This is one of our favorite recipes to use when we’re testing out some new beans in an AeroPress. It’s very easy to follow and doesn’t take a lot of equipment. Plus, the AeroPress cold brew turns out delicious!
Start by grinding your coffee on a coarse setting. A good starting point is to set your grinder slightly coarser than you would use for making French press coffee.
Put the AeroPress plunger into the brew chamber and turn the whole thing upside down. This is a cold brew version of the inverted AeroPress method.
Add 20 g of coffee to the AeroPress.
Pour 210 g of water over the grounds and stir until the coffee is evenly wet.
Put the paper filter in the filter basket and cover the AeroPress.
Wait 16 hours. Some recipes use different steeping times, but we’ve found 16 hours to be the sweet spot for us.
After 16 hours have elapsed, flip the AeroPress over and plunge the cold brew into a mason jar or other sealable container.
This recipe makes enough cold brew concentrate for two average cups of coffee. It doesn’t take any longer than your typical cold brew recipe and makes good use of the Aeropress’ built-in easy filtering system.
