How many filter papers come with the AeroPress?


Both the AeroPress and the AeroPress Go come with a pack of 350 filters, which equates to about 1 years worth. You don’t want to get caught out with no filter papers, so when you’re running low grab yourself a replacement pack (Also 350 filters) from one of our many stockists.

What grind size should I use?


Use coffee that has been ground as fine drip or espresso grind. Espresso grind takes longer to press and requires skill and patience for multiple scoops but makes a richer brew more quickly due to more particle surface area. You can use preground drip coffee but you may want to use slightly more coffee or let it steep for a little longer to reach the same strength it would reach using a finer grind.




How much coffee does the scoop hold?


A level scoop holds 11.5 grams of coffee or about 2.5 tablespoons. A heaped or rounded scoop of coffee holds 14 grams or 3 tablespoons.




How do I store my AeroPress?


Always eject the used coffee right after brewing and store your AeroPress with the silicone seal pushed all the way through the chamber. This keeps the seal free of compression for longer seal life. When storing your AeroPress, always ensure it is completely dry.
