Coffee 101 - Aeropress

It's time to get creative.  Let's talk about the Aeropress.  You may have seen it.... may have heard about it in coffee shops... But have you ever tried it?  If you haven't, you need to.  This will brew one of the smoothest cups of coffee you've ever had.

The Aeropress was invented by Alan Adler (inventor of the Aerobie Frisbee), and has spawned its own culture of coffee brewing.  There's even a World Aeropress  Championship (yes, seriously)!

The long and short of the Aeropress is smoother coffee (higher ph, so less acidity), and a super short brew time.

There are all kinds of creative methods, including the one I use, the inverted method, to brew a great Aeropress cup of coffee. We will stick with the instructions for the traditional method.

You need an Aeropress, ground coffee, and a kettle.  Simple enough!

1) Put a filter in the cap of your Aeropress and screw it onto the chamber, and place it on top of your favourite mug.

2) Fill the Aeropress with your ground coffee (one rounded scoop using the provided scoop)

3) Fill the Aeropress with water (about 200 degrees Fahrenheit) up to the number 4.

4) Give it a stir, and place the plunger on top of the press.

5) Wait about a minute, then carefully plunge!

You're now ready to enjoy one of the smoothest cups of coffee you've ever had.  Our Espresso Roast is absolutely fantastic brewed in an Aeropress!
