There are two main options for making coffee for two. You can use a normal style assembly and pour over extra water, or you can use AeroPress inverted assemble, and further dilute your coffee if you need to. 


We will explain both methods!


AeroPress Coffee Instructions

  1. Boil 550ml of water and leave to cool to 175°
  2. Insert a paper filter into the cap and rinse slightly to remove papery taste and create a seal
  3. Screw the cap onto the main chamber
  4. Carefully place the chamber onto the top of a large mug or tall jug, with the cap pointing into the mug
  5. Pour around 70ml of boiled water onto your coffee grounds, stir carefully to make sure the grounds are saturated, and then rest for 30 seconds
  6. Start to slowly pour more water into the chamber, some will start to slowly drip into your mug
  7. Once you’ve poured in around 200ml of water stop and use the AeroPress paddle to stir for 10 seconds before continuing to slowly pour in water
  8. Coffee will continue dripping into the mug, giving you space to add all 550ml
  9. Once you’ve run out of water insert the plunger and start to very slowly depress
  10. Stop once you hear the hissing which signifies the AeroPress is empty, then remove it from your mug
  11. Separate the coffee into two cups or mugs and enjoy!


Aeropress Inverted Method

What is the Best Coffee for AeroPress?

For either the normal or AeroPress recipe inverted you can use any kind of coffee that you like, but make sure it’s very finely ground. If you are grinding your own, it should be finer than sand.
