How to Brew Coffee with the AeroPress ~ A Video Tutorial

AeroPress, previously included on our 2012 Holiday Gift Guide, is the "latest craze" in coffee brewing.  Check out this video tutorial by Coffee Nate on how to brew a rich, flavorful cup of coffee using the AeroPress.



Step By Step AeroPress Instructions (as outlined on the video):

  1. Wet the rubber piston and insert it into the brewing chamber about 1/4 inch
  2. Stand the brewer upside down (look at the numbers)
  3. Place the black funnel over the opening
  4. Pour the ground coffee into the funnel
  5. Remove the funnel, start the timer, and slowly add the hot water
  6. Pour the water in a circular motion, ensuring that all of the coffee is saturated
  7. Fill to the top of the circle around the number “1″
  8. Slowly stir for about 10 seconds (Stir slowly to reduce the drop in brewing temperature)
  9. Place the filter disk onto the top of the brewer and secure with black filter cover by turning clockwise
  10. Wait until the timer reads “1:00″
  11. Carefully, with two hands, flip the brewer upright, and rest it on the top of your mug
  12. Apply slow, steady pressure on the piston (Like a giant coffee syringe)  Be sure you are pushing straight down, no angling
  13. When you get close to the bottom, you will begin to hear a hissing noise.  Remove the brewer from your mug when this starts.
  14. Use second container to finish pressing out the rest of the air and liquid.  Press very firmly.
  15. Remove the filter cover and filter disk
  16. Eject the spent coffee grounds into the second container or compost pile/bucket 
  17. Rinse the rubber piston with water before pulling it back through the brewer
  18. Enjoy!

Mahalo, Coffee Nate!  

Who knew that AeroPress is from Aerobie, the makers of "high performance toys"?
