, so if your coffee does not taste just right, you can make small changes one at a time, such as adjusting the grind size, ratio, or water temperature, until you find the perfect cup for your taste.
