In this video, follow along with Bethany as she uses a Sette 270Wi to brew a AeroPress. You can also find the Sette AeroPress Holder in our gear shop.
The AeroPress is almost two decades (!) old and has gained cult-like status in the specialty coffee community. From global competitions to innovative techniques, the AeroPress is a versatile and exciting brewing method that offers a little something for everyone. From fruity and complex flavors to classic chocolatey profiles, the AeroPress can do it all! Originally invented by a scientist searching for the perfect coffee at home, this method has evolved into one of the most beloved styles of brewing in the coffee community.
- Coffee: 18g (1:15 ratio of coffee to water)
- Water: 270g at 200F
- Total Brew Time: ~2 mins
- Boil water in your kettle to 200ºF or 93ºC. You can adjust the temperature from here depending on your roast and desired outcome.
- Set your grinder to the medium fine range at 19C on the Sette 270Wi or as referenced in the chart above.
- Install paper filter, connect the filter to the press, place over a brewing vessel, and preheat your press/filter/vessel with hot water. Discard excess water after preheating.
- Add your coffee to the brewer and shake to level the coffee bed.
- Tare your scale with your brewer and vessel on top, and start your timer as you begin your first pour.
- Pour in concentric circles for 30 seconds, until you reach 270 grams.
- Stir with a paddle or spoon 3 times, then insert your plunger at an angle until flush at the level of your brewing mixture. Pull up slightly on the plunger to create a seal and stop any drips.
- At 1 minute and 30 seconds, begin to slowly plunge, until you hear a slight hissing noise. It’s best to stop right at the beginning of the hissing.
- Total brew time should be around 2 minutes. Remember that our recommendations are only suggestions, and you can change this recipe to suit your own preferences!
- Swirl your coffee to fully incorporate, breathe in those wonderful aromas, serve & enjoy!
