The Aeropress is a portable brewing apparatus, which makes it a great companion for camps and travels. With its easy set-up and minimal clean-up, the Aeropress is a favourite amongst many. It delightfully produces a great cup of medium-bodied coffee with clean flavours.
Brew it the Liberty Style!
Alternatively, the Aeropress may be used without inverting the chamber at the start, as per manufacturer instructions.
Bring filtered water to boil.
Weigh out 17 g of coffee and grind it to a medium grind.
Place the filter paper in the filter basket. Using freshly boiled water, rinse the paper filter to remove any 'paper taste'.
Invert the Aeropress and pour the coffee grounds into the brew chamber.
Start the timer. Pour just enough water, slightly off the boil, to wet the coffee grounds evenly. Let this slurry bloom for 45 sec.
Continue pouring water until it reaches 240 g. At the 1 min 30 sec mark, agitate the coffee brew with a few quick stirs.
Attach the filter basket and place the Aeropress the right way up on a cup. Press the plunger slowly and evenly, and stop when you hear a hissing sound.
