You might be surprised to learn that AeroPress was invented by Alan Adler, the inventor of the Aerobie Disk. AeroPress Coffee Maker 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
Weigh and grind 14 grams of freshly roasted coffee on a medium-fine setting. Assemble your Aeropress in the inverted style and fill it partially with hot water to preheat.
Place a filter in the cap and rinse with hot water.
Dump your preheat water and reposition the Aeropress.
Pour your freshly ground coffee into the Aeropress, and shake gently to settle.
Place Aeropress on scale and tare to 0g.
Start your timer and quickly pour 50 grams of water over the coffee bed.
Immediately stir the coffee briefly to ensure complete saturation.
At the 30 second mark, pour the rest of the water in gently (but quickly) to bring the water weight up to 210 grams.
Immediately secure the filter and cap.
At 90 seconds flip the Aeropress along with your vessel onto a flat surface and steadily plunge the coffee through. This should take about 15 seconds.
Pour coffee into mugs or a thermal container and enjoy.
