Easy Aeropress Espresso Recipe

How is an Inverted AeroPress Different?
While these are the standard instructions that come with an AeroPress, many users prefer to assemble it in an inverted style. This allows the coffee grounds to be soaked for longer, giving a stronger flavor.
To assemble in the inverted style, stand the plunger on your worktop with the sealed end facing up. Place the main chamber on the top, with the end that you’ll add the cap to at the top and press down slightly so that the solid end of the plunger creates a seal.
Then add your coffee and water to the chamber and stir, before screwing the cap and filter onto the top, and flipping your AeroPress over, pointing the cap into your mug and depressing the plunger.
Can You Make Cold Brew Coffee AeroPress?
An AeroPress is perfect for cold brew coffee or even making an AeroPress iced coffee.
For a cold brew coffee, simply add room temperate water instead of just boiled, and stir for a full minute instead of 10 seconds, as it will take longer for the grounds to saturate.
If you want to enjoy this as an iced coffee, pour over ice and blend it with milk or extra water.
How Much Caffeine in AeroPress Coffee?
For an AeroPress Espresso use a 1:3 ratio. This is around 110mg of caffeine.
Making Lattes and Other Drinks Using an AeroPress
You can use the espresso made with your AeroPress as the base for all of your favorite caffeinated drinks.
For a latte, add steamed milk. You can do this either using the steamer on an espresso machine or a separate milk frother. Alternatively, add warm (not boiling) milk to a French Press and frother by repeatedly depressing the plunger.
Pour the warm milk close to the surface of the coffee, giving it chance to fold together, then spoon on the milk froth from the top.
For flavored and sweetened drinks experiment by adding different syrups and extracts. Try blending these with ice for easy AeroPress frappes.
An AeroPress is a perfect way to enjoy a quick espresso at home. It’s a fab addition to your kitchen, whether you are a coffee brewing newbie or an expert with plenty of experience. This recipe is incredibly easy and always tastes fantastic.
Remove the cap from the AeroPress and add a paper filter.
Dampen this with water (this helps to create a seal and removes the papery taste).
Screw the cap back onto the AeroPress main chamber.
Start by grinding your coffee beans (or use ground powder), you should grind them very finely.
Boil the water in a pan on the stove or in the microwave and leave to cool slightly (to around 175°).
Place the cap of the AeroPress carefully onto the top of a cup.
Add the ground coffee and shake a little to level it.
Pour in the boiled water and stir with the provided paddle for 10 seconds.
Add the plunger and depress immediately until the plunger reaches the grounds.
Remove the AeroPress and enjoy your espresso.
