How to Make The Best Cup of Kona Coffee In Just 3 Minutes

Our favorite method for a fast, no-fuss, immersion brew


Gone are the days we only use Aeropress for camping. This funky little plunger does a cup of Kona good in just minutes from start to finish. Its smooth, fruity, and full-bodied result is why it's easily become a kitchen staple.


What You'll Need

  • 20 grams Ulu's 100% Kona coffee

  • 365 grams (13oz) Filtered water

  • Kettle

  • Mug

  • Aeropress coffee maker (They're about $30, durable and incredibly portable)

How to Brew


1. Using filtered water, bring the kettle (stovetop or electric) to a boil, then let it cool for a minute (aim to pour between 175 and 185 degrees)


2. While your water boils, grind your whole Kona coffee beans to a medium-fine consistency


3. Insert a filter into the black detachable filter cap and twist it in place to assemble the Aeropress. Then wet the filter.


4. Dump 20 grams of medium-fine coffee grounds into the chamber (about 1 1/2 Aeropress scoops)


5. Pour water about halfway up the chamber


6. Use the paddle stir and stir if fully about 10x (about 30 seconds)


7. Pour the remaining water until it reaches the top line on the Aeropress chamber


8. Insert the plunger and fully press through, until you hear the little 'hissss'



A Few Notes


-If you find the plunge is a little too hard to press down, it's possible your grind is too fine

-If your brew seems a little too bitter, it's possible your grind is too fine

-Should this method leave you wanting more body and creamier consistency, try a slightly longer immersion time or the inverted method!


Inverted Aeropress Method


1. Using filtered water, bring the kettle (stovetop or electric) to a boil, then let it cool for a minute (aim to pour between 175 and 185 degrees)


2. While your water boils, grind your whole Kona coffee beans to a medium-fine consistency


3. Insert the plunger into the chamber and place upside down with the flared side up (do not put the filter cap on yet


4. Dump 20 grams of medium-fine coffee grounds into the chamber without getting grounds on the rim (about 1 1/2 Aeropress scoops)


5. Pour water about halfway up the chamber


6. Use the paddle stir and stir vigorously for about 30 seconds


7. Pour the remaining water until it reaches the top line on the Aeropress chamber stirring slowly and wait for an additional 45 seconds to a minute


8. Place the paper filter in the black filter cap and dampen it with water


9. Tightly secure the filter onto the chamber and very carefully, flip it onto your mug


10. Press the plunger through, until you hear the little 'hissss'
