Aeropress Instructions

  1. Grind to a texture slightly finer than sea salt.
  2. Assemble AeroPress and set on counter flared end up.
  3. Insert paper filter into detachable plastic cap and wet filter with heated water.
  4. Pour ground coffee into AeroPress.
  5. Add enough heated water (at least 93°C) to saturate grounds and let it sit for 30 seconds.
  6. Use remainder of hot water to fill chamber.
  7. After a minute has elapsed, stir grounds 10 times to agitate.
  8. Fasten cap, ensuring it locks tightly into grooves.
  9. Flip whole assembly over with haste and control. Position atop your brew vessel.
  10. 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.
