Hi everyone this is Tim from Hiitworkouts.tv.
Thanks for tuning in again. Today we’re going to be talking about the Aeropress coffee.
For those of you that don’t know what Aeropress coffee is. It’s a lot like a french press.
So, the only difference is that it’s a lot cleaner. You don’t get grounds in your coffee.
That sort of thing. But the taste of the coffee is excellent. And anybody who is a coffee
lover like myself, I highly recommend you invest in one of these. The unit comes with
several pieces. And if you follow the instructions they give you. You have these two units here
that connect. And I use what is called the inverted method. So what you do is you take
the two pieces…and you connect so that it creates a seal. Now, with my Aeropress coffee,
I just use a traditional breakfast blend type of coffee. I’ve experimented with Starbucks.
I’ve experimented with Seattles Best. I’ve tried some of the other gourmet coffees. I
really haven’t noticed that big of a difference. I know there’s a lot of coffee snobs out there.
I don’t mean to offend you. But from a purley economic point of view, I’ve been able to
make an excellent cup of coffee just with a traditional blend. So, I’m going to go ahead
and put in two scoops of my ground coffee. Now I do prefer a darker roast of coffee.
Alright. Once you’ve got the two scoops in there I simply need to add some hot water.
Now you can boil some water on the stove or in this case I just got a cup of hot water
that I put in the microwave. So I’m just going to fill this close to the top. About like
that. You want to leave just a little bit of space in there. Now, another thing is your
Aeropress coffee is going to come with paper filters. And what I found was this little
do hickey on Amazon. For the life of me I can’t remember who makes this but I will post
a link to this so that you can order this. It’s just a metal filter. And you can’t tell,
probably, by looking but there’s several tiny little holes inside this and it’s reusable.
So you don’t have to worry about buyin more filters. This filter will last forever. The
drawback is you have to clean it which to me has never been an issue. It’s very simple.
It’s very straight forward. It’s very quick. Love this. Plus, in my opinion, it improves
the flavor of the coffee. So what you do is you take the filter and you place it in this
cap. And then this just screws on top. Like so. Actually, I forgot one step. We need to
stir this puppy. So, you have the stirrer that come with it. you just want to give that
a nice stir. Make sure everything is evenly distributed. And now we’ll put our cap on.
Ok, so at this point, it’s just a matter of waiting. We’re going to wait approximately
three minutes and we’ll be ready to press this. We’ll be right back. Ok, so after three
minutes, we’re ready to press the coffee and we will use this funnel device that comes
with the Aeropress coffess maker. You’re going to put this in the cup. And what you’re going
to do is take your cylinder and you’re going to flip it up side down to fix inside of this
strainer. Once you have it up side down, you’re going to kind of place your hand here to brace.
And you’re going to lightly press down. You want to press down enough to create a little
bit of force but you want to go really slow.Going slower is going to preserve a lot of the flavor
in the coffee and you’re going to be a much richer taste of coffee in the end. OK, can
you hear that? There’s a hissing noise. This is the point where, we basically need to stop.
I’ll let it go just a little bit further and then we’re done. I hipe you enjoyed this tutorial.
It’s a great flavor of coffee. Thanks again and subscribe to our youtube channel Thanks
