The Only 3 AeroPress Recipes You’ll Need- Barista Edition.

The AeroPress is a great way to make coffee at home, but it can tie up a large chunk of your precious morning.

Often with home coffee brewing the more precise you are following the recipes, the better the results.

Some mornings I find myself hyper-engaged and I pull out all the brewing stops, other times, I just want something that’s quick, easy and gives me a good bang for my time buck.

Time poor or not, these are my go-to BEST and QUICKEST recipes that will get you brewing less and drinking more. 

 

Inverted AeroPress Method-

All these methods we invert the AeroPress. You just flip the AeroPress so that the filter/cap side is facing up, with the plunger on the bottom.

 

What you’ll need-

 


Competition Standard AeroPress Recipe-

The AeroPress has such a cult following that there’s a World Championship for it.

The Everyday AeroPress Recipe-

This recipe is one I use when I’ve got a bit more prep time/wake up early enough.

Water: 150g @ 93°C

  5. Stir once, add the cap and let steep for 1 minute 30 seconds.
  6. Press down slowly for 30 seconds.
  7. Total brew time - 2:30.
  8. Top up your brew with extra hot water to taste.

 

The Hustle for the Bus AeroPress recipe-

Everyone runs out of time.

Coffee: 1 heaped tablespoon

Water: Boil the kettle and let sit for 45 seconds- I put the kettle on just as I jump into the shower.

Brewer: Inverted

Filter: AeroPress Paper

Filter prep: Rinsed with hot water

Grind coffee: Medium Course

  1. Add coffee to the chamber.
  2. Vigorously add the water that’s off the boil.
  3. Fill it to the #1 on the AeroPress (remembering that its inverted) Approx 220ml water.
  4. Agitate the brew with a spoon.
  5. Add the cap and let steep for 2 minutes.
  6. Press down slowly for 30 seconds
  7. Total brew time - 2:30

 

Clean Up and Washing- 

One of the AeroPress’ best attributes.

Undo the drain cap and pop out the used coffee puck into the bin.

Give the unit a good rinse under some hot water and let dry. 

 

The AeroPress is a forgiving way to brew coffee. It does reward those that invest a little more time, but you can get tasty coffee on the run too.

When I first purchased my AeroPress kit, I so appreciated that the Fox crew took time to teach me how to make the most of it. This post is guaranteed to help coffee-makers of all skill levels brew a better cup. Thanks!
