Innovative coffee fans can’t go wrong by splashing out on an Aeropress for their morning cup. These handy gadgets use a mixture of pressure & time to extract a great tasting coffee. Place a filter inside the cap, stand the Aeropress on a mug or jug, add a scoop of ground coffee per serving (15-18g), slowly pour in hot water to the desired level (the side is numbered to help you out). Next pop the plunger into the top & push downwards allowing the pressure to extract the coffee over the course of around 30 seconds. This will make a fairly strong, espresso style coffee so add hot water to taste.The ultimate coffee without fuss:
