If you have ever looked into trying to find the best way to make coffee when you are on holiday, camping or just have no access to complicated equipment.
We have a big roundup of the best ways to make coffee when you are on-the-go or away from home and need something portable, but the standout (and bestseller) will always be the Aeropress.
It revolutionised the way we make coffee when away from home – and can also be used at home to make a coffee in under one minute – but how on earth do you use it?
First of all, there are a couple of things you need.
You will need to use already hot water if you want a normal warm coffee. There is no way to warm it up unless done once made over a campfire. But you can use a flask of warm water, or heat it separately.
Cold water can be used if you’re not too bothered about the actual temperature, but want the caffeine kick (or if you’re making cold brew).
The Aeropress also sits over a cup, so when you use the plunger, it pours straight into the mug. Then of course, you will need to add milk and sugar to the cup if this is how you drink your coffee, as you can’t add them to the Aeropress.
Thankfully, they are easy to use and take no effort at all.
For an espresso, drink as it is.
If you are drinking an Americano, top up with water for a 237ml mug.
For latte drinks, instead top with milk.
If making a long iced cold brew coffee, top up with tap or iced water to 237ml.
