How to make Aeropress coffee

The Aerobie Aeropress coffee maker is a firm favourite of ours. Great for on-the-go brewing (fitting as it was made by the inventor of the frisbee). Our step-by-step guide will show you the Aeropress inverted method - for full immersion, and maximum flavour extraction.

You’ll need:

  • Medium-fine ground Pact Coffee
  • Aeropress
  • Aeropress scoop
  • Aeropress paddle
  • Aeropress filter paper
  • Kettle
  • Timer
  • Your favourite mug

Psst… We use the “inverted” method as we think it produces the best results, so don’t be alarmed if you’ve been doing it differently. Using this method allows the coffee grounds to be fully immersed in the water before brewing, making for a more consistent cup.

1. Boil a kettle, and leave it to rest for a minute

2. Insert the plunger (the inner chamber of your Aeropress) into the outer tube, so the black seal is in line with the number 4. Stand it on end, so the 4 is closest to the table

3. Using your included scoop (approximately 16g), add in your medium-fine ground Pact Coffee

4. Readying your timer, fill the tube with your off-the-boil water - so it reaches the bottom of the number 1

5. Stir five times with your paddle, and start your timer for one minute

6. Prepare your filter paper, by putting it in the filter holder and pouring hot water through to rinse it. TOP TIP: Rinsing the filter paper makes sure it doesn’t affect the flavour, so you’re only getting the delicious flavour notes of your coffee

7. Screw it onto your Aeropress

8. Once the minute has passed, place your mug upside down on top and carefully flip the whole stack

9. Carefully push the inner chamber down to brew your coffee
