You might be surprised to learn that the AeroPress was invented by Alan Adler, the inventor of the Aerobie Disk. The AeroPress has only been around since 2005 but its indestructible build and countless brewing variations have made it the favorite among many coffee professionals. The fact that there’s a World AeroPress Championship shows the versatility and quality of these little brewers.

Before You Brew
Fresh Coffee The single most important part of a good cup is starting with high quality, freshly roasted coffee. We aim to drink our coffee within a 14 day window of being roasted.
Purified Water Start with filtered water for best results. If your tap water already has a lot of dissolved solids then it will negatively impact your ability to brew the coffee.
Scale Consider purchasing a scale for your brewing. You'll find it will really boost the consistency and quality in your morning cup of coffee.
What You Need
Stir spoon or Aeropress paddle
Invert your Aeropress and fill it with hot water to preheat.
Place a paper filter in the cap of the Aeropress.
Place over vessel and rinse with hot water.
Drain the water that is preheating your brewing device.
Using the Aeropress funnel, carefully drop your coffee into the bottom of the inverted brewer.
Place your Aeropress on your scale and tare to 0g.
Start your timer and quickly pour 50 grams of water over the coffee bed.
Immediately stir in all the dry coffee grounds to ensure complete saturation (Pour and Stir time should not take longer then 30 seconds combined).
At the 30 second mark, pour the rest of the water in gently (but quickly) to bring the water weight up to 225 grams.
Place the lid on to help avoid heat loss.
At 90 seconds flip the Aeropress onto your mug and steadily press all of the coffee out in an even 15 seconds.
Pour coffee into mugs or a thermal container and enjoy.
