Reunion Island Coffee and Aeropresses will be available at the HomeGrown pop up in Toronto. These bad boys deliver amazing coffee and are ideal for camping trips.

Ideal for coffees with good balance, but leaning more towards sweeter roasts. High-grown Central/South American coffees are a good bet—Colombia Las Hermosas or Guatemala La Soledad.

  1. Make sure your Aeropress is clean and free of residue.
  2. Place the plunger inside the brew tube and leave the Aeropress upside down.
  3. Rinse the paper filter, black plastic filter and tube with hot water to heat everything up.
  4. Grind your fresh whole bean coffee (1 gram of coffee for every 17 mL of water) and pour the grounds into the upside down tube.
  5. Boil fresh, cold water. Wait for it to cool a bit and then begin pouring the water over the coffee. Start with just enough water to saturate the coffee grounds and stir to ensure there is no dry coffee left.
  6. Immediately begin to slowly pour the remaining water and fill to about an inch below the top of the Aeropress. Give it one more stir, then let it sit for 2 more minutes.
  7. Place the metal filter with the paper filter inside onto the Aeropress.
  8. Plunge at a steady, slow rate until all of the coffee is in the mug.
  9. Enjoy! If the coffee is too strong, don’t feel bad about diluting it a bit to taste with some hot water from your kettle.
