My third used the inverted method, with some nice, fresh Guatemalan beans (roasted on Monday). Damn that was a good cup of coffee. Maybe there's something to the hype. I'll have to try these beans in a pour-over to compare.
I've been resisting an Aeropress due to the fact that it seems to be hyped exclusivly by people that I find intolerable.
I also have far too much coffee Paraphernalia in my house already, a moka pot, two different pour-overs (different sizes), and two french presses (different sizes), two different burr grinders (one set for the moka/pour overs, one set for the french presses). So more gadgets might be unwise, and I hear that an aeropress makes coffee of a similar style as a moka pot, just not hot.
