Aeropress Brew Guide

The AeroPress is a great coffee brewer and can be used at home or on the go.
It's simple to use, travel friendly and produces a well rounded, smooth cup of coffee.

18g Coffee
260g water

Aeropress parts explained:
Top (plunger side)
Bottom (chamber side/printed part)
Filter Holder (black screw-on cap)
Filter (paper disc)


  • Put the kettle on to boil.
  • Grind 18g of coffee (medium/fine - like caster sugar)
  • Place the filter paper in the filter holder and rinse with water and screw the filter holder onto the bottom of the AeroPress.
  • Place the bottom of the AeroPress on your cup (or decanter), then put both on your scales.
  • Add the 18g of ground coffee to the brewer, level the coffee bed with a slight tap on the side.
  • Zero your scales and start your timer.

Now to add water:

  • Slowly pour 260g of water into the AeroPress chamber (water should be just off the boil - approximately 93 degrees).
  • Stir the water/coffee mix to ensure that all the coffee grounds are saturated.
  • Put the top (plunger side) into the bottom (chamber) of the AeroPress and pull up slightly.

Time to let the coffee brew:

  • Leave to brew for 1minute 30 secs.
  • Gently apply downward pressure to the AeroPress - pushing it down for approximately 20 seconds and stop pushing as soon as you hear a hissing sound.

Remove the AeroPress from your cup, pour - enjoy.
