  1. Weight the coffee beans, spray them with water to reduce static in the grinder, and grind the coffee.
  2. Tare the scales with inverted Aeropress brewer on top of it.
  3. Place the grounds inside the brewer, start a timer, and pour 97 grams of water onto the brewer.
  4. Stir the slurry with a cupping spoon 35 times slowly and gently, doing both a circular and vertical motion with the spoon. The rotation is about 80 RPM.
  5. Wait until 1:20, and then gently remove excess space on the brewer by pulling the body down, and put the cap on.
  6. Start pressing into a server at 1:40, going gently and steadily so that it is done by 2:05. The server should now have about 67 grams of beverage.
  7. Dilute the beverage with 100 grams of the same water, at the same temperature. Let it cool down for a minute or so.
  8. Enjoy!
