The Aeropress is easily the best option for brewing on-the-go.
Step 1: Bring to a boil enough water for both the Aeropress and your brew vessel. About 400 grams.
Step 2: Insert a paper filter into the Aeropress’s detachable plastic cap.
Step 3: Weigh out 15 grams of coffee.
Step 4: Grind your coffee. Aeropress calls for a fine grind.
Step 5: Assemble your Aeropress. Make sure it is dry.
Step 6: Place it on your scale with the flared end up, then tare the weight. The numbers should appear upside-down.
Step 7: Add your ground coffee.
Step 8: Add twice the weight of water to your amount of grounds. For example, if using 15 grams of coffee, add 30 grams of water. Water temperature should be around 200 degrees.
Step 9: Gently immerse the grounds with a stirrer. The goal here is to guarantee even saturation. Let this sit for 30 seconds.
Step 10: Add another 160 grams of water and let sit for one minute.
Step 11: Use the remainder of your water (it should be about 200 grams) to wet your filter and cap.
Step 12: After a minute has elapsed, give your grounds 10 vigorous stirs.
Step 13: Screw the cap onto the Aeropress. Be careful…it’s hot!
Step 14: Carefully flip the entire brew onto a carafe or mug and begin applying downward pressure. Firmly, but gently, press down for 30 seconds until all coffee has been pressed out of the Aeropress.
Step 15: Unscrew the cap and discard the used grounds. Rinse the brewer.
Step 16: Enjoy your coffee.
