To start, heat your water. If you don’t have a temperature control kettle, bring your kettle to the boil and wait for one minute until it has cooled to 95°C.
While your water is heating, place the plunger section on to a flat surface with the rubber seal at the top.
Slide the cylinder section over with the hexagon shape at the top so that the rubber seal is just inside.
Pour the water into the cylinder, almost to the top.
Next, we move onto the coffee. For AeroPress, use a filter or medium-fine grind. If using the Krups GVX2 Grinder, set between 5 and 7. For the best results, we advise grinding coffee just before you brew it. The fresher the grind, the better the taste.
Weigh your coffee, we recommend between 17g of coffee per 250ml water. How much you use is really down to your own preference. If you prefer a stronger brew, use more coffee. Likewise, if you prefer a cup that is not as strong, use less coffee.
Add your ground coffee to the cylinder and gently agitate until the coffee is fully immersed. Leave to brew for 3 minutes.
Wet a filter paper then place the paper into the lid and screw on the top of the cylinder.
Turn the AeroPress over and gently plunge into a mug.
