AeropressRead on to learn how to get the best-tasting Numa Coffee out of your AeroPress coffee maker.
What You'll Need
- AeroPress Coffee Maker
- Freshly-Ground Coffee
- Scale (optional)
Brew Time3-5 Minutes
Step 1Measure one rounded AeroPress spoonful, or about 2.5 tablespoons of coffee, and grind the coffee to a medium consistency, about as fine as table salt.
Step 2Get the AeroPress ready to brew by placing the filter in the basket. Next, preheat the brewer and rinse the filter with hot water. This gets rid of any paper flavor and warms everything up. Use some of the remaining hot water to warm up your favorite mug as well.
Step 3Discard the rinse water from your mug. Affix the basket to the bottom of the brew chamber and place it on top of the mug and remove the funnel.
Step 4Pour filtered hot water (about 205°F) into your brewer and saturate all the grounds. Pour to the No. 4 on the AeroPress and spin the chamber to ensure all the coffee is saturated.
Step 5Stir the “slurry” (coffee and water mixture) and place the plunger on the brew chamber and pull up slightly to create a pressure seal (don’t plunge just yet).
Step 6After about 1-1:30 mins, remove the pressure seal and give the slurry another stir. Replace the plunger and press down slowly with steady pressure, stopping when you hear a hissing sound.
Step 7Clean up your AeroPress and enjoy your coffee!
