The AeroPress ® coffee maker is one of our favorite methods for brewing specialty coffee at home by combining simplicity with the ability to produce a great cup of coffee.
So much so, that we have been organizing its fun regional Andalucia AeroPress ® Championship for several years at Ineffable Coffee, where year after year the best baristas and coffee enthusiasts in Andalucia compete.
But it does not take a barista champion to prepare a good coffee with the AeroPress ®, its versatility and simplicity allow us to make a balanced and sweet cup of coffee by just following some simple guidelines. It allows us to extract different characteristics of a good specialty coffee simply by changing some parameters such as water temperature, grind size, infusion time or the ratio of water to ground coffee.
Overall, the AeroPress ® is a great tool for improving your coffee brewing skills and it is light and compact, making it the ideal travel companion. If you need some guidance to get started, try this simple recipe and keep on experimenting.
