2 Ways To Make Cold-Brew With an AeroPress

I love my AeroPress and lately I’ve been getting in the habit of an early afternoon cold brew.

Cold Brew Drip/Gravity Method (6-8 hours)

If I’m working from home, I’ll use this method in the morning with a second AeroPress so I can still brew my typical 2-3 cups of morning coffee.

Prepare the AeroPress as usual with a filter and screw on to the cylinder. Use 20g of espresso grind coffee, and firmly tamp in the AeroPress. Add a second filter on top of the grounds and firmly tamp down again. Fill the cylinder with ice cubs and leave on the counter to let gravity do its work.

The resulting cup of coffee is very strong.

The Allen Adler Method of Cold Brew

Prepare the AeroPress as usual with a filter and screw on to the cylinder. Use 15g of very fine filter or espresso grind coffee. Using room temperature water and fill to the 1 mark (60-70ml), just over 2oz. Stir the coffee for 60 seconds. Press the AeroPress through.

Dilute with ice water or ice cubes depending upon preferred strength.
