Brewing coffee with an AeroPress is a great way to make a delicious cup of coffee at home. But how much coffee should you use for the perfect cup?
The amount of coffee you should use for an AeroPress depends on how strong you like your coffee, but the general rule of thumb is to use two tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounces of water. For example, if you’re making 12 ounces of coffee, you should use four tablespoons of coffee.
When it comes to the grind of your coffee, it’s important to get the right size. For an AeroPress, you should use a medium-fine grind. If your grind is too coarse, the water won’t be able to extract the full flavor of the coffee. If it’s too fine, the water won’t be able to pass through the filter.
Once you’ve got the right amount of coffee and the right grind, you’re ready to start brewing. Place the filter in the bottom of the AeroPress and add the ground coffee. Then, pour in the hot water and stir for 10-20 seconds. After stirring, place the plunger on top and press down slowly. This should take about 20-30 seconds.
When you’re done, you should have a delicious cup of coffee that’s just the right strength for you. If you find that the coffee is too weak, try adding a bit more coffee the next time you brew.
So, the next time you’re making coffee with an AeroPress, remember to use two tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounces of water and a medium-fine grind. With the right amount of coffee and the right grind, you’ll be able to make a delicious cup of coffee every time.
