Aerobie Aeropress

The Aeropress is one of the newest manual coffee makers on the market. It was invented in 2005 by the US American Alan Adler, who also invented the world's fastest Frisbee disc.

Two things were important to the inventor: compact design and delicious results - he, certainly, more than succeeded with the Aeropress. The Aeropress is especially popular for traveling, as it is virtually invulnerable thanks to its sturdy material. But it's not only a to-go alternative, the unusual brewing method is also becoming increasingly popular at home, as it prepares particularly pure coffees and is suitable for both filter and espresso roasts.

Aeropress prepare
Ingredients:
19g of your favorite 19grams filter coffee
200ml filtered water (for store-bought water, we recommend the brands Spree Quell, Volic or Lausitzer)

What you need to prepare:
Aeropress
Aeropress filter paper
Coffee grinder
Digital scale
Stopwatch
Water boiler
Cup

Brewing method (inverted)
1. Bring the water to a boil, then wait 30-60 seconds for it to cool to about 96°C
2. Place the paper filter in the Aeropress lid and wash it out (this prevents paper-like taste in the finished coffee).
3. Push the press plunger with the rubber seal about. 1cm into the brewing cylinder (about to the mark number 4), the lid with the washed filter still remains off.
4. Turn the Aeropress upside down so that the rubber seal looks up and the brewing cylinder sits on top.
5. Grind 19g of filter coffee with a medium to fine grind (you can experiment with this).
6. Place your Aeropress on the scale, add the coffee grounds and press tare.
7. Pour 200g of the 96°C water into the Aeropress and start your timer.
8. Stir the water vigorously to extract the coffee evenly.
9. Now turn the lid on and press the press plunger in a little deeper to press out all the air bubbles.
10. After 1.5 minutes, place the cup upside down on the Aeropress and turn it over with some momentum (so that it doesn't all spill)
12. Now press the plunger down hard all the way, this should take about 15-30 seconds, you will hear a hissing sound.
13. Take the lid off again, press the coffee puck into the organic waste and rinse the Aeropress briefly - it is immediately ready for use again.
14. If you like you can dilute your finished coffee a little more - for a cup of filter coffee we recommend another 100ml of hot (not boiling) water. If you prefer it a little stronger, you can also drink the coffee as it came out of the Aeropress.
