The Aeropress uses air pressure to brew up to four ounces of coffee in around 20 seconds.

Brewing a Double-Espresso, a 10 Ounce Mug of American Coffee, or a Latte[]

  1. Remove the plunger and the cap from the chamber.
  2. Put a filter in th ecap and twist it onto the chamber.
  3. Stand the chamber on a sturdy mug.
  4. Put the 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 175 F (80 C) water for dark roasts and 185 F (85 C) water for lighter roasts.
  6. Mix the water and 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.
