AEROPRESS
Brewing coffee with air pressure
Background
A space-age contraption with gravity-defying aspirations, the AeroPress was invented by Aerobie. Responsible for creating the long-flying “superdisc” that broke Guiness World Records when it soared 1,333 feet into the air. The same mastery of aerodynamics comes into play here, with this peculiar and practical method for brewing up a delicious coffee.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
  • AeroPress
  • AeroPress filters
  • AeroPress funnel
  • Kettle
  • Grinder
  • Scales
  • Timer
  • Stirring tool
  • Your favourite cup
  • Some fresh coffee
Step One
Stick the kettle on and bring to boil 215 grams of water. Weigh out around 12-14 grams of coffee (depending on your preferred strength). Grind this up to the same consistency slightly finer than sea salt.
Brew Time
1 minute and 30 seconds
Step Two
Insert the paper filter into detachable AeroPress plastic cap.
Step Three
Use some of your hot water to wet your filter and cap. The water serves a dual function here: It helps the filter adhere to the cap, and heats your brewing vessel. This can be challenging as the water is hot and the cap is quite small: Hold the cap by its “ears” and pour the water very slowly so it can be absorbed by the filter.
Step Four
Assemble your AeroPress. Make sure the entire assembly is dry, since any residual moisture can compromise the device’s seal.
Step Five
Place it on your scale with the flared end up, then tare the weight. The numbers should appear upside-down. It’s possible to attach the black filter cap and place it right side-up, but this tends to cause leakage and make accurate brewing difficult.
Step Six
Add your ground coffee. Be careful not to spill any grounds into the ring-shaped gutter at the top of the AeroPress.
Step Seven
Start a timer. Add twice the weight of water than you have grounds (e.g., for 15 grams coffee, add 30 grams water). The water should be about 92 degrees celsius.
Step Eight
Make sure the coffee is saturated evenly, tamping slightly with the paddle or butter knife if necessary, and let it sit for 30 seconds.
Step Nine
Use the remainder of the hot water to fill the chamber.
Step Ten
After a minute has elapsed, stir grounds 10 times to agitate.
Step Eleven
Fasten the cap, ensuring it locks into the grooves tightly. Flip the whole assembly over with haste and control. Position it atop your brew vessel and begin applying downward pressure. You will experience about 30 pounds of resistance here. If the pushing feels too easy, your grind is likely too coarse; if it’s very hard to push, chances are the grind is too fine. Your coffee is fully brewed once it begins to make a hissing sound. This means there is no more water to push through the device.
Step Twelve
Once you’ve unscrewed the cap, you can pop out the filter and the puck of condensed grounds by simply pushing AeroPress’s interior section a final inch.
Pour your coffee and enjoy it!
