My favorite Aeropress method

I use an Aeropress as one solution to fulfill my caffeine addiction. Here’s my preferred brewing method:

  • Grind 12g of coffee beans
  • Heat water to ~80 degrees
  • Put the Aeropress in the inverted position
  • Put in the ground coffee
  • Pour 50g water
  • Stir it a couple of times (~5)
  • Wait 30 seconds – this should give you enough time to water the filter
  • Pour 150g water
  • Wait 30 seconds without stirring or moving – this should give you enough time screw the filter on
  • Press the Aeropress still in the inverted position slightly, until you can see bubbles seeping through the filter
  • Flip and put the device over your mug – it should be in normal position
  • Wait 2 and a half minutes
  • Use the forearm technique to apply pressure

Depending on the beans, of course, but this should give you a nice, smooth taste with a strong enough kick.
