Thick & Clean

My first shots with Prismo were a bit too bitter and sludgy. After a few tweaks, I came with a clean and thick cup.

I use a medium-dark roast, so the aromatic profile is closer to cocoa, with relatively low acidity. You can try medium and light roasts for a zesty shot!

P.S: You'll need to use the Fellow Prismo metal filter AND the Aeropress paper filter for this recipe.

Recipe details:

Paper Filter


Washed/Medium-Dark Roast


98°C / 208°F
  1. Set your AeroPress standard and wet a paper filter over the Fellow Prismo with hot water.
  2. Set your water temperature at 98 celsius degrees.
  3. Put the coffee in the plunger and pour over 20 grams of water, stir gently for 10 seconds.
  4. Let bloom for 20 seconds. Preheat your cup while your coffee bed is blooming.
  5. Fill up with the remaining amount of water and stir gently for 10 seconds again.
  6. Wait 20 seconds and place the handle on top of the AeroPress.
  7. Press the contents into your preheated cup by using your body weight.
  8. Swirl your cup a bit and let it rest for 30 seconds at least. You're basically using boiling water and a preheated cup, so you'll need to rest it a bit depending on your room temperature.
  9. Enjoy!
