The AeroPress Flat White

This flat white recipe is based on the article posted by European Coffee Trip on How To Make Flat White At Home (Using The AeroPress). It is a super quick and easy method to get a great flat white without an espresso machine.

For the milk part Eric, who shared this recipe, uses a small french press for frothing in this recipe. You can use a flask if you don't have a french press.

When using a flask, be aware of these few things as Ales from European Coffee Trip mentioned in their blog:

The main thing is that you need to have a flask that you can fully close. I found these two small insulated flasks at home that were ideal. You shouldn’t fill the flask over halfway, because you need to leave some space inside for proper shaking, and also to accommodate the pressure building up inside of the flask. If it is too hot, you can use a kitchen towel to protect your hands.

Thanks Eric for submitting this recipe to AeroPrecipe!

Paper Filter


African natural process


93°C / 199°F
  1. Finely grind 14 grams of freshly roasted coffee (to the same grind size as you would use for an espresso).
  2. Put the AeroPress in a regular position, add 70 grams of 93°C water and stir for about 20 seconds.
  3. Then slowly press it down. You should have about 50 grams of strong coffee in your cup, ready to be diluted with milk.
  4. Add 100 ml of quality full fat milk heated to 60°C. I use a small French press to froth the milk.
