Aeropress Inverted


To get started, you'll need the following:


- Aeropress

- Aeropress paper filter

- Freshly roasted coffee beans

- Kettle

- Digital scale

- Timer

- Gooseneck pouring kettle (optional but recommended)


  1. Grind 15 grams of the coffee to a medium-coarse consistency, similar to sea salt.


2. Stand the Aeropress upside down (inverted) so that the plunger is facing upward.

3. Add the ground coffee into the inverted Aeropress.


4. Start a timer and pour just enough hot water (about 50 ml or grams) to saturate the coffee grounds. Stir gently to ensure even saturation.


5.1 Allow the coffee to bloom for about 30 seconds. During this time, the coffee will release gases, and you'll see it expand.
5.2 After the bloom, pour the remaining hot water (175 ml or grams) into the Aeropress. Be sure to pour slowly and steadily, maintaining a controlled pour.
5.3 Give the coffee and water mixture a gentle stir to ensure all the grounds are well saturated.
  1. Rinse the Filter paper and attach the filter cap (with a filter) to the Aeropress but do not press yet.


7. Let the coffee steep for about 1 minute and 30 seconds.


8.1 Carefully place your mug or carafe upside down on top of the Aeropress.

8.2 Holding both the Aeropress and the mug, quickly flip the whole setup so that the Aeropress is now on top.

8.3 Press down gently and steadily on the Aeropress, using about 20-30 seconds to complete the press. Apply gentle pressure to avoid over-extraction.

8.4 Once you hear a hissing sound, indicating that the press is complete, stop pressing.
