Video guide:

Equipment

  • AeroPress
  • Paper disc filters
  • 14g fresh ground coffee
  • Kettle
  • Paddle / spoon

Step 1
Place the paper filter into the black cap and attach cap to the AeroPress.

Step 2
Rinse the filter and heat your glass by pouring hot water through the filter into the glass.

Step 3
Remove cap and connect the two cylinders of the AeroPress.

Step 4
Place coffee grounds into the AeroPress using the funnel. This helps the coffee settle evenly and stops it sticking to the sides.

Step 5
Using a circular motion, pour the water gently to completely saturate the grounds, then continue pouring to fill the chamber.

Step 6
Carefully stir using the paddle to ensure there are no pockets of dry coffee grounds.

Step 7
Attach the black cap with the rinsed filter inside.

Step 8
Place your cup on top.

Step 9
Carefully flip the AeroPress over. Plunge firmly and steadily for 30 seconds. Enjoy!

Remember, when making coffee at home:

  • Fresh is best when it comes to coffee – we recommend buying your coffee in smaller quantities, more frequently.
  • We custom-grind for all brewing methods – just tell our staff how you make your coffee at home, or select your brewing method when you order online.
  • Use filtered water where possible.
  • Water should always be hot but not boiling, as boiling water will burn the coffee grounds. Aim for 92°c.
