Inverted Aeropress Brewing Guides

This inverted Aeropress method brews a smooth filter coffee.

What you’ll need:

  • Aeropress
  • Aeropress filter
  • 17g coffee (approximately 8.5 teaspoons) in AeroPress grind
  • Tablespoon
  • Cup
  • 230ml water (1.5 tablespoon less than 1 cup) at 90°C (5:30 minutes off boil)
  • Kettle
  • Scales, if possible, otherwise follow eye measurements 

Brewing recipe:

  • Using your Aeropress the inverted way, pre-wet filter paper in the filter basket.
  • Add 17g coffee. 
  • Start timer and add 80ml of 90℃ water.
  • Stir a few times to wet all the grinds and leave for 20 seconds.
  • Add 70ml more of 90℃ water and stir vigorously 20 times.
  • Screw on the filter cap and leave until the timer is at 1 minute.
  • At 1 minute, flip Aeropress onto the cup, and slowly press over 1 minute.
  • Top up with 80ml hot water. 

Pro tips:

  • The Aeropress method typically uses much lower brew temperatures. This is because of the immense pressure used to extract the flavors as opposed to other brew methods.
  • Slow pressing is key to using the pressure correctly, and to avoid an unclean cup!
  • Bloom or (pre-infusion) is always important to take out sourness. Blooming is when you pour a little water to wet your coffee grinds, wait a few seconds, and then start to pour the rest of the water. You will see small bubbles appear during the blooming process which is carbon dioxide being released. This process helps eliminate carbon dioxide present in your freshly roasted coffee, allowing the remaining water to absorb more flavours from the coffee.
