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.
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.
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.
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.
