The 21 Best AeroPress Recipes for the Inverted Method

The traditional way of brewing with an AeroPress is to place the brewing chamber over the cup, but it's also possible to brew inverted, which requires slightly inserting the plunger into the brewing chamber first. This allows for a fuller immersion and prevents coffee from prematurely dripping through the filter, which some people say results in a richer brew. It can be dangerous, though - if the plunger pops out when you flip, you can end up with hot coffee all over the place. It also reduces the capacity of the brewing chamber slightly, so it's not ideal for larger volumes. Are the benefits worth the costs? Try it out and decide!
