Our Guidelines 

Traditional Method

  • Weigh 16 gr of coffee on the scale and grind it just before you start brewing
  • Place the filter paper into the plastic holder
  • Start heating your water to the desired temperature (use filtered water as tap water will give the brew a harsh taste) 
  • Place your server on the scale and on top place the AeroPress with the filter down
  • Rinse with hot water the filter paper and preheat the AeroPress
  • Add your fresh grinded coffee – 16 g
  • Start your time on the scale
  • Pour gently on top 56 ml of water for the bloom stage which will take 30 sec
  • After 30 sec add 70 ml of water and wait 10 sec
  • After 10 sec add 125 ml of water, this will bring you up to 250 ml of water, our desired quantity 
  • Place the piston immediately in its place creating a vacuum that will hold the coffee from dripping
  • When the timer hits 1:30 min take the server and brewer off the scale and start pushing the piston down, gently, up until you hit 2:00 min
  • Remove the brewer from the server, remove spent coffee, clean with hot water, no soap, and place the brewer to dry
  • Enjoy a fresh brew each day

Inverted Method

  • Weigh 16 gr of coffee on the scale and grind it just before you start brewing
  • Preheat the AeroPress with hot water
  • Place the filter paper into the plastic holder
  • Start heating your water to the desired temperature (use filtered water as tap water will give the brew a harsh taste) 
  • Place the piston in the brewer, turn upside down and place it on the scale
  • Rinse the filter paper from the plastic holder with hot water
  • Place the fresh ground coffee – 16g – in the brewer
  • Start your time on the scale
  • Add 56 ml of water and wait 30 sec for the bloom stage
  • After 30 sec add the remaining 200 ml of water
  • Place the filter holder on top and secure it
  • Let the coffee steep up to 2:00 min
  • Place the server on top and with a smooth reverse action and invert the AeroPress onto the server
  • Gently start plunging the piston down until all of the water passes through the coffee, this should be up to 2:30 min
  • Remove the brewer from the server, remove spent coffee, clean with hot water, no soap, and place the brewer to dry
  • Enjoy a fresh brew each day

Small tip:

If you want a “cleaner” cup, lighter in body, we recommend using 2 filter papers instead of only one.
