Mistobox Brew Guides

I recently purchased an Aeropress for when I’m travelling for work, I just got sick and tired of terrible hotel room coffee and it’s pretty easy to brew up something decent with an Aeropress…but there was a step I was forgetting…

After starting your timer, “bloom” the grounds by pouring 100 grams (3oz, or enough to cover the coffee) of the filtered water just off boil. This step allows the grounds to saturate with water, forcing out gases and priming the coffee for the brewing process. To help this process, use a spoon to lightly stir the grounds and water to ensure all the grounds have been saturated.

Apparently the ‘bloom’ can make quite the difference.
