Gear you will need: AeroPress, S Filter, Scale, Timer, Kettle
Heat water to 201˚F / 94˚C. You will use about 200g of water.
You will use 12g of coffee with a medium grind.
Set the timer to 3:30.
Step 1: Set up
Stand the AeroPress on its plunger. The rubber end plunger should be at about the #4 circle mark.
Set it on the scale.
Reset the scale to zero.
Step 2: Add Coffee
Stand the AeroPress on its plunger, and set it on the scale. (The plunger should be at about the #4 mark on the AeroPress.)
Add the coffee through the end where the end cap and S Filter go.
NOTE: Pour carefully. You need to make sure that none of the coffee ends up around the rim, or the AeroPress will not seal properly.
Step 3: Reset the scale to zero
That way you can accurately measure your water in the next step.
Step 4: Add Water
Add 200g of hot water. This will fill the AeroPress.
TIP: Pour just a little water at first to let the coffee "bloom" for about 20 - 30 seconds before adding the rest of the water.
Step 5: Stir
Just a couple stirs will do it.
Step 6: Seal the AeroPress
Set the S Filter on the end of the AeroPress, and then screw in the black end cap over top of it.
TIP: Wet the black end cap to set the S Filter and black end cap on the AeroPress at the same time.
Step 7: Flip the AeroPress onto the cup
Be careful with this one. Coffee is hot!
TIP: Practice this step without coffee first.
Step 8: Press out the coffee
Press gently but forcefully. This may require some pressure, but don't press too hard, or 1) your plunger could slip and 2) water could squirt out the sides. It should take you about 30 seconds to press an AeroPress.
