AeroPress cold brew overnight with Fellow Prismo recipe

Tip: Technically, you don’t have to use the Prismo for this recipe, but I think it definitely helps.

For this one, I followed the cold brew recipe provided by Fellow, the makers of the Prismo.

It’s a little bit different from a standard AeroPress cold brew recipe, in that you can leave it sitting in the regular position rather than the inverted position, as the Prismo is air-tight.

I much prefer being able to leave the AeroPress in the regular position, as it’s a lot more stable.

Also, it produces a cold brew concentrate, so when it’s ready, you’ll need to add some extra water or milk to it. You can purchase your own Prismo if you want to follow this recipe.

Ingredients

  • An AeroPress
  • A Fellow Prismo
  • 35 grams of coarsely ground coffee – due to the long steeping time, if it’s fine, the result will be bitter
  • 130 grams of water (room temperature)

Steps

  1. Prepare the AeroPress by placing it in the inverted position, with the plunger inserted just above the number 4 on the AeroPress chamber.
  2. Pour in your 35 grams of ground coffee and 130 grams of water.
  3. Stir the coffee for at least 20 seconds.
  4. Attach the Fellow Prismo cap onto the end of the AeroPress chamber.
  5. Place the AeroPress in your fridge for at least 12 and up to 24 hours. If using a Fellow Prismo, you can place it either in the inverted or regular position.
  6. Once you’ve left it for between 12 – 24 hours, grab your best glass mug (with ice added, if you want to make it extra cold!) and place the AeroPress on top. Press the AeroPress into your cup.
  7. Add sugar/milk to taste and enjoy your delicious reward. It’s well worth the wait!

Brewing cold brew with this method is doing just that, so if that bothers you, don’t use this method too regularly.

Of course, you can always purchase a replacement rubber gasket.

On to the next recipe!

Traditional cold brew with an AeroPress finish

This recipe was found on reddit. It adds an AeroPress twist to the standard cold brew recipe.

You prepare the coffee in a jar, stick it in the fridge overnight, and then press it through the AeroPress when you’re ready to drink it. Simple!

Ingredients

  • An AeroPress
  • ⅔ cup of medium fine ground coffee (about 60 grams)
  • 1 ½ cups of cold water
  • A jar with an air-tight lid

Steps

  1. Pour the ground coffee and water into the jar.
  2. Stir the coffee for at least 20 seconds.
  3. Put the lid on the jar and place it in your fridge for 10 – 12 hours.
  4. When it’s ready to drink, prepare a cup with some ice and put your AeroPress on top.
  5. Pour the cold brew concentrate into the AeroPress chamber up to the number 2.
  6. Top it up with some cold water up to the number 4 and press it into the cup.
  7. Add milk/sugar to taste.

Like I said, simple! Let’s take a look at recipe number 3.

Cold brew with the PuckPuck AeroPress attachment

OK, I’m going to be honest here, this next one isn’t an overnight recipe. In fact, if done correctly, it should only take about 2 ½ to 3 hours to brew. That’s pretty amazing!

I thought I had to include it in this post though, as the long brew time is one of the only downsides to cold brew. So tell me, who doesn’t want quick cold brew?!

“How is that possible”, you ask? It’s all due to the help of an AeroPress attachment called the PuckPuck, which controls the flow of water into your AeroPress allowing you to make a slow-drip brew.

You can check out their website if you want to learn more about the Puck Puck.

Let’s get into it!

Ingredients

  • An AeroPress
  • A Puck Puck
  • A Puck Puck water vessel or compatible water bottle
  • 38 grams of medium ground coffee
  • 400 mls of cold water
  • 100 grams of ice
  • A jug or jar

Steps

  1. Remove the splash filter from the base of the PuckPuck. Unscrew and rinse both parts of the PuckPuck with hot water, making sure that all four vent holes are unblocked, and then them screw back together
  2. Put one of your AeroPress paper filters into the AeroPress cap and attach it to the AeroPress chamber
  3. Pour the ground coffee into the AeroPress chamber and gently shake it so it’s level. Place the Puck Puck splash filter on top of the coffee grounds.
  4. Place your AeroPress on a jug or jar. Attach the Puck Puck water vessel or compatible water bottle to the Puck Puck and place it on top of the AeroPress
  5. Add the 100 grams of ice and then add the 400 mls of cold water to the vessel
  6. Adjust the drip rate of the PuckPuck by slowly turning it until you start to see drips coming out of the valves. To achieve a 2 ½ to 3 hour brew time, you should be getting about 50 drips per minute.
  7. If you want some help getting the timing right, you can even use the PuckPuck app. It’s available for both Apple and Android devices and helps you accurately adjust your drip rate.
  8. Once finished, pour it into your favourite cup and add milk/sugar to taste.
