Basically, I shoot for a 15 or 16 to one ratio, water to coffee. So, for my AP, I use about 300 grams of water to 19 or 20 grams of coffee. I let it steep for about 1 1/2 minutes, then press. Makes about 9 oz or so of coffee.

For my ccd, I use 400 grams of water and 25 grams of beans.

Thank you!  I will give this a try as soon as I get home :D

Edit:  hah, looks like Tom feels the same way I do about the inverted method.  He must be a super klutz like me.

There is nothing klutzy about it.  The aeropress was just not designed to be used inverted.  Doesn't mean it can't, just not designed for it so issues can happen.

In that video, Tom couldn't get the plunger to seal at first so a fair amount of coffee leaked through (despite that being his "secret" solution to not bothering to invert it). Then he unscrewed the cap and dropped it into his cup of coffee.

I think he's a klutz!

The only issue I've ever had with inversion was just one time when I absent-mindedly forgot to insert a filter paper in the cap. When I re-verted the Aeropress the flood of coffee and grounds overwhelmed my cup and made a small mess on the counter. OMG!

I agree with Evan on this point. It's not that difficult. The Aeropress may not be designed for inverted brewing but using it that way doesn't open up a big can of worms either. If you're that accident prone you probably shouldn't be anywhere near really hot water.

That said, I'm not convinced it makes much if any difference in the quality of the brewed coffee. It's just one way to achieve consistency.

FWIW, I'm using a Disk Fine, and it seems to pass less water than the paper filter...maybe an ounce or two during the 2+ minutes that I'm stirring. With 18~20 grams (my scale isn't the best) I get a solid 10oz of happiness.
