Aeropress Recipe

This is the recipe I've been using since I got an Aeropress. I got it originally from Shawn Blanc; I'm not sure whether or not I've actually modified it from his original recipe.

  1. Put the two pieces of the Aeropress together; I like to line the bottom of the plunger up with middle of the (4) marker.
  2. Flip the Aeropress upside down. Note that you shouldn't have the filter/cap screwed on at the moment.
  3. (optionally) Pre-wet a filter and place it in the cap, and set it aside.
  4. Grind 15g of coffee about halfway between coarse (french press) and fine (espresso)--right in the middle of your grinder's settings. Pour it into the Aeropress.
  5. Boil your water, start your timer, and add 50ml of water to the Aeropress. Make sure all of the coffee gets wet and "blooms."
  6. After 45 seconds, add 200ml more water. Stir.
  7. Place the cap and filter on and screw it onto the top of the Aeropress.
  8. After another 45 seconds, carefully flip the Aeropress over on top of your mug. Slowly press the Aeropress down over the span of 30-45 seconds.
