The AeroPress comes bundled with everything that you need (apart from the coffee and a grinder) to get started:
• 350 filters
• Filter holder
• Coffee funnel (We also use it as a stand)
You might be surprised to learn that the AeroPress was invented by Alan Adler, the inventor of the Aerobie Disk. The AeroPress has only been around since 2005 but its indestructible build and countless brewing variations have made it the favorite among many coffee professionals. The fact that there’s a World AeroPress Championship shows the versatility and quality of these little brewers.
So how do you use it? Simple. Firstly, open the box, remove the instructions and throw them away. Then...
• Put your freshly ground and weighed out coffee into the inverted (with the filter end pointing upwards) AeroPress. As a guide, start with 15-16g for 250ml of water and adjust to taste.
• Put the filter into the filter holder and wash though with hot water to get rid of any nasty paper taste
• Pour just off the boil water over the coffee, filling the AeroPress nearly to the top
• Stir a prescribed amount of times (we use three) and top off with water
• Attach the filter holder and secure (before the end of the brew time)
• Leave to brew for your preferred brew strength (our preference is about a minute from when the water makes contact)
• Turn over onto the top of your favourite sturdy mug and push down the plunge until the AeroPress is empty, and you hear a slight hissing sound
