AeroPress offers a medium-bodied brew that is heavier than a delicate pour over, but lighter than a full-bodied french press.
This brew method can add balance to very bright coffees, mellowing the flavour by cutting the acidity. This brew method is also extremely quick and easy to execute and very light and portable, making it great for travelling.
- 1. A filter goes into a screen that fits on the bottom of the AeroPress chamber.
- 2. Ground coffee is poured into the chamber and then hot water is poured on top and stirred.
- 3. After the coffee has brewed for a minute, the AeroPress plunger is pressed down inside the chamber, pushing the water and coffee through the filter, resulting in a medium-bodied coffee while trapping the grounds.
