THE AEROPRESS: THE COFFEE MAKER FOR EVERY SITUATION
STEP BY STEP PREPARATION
AeroPress coffee is characterized by an intense, full-bodied flavor with little to no bitterness. You vary this in a variety of ways by choosing the coffee, the grind, and the brewing time. High-quality coffee beans with a balanced body are important. The ideal grind is medium-fine, slightly below filter coffee - if you choose too fine, the coffee could become bitter due to over-extraction. Below we present two variants for preparing coffee with the AeroPress - explained step by step.
INSTRUCTION: PREPARATION AEROPRESS
Step 1: AeroPress coffee quantity
Weigh the coffee beans. We recommend 16 g per 200 ml. Depending on personal taste, the amount of coffee can be adjusted.
Step 2: AeroPress grind
Grind the coffee beans. We recommend grinding the coffee beans medium fine.
Step 3: Insert paper filter
Insert a micro paper filter into the filter holder and wash it under hot water.
Step 4: Assemble AeroPress
Put the press plunger and brewing cylinder together.
Step 5: Insert funnel
Place the funnel in the brewing cylinder. This serves to be able to fill the coffee easily.
Step 6: Fill in coffee
Put the pre-portioned coffee into the cylinder.
Step 7: Water quantity and temperature
Boil 220 ml of water. This should already have cooled down to 80 to 95 °C after boiling. Fill the brewing cylinder three-quarters full with hot water by pouring it in a circle.
Step 8: Stir the coffee mixture
Stir evenly and then let the coffee brew for about 30 to 60 seconds.
Step 9: Extraction time AeroPress
Fill the brewing cylinder completely with water. Stir again and allow the coffee to brew. The extraction time is approx. 1 - 1.5 minutes.
Step 10: Screw down the filter attachment
Screw the filter attachment tight with the filter paper inserted.
Step 11: Place AeroPress on cup
Place a cup on the filter holder of the cylinder. Hold the cup and the Aeropress firmly and rotate both 180 °C.
Step 12: Press plunger
Now press the plunger down slowly and carefully.
Step 13: Enjoy coffee
Put down the AeroPress and enjoy the aromatic coffee.
