Any self-respecting individual would consider coffee to be one of life's most affordable luxuries. Brew a fresh cup as the sun rises during an outdoor adventure and you've pretty much entered the gateways of paradise.




Porlex-Mini hand grinder   //   Aeropress coffee maker   //   Gooseneck kettle   //   Gas stove   //   Coffee scale   //   Stirring spoon   //   Cup   //   Thermometer   //   Light-medium roasted, single-origin coffee beans (17g)




Step 1.

Hand-grind beans to a similar

coarseness to table salt.

Step 2.

Boil water with

the gooseneck kettle.

Step 3.

Rinse paper filter with hot water

to remove artificial flavours

of the paper.

Step 4.

Warm up the cup with hot water

(pour away before serving).

Step 5.

Invert Aeropress coffee maker

(filter cap remains removed).

Step 6.

With the plunger pulled to its

maximum position, pour coffee grounds

into the brewing chamber.




Step 1.

Allow boiled water to cool

to 92 degrees celsius.

Step 2.

Using the gooseneck kettle, pour water

in a gentle circular motion into the brewing

chamber. Stop once coffee level reaches the

midpoint of the brewing chamber.

Step 3.

Let coffee grounds pre-infuse for

30 seconds. This should create a bloom

on the surface of the coffee.

Step 4.

Use a spoon to gently stir the bloom

downwards before adding more water until it

reaches the brim of the brewing chamber.

Step 5.

Steep for an additional 30 seconds.

Step 6.

At the one-minute mark, give the coffee

a final stir before fastening the filter cap

onto the Aeropress. This creates a sealed

chamber for coffee extraction, using

pressure and hot water.





Step 1.

Place an inverted cup over the filter cap.

Step 2.

Carefully flip the entire contraption

the right way round. Ensure that the cup

is placed on an even surface.

Step 3.

For the next 15 seconds, push the

plunger consistently downwards for final

extraction of coffee. Stop just before the

contraption hisses.




Allow the coffee to cool for four minutes.

Your coffee is ready to be served.
