AeroPress Cold Brew
Why Make Cold Brew With The Aeropress?
That's a rhetorical question. Why wouldn't you make cold brew with the AeroPress!? Alan Adler's wunderkind brewer can cut cold brew's time down from 10 hours (at the very least) to one minute. If you don't think that's incredible, get out of my face. Fine grounds, unrelenting agitation, and pressure come together to defy the laws of physics. Cold brewing in the AeroPress delivers a cup shockingly like traditional cold brew, only 600% faster. The AeroPress was designed for speed, and this is just about the fastest thing it can (currently) do, so let's get to it!
We recommend measuring by weight instead of volume for the most accurate brew ratio.
22g (2 ½ tbsp)
135g (5 oz.)
1 - 2 mins.
- 22g fine-ground coffee
- AeroPress Original
- 135g water, cold or room temperature
- Grind 22g coffee to a medium-fine consistency.
- Place micro-filter in filter cap and attach it to the brew chamber. Rinse with hot water to remove paper taste.
- Place your AeroPress on a sturdy mug with ice in it. Very sturdy, like this one.
- Add your coffee, level the bed, tare the scale, and saturate with 135g water.
- Set a minute timer and stir vigorously the entire time.
- Once the minute's up, plunge over ice, dress it how you like, and enjoy.
