Our Brew Guide Aeropress

The AeroPress is a one-cup brewer that is simple, portable and lightweight. It is a straightforward and convenient way to make freshly brewed coffee whether at home, work or travelling. This oversized syringe is also inexpensive, compact and very easy to clean.

The AeroPress has grown in popularity amongst coffee enthusiasts as the go-to manual extraction brewing method. It is so popular that converts from around the globe come together annually to compete in the World AeroPress Championships!

Whilst it is simple to use, there are a number of ways you can brew with the AeroPress including cold brew! But we are going to stick to the basics and provide you with a simple recipe from which you can then play around with and tweak to your liking.

Extra Tips – 

To clean, simply take off the filter cap and shoot the coffee puck and paper filter into the compost. Then rinse the AeroPress with hot water.

We recommend using our plunger blends and single origin for this brew method.

If you like it stronger try brewing for a bit longer or grinding it a bit finer.
