AeroPress coffee maker
The AeroPress is one of the best coffee making devices you can buy for £20. It is so simple to use and the results are excellent. It's a paper filter based method (although metal discs are available) which means the resulting brew is very clean and clear without the heavy mouthfeel and sediment often found with a cafetiere.
It's very simple to use and the grind size isn't particularly important. If you use a course grind you will need to infuse for longer, a finer grind will require a shorter infusion time. Experimentation is key and there are many methods to be found online.
We keep it simple and do the following:
- 15g of coffee to 250ml of water
- 1 minute infusion time using water at about 90 degrees and stir just once.
- Use a medium grind for the coffee
Now simply adjust the grind to get the correct brew strength and keep the other variable constant.
