AeroPress® HOME COFFEE BREWING GUIDE

The AeroPress is a remarkably diverse brewing method. Like any immersion-style method, you can choose a wide range of grinds and water weight and still make a great cup of java. Our ratios below reflect how we like to make the AeroPress, but then maybe you’re an AeroPress World Champion (a real thing!) and have your own nuanced method. Either way, the AeroPress makes a deeply satisfying cup that has the heavy body of a French Press but the cleaner cup of a Pour-Over.
