AeroPress cold brewing demo

Watch European Coffee Trip's video about cold brewing with the AeroPress, including a demo of Alan's recipe! Since 2014, European Coffee Trip has been exploring and documenting the European specialty coffee scene. They also created AeroPress Movie, a documentary that chronicles the invention of the AeroPress and the rise of the World AeroPress Championship.

The secret behind the recipe

How can the AeroPress make cold brew in a couple minutes when other devices take hours? The key is the long stir time and using a fine grind of coffee. Optimizing the contact between the surface of the coffee grounds and the water quickly enables delicious flavor extraction from the grounds. It's harder to extract flavor using room temperature water but the brisk one minute stir overcomes that challenge.
