A brief history
A remarkable recent addition to the world of coffee, the Aeropress was perfected by the engineer and inventor Adam Adler. This preparation uses manually generated pressure and owes much of its success to the practicality of the system. It uses a cylindrical, plastic device that fits directly onto the mug and thanks to the compact size, it is easy to take with you and use anywhere.
- Range* 50-70 g/l
- RANGE: refers to the range that can be used for the quantity of coffee, which will vary according to personal taste and the type and roast of the coffee being used.
- Brew ratio* 1:15 recommended
- BREW RATIO: the relationship between the amount of coffee and the quantity of water used (eg: 1:15 = 60 g coffee per 900 ml water).
- Quantities for two cups:
- 20 g coffee for 300 ml water
- Aerobie Aeropress
- Aeropress filters
- Electric kettle
- Professional grinder doser
- Mug (150-300 ml)
- Heat the water in the kettle to a temperature between 92 °C and 96 °C.
- Fit the paper filter into the plastic adaptor and pour boiling water over it to warm it.
- Screw the adaptor back on and place the lower tube of the Aeropress with the filter over a mug.
- Put the correct amount of coffee in the lower tube, you can use a funnel to make this easier.
- Pour hot water from the kettle over the coffee using a circular movement, this should take about 10 seconds and wet all the coffee.
- Fit the upper tube onto the lower tube without pressing down and wait about 1 minute and 15 seconds.
- Slowly press down the upper tube using constant, gentle pressure. It should take about 20-30 seconds to push it down all the way down, and you will hear a hiss when it reaches the bottom.
- Remove the device from the mug.
- Serve the coffee.
