About the AeroPress

AeroPress coffee makers brew amazingly delicious, silky smooth coffee in about a minute, and has become a favorite of ours for how simple and fast it is to use and clean.

Alan Adler, a renowned inventor and retired Stanford University engineering instructor, began studying the coffee brewing process and analyzing coffee maker designs in 2004 in order to create a truly innovative device that would brew a superior cup of coffee. At a coffee industry trade show in November, 2005, he debuted his breakthrough coffee maker: the AeroPress!

Over the years, we believe we've perfected a simple recipe that is easy for everyone to get started with an AeroPress - scroll down and see it for yourself!

STEP 1: GET THE ESSENTIALS

Your AeroPress should come with what you see above. We suggest preheating everything before you start. You should have:

- Syzygy Specialty Coffee

- AeroPress Kit

- Kettle (Gooseneck preferred)

STEP 2: THE RIGHT GRIND

Grind the coffee a   bit finer than Sea Salt. We're doing 15gr of Coffee to 225 mL of water (ratio of 1:15).

STEP 3: RINSE THE FILTER

Place a single circular filter into the filter-cap, and rinse it with hot water. This warms   it and removes papery taste.

STEP 4: ADD THE COFFEE

Add the coffee to the pre-heated AeroPress. Use the funnel to prevent a mess!

STEP 5: TURN UP THE HEAT

With 15 grams of coffee, we'll need 225mL of water to be heated to 89°C (192°F).

STEP 6: BLOOM IT!

Pour 2x as much water as you have coffee - in this case, 30mL. This will expand the fresh coffee grounds in a process called  blooming. Wait 30 seconds.

STEP 7: STIR IT GENTLY

Use the included stirrer to make sure all the coffee has interacted with the water.

STEP 8: ADD THE REMAINING WATER

Pour the remaining 195 mL of water, slowly, in a circular motion. In the end, stir briefly with the included stirrer.

STEP 9: SEAL THE DEAL

Screw the filter-cap on top of the AeroPress and wait for the coffee to brew - we   recommend brewing for approximately 1 minute.

STEP 11: AERO-PRESS IT

Slowly but firmly press from the top. Stop as soon as you hear a slight "hissing" sound. If you push further, you will start extracting bitter flavors!
