Stuff I Learned This Year Aeropress Coffee Making Edition
While I was getting my place painted, Scott and I stayed at his place. But Scott didn’t have a coffee maker – he only had an Aeropress. And thus I had to learn how to use it!
It was actually pretty simple, but hey, it’s a new thing I learned this year, so it totally counts!
Here’s all the stuff you use:
First, you need to put the little filter in this circle thingy (which you’ve put on top of a cup) and wet the filter with hot water:
Then you put the coffee grounds into the tube thingy, which you’ve put on top of the circle thingy:
Then you fill it with boiling water and stir.
Let it sit for a few minutes, and then press the plunger down to make the coffee come out:
If it’s too strong, you can put some more water in it (sort of like an Americano).
And viola, you have coffee!
Personally, I prefer to just use my drop coffeemaker, but this thing is useful when you don’t have a coffeemaker with you!
