Press Your Heart Out

Since Christmas, I’ve been brewing most of our coffee through the Aeropress that Sarah gave me. And while we’ve really enjoyed the coffee — especially when you compare it to what we’d get out of our old $20 drip pot — the process has started to make me obsess over all the little tweaks I can make.

I mean, if there’s a better cup of coffee to be had, I seriously want to go to there.

Anyhow, thanks to my desire to over-research everything, I’ve spent a lot of time looking at metal disk filters, grinders & brewing recipes. Which led me to the popular (in coffee nerd circles, at least) inverted brewing method.

To be perfectly honest, inverted brewing is kind of intimidating. Mainly because I don’t like the thought of “flipping” a cylinder of near-boiling water before I’ve, well, had my first cup of coffee.

So when gridwriter mentioned the Heart Roasters Aeropress method — which I seem to have missed in my fairly extensive research — I was really excited. I have yet to try it, but I’m really looking forward to giving it a shot.
