Simple Inverted

Creator: Calvin

I developed this recipe to fix a lot of the frustrations I have with most AeroPress recipes.

This one is easy to remember, hard to screw up, and includes a great trick to prevent channeling while pressing.

You can preheat the AeroPress if you want, but it's not strictly necessary.

Paper Filter


Anything that isn't dark.


100°C / 212°F
  1. Start boiling your kettle.
  2. Place Aeropress in inverted position. You can push the plunger into the middle of the 4.
  3. Grind 15g of coffee just finer than you would for a small v60, then add to the aeropress
  4. When your kettle has boiled, immediately pour all 200g of water into the aeropress. Don't let it cool.
  5. Stir three times and let it steep until 1:00.
  6. At 1:00, stir 3 more times, scraping off any coffee stuck on the plunger.
  7. Press all the excess air out of the chamber and flip the aeoropress onto your cup.
  8. Lift up the aeropress an inch or two, and drop it back onto the cup to collapse any potential channels.
  9. Press slowly, taking about 30 seconds.
  10. Drink end enjoy.
