About this method
One of the more unusual methods for making awesome coffee, it has become a fan favourite throughout the world for its easy to use style, portability and being super easy to clean. There's even a world championship dedicated to using it!
What we love about this method is the combination of the infusion style brewing similar to the plunger, which gives a great body to the coffee, but then also uses a paper filter once your ready to give you the smooth cleanliness of a pourover.
There are a couple of different ways to brew with this, we are going to show you the easy, traditional method that never fails to deliver.
What you'll need:
15g filter grind coffee
Aeropress filter paper
The Max Method
Place the filter paper into the filter paper holder and lock into the body of the brewer. Wet the filter paper with hot water to remove the papery taste.
Place your favourite mug on a set of kitchen scales and then put the main part of the brewer on the mug (with the filter part facing down).
Add 15g coffee and then zero the scales.
Start your timer and add 30ml of hot water (off the boil) onto the coffee and stir. Wait 30 seconds. This will allow the coffee to absorb the water.
Add the remaining 220ml of water and attach the plunger part to the top of the brew. Don't press down just yet!
Remove the equipment from your scales and wait for 2 minutes...
When ready, begin to slowly push downwards on the plunger until all the coffee has been pushed through the filter. You will hear a hiss once this has been completed. Enjoy!
