Have you ever tried brewing coffee with AeroPress? We will look at the origin, features, the kind of coffee you can expect from this brewer.
The AeroPress is a manual brewer invented by Alan Adler in 2005, making it one of the latest brewing methods on the market. It is known for its versatility, ease of use, and clean-tasting brew.
In the short time that AeroPress has been around, it attracted a large number of users and earned an extensive fanbase. Baristas around the world have created hundreds of different brewing recipes and compete every year at AeroPress championships. The device is made with extremely durable food-safe rubber out of a brewing chamber, plunger, and a filter cup.
AeroPress stands out from other brewers with its versatility. It can produce a clean and bright cup, fully bodied brew similar to a pour over, but also a concentrated shot similar to an espresso.
Follow this brewing guide for a traditional AeroPress recipe.
Grind 18g of fresh whole bean coffee set to a grind just finer than sea salt.
Place AeroPress filter into the cup and crew it into the bottom tube. Place it on top of your mug. Pour a little bit of hot water into the tube and rinse out. This gets rid of any papery taste and preheats the brewer and your mug.
Boil water to the appropriate temperature (around 200 degrees F).
Put your 18g of freshly ground coffee in the bottom tube through the funnel.
Pour 40-50g of hot water over the coffee grounds making sure all are wet and gently stir with a stick provided. This process helps to develop the flavor and release the gases.
Carefully pour the rest of the water into the tube until you’ve added a total of 200ml. Place the top of the tube on top, without pressing.
Wait for around 1-2 minutes, depending on your taste preferences, until all the coffee is extracted.
Gently press down the top until all the water has filtered through the coffee.
To discard the coffee, unscrew the cap and press the rest of the tube to the bottom over a trash bin.
