The AeroPress was invented by the frisbee maker Aerobie. It is a wonderful, simple and durable device to brew coffee. It makes a rich, nuanced coffee with good body. You can experiment a lot with the AeroPress and there are many different recipes: You can make a weaker coffee or a stronger one – almost as strong as with a Bialetti moka pot.

We recommend this preparation method for the following of our coffees: Goldfinch, Fire Finch, Pintail, Funky and Hummingbird.

What you need

  • AeroPress
  • Grinder
  • Scale
  • Timer

Step by step

Step 1 AeroPress – Step 1

Insert a paper filter into the detachable plastic cap.

Rinse the paper filter with water for about 10 seconds.

Step 2 AeroPress – Step 2

Fasten the cap and use 14 grams of freshly fine filter ground coffee.

Grind should be slightly finer than sea salt.

Step 3 AeroPress – Step 3

Pour 50 ml of water at about 95°C over the coffee.

Stir 3 times and wait for 30 seconds.

Step 4 AeroPress – Step 4

Pour another 150 ml and wait for 60 seconds.

Place the handle on the AeroPress.

This prevents the water from draining through the filter.

Step 5 AeroPress – Step 5

After 60 seconds, press the contents into a large cup or pitcher by using your body weight.

Once it begins to make a hissing sound, your coffee is fully brewed.

Step 6 AeroPress – Step 6

Serve and enjoy!
