Aeropress Brewing technique
Traditional: In the traditional method, the press is popped on top of a cup, grounds and water added, and stirred. The coffee begins to drip into the cup immediately, along the same lines as a filter coffee machine, and then pressure is added to force the rest of the water through the grounds, as with espresso.
Inverted: In the inverted method, the whole apparatus is turned on its head, and grounds and water are added to the mixing chamber, with no drip-through. These are stirred for a few seconds for pre-infusion then, with a cup on the top, the entire thing is flipped over, and pressure is applied to force the water through the grounds.
The perfect brew: The same rules apply to AeroPress coffee as it does to filter and espresso: the water to ground coffee ratio changes according to what kind of coffee you like. Two scoops will make a double espresso or 1 Americano, depending on the amount of water you add. Pour water up to the 2 mark, then stir. If you're making Americanos (or have used more grounds for more coffees), then add more water.
