|Classic||Charger||Inverted||Bold (our choice)|
|Description:||The most basic “beginners” brew. Wet the paper filter place it in the Aeropress filter cap. Place Aeropress on the vessel to capture the coffee, add the coffee in and then…||A brew that results in a strong flavourful cup, it is based on the basic brew.||This brew is down with the Aeropress inverted upside down. The plunger is placed just inside the brewing chamber and then it is inverted. The filter cap is only added after the final step (before you plunge).||Uses a small amount of coffee to give you the most bang for your buck, based on the Inverted method.|
