Ready to take your home brewing to the next level? The pros at Bristol’s Extract Coffee Roasters talk us through the trusty AeroPress

You’ll need

  • AeroPress
  • AeroPress filter
  • Grinder
  • Scales
  • Timer
  • Mug
  • A cracking bag of coffee
  1. An AeroPress will hold 240ml of water, so medium-fine grind 18g of coffee beans.
  2. Rinse out the paper filter before constructing the AeroPress: we recommend putting both chamber and plunger together and standing them upside down.
  3. Place the coffee in the bottom of the top chamber before adding the water on top. Start the timer and stir the grounds and water for 30 seconds.
  4. After 2 minutes total brew time, pop the cap on with the filter inside. Flip the AeroPress on top of the mug, slowly plunge for 30 seconds and enjoy.
