Joel from Artisti shows his favorite way of making coffee when you're out and about in the wilderness camping, picnicking, hiking or some epic adventure. What Joel is using is an AeroPress and some of our Signature Blend (aka Champion) Coffee.
Hi guys Joel from Artisti Coffee Roasters. Today we're going to go through how we use an AeroPress.
A couple of things that you'll need which aren't 100% necessary is a set of scales to weigh everything out. If you don't have scales you can always kind of just guesstimate, as I say. Another thing that's really really handy is a temperature control kettle. If you don't have a temperature control kettle the temperature of the water that we're using today is 94 degrees so boil your kettle and leave it for about a minute and then that should actually reduce the temperature back down to around the 90 to 94 degree mark. In addition to that very important we're going to need 17 grams of medium to fine grind coffee today we're using a single origin coffee, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. As I said 17 grams is what we're using to get one cup. Today you can adjust that recipe the amount of water to the amount of coffee to adjust the strength of the brewer that you're after.
Alright let's get started. Today we're going to be using the inverted AeroPress method which is a really really handy way to not let anything drip anywhere or get messy. So hot tip use the inverted method! The way that we're actually going to do that is to depress the plunger straight into our AeroPress only a small amount and turn it upside down and we're then going to add our 17 grams of coffee straight into our AeroPress. Then we're going to jiggle it around to make sure that that bit of coffee is nice and flat. We can then get our metal filter that we're using today.
A paper filter is fine too but we find we get better results with the metal filter. Pop that in your filter basket and have that sitting next to the AeroPress ready to go. Alright so first thing we need to do is add 40 grams of water and let that bloom for 30 seconds. The bloom is really important because it allows our coffee to release carbon dioxide out and start that process of brewing.
Once that's bloomed for 30 seconds we can get our water which is 95 degrees and add the rest of our water we want to go right up to the top of the AeroPress which should be about 220 grams. You can be actually quite fast with your pour here. It doesn't hurt to actually mix the coffee in the water up once we've done that.
We're going to leave that to brew for a total time of a minute 30. Alright so now that's brewed for a minute 30 we've come back and we're just going to take it off our scales. We're going to get our metal filter and our filter basket and put that straight on to the top of our AeroPress. Make sure it's on there nice and tight and I'm actually going to depress the AeroPress down until I see the coffee starting to come up through the bottom of the basket. So what this is doing is just getting rid of any air that's caught in that chamber giving it a nice press down at a really slow steady rate until I see the coffee starting to come through. Okay so that's starting to come through now you can possibly see a little bit of the coffee creamer coming through there. I'm gonna get my glass, no drips, turn it upside down and then evenly depress the AeroPress down to get my beautiful rich beverage. So once you hear little hisses that's when we're stopping and it's complete.
So brewing an AeroPress is that quick and easy we've been selling these for a
number of years now and it's still our most popular home brewing method because it's relatively foolproof cheap and effective. If you check out our web store I'm sure you can pick up one of these with the lovely bag of coffee at the right price.
