AeroPress

The  AeroPress was developed in 2005 by Alan Adler, the founder of Aerobie a manufacturer of high performance sports equipment.
His aim was to find a method of preparation that would produce the best flavor and taste without the undesired bitterness and acidity. After many different designs, the AeroPress was born, which has gained unbelievable popularity over the last few years, meanwhile even regular championships are organized in this kind of preparation!

Coffee for AeroPress

Similar to the French Press , there is no special coffee for brewing with the AeroPress .

Most coffees are suitable depending on personal preference.
Lighter roasts have rather floral, light flavors and aroma, the darker the roasting, the more intense the taste experience.

As an introduction to this form of preparation, we would recommend the following coffees:

Single Origin, Light roast, mild

Kaffeefabrick Sidamo

Single Origin Medium Roast, intense

Goldschmidt - Galapagos

Espresso Blends - Medium roast profile

Varesina Top

Caffè Diemme Gold

Caffè New York Extra

Taste and Aroma

Coffee brewed with the  AeroPress has more body than the one prepared with French Press or Drip Brew . Also, the coffee contains little to no bitterness and unpleasant acidity.

Taste and aroma depend very much on the coffee used, the grind level and brewing time.

Grind Level for AeroPress

The degree of grinding should be a bit finer than the one for the filter - like table salt. If the grinding is too fine, this is often expressed by too bitter a taste (the brew and extraction time is too long, bitter substances are thus dissolved from the coffee).

Coffee Quantity per Serving for AeroPress

On 220ml between 14 and 16 grams (2-3 heaped tablespoon, according to personal taste) of ground coffee should be used.

Coffee preparation with the AeroPress

There are two methods to brew coffee with the AeroPress :

Es gibt zwei Varianten um mit der  AeroPress den Kaffee zu brühen:

  1. | The classic method
  2. | The inverted method

Aktuell scheint sich die invertierte Methode durchgesetzt zu haben, wir möchten hier aber beide Methoden beschreiben

The classic method

  1. | Push plunger out of chamber
  2. | Put a filter in the cap and moisten it with hot water
  3. | Twist the cap onto the chamber
  4. | Place the brewing cylinder on a stable cup or jug ​​and put the ground coffee in the chamber
  5. | Fill the brewing cylinder up to the mark (4) with hot water (85-95 degrees - less temperature for lighter roasts, higher temperature for darker roasts)
  6. | Stir the coffee for 10 seconds
  7. | Insert the plunger and allow the coffee to brew for about 40 to 60 seconds.
  8. | Press the plunger slowly and gently downwards.
  9. | Remove the cap, push the plunger to eject the used coffee and rinse the rubber seal
  10. | Enjoy your coffee!

The inverted method

  1. | Push the plunger approx. 2-3cm in the chamber (approximately to the mark (4)) and turn it around
  2. | Put a filter in the cap and moisten it with hot water
  3. | Put the ground coffee in the chamber
  4. | Fill the brewing cylinder with hot water (85-95 degrees - less temperature for bright roasts, higher temperature for dark roasts) to the mark (1) (inverted).
  5. | Stir the coffee for 10 seconds
  6. | Allow the coffee to brew for about 40 to 60 seconds.
  7. | Twist the cap onto the chamber
  8. | Carefully turn the aeropress around and place it on a cup or jug ​​(almost no coffee will escape due to the vacuum in the brewing cylinder).
  9. | Press the plunger slowly and gently downwards.
  10. | Remove the cap, push the plunger to eject the used coffee and rinse the rubber seal.
  11. | Enjoy your coffee!
