I can completely relate to this post hence I’m inspired to share our own Aeropress version with you.
Being married to a coffee snob definitely has its perks. Like Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere, I’m very fortunate to receive a cup of good coffee first thing most mornings. It has become a luxury that I find hard to live without!
Without further ado, this is what
we Mr M does in the morning to wake us up!
Steps (in Mr M’s own words with minor modifications by yours truly):
#1. Heat the water.
We I try to bring it close to the boil but are am lazy about measuring exact temperature.
#3. Use the inversion method (with the Aeropress upside down)
#4. Add around 210g of water to the Aeropress.
#5. Add grind. This is often done as 2 steps (with less water and then top it up) but it’s morning and
we’re I’m lazy.
#6. Leave for a minute to brew. Meanwhile, wet a paper filter to remove any papery taste.
#7. Attach paper filter to the top, flip the Aeropress over a mug and plunge slowly.
without with milk.
Although the coffees haven’t been made with a 100% precision (what does this look like anyway?) they tasted awesome most of the time (hey just being honest here!) These steps may seem a little fussy at the beginning but once you get the hang of things, coffee making becomes quite easy.
Hmm, why do I have a feeling that the odd numbers used are a result of Mr M’s actuarial mind?
Disclaimer: The above steps are what we do at home, and by no means should be compared to a professional barista’s SOP.
