What's the optimal brewing temperature for AeroPress coffee makers?
We found in our taste tests that using slightly different brew temperatures for different roasts can yield great results. A great starting point is to brew with 175°F (80°C) water for dark roasts and 185°F (85°C) for medium and light roasts. These temperatures deliver smooth, rich brews without the bitterness and acidity that come with using hotter water, but as ever, they’re just a starting point. One of the advantages of AeroPress coffee makers is the user controls all the brewing process variables including the temperature of the water used. We recommend brewing with water of different temperatures to learn what tastes best to you!
