Grind Setting: Medium-FineBrewing Time: around 2 minutes 30 secondsBrewing Ratio: generally 6-8g coffee per 100g water (1ml water = 1g water) unless brewing an espresso-style beverage with the AeroPress.

Please be aware that the environment will always impact the conditions under which you brew. Temperature & humidity are two notable factors which may mean your grind setting or extraction time range needs to be altered.

Changes made to the grind setting have consistent results across all brew methods. A coarse grind allows water to pass through coffee without as much resistance as a fine one. It will also mean that the brew time of a courser grind will be longer to allow the flavor to be fully extracted.

A finer grind results in smaller coffee particles, exposing more surface area to the brewing water which can therefore ‘access’ and dissolve the available flavours more easily.

Additionally, always take into account the high level of influence that water chemistry has in your brewing. Experiment with using different bottled waters if your tap water seems to leave you struggling to tune your brews to your taste.

Aeropress (Regular) Step by Step

  1. 1- Prepare all equipment before grinding & brewing. Weigh your coffee dose, and ensure you heat more than enough water to brew with.<br />
  2. 2- Place filter paper in AeroPress cap then attach to bottom of AeroPress. Place the AeroPress on your cup/mug, ensuring that the AeroPress sits on top of it on a flat level.
  3. 3- Rinse the filter & brewing equipment with some heated brewing water. Discard rinsing water from your cup/mug.
  4. 4- Grind coffee & carefully add it to the AeroPress chamber. Distribute evenly & settle the bed of coffee in the filter cap. Tare scales & start timing.
  5. 5- Gently pour water over the coffee until you have added all the brewing water according to the weight in your brew recipe.
  6. 6- Stir gently for a few moments then carefully place the AeroPress plunger into the top of the AeroPress, ensuring it sits as flat as possible. Press down with a vertical motion to push the brewed coffee into the cup/mug. Remove the AeroPress & serve.
