Subject: Made my 1st cuppa w/my new Aeropress - yum yum!
How long has the Aero been on the ket? I want to know how many
great cups I've missed already! I've been using French Press for a few
years now, but the Aero blows that out of the water. I even used the
inverted method right outta the starting gate! OEM paper filter and
195 F H2O and some Sidamo Misty Valley DP.

It was delicious! Best cup I ever tasted.

So I am now guessing that I am very near the apex of coffee
quality/enjoyment as far as my equipment and technique and raw
supplies are concerned. I purchase my greens from Sweetias, use a
Zassenhaus grinder and now use an Aeropress. I use filtered tap water
at home or distilled water when I'm on the road. I'm not sure a
different filter media will make a noticable difference to me.

If it gets any better than this, please don't tell me (not yet,
anyway), I don't think I could handle it!

Zeek!

*off to make another cup;.)*

OK, I'll bite.

You do NOT prefer vacuum over press.

Here's the writeup for the alternative filter and inverted method.

Could you tell me more about the inverted method? People refer to it
on the forums but I can't find it described in detail.

I prefer vacuum over press, but others may disagree.
