Aerobie AeroPress

Cirelli Aeropress Components Small

If you are after the SMOOTHEST, RICHEST, PUREST, FASTEST and SAFEST coffee then you can’t over look the Aerobie AeroPress…

Whether you like it hot or cold the AeroPress is a serious piece of brewing equipment that shouldn’t be overlooked.  Anything from espresso style to filter/plunger and cold brew style flavours.

The beauty of this little device is its flexibility, robustness and its ability to take anywhere…particularly if your travelling.  There is no longer an excuse for poor coffee. You simply make your own.

Why AeroPress?

AeroPress coffee tastes better because the ground coffee is totally immersed in the hot water, resulting in fast and extensive extraction of the flavour compounds.

The AeroPress method shortens brew time to 20 seconds or less, which avoids the unpleasant bitterness created by slower methods.

As well, the acid level of AeroPress brew is much less than conventional methods, due to the shorter brew time. In fact, laboratory testing measured AeroPress coffee as having under one fifth of the acid generated by regular drip coffee makers.

The end result? Coffee lovers are delighted by the fact that AeroPress brew is more friendly to their stomachs.

SMOOTHEST
Using the ideal water temperature and gentle air pressure brewing yields rich flavor with lower acidity and without bitterness.

RICHEST
Total immersion brewing results in uniform extraction of the ultimate in full coffee flavor.

PUREST
Micro filtered for grit free coffee – unlike other press-type coffee makers.

FASTEST
One minute from start to enjoy. The actual press time takes only 20 seconds.

SAFEST
The AeroPress is made completely from translucent copolyester, and contains no BPA or pthlalates.

  • Picking: unripes, too big, too small, ears.
  • Sieving: using sowden softbrew filter, banging and shaking it to get rid if the superfines. You can also lose some of the chaff this way.
  • 30 second soft bloom, at 82c, wet all the grounds nice and even, shake lightly around if not arounds 40gr water.
  • 1 minute extremely slow pour, 230gr water, at 76c 30 second soft plunge.
  • Extra Rimini beach version: plunge in a superchilled container, on ice if possible.
  • Leave enough slurry in the aeropress, about 50gr.

Jeff added that he preferred bolder coffee and that with this coffee he originally had his recipe at 86 bloom/ 82 pour. We calculated with the weather, humidity and bean temp before grinding that shaving 5c degrees would correct the extraction.
