The AeroPress is a piston-style brewer that forces coffee through a thin paper filter directly into a cup. It brews just a single serving of coffee at a time, but its size and durability make it a favourite device among travellers and campers.
Attach the piston to the base of the AeroPress. Insert the piston just to slightly, do not insert it completely in the base and place it such that base is facing upwards.
Place the filter paper on the detachable cap and rinse the it with some lukewarm water.
Add some lukewarm water and discard it into a sink or a vessel to preheat the AeroPress.
Add grounded coffee into your AeroPress and shake it slightly to create a flat bed of grounded coffee.
Slowly add roughly 25% water in a swirling motion and give it a gentle stir after a couple of seconds.
Slowly add more 25% water roughly and stir the coffee 4-8 times.
Slowly add the rest of the water and stir the coffee 4-8 times.
Place the filter cap on the top and rotate it to ensure it is locked to the AeroPress.
Place the container you would like to extract on the top and file the AeroPress and the container and then give it a gentle swirl.
Slowly press the piston of the AeroPress with wither your forearm or your palm until the entire coffee is extracted into the vessel. Enjoy!
