Aeropress and Its Magic

our favourite Aeropress Go

The Aeropress looks great on any shelf, fits in any backpack and anyone can make a great cup of filter coffee with it anywhere. It’s no wonder that everyone, from baristas to travelers, loves it. If you don’t have an Aeropress yet, and you’re wondering which type to choose and what preparation method to use, we’ve got your back.

Once upon a time, Alan saved our coffee lives

The story of the Aeropress takes us back to the early 00s  to the US. It was an American engineer who decided to improve the standard methods of coffee preparation. Alan Adler introduced the world a unique way of making filtered coffee in 2005. The unbreakable, compact, and quick Aeropress soon became a favorite for anyone who, like Adler, longed for an excellent cup of coffee without excessive bitterness and acidity.

Adler utilized his expertise in aerodynamics when creating the Aeropress. After numerous experiments with different pressures and temperatures, he finally found the ideal combination that now provides millions of people worldwide with a balanced cup of coffee with lower acidity. Not long after its invention, the AeroPress Championship competition was created. Like the Aeropress itself, it gained immense popularity globally – in Ostrava itself as well. We hosted the regional round here in August last year.

This year’s regional rounds to show your best recipe are taking place at the Prima Fresh Festival at the end of June. Don’t forget to register!

WHICH TYPE OF AEROPRESS TO CHOOSE?

Since the invention of the first Aeropress, not many years have passed, but its development and new types have not waited. What are their advantages, and which one is right for you?

AeroPress OriginalThe original version, invented by Alan Adler in his garage, is perfect for daily use at home. It’s simple, fast, and mess-free. After pressing the coffee, a compact puck of coffee grounds forms inside, which you can throw away in one move. Rinse the cylinder, and voila – you’re done, cleaned up, and can enjoy your cup of coffee in peace.

AeroPress GoEven smaller, lighter, and more compact than the original. It can be folded into a small box with a lid, which also serves as a cup. The stirrer can also be folded. And the result? You can take it anywhere. It fits even into the most overcrowded backpack, and you can make great coffee while trekking in the mountains or camping in the woods.

AeroPress XLThe more, the merrier.  Are you hosting a brunch or do you want to enjoy a coffee break at work with more people? The preparation is the same, but the capacity is twice as large. If you like to share coffee with others, the XL is perfect for you.

AeroPress Clear – The newest version of the Aeropress is mainly a designer piece. The Aeropress is transparent, allowing you to watch the coffee during preparation. It’s made from Tritan; a transparent yet sturdy plastic.

HOW TO PREPARE AN AEROPRESS?

The Aeropress has two basic preparation methods: the classic and the inverted. What’s the difference?

How to classic method? – Insert a paper filter into the grid and screw it onto the Aeropress. Then place it filter-side down on a cup, add coffee, pour in water, and then use the plunger to press the coffee into the cup.

How to inverted method? – Attach the plunger right away, turn the Aeropress upside down, add coffee, pour in water, and then place the grid with the filter on top. Then flip the Aeropress and press it into the cup.

WHAT KIND OF BEANS TO CHOOSE FOR AEROPRESS?

For Aeropress preparation, choose coffee roasted for filters. Generally, it’s recommended to grind the coffee to a “medium” coarseness, similar to sand grains.

We recommend experimenting. Just as coffee varies, so do taste preferences. However, if you find a grind size you like, remember it or write it down so you can replicate it next time.

DO YOU FANCY FATHER'S AEROPRESS?

Do you want to prepare Aeropress exactly the same as we do in our roastery? Ondřej and Terka have written down their favorite recipes for you. Try both methods and see which one suits you better.


Classic Method by Ondrej

20 g coffee / 250 ml water / 3 minutes

  • Put 2 paper filters in the filter cap and rinse with water.
  • Screw the cap onto the Aeropress and place it on your favorite cup.
  • Add 20 g of ground coffee (medium-coarse like for V60).
  • Pour 70 ml of water and start the timer.
  • At 0:30, add 180 ml of water.
  • Place the plunger on the Aeropress and pull it up slightly to create a vacuum so the coffee doesn’t drip into the cup yet.
  • At 2:30, slowly press the plunger down until you hear a gentle hissing sound (ideally at 3:00-3:10).
You can also find the Aeropress Go in our e-shop.

Inverted Method by Terka

20 g coffee / 200 ml water / 3 minutes

  • Add 20 g of coffee ground roughly for V60 to the prepared Aeropress with the plunger.

  • Aeropress Go

    When Alan Adler came to the market in 2005 with a light and compact “coffee machine” and the claim that he could make espresso on it, it certainly caught the attention of every coffee lover.
    Although coffee is brewed at Aeropress under a certain pressure, it does not even hint at the pressure needed to prepare espresso. No less its simplicity, lightness and compactness make it perfect for making high quality coffee anywhere on the go.
    Aeropress Go is the younger and smaller brother of classic Aeropress. The package contains a practical mug with a lid, where you can hide all the accessories. The package also includes a handy case for paper filters, which are used to prepare a maximum of 240 ml of coffee.
