Taking the Plunge: Brewing our Coffees with the Aeropress

Taking the Plunge Part 3: Brewing Our Coffees with the Aeropress

In case it wasn’t obvious, we love the Aeropress. This versatile brewer has brewed us many a great cup of coffee, and we’d like to share with you how we’re enjoying our coffees using the Aeropress. We won’t say that these are the perfect recipes for these coffees, since at the end of the day, the best recipe is the one you keep coming back to. Consider these more of guides to getting some great extraction from your coffee. 

Light Roasted Coffees


For our lighter roasted coffees, you’ll need to set the following:

  • Inverted method
  • Medium-Fine grind size (kosher salt)
  • 96°-98° Celsius water 
  • 15g of coffee to 200ml of water
  1. Preheat your water to 96°-98° Celsius. 
  2. Once your coffee is ground and the water is ready, put the coffee grounds into the inverted Aeropress. 
  3. Pour 30ml of water into the Aeropress and swirl the Aeropress for about 5 seconds or until all the grounds have had contact with the water. 
  4. Wait a minute and a half, then pour the remaining 170ml of water into your Aeropress. 
  5. Seal the Aeropress (don’t forget to pre-wet the filter!) and flip into your server of choice (our recommendation is to not use a glass server in case it cracks from the pressure). 
  6. Swirl the Aeropress clockwise 10 times then press. 
  7. Enjoy! 

Medium Roasted Coffees


For our coffees roasted on the medium side, here’s some parameters you can take note of:

  • Standard method
  • Medium grind size slightly courser than for light roasted coffees)
  • 90°-92° Celsius water
  • 15g of coffee to 200ml of water
  1. Preheat your water to 90°-92° Celsius. 
  2. Once your coffee is ground and the water is ready, put the coffee grounds into the Aeropress (don’t forget to pre-wet the filter!). 
  3. Pour all 200ml of water into the Aeropress and seal with the plunger just enough for it to stop dripping.  
  4. Wait a minute and a half, then swirl 10 times clockwise before pressing into the server. 
  5. Enjoy!
