Things to Do Prior To Brewing with the Aeropress Go Coffee Maker
Ensure sure your AeroPress Go is clean and completely dry before using.
It is recommended starting with whole bean coffee and grinding with a burr grinder before brewing for best results.
Try not to grind the coffee too early, as it may quickly lose many of the amazing attributes that give it it’s full flavour.
Using a scale alleviates the guesswork and really makes brewing easier, by eliminating any variables that could result in a bad brew.
Selecting The Grind Coarseness
The grind coarseness is very important for all different types of coffee beans.
Aeropress Go grind is in-between espresso (Fine) and French press (Coarse).
Adjusting your settings on your hand grinder to perfect your grind may take a little trial and error.
But the results will be a smooth, rich and pure coffee that will blow you away!
How To Use A AeroPress Go Coffee Maker – Steps to Success
Heat your water to 100 degrees Celcius, bringing it to the boil and then sitting for 60 seconds.
Put the filter in the cap and rinse both with hot water for 5 seconds. This helps seal the filter inside the cap and eliminates any paper taste.
Empty the water used to rinse.
Weigh the whole bean coffee and grind it on a finer setting than medium.
If you choose to use pre-ground coffee, go to Step 4.
Step 4 of How To Use A Aeropress Go.
Assemble your AeroPress in the “inverted” position with the cap off. This will help keep the coffee from leaking through the filter before it’s ready.
Gently shake your ground coffee in the AeroPress chamber to settle the grounds.
Time (minutes) 0:00-0:45
Start your timer and pour half the water evenly over the grounds.
To make it Bloom, let it sit until 45 seconds has expired.
This forces the hot water to enable the coffee to release trapped gases, expanding the coffee bed, causing it to bubble on top, and sending out delisious aromas..
Time (minutes) 00:45 – 1:00
Pour in remainder of the hot water until the scale reads 240 grams.
Time (minutes) 1:00 – 1:30
Gentley stir for 5 Seconds.
Now you can securely attach the cap (with filter) to the top of the chamber.
Time (minutes) 1:30 – 1:40
When the timer reaches 1:30, flip the whole AeroPess over with care and place it on top of your mug.
If you are brewing for the first time, it is advised to practice this flipping motion with water inside the chamber to get the used to the motion.
You don’t want to spill it and ruin your precious drop.
After some practise you will quickly discover a smooth quick action that feels right.
Time (minutes) 1:40 – 2:00
Press the plunger down gently and steadily for 20 seconds.
Once you hear a hissing sound – (The air escaping from the chamber)
Remove the cap and discard the grounds and filter.
Step 10 – Clean up Mess!
It is super simple to clean the AeroPress and assosiated parts.
It only takes a few seconds.
Remove the cap and disk, push out the used grounds by pressing the plunger all the way in, then rinse off the disk.
Make sure it is completely clean with no old grounds left in the chamber. If grounds still exist, you can use a soft bristled brush to remove them.
The brewing chamber has already been cleaned by the plunger, the only thing to do is rinse the coffee off the end.
Now just wipe it with a clean dry towel and you’re finished!
