In this comprehensive brewing guide on how to make Aeropress coffee, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of making Aeropress coffee, allowing you to enjoy a rich and flavourful cup of coffee with ease.

What You’ll Need:

  • Aeropress brewer
  • Aeropress filter
  • CoffeeHype coffee beans
  • Coffee grinder
  • Kettle or hot water source
  • Stirring utensil
  • Timer
  • Coffee mug

Step 1: Prepare Your Equipment

To make Aeropress coffee, start by assembling your Aeropress. Place a filter inside the filter cap and screw it onto the brew chamber. Set the Aeropress on top of your coffee mug and preheat everything with hot water. This helps maintain the temperature during the brewing process.

Step 2: Grind Your Coffee Beans

Measure out the desired amount of coffee beans based on your preferred coffee-to-water ratio. For a good starting point, use a ratio of 1:15 (1 gram of coffee to 15 grams of water). Grind your coffee beans to a medium-fine consistency, similar to table salt.

Step 3: Add Coffee and Water

Now, it’s time to add the coffee and water to the Aeropress. Dump the ground coffee into the brew chamber. Start your timer and pour hot water (about 95°C or 200°F) slowly and steadily into the brew chamber. Add twice the weight of water compared to the weight of coffee used (e.g., for 15 grams of coffee, use 225 grams of water). Ensure all the coffee grounds are fully saturated.

Step 4: Stir and Steep

To ensure even extraction and release of flavour compounds, use a stirring utensil to gently stir the coffee and water mixture for about 10-15 seconds. This step is essential in making Aeropress coffee.

Step 5: Brew and Press

After stirring, insert the plunger into the brew chamber, creating a seal. Allow the coffee to steep for about 1 minute. This duration can be adjusted based on your personal preference and the coffee’s characteristics. Once the steeping time is complete, start pressing down slowly on the plunger with steady pressure. Aim to finish the press within 30 seconds.

Step 6: Clean and Enjoy

Remove the Aeropress from the mug and unscrew the filter cap. Push the plunger to eject the coffee puck and remaining grounds into a compost or trash bin. Rinse the Aeropress with hot water and clean the components thoroughly.
