2016 World AeroPress Winning Recipe

Filip Kucharczyk used 35 grams of coarse ground coffee and 150 grams of water at 81 degrees Celsius. We used the following method to reproduce this recipe fairly closely.


  • AeroPress
  • Kettle


  • 35 grams coarsely ground coffee
  • 150 grams water (81 degrees Celsius)


  • Measure out 35 grams of coffee and grind “coarsely” (probably like a 9 or 10 out of 10 coarseness).
  • Add the plunger to the AeroPress and set it up in inverted position.  Add the ground coffee.
  • Pre-wet the filter cap with paper filter and put it aside.
  • Heat 150 grams of water to 81 degrees Celsius.
  • Over the next 15 seconds, pour 150 grams of 81-degree water onto the coffee.
  • Stir for 15 seconds, put the lid on, and wait until there is 1 minute on the timer (i.e., another 30 seconds).
  • Invert the Aeropress, give it a swirl, and plunge it.
  • Finally, add 100-120 grams of water to taste.
