For those of you wanting to get creative, you can always try the inverted Aeropress. Many swear by this method and believe the taste is greatly improved. The jury’s still out for us on whether it improves the taste, but we invite you to make your own mind up!
Inverted Aeropress Method
- Boil your kettle and leave the water to sit for approx. 2mins. Pour some of the water into your mug to warm it.
- Measure out between 15 – 17g of freshly roasted Bora coffee beans. If you don’t have a scale, fill the Aeorpress scoop (provided) and level it out.
- Grind your coffee beans. We recommend a medium grind. All grinders vary so please check your settings.
- Add the tip of the plunger into the Aeropress and turn it upside down (hence inverted) and stand it up on a flat surface.
- Place a filter paper into the cap and screw onto the Aeropress chamber and add a splash of water onto the paper.
- Add your freshly ground coffee beans and level out. Slowly pour the boiled water on top of the coffee.
- Stir the coffee using the stirrer provided for about 10 seconds.
- Screw the cap onto the top of the chamber and let it steep for about 90 seconds.
- Empty the water from the mug and place your mug upside down on top of the Aeropress.
- Flip the whole apparatus upside down in one fluent motion – but be careful!
- Slowly push down on the plunger as normal until you hear the hiss.
- Remove the Aeropress from the top of your mug and enjoy your brew!
- To dispose of the coffee grinds, simply twist the Aerporess cap and remover and then push the plunger. Recycle your grinds in the garden if you can!
