Helpful Tips Concerning the Aeropress

I’ve brought the Aeropress to your attention before. It’s a glorious little contraption that makes incredible coffee. What some of you may not know, however, is that with the Aeropress, the possibilities are endless. There is no single correct way to brew with this lil guy. You can find the traditional Aerobie recipe on our website. This method yields about two ounces of very strong coffee. If you don’t have an espresso machine, this method of brewing is excellent for recipes that call for espresso. Additionally, if you’re a coffee addict like me, there are times when you just aren’t feeling like sipping on an entire cup of coffee. This two-ounce method is perfect for those days when you just need that boost of caffeine. Yet, if you change your mind and decide that you do want to have a bigger cup of coffee, you can simply add water or milk to those two ounces of Aeropress espresso and enjoy your coffee slowly. As the weather in Michigan gets nicer and nicer, you could even try it iced!

So, I’ve made it quite clear how wonderful that two-ounce method is. However, that’s not how we brew it here in the shop. We use the inverted method. The inverted method is exactly what it sounds like–we flip the entire thing inside out. This yields about seven ounces of coffee. It’s strong but not bitter. It ends up very smooth, super clean, rich, and allows for one to really taste the complexities of the coffee. It is an enjoyable experience, for sure.

Any way you cut it, the Aeropress is fantastic. There’s a whole slew of brewing methods when it comes to this awesome thing. You can even work on your own technique. As I said earlier, there is no single right way to use it. I encourage you to try out your own method and report back to us! We are always open to trying out new things–especially when it comes to coffee.

Never stop innovating, my friends.
