Make Espresso At Home | AeroPress

We’ve shared some of the most popular and classic brewing tools, such as the French Press and the Pour Over. But did you know there is a way to enjoy coffee that is so new it wasn’t even around in the 1990’s? Not to mention, it can actually produce a coffee that is reminiscent of espresso with the method we outline below!


The tool? The AeroPress!

The Process:
  • Weigh out 17-21 grams of ground coffee
  • Bring 200 grams of water to a boil
