Do you like your coffee strong, delicious & quick? Then this may be the go to coffee maker for any coffee connoisseurs. Perfect for the traveler or camper as it’s easy to store, carry & clean. Not to mention easy to use.
What you need:
- An Aeropress
- A mug
- Paper or metal filter
- A scale
- A timer/watch
- 20g of ground coffee (per coffee)
- 200g of hot water at around 90ºC
This will make you enough coffee for one large mug or two small cups of coffee. If you want a stronger cup of coffee, just increase the amount of ground coffee.
Put your Aeropress on the scale with the filter end up. Insert a filter into the plastic cap and keep aside.
Add 20g of ground coffee into the Aeropress.
Start your timer. Pour in 200g of hot water into the chamber. The water should be at about 88ºC–90ºC.
Let it sit for one minute.
Remove the Aeropress from the scales. Place the cap with the filter inside on top of the Aeropress, locking it into place. Now comes the tricky bit.
Place your mug on top and flip the whole thing over. Now you’re ready to press.
Gently press down at a slow and steady pace until there is no more water to push through the device. You will hear a little hissing sound when the water has all been pressed out.
Lift the Aeropress out and you’re ready to drink your coffee.
