AeroPress, as a combination of immersion and drip coffee, is great if you love a sweet cup full of “low notes”—rich chocolate and nuttiness—with a heavier body than filter coffee, while still maintaining a cleaner cup with less grit than the French press.
Portable, lightweight and versatile, AeroPress is a fast brew method and is compact and made of medical-grade BPA-free plastic, so it’s great when traveling or otherwise on the go. This is a favorite brew method for those who love to experiment with recipes.

YOU WILL NEED
ISLAND GRIND COFFEE
Bring filtered water to a boil.
Place the filter in the AeroPress
Add ground coffee and gently swirl the coffee around.
Set the brewer in standard position on a cup.
Start a timer, add 200ml water, aiming to wet all the coffee during pouring.
Immediately place the plunger on top of the brewer, about 1cm in. This creates a vacuum to stop the coffee from dripping through. Wait 2 minutes.
Holding the brewer and the plunger, gently swirl the brewer. Wait 30 seconds.
Press gently all the way, it takes about 30 seconds.
Drink and enjoy!
