Step 1

Place an Aeropress filter paper into the screw cap, screw it onto the Aeropress.

Carefully pour freshly boiled water through the filter paper; this will get rid of the slight paper taste.

Step 2

Grind the coffee to a medium grind size - you’re looking for it to have the consistency of table salt

Place your Aeropress and mug onto the scales and add the ground coffee. Tare the scales.

Step 3

Your water should have cooled by now to the ideal temperature for brewing (91-94°C).

Start your timer.

Pour 250g of water onto the coffee grounds.

Using the stirrer, quickly agitate the coffee in a ‘North-South-East-West’ motion to ensure proper extraction.

Step 4

Immediately insert the rubber press into the top of the brewing chamber; this creates a vacuum which stops the coffee passing through the filter paper.

At 1min 15sec, slowly press until all brewed coffee has passed through the filter; this should take 30sec.

Step 5

Enjoy.
