Topic: Aero press follies (8 msgs / 109 lines)
1) From: Peter Zulkowski
I have not used my Aeropress in a while.
Usually make my afternoon cup in a french press.
But then I came across the Aeropress sitting in the little travel kit I 
made for it, and decided, why not.
Got the water heating in the electric pot and ground some of my favorite 
SM beans to about half the plunger full.
Then I remembered about the inverted method.
I had not tried that, but then again.. ..
why not?
I inserted the plunger and pulled it back almost all the way out.
Dumped the coffee in with it's little funnel..
Poured in the coffee and it filled to about half.. this is nice! :)
Slowly poured the water in to mix with the coffee.
I have this electric ( uses a AAA battery or two) swizzle stick that 
mixes swell, and keeps the bloom down.
I can add lots of water and it does not overflow! :) :)
Now where did I leave that filter thingie...
okay, there it is...  over on the table.
I do Aeropress real close to the sink,
learned from experience.
Got every eventuality taken care of.... he he....
Hurry now,
need to plunge soon...
Is there not supposed to be some kind of an interlock to attach this 
filter thing to?
Now how did that break off???
There it is!
On the bottom!
Oh My !!!
Seems like I put the plunger in from the wrong end :( :(
Good thing I was near the sink :)
Btw, the coffee (what was left of it after juggling) brewed just fine :)

What is this "inverted method" of which you speak?

This is the sort of thing that can happen when you try to make coffee before
you've had your coffee.  :-)
