  • 1 Aeropress Coffee Maker
  • 1 Gooseneck Kettle
  • 1 Coffee Grinder


  • 250 grams boiling water
  • 20 grams ground coffee
  • 1 tbsp sweetened condensed milk


  • Boil about three times the amount of water as your mug will hold and measure out 20 grams of fresh coffee beans.
  • Place 1 TBSP of sweetened condensed milk in a mug.
  • Grind the coffee beans finely so they look like powder and form a flat surface when you push your finger into them.
  • Place a paper filter in the filter holder of an Aeropress and pour boiling water over it to rinse it.
  • Put the plunger in the chamber and pull it as far out as possible without breaking the seal. Place the entire thing upside down, plunger first.
  • Add the ground coffee and 1/4 tsp cinnamon to the chamber.
  • Slowly pour 50 grams of water in (to bloom the coffee beans, let gasses escape) and wait 30 seconds.
  • Pour 200 grams more water into the chamber and wait 15 seconds. Screw the filter holder (with a wet filter inside) onto the chamber and flip it onto your mug (with the condensed milk at the bottom).
  • Push down on the plunger until you feel a lot of resistance and pause while still maintaining some pressure. Wait 2 or 3 seconds and repeat until you reach the bed of coffee beans or hear a hiss.
  • Remove the Aeropress, unscrew the filter holder and pull out the plunger. This will make your Aeropress last longer.
  • Stir the condensed milk and coffee together and enjoy!
