Tare your scale, start you time and the hot water to the coffee.
After 60 seconds stir four times.
Put the filter cap on, flip the aeropress and place on the pitcher.

Here, hot water and coffee sit together in a chamber for a certain period before being separated, possibly by a filter. Popular methods here are the French Press, Aeropress, and cupping. Here we would recommend a slightly higher starting ratio of approximately 75 g of dry coffee per litre of water. Here you are in control of both contact time and grind size, so either start with a finer grind and a shorter contact time of approximately 1 minute, popular with Aeropress, or a coarser grind and a longer contact time, around 4 minutes, popular with French Press and cupping. Either combination, and anything in between, can yield clean and balanced results, and can often show off slightly different facets of a coffee’s character, so experimenting is recommended.
