*AeroPress Coffee Maker
Coffee Is Not Roasted Until You Place Your Order
This is my go to coffee maker just about everyday and especially while traveling. Only needing hot water you wont find a better coffee maker anywhere. What really intrigues me is the simplicity of the system. When comparing it to other single serve option this wins hands down. This is a must coffee brewer. Love it or your money back! Christopher.
Fast and convenient, the AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker makes one of the best cups of coffee you'll ever taste. This innovative uses the ideal water temperature and gentle air pressure brewing to produce coffee and espresso that has rich flavor with lower acidity and without bitterness. It makes 1 to 4 cups of coffee or espresso (enough for 1 or 2 mugs), features a micro filtered for grit free coffee, and takes just 1 minute to make coffee (actual press time takes only 20 seconds).
To brew a double espresso or 10-ounce cup of coffee:
- Place a microfilter in the bottom cap of the AeroPress chamber and twist the cap tightly closed.
- Place two scoops of ground coffee from the included AeroPress scoop into the chamber.
- Stand the chamber on a sturdy mug, then proceed to pour hot water into the top of the chamber (175 degrees F is optimal).
- Stir the water and coffee with the included paddle for about 10 seconds.
- Insert the plunger into the chamber and gently press down about a quarter of an inch and continue to maintain that pressure for 20 to 30 seconds (gentle pressure is the key to easy AeroPressing).
The Original Method
- Heat the water: Bring your water to a boil then let it cool for about 1 minute. (You're aiming for something in between 175°F and 195°F.)
- Grind the beans: Measure out 1 full AeroPress scoop of coffee (about 2 tablespoons) and grind until fine. Makes 1 cup.
- Wet the filter: Assemble the AeroPress with a paper filter inside the cap and place on top of a mug or cup. Drizzle a little warm water in to wet the filter.
- Add the coffee: Place the funnel on top of the cup and pour in the coffee. Remove the funnel.
- Add the water: Pour in coffee until it comes up to the top line on the AeroPress.
- Stir: Use the paddle stirrer (or a spoon) to stir once, briefly.
- Press: Insert the plunger. Firmly press down the plunger until you hear a long hiss.
- Taste and dilute: Taste the coffee and if desired add more water. The AeroPress makes a concentrated cup of coffee and if desired you can split this amount between two cups and add a little more hot water.
The Upside-Down/Reverse Method
- Assemble the AeroPress upside-down: Heat the water and grind the coffee as described above. Assemble the AeroPress by putting plunger in the chamber. Flip upside-down but don't put the cap or filter on.
- Pour in the coffee: Put the funnel in. Pour the ground coffee (from 1 AeroPress scoop of coffee) into the the chamber.
- Pour in the water: Add hot water until the chamber is almost full.
- Stir once: Use the paddle (or a spoon) to stir once.
- Steep for 1 minute: Try steeping for 1 minute, but adjust in future batches if this comes out too strong or too weak.
- Put on the cap: Place a paper filter in the cap and screw tightly onto the chamber.
- Flip over, carefully! Quickly and carefully flip the full AeroPress over so the cap is down, and place on a mug or pitcher.
- Press: Press as directed above.
- Taste and dilute: Again, taste and dilute if desired with more hot water.
- Funnel: The funnel looks a little goofy and it's not necessary, especially if you have a sure hand! But I like using it to get the grounds neatly into the narrow tube.
- Mug or pitcher? You exert a lot of pressure when pressing the AeroPress, and while I've never broken a mug or cup while brewing, we've switched to using a metal coffee bar-style pitcher to press into.

With total immersion brewing, the AeroPress produces uniform extraction for the ultimate in full coffee flavor.
