Aeropress Brew Guide

AeroPress is a simple, easy-to-use coffee maker that consistently brews better tasting coffee and espresso drinks. A rapid brewing process extracts the most flavor from your beans, giving you more rich, pure tasting coffee with no grit, no bitterness, and less acidity. 

Grind Size: Drip – Fine

Dose: 17-21 grams

Water: 260 grams 205F


What You Will Need:

  • 17-21 grams of Three Hats Coffee
  • Burr Grinder
  • Gram Scale
  • Timer
  • Filtered Water
  • Kettle
  • Aeropress
  • Filter
  • Serving Vessel
  • Spoon

Brewing Instructions:

  • Fill pouring kettle with hot water. Place paper filter in cap, rinse, and attach to Aeropress.
  • Weigh coffee to desired strength (17-21 grams) and grind.
  • Use the funnel to transfer coffee into Aeropress. Place on a mug, or server, and put on a scale.
  • Start your timer and pour 260g of water in 25 seconds (to the ‘4’ mark). Remove mug, with Aeropress, from the scale.
  • At 35 seconds, stir for 5 seconds.
  • At 45 seconds, place the plunger on top and slowly press for 1 minute.
  • When the coffee bed looks dry, and nearly all the water is pushed out, ease up on your pressure.
  • Remove the Aeropress, open the cap, and push out the coffee grounds to clean up. Serve.


BREW TIP: When pressing out the Aeropress, do not force the plunger down. A slow, steady press out is the key to a clean cup that is free of sediment. When nearing the end, and you can see coffee grounds, ease up on the pressure and stop when you hear a faint hissing noise. Do not push the plunger all the way down. There should be an air space of a couple inches between the plunger and the coffee.

GRIND TIP: If it is too hard to press out, your grind is probably too fine. If it is too easy, your grind is too coarse.
