So when our friends over at Fellow Products told us about the Prismo, we were obviously pretty stoked. The first time we got to use one, we knew it was something special and if we ever had the AeroPress on the shelf, we’d carry the Prismo as well.
The Prismo is a 70 micron mesh filter (kind of like an espresso filter basket) that sits inside of a plastic casing with a little pressure activated valve that all fits perfectly on the AeroPress. The valve is important because it allows you to have no dripping during the preparation of your coffee, creating a true immersion. That’s especially helpful if you’re preparing a very small amount of coffee—like, say, espresso.
Here’s what you’ll need for an espresso-like brew:
AEROPRESS + PRISMO ESPRESSO RECIPE:
Bring water to a boil (or set your EKG to 210º).
Place metal filter in the Prismo with the Fellow logo face up.
Screw the filter holder into the AeroPress.
Pour some hot water into your AeroPress to preheat it, then dump it out.
Set your AeroPress on your favorite mug or demitasse.
Pour 20g (or two scoops) finely ground coffee into the AeroPress (Grind on 3 on your Encore).
Start your timer as you pour 60g water into the AeroPress.
Stir vigorously with the paddle for 30 seconds.
After 1 minute, put the plunger into the AeroPress and press firmly.
Unscrew the Prismo and press the coffee into the trash for easy cleanup.
Rinse your Prismo completely.
Drink black or top with cold or heated milk for a tasty latte!
It might be best if you just see it in action. Come by and let Tyler show you how it works. We’ll be hosting a demo on Friday at 12pm. Check it out!
