Aeropress Fun at the Office

A couple of weeks ago we received Able Brewing’s DISK Fine in the mail. It’s been getting some good use around here lately, so today we’re sharing one of our favorite brew methods.  Here’s what you’ll do:

1.  Find a coffee that you love. We can’t get enough of the Gorbicho Rogicha Ethiopia, so it’s what we’re using today.

2.  Grab your Aeropress, water kettle, timer and 12g of coffee (freshly ground a couple steps finer than drip).  Feel free to up dose this a little too — we’ve used up to around 15 grams with success, depending on grind).

3.  Place your Aeropress on top of your favorite mug and fill with 200 grams of water (around the 3.5 area, by the aeropress numbers) Stir to incorporate.

4.  Let sit for a minute and a half

6.  Plunge it all down in about 20 seconds.

7.  Enjoy.

    For those of us without scales, about how much is 12g?

      Hey Diana: This is a tough one. Different coffees and roasts have varying bean densities, so it’s difficult to say how much 12 grams is in terms of number of beans used or measured in another way. Luckily, scales are pretty cheap ($27.95 on our site, but you can find them cheaper). They definitely are a super helpful tool for making the great coffee at home. Hope that helps!

    Followed these instructions pretty closely and ended up with about a ten ounce brew…. 12g is a little low for that much water. Tastes a bit thin. Thoughts?

      Sorry about that — some confusion on this end. We made some updates to hopefully clear things up a little; see above. And you may still want to up-dose it a little or go a little finer on that grind, depending on your taste preference. Thank you for your comment, and let us know how it works out for you.

      Shoot me an email at, and I’ll send you a little coffee for catching this. Thanks!
