Making coffee in an Aeropress is the most mobile of the filter brewing methods using a manual coffee maker. That is why it is now so easy to enjoy coffee at home!
The preparation process is very easy, because it takes no more than a few minutes, and it is also interesting - due to a special device designed by the American engineer Alan Adler, consisting of a piston and a flask into which a filter is inserted. This brewing technique will definitely attract the attention of your friends and loved ones.
How does it work?
The principle of the syringe - water is pushed through the coffee by a piston. The full volume of the coffee maker contains 240 milliliters.
Thanks to the presence of a paper filter in the device, the coffee is clean and light, with a rich and dense taste.
So, the mechanics of the Aeropress:
- connect two cylinders
- pour coffee into one of them
- fill it with water
- close with a rubber filter holder
- turn the device over
- squeeze the coffee through a paper filter under pressure
⠀This method guarantees full disclosure of the taste and aroma of the grain.
How about a champion recipe for an alternative brewing method in the Aeropress?
The brewing option is upside down.
We will need 35g of coffee and a kitchen scale with a stopwatch.
From 0:00 to 0:15 min, pour 150 g of water heated to a temperature of 84°C.
From 0:15 to 0:35 min, we carefully stir the coffee with a spatula.
At 0:35, close the aeropress filter with a holder with a pre-soaked filter.
At 1:05 we turn the Aeropress over and start pressing it.
At 1:35 we finish pressing. At the output, we get 90 ml of concentrate.
Add 160-200 ml of hot water to the finished concentrate.
Enjoy your coffee!
Life hack: the aeropress is very easy to clean - remove the black cover, press the piston all the way and throw away the "coffee pack".
