Brew with Aeropress
250 ml / 92 - 95 °C
Assemble your AeroPress by inserting the plunger into the brewing chamber, then set the cap and filter aside for now. Place the AeroPress with the plunger facing down and the brewing chamber on top — this is the inverted method. Measure and grind your beans: Using your digital scale, weigh out 18 grams of coffee beans. Grind them to a medium-fine consistency, similar to table salt.
Set up your Aeropress
Weting the filter
Rinse the paper filter with hot water to eliminate any paper flavor and preheat the AeroPress.
Time for the bloom
Start your timer and pour 50 ml of the heated water (200°F/93°C) into the AeroPress chamber, making sure to wet all the coffee grounds. Gently stir with the paddle or spoon for 10 seconds, letting the coffee bloom for 30 seconds. This process releases CO2 from the coffee grounds, enhancing the extraction of flavors.
Pour and let the coffee soak for full flavor
Pour in the rest of the water: Slowly add the remaining 200 ml of water to the AeroPress chamber, making sure all the coffee grounds are saturated. Your total water weight should now be 250 ml. Stir, steep, and enjoy the aroma: Gently stir the coffee and water mixture for another 10 seconds, ensuring even extraction. Allow the coffee to steep for 1min 30sec, and take a moment to enjoy the rich aroma filling the air.
Secure the filter, cap, and remove air
Place the rinsed paper filter into the cap and screw it onto the AeroPress chamber. Before flipping, press down on the plunger slightly to remove any excess air from the brewing chamber. This will help prevent any air bubbles from affecting the final extraction.
Time for the big flip
Time for the big flip: Place your coffee mug or decanter upside down on top of the AeroPress cap. Carefully and quickly flip the whole setup so the mug or decanter is on the bottom and the AeroPress is right side up. Now, apply firm, even pressure on the plunger and press down slowly. This should take about 30 seconds. Stop pressing when you hear a hissing sound, signaling that all the liquid has been extracted. Carefully remove the AeroPress from your mug or decanter. Your expertly brewed coffee, crafted with the inverted method, is ready to be enjoyed. Serve immediately, and savor the rich, complex flavors of your creation.
