Flying toys and contraptions that look like they belong light years away? Setting world records with disc rings that fly miles, Alan Adler, the inventor of the Aeropress that resembles more of an oversized syringe would never have imagined it would set into motion one of the most slickly run championships in the coffee world. Weaving in his love for aerodynamics with the desire for the highest quality in every brew, Adler took manual brewing soaring to new heights. Fast and convenient, and handy in any terrain, prepare to be amazed by the depth and richness brought forth with each sip from this gravity-defying nifty gadget.
Start heating 200 mL water and grind and take a little more than 1 tablespoon ( 17 grams ) of ground coffee resembling something finer than sea salt in coarseness.
Assemble the Aeropress. Put a paper filter in the cap and pre-wet it and keep it aside.
Invert the Aeropress so that numbers appear upside down and plunger is on the other side. Add the ground coffee.
Add 35 mL of heated water ( ~ 94 C ) and let the coffee bloom for 30 seconds.
Pour remainder of water and wait for another 1 minute.
After a total of 1 minute 30 seconds, stir the grounds and then lock the cap and invert the whole setup in your mug/carafe
Start applying pressure for coffee to get filtered, once you hear a hissing sound you should stop.
