The AeroPress is a unique device that combines


simple and long lasting brew methods. It is a
filtered, full immersion brewing method. This

would need 9 bars of pressure that extract

things.The AeroPress does however offer a
dense cup with clarity not found in a French 3
press or other full immersion brew methods.

AeroPress Techniques 2
There are multiple ways to tweak AeroPress Brewing.
We have found 3 that are the most common and taste
the best. It is up to your preference but we prefer the 1
8oz method and provide detailed steps in this guide.

We will touch on the other 2 methods:

1. Factory Method –This is the method outlined by


aerobie the AeroPress manufacturer and instructions
for this come with the AeroPress.

2. 12o z Bypass Method –This method is where


the AeroPress is brewed similar to the 8oz Inverted
Method except more coffee is used and water is
added at end of brew or to cup before AeroPress
is plunged to yield a 12oz cup.
