INSTRUCTIONS: Reverse Method Using The AeroPress

Find your favorite coffee beans, all depends on how you like your coffee. Dark and bold or on the lighter aromatic mellow side. IF you can, it is ideal to grind your beans right before you make the coffee. NOW, if you prefer not to fuss over grinding your coffee beans, please by all means, do what makes your life easier and use pre-ground coffee. IF you are planning to grind your coffee beans, find a burr grinder of your choice and budget. My favorite is the KitchenAid Burr Grinder, listed above. It has been used almost 7 days a week for the last 5 years and I have absolutely love how it still grinds excellent coffee, without any problems thus far! The other part of making coffee is how much to coffee to add. This really also depends on how strong or mild you prefer your coffee. There are other suggested measurements of coffee beans to water ratio (you can google this, if you wish). You can also use a digital scale to weigh your coffee beans (see above).

- Using a gooseneck teakettle (preferably to have better control of your water flow), add some water and bring it to boil. I say, when it starts steaming/boiling the water is ready. There are others who actually measure the temperature of the water before it is used to brew the coffee (you can google this, too).

- Add your coffee beans to your burr grinder and set it to medium coarse. I used 2 scoops of coffee beans (each scoop measures 12 grams). Once the grinding is complete, make sure to tap on the bottom of the where the coffee grinds drops to remove any excess grinds left behind (as shown in the video).

- Push your plunger of the AeroPress (with the rubber end) to the non-base part of the other cylinder of the AeroPress. Make sure only the rubber part fo the plunger is inserted into the other cylinder (as shown in the video). Make sure it is leveled when you let the two connected cylinders stand on your counter top.

- Use the AeroPress funnel to add your ground coffee beans into the AeroPress cylinder (as shown in the video). Use the coffee brush to brush in all the excess coffee grounds around the funnel and the burr grinder coffee catcher.

- With one hand holding at the base of the two connected AeroPress cylinders, slowly pour the hot water using your gooseneck teakettle, until the coffee grinds reach the brim. You'll see the coffee beans "bloom" or bubble. Let it rest for 10 seconds. Please be extra careful since you are working with very hot water.

- Using a chopstick or the AeroPress mixing stick, gently stir the coffee in the cylinder for about 5 seconds/until you see the extra space to add more water. Then add more hot water to the brim.

- Place the metal mesh filter on top, then place the black plastic filter and turn to secure it. You can use the paper filter that comes with the AeroPress. Just place the paper filter on the inside of the black plastic filter and add just a bit of hot water to wet the paper filter so it stay in place.

FOR MAKING SINGLE CUP ICED COFFEE

If you are using honey or sugar, then pour the amount to your taste preference into the cup where you'll be extracting the coffee. Honey and sugar will not dissolve well in iced liquid so it is better to dissolve it in the hot extracted coffee. IF you using simple syrup or other syrups, you can add it later when the coffee is iced.

- Using two hands to hold the two connected AeroPress cylinders, flip it over so the black filter is now resting on the brim of the cup where you'll be extracting the coffee. Wait another 60 seconds. (All in, from the time you start pouring the hot water into the two connected cylinders, to when you start plunging/pressing down to extract the coffee, should be 2 minutes.)

- One hand is holding the base of the AeroPress where it is resting on the brim of the cup, and the other hand is now slowly pressing down on the top cylinder/plunger. Press down slowly, giving yourself 15-25 seconds. The last 1/4 of the press will require more pressure and you'll hear the hissing sounds of the coffee grinds being pressed to the max. Once the hissing sound stops, let it rest for 5 seconds, then remove the AeroPress.

- Get a tall glass filled with ice to the brim.

- Stir your honey or sugar that is at the bottom of the glass.

- Slowly pour the hot coffee into the glass filled with ice. Then pour it back to the other glass and repeat the process 3 - 5 times.

- Serve your iced coffee in the chilled tall glass with ice. Enjoy it black or add your milk/heavy cream of your choice and enjoy! Do enjoy it with Korean Yak Gwa cookies. These are traditional Korean cookies and it is as old-school as it gets when it comes to Korean cookies. You can find these are any Korean markets or on Amazon.com (please see above).

FOR MAKING SINGLE CUP HOT COFFEE

- Preheat your coffee mug with hot water. Pour the hot water about 2/3 and wait 5 seconds. Pour the water back in the kettle. Return the kettle back on your stove and make sure it is set at low-medium setting so the hot water remains hot.

- Using two hands to hold the two connected AeroPress cylinders, flip it over so the black filter is now resting on the brim of the mug where you'll be extracting the coffee. Wait another 60 seconds. (All in, from the time you start pouring the hot water into the two connected cylinders, to when you start plunging/pressing down to extract the coffee, should be 2 minutes.)

- One hand is holding the base of the AeroPress where it is resting on the brim of the cup, and the other hand is now slowly pressing down on the top cylinder/plunger. Press down slowly, giving yourself 15-25 seconds. The last 1/4 of the press will require more pressure and you'll hear the hissing sounds of the coffee grinds being pressed to the max. Once the hissing sound stops, let it rest for 5 seconds, then remove the AeroPress.

- Pour the water into the mug, according to how strong or mild you prefer your coffee.

- Enjoy it black or add your milk/heavy cream of your choice and enjoy!

- Take your Korean Yak Gwa cookie and dip it in your hot coffee, sort of how you would with biscotti cookies. These are traditional Korean cookies and it is as old-school as it gets when it comes to Korean cookies. You can find these are any Korean markets or on Amazon.com (please see above).

HOW TO CLEAN THE AEROPRESS

This is my way of cleaning the AeroPress. (You can follow the AeroPress instruction manual on how to clean the AeroPress.) As soon as I'm done with extracting the coffee, I twist to remove the black plastic filter. I remove the metal mesh filter and rinse it under running water and let it air dry. If you are using the paper filter, it will remain intact on the compressed coffee. I bring the AeroPress over to my compost and just push the plunger all the way until all the compressed coffee falls off. I take a paper towel and wipe off any excess/remaining coffee grind and set it aside until next use. OR sometimes, I rinse it lightly under running water and let it air dry. Clean up is much quicker and easier than the big old coffee machine or the french press, in my opinion...:-)
