Inverted AeroPress Guide

What You Need:

  • Aeropress
  • AeroPress filters
  • Fine to Medium Coarse Ground Coffee Beans
  • Good quality water (Filtered)
  • Coffee to Water Ratio 1:14

Example: 15g coffee to 210ml water


Step 1: Prepare Your Equipment

  • Assemble the Aeropress upside down, with the plunger at the bottom.
  • Place a filter in the filter cap and attach it to the Aeropress.

Step 2: Rinse the Filter

  • Pour hot water through the filter to wet it and preheat the Aeropress. Discard the rinse water.

Step 3: Add Coffee

  • Add finely ground coffee to the Aeropress. Give it a gentle shake to level the coffee bed.

Step 4: The Bloom

  • Start the brewing process by pouring a small amount of hot water over the coffee grounds, ensuring they're evenly saturated. Allow the coffee to bloom for about 30 seconds.

Step 5: Continue Pouring

  • Slowly pour the remaining hot water over the coffee grounds, ensuring even saturation.

Step 6: Stir and Cap

  • Give the coffee a gentle stir to ensure even extraction.
  • Attach the cap to the Aeropress, making sure it's tightly sealed.

Step 7: Steep Time

  • Allow the coffee to steep for about 1-2 minutes, adjusting the time based on your taste preferences.

Step 8: Flip and Press

  • Carefully flip the Aeropress onto your favorite mug.
  • Press down slowly on the plunger until you hear a hissing sound. This indicates that the brewing is complete.

Step 9: Dilute (Optional)

  • If desired, dilute the coffee with hot water to achieve your preferred strength.

Step 10: Enjoy!

  • Whether you prefer it black or with added milk and sugar, your inverted Aeropress coffee is ready to be savored.

Optional Steps:

  • Experiment with different grind sizes and coffee-to-water ratios to find your perfect brew.
  • Adjust steeping time for a bolder or milder flavor.


  • Use freshly ground coffee for the best results.
  • Maintain water temperature between 195-205Β°F (90-96Β°C).
  • Clean the Aeropress thoroughly after each use to preserve flavors.
