Ready for another fantastic cup? Let's rock this AeroPress recipe!

Gear Up:

  • AeroPress or AeroPress Go
  • AeroPress Micro Filter Papers or Fellow Prismo
  • Coffee Scales
  • Coffee Grinder

What You'll Need:

  • 12g of coffee (medium grind)
  • 200ml of water

Let's Brew:

  1. Get all your cool gear and coffee lined up.
  2. Pop a filter paper into the cap and give it a good rinse with plenty of water.
  3. Heat up your water to a toasty 97°C.
  4. Set your AeroPress in the inverted position, with the wide parts on top and bottom (screw cap facing up).
  5. Grind up that coffee to a medium grind, like caster sugar.
  6. Toss 12g of coffee into the AeroPress, give it a gentle shake to even things out.
  7. Put the AeroPress on the scales and hit reset to zero.

Pour and Press Magic:

  1. Start that timer and pour 200 grams of hot water in a circular dance.
  2. Give it a good stir – five times should do it. Make sure all the grounds are soaking.
  3. Screw on the cap and wait until 1:45.
  4. Carefully flip that AeroPress onto a vessel at the 2:00 mark.
  5. At 2:00, press down like you mean it! Should take about 20-30 seconds – keep pressing until you hear that satisfying 'hissing' sound.
  6. Aim to have all that deliciousness brewed up by 2:20 – 2:30 minutes.

There you go! Enjoy the magic you just created. Sip, savor, and high five yourself for being a coffee wizard! ☕✨
