AeroPress is a coffee brewing system that mainly consists of a plunger, a chamber, and a filter cap. It was invented in 2005 by Alan Adler, Aerobie’s president. AeroPress extracts coffee through air pressure, producing coffee that is similar to an espresso shot. It usually makes rich and smooth coffee with lower acidity and bitterness.

Boil 7 oz (200 g) of water. Grind 15-18 grams of coffee to a texture slightly finer than medium.
Put a paper filter into the AeroPress’ cap.
Wet the filter with hot water. This gets rid of the papery taste. Be careful as the cap is small.
Assemble your AeroPress (4.1). Set it on the weighing scale in an inverted position, and tare the weight (4.2).
Pour the ground coffee into the AeroPress.
Start the timer(6.1) and pour water(6.2) twice the weight of your coffee grounds (e.g., 32 grams of water for an 18-gram coffee), and let it sit until your timer reaches 45 seconds. Be sure that the water is 90 degrees C.
Pour the remaining water, let sit for another 30 seconds, then stir.
Fasten the cap to the top of the chamber. Carefully flip the whole AeroPress over and place it atop your mug, or brewing vessel. Then press the plunger downward until you hear the hissing sound -- it’s air escaping from the chamber, because there is no more water to push through.
You can start drinking your coffee!
Try it with Our Coffee
The Philippines is one of the few countries that produces the four species of coffee: Arabica, Liberica (Barako), Excelsa and Robusta. Climatic and soil conditions in the Philippines - from the lowland to mountain regions - make the country suitable for all four species. At Commune, we take pride in using only high quality beans, sourced directly from farmers, in various coffee-growing areas in the country like Benguet, Sagada, South Cotobato, Kapatagan and Bukidnon.
