This recipe is an inverted recipe. So first you are going to want to invert the Aeropress and make sure that it has a good seal. 

Next, you are going to want to wet your filter to remove any paper taste.

Then weigh out 16 grams of coffee and grind on a coarse grind setting, about as coarse as you would grind for drip or a little finer than a french press grind setting.

Pour the ground coffee into your inverted Aeropress on top of your scale. Start your timer, then pour 170 grams of water quickly over the grounds.  

stirring aeropress

Stir three times, making sure all grounds are evenly incorporated into the water. 

Wait till the timer is at two minutes and stir another three times.

Once you hear a slight hissing sound at the end of your press, stop pressing and you are done! Your total time should be right at two and a half minutes.
