This will be an inverted method so get your Aeropress ready and rinse out 2 paper filters. If you have a metal one there’s no need to rinse. I, myself, never preheat the Aeropress chamber especially since in this recipe we’ll be using water fresh off the boil.
- Add the coffee grounds and give your Aeropress a little tap to make sure everything is even before anything else. Make sure both timer and scale are on zero before you begin.
- Now start your timer and add the freshly boiled water in one go until you reach 240ml. Take the Aeropress paddle and carefully stir the coffee 10 times before letting it rest for a minute.
- Make sure you move fast though – this shouldn’t take you more than 20 seconds.
- After that, secure the cap on the chamber, take the Aeropress off the scale and gently press down to release any excess air you might have inside. When that’s done you will see some liquid on top so it’s time for you to stop and carefully flip it on top of your vessel of choice. Now you’re ready to gently start pressing.
- The whole process should take you around 2’ from start to finish.
- Once you’re done, allow your coffee to cool down a bit while you empty and rinse the Aeropress with cold water.
What makes this recipe so special?
If you ask me, this has got to be one of the easiest ways of making coffee in the morning. Especially if you’re always short on time and need a little help waking up.
With that said, there are some things you should probably take into account in order to ensure you get the tastiest result possible.
*If you want to minimise waste, invest in one of the many metal filters out there – I’d recommend any of Cafe Concetto’s superfine ones.
*Water quality is probably just as important as the coffee you use, so if you don’t already have a good filtration jug at home already, check out Peak/ Bwt/ Britta – or for a short term solution use bottled instead of plain tap water.
*Make sure to never use warm water for rinsing as this will damage the rubber on the plunger with time.
*If you choose to stick to paper filters instead of metal, that’s fine; you can peel them off the freshly brewed grounds at the end and carefully rinse them before letting them dry off on a paper towel. This way you can use the same ones up to 4 times thus minimising your waste.
* I suggest you play around with this recipe and test different times for different strengths.
For example: if you need an extra caffeine kick in the morning you can leave it immersed for around 2 and a half minutes before starting to press, or, on the contrary, feel free to add some extra water at the end and dilute it if you could do with more volume and less intensity.
There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s all a matter of taste.
So have fun and enjoy your coffee!
