Was wondering if there is any advantage to using the "inverted" method when using  the metal disk for the AP?

Yes, without doubt.  The metal filters allow more dribble-through if not inverted, especially if you allow more than a 15 second infusion.

Thx, Prof. I only use the metal disk now. I am wondering if there is also an advantage with oil pass thru. I think, originally, the inverted method came about because the provided filters filtered out some of the oils which prevented them from getting into the cup.

I was wondering because of the metal, if these oils now pass thru, since they are not absorbed by the paper?

I normally press about 300 grams of water which takes about two full minutes total press time. That is about the right amount of water with a normal press, but if I do inverted, I have 80-100 grams maybe that doesn't get pressed.

You can stop that dribble through to get a total volume complete non inverted infusion with all the metal filters designed for the Aeropress (Able disk Regular & Fine, also Kaffeologie S) when you flip the Aeropress down to press by simple pulling up slightly on the plunger. I'd say that creates a tiny vacuum, enough to stop any drip through.

I'm amazed no one's tried this, or if they have., they've not posted about it.. ;)


P.S. I've also discovered about a week ago a 100% Organic Cotton Aeropress Cloth Filter, made in America filter by American Coffee Trader for the Aeropress! {;-)
Sorry, gotta find the URL..

Made from 100% organic cotton grown in the USA
Cotton weaved in the USA
Filter sewn in the USA

A Canadian company & a Coffeegeek sponsor too! Click Here (www.eightouncecoffee.ca)


P.P.S. Guess I'll be buying this one too lol!
