Pour 225ml of water into the AeroPress in within 15 seconds and stir to ensure all grounds are wet.

At 1min, remove plunger and gently stir to break the crust at the top. Replace plunger. 

7. Press down on the plunger

At 1:15, using just your body weight, press down on the plunger. Stop when you hear hissing. This should be finished by 2minutes.
