Brewing Coffee with an AeroPress by Pascale Petronin

  1. Remove the plunger and the cap from the chamber
  2. Put a filter in the cap and twist it onto the chamber.
  3. Stand the chamber on a sturdy mug.
  4. Put two AeroPress scoops of fine-drip grind coffee into the chamber/.
  5. Pour hot water slowly into the chamber up to the number 2. We recommend 175f(80C) water for a dark roast and  185F (85C) water for lighter roasts.
  6. Mix the water and the coffee with the stirrer for about 10 seconds.
  7. Wet the rubber seal and insert the plunger into the chamber. Gently press down about a quarter of an inch and maintain that pressure for about 20 to 30 seconds until the plunger bottoms on the coffee. Gentle pressure is the  key to easy AeroPressing.
  8. you've just made a double espresso. For American coffee, top-off the mug with hot water. For a latte, top-off the mug with hot milk.
