After reading the step-by-step process, I could almost smell your coffee. Yup, the AeroPress is what we use too. Great instructions, Jim.

I recently bought a stainless steel filter for my AeroPress. I was going to try the two different designs, then I got lazy and just took Jim's advice and bought the brand he recommended - seemed like a safe choice.

I have noticed that less drips through under only gravity with the stainless filter than with the stock paper filter - this might be one reason that you don't need the inverted technique.

The characteristic that I have found annoying about the stainless filter (compared to paper) is that some grounds always stay caked onto the filter and need to be removed. Perhaps I need to adjust brewing method or just the pressing rate to avoid this.

Have you thought about using your tooth brush? Might be a nice morning preview.

They make bacon flavored tooth paste .... now if I could only find egg flavored .... I could skip breakfast

Slide the SS filter off the side, with the press inverted, to scrape off grounds stuck to it. A HOT water rinse seems to clean it better than brushes do.

I found on the occasions that I left the grounds in the press longer after brewing, the grounds are less likely to stick. Not possible when you are pounding out 6-10 batches in a row when with a group though.
