brew guide: Aeropress
This recipe is utilizing the inverted method of preparing an Aeropress, which is known as a hybrid brew method, a combination of both full immersion and percolation. Here’s what you’ll need:
-225g of water (15:1 ratio)
-15g of freshly ground coffee (fine
Put ground coffee at the bottom of the Aeropress, this being the bottom of the plunger. To do this, you’ll need the plastic filter cap and the paper filter off the Aeropress.
Pour hot water over the plastic filter cap and the paper filter, pre-wetting and heating the filters.
At 30 seconds, begin your next pour, completely pouring the remaining amount of water, which should be 200g. This should take anywhere from 25-35 seconds.
Once you’ve finished this pour, use your stirrer to agitate the slurry for about ten rotations to ensure all grounds are properly saturated.
Let brew until 1:45. At this point reattach the filter cap with the paper filter in it to the top of the Aeropress.
Take hold of the brewer making sure to have a good grip on one side of both parts, and turn the brewer 180 degrees, placing it on a decanter or cup of your choosing to plunge the liquid coffee into.
At 2:00, begin depressing the plunger, pushing the liquid through the filter. This process should take about 20 seconds.
Enjoy, clean up later!
