AeroPress brewing guide

Using the AeroPress, you can make delicious coffee quickly and easily, even on the go! There are hundreds of recipes for this practical device - so many that it is probably even rarer to use the original recipe recommended by the manufacturer. Our recommendation sticks very close to the original.

The SLURP AeroPress recipe:

Brewing time: ~2:00 min
Final quantity of coffee: ~2 dl
Grinding: fine - medium. Finer than for regular filter coffee. The ratio of coffee to water: 14g coffee, 200g water

  1. Rinse the round filter paper briefly with hot water to wash out its own flavour. Then insert the filter paper into the filter.
  2. Place the brewing cylinder (filter is at the bottom) on your coffee mug and pour in the freshly ground coffee. Shake the AeroPress gently to distribute the coffee evenly.
  3. Pour 200 g of water into the AeroPress and stir gently to bring the coffee evenly into contact with the water. The ideal water temperature is about 90 °C.
  4. Place the plunger in the brewing cylinder to create a suction that prevents the coffee from dripping. Let your coffee brew for one minute.
  5. Remove the plunger and stir a few times. This should be done approximately between minute 1:05-1:20.
  6. Put the plunger back into the brewing cylinder and press it down evenly and in a relaxed manner for about 30 seconds.
  7. The complete brewing time should be between 1:45-1:55 minutes depending on the coarseness of your grind.


  • You can adjust the ratio of coffee to water as well as the grinding to suit your liking.
  • You can achieve stronger coffee, if you grind the coffee finer and/or use less water.
  • It's better to rinse the AeroPress with hot water right after use.
