The AeroPress: An Overview

Compact, portable, and ingeniously designed, the AeroPress is a manual coffee maker that has gained a devoted following since its introduction. Our founder, Tricia, is a big fan on aeropress with coffee makers both at home and at the office!

Invented by Alan Adler, the AeroPress is known for its affordability and ease of use, making it an ideal choice for both beginners and seasoned coffee aficionados.

The Ingredients: Coffee Beans and Water

The foundation of any great cup of coffee lies in the quality of the ingredients. Start with fresh, high-quality coffee beans from Mhor Coffee and grind them to a medium-fine consistency, resembling table salt.

The AeroPress is forgiving when it comes to grind size, allowing you to experiment and find the sweet spot that suits your taste preferences.

Use boiled water at a temperature between 175°F and 205°F (80°C-96°C.  Water temperature is critical for extracting the flavors from the coffee grounds, so find the right balance to avoid under-extraction or over-extraction.

How to use your AeroPress

Assemble your AeroPress by placing a filter in the cap and attaching it to the brewing chamber.

Set the AeroPress on a sturdy mug or carafe, and add the coffee grounds. The standard coffee-to-water ratio is 1:15, but feel free to adjust based on your desired strength.

Begin the brewing process by adding hot water to the coffee grounds, ensuring an even saturation. Stir the mixture gently with the provided paddle, making sure all the grounds are fully immersed. After stirring, attach the plunger to the AeroPress and let the coffee steep for about 1-2 minutes.

The Press: Precision and Control

Once the steeping is complete, it’s time for the press.

With steady pressure, push the plunger down, forcing the brewed coffee through the filter and into your mug. The AeroPress uses air pressure to extract flavors efficiently, resulting in a clean and flavourful cup of coffee.

Experiment with the press time to influence the extraction process. A longer press will yield a stronger cup, while a shorter press will produce a milder brew. The beauty of the AeroPress lies in its adaptability to various preferences and styles.

Cleanup and Maintenance

One of the AeroPress’s key advantages is its easy cleanup.

Simply detach the cap, push the plunger to eject the coffee grounds and filter, and rinse the parts under running water.

The AeroPress is also dishwasher-safe, making it a convenient option for those on the go.

The Grand Finale: Sip and Savor

As you lift the AeroPress from your cup, you’re greeted with a rich aroma which will delight your taste buds.

The resulting coffee is often described as bold, smooth, and exceptionally clean – a testament to the AeroPress’s ability to extract the best from your chosen beans.
