This brew guide is our recommendation to brew fantastic coffee with your Aeropress and some Third Wave Coffee. You can find us using this same recipe at the shop every day, which is good news for you because we know this recipe will make some killer coffee with our current offerings!
First, you are going to need to have:
- An Aeropress
- Paper Aeropress filter
- Stir stick
- A bag of Third Wave Coffee
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.
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.
Then securely place the cap with the filter onto the Aeropress and flip the Aeropress on top of a mug or server and press slowly for thirty seconds.
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.
Enjoy your delicious cup of coffee!
