AeroPress with fruit filter

Category: Experimental
Creator: Caleb Stultz Visit

Caleb shared this video on his instagram, using a slice of orange as a filter in the AeroPress.

We've seen a few fruit filter AeroPress recipes over time, but this one is easy to follow and it makes sense.

Caleb adds fruit to the serving vessel as well as making a fruit filter from a slice of orange and adding it above the paper filter in the AeroPress.

Remember to cut the orange peel off before you add it to the filter - it will fit better this way, and may also prevent some bitterness coming through from the orange peel.

Feel free to get creative with this AeroPress recipe - experiment with different types of fruit to see what works best; you could also add some ice to your vessel for a great summer coffee refresher.
