Users have invented many different ways to use the AeroPress, including the inverted way. We don't recommend that because we don’t want people to get burned. But you can extend the steeping time by inserting the seal a half inch or so into the top of the chamber and thereby stopping any drip through until you start pressing. But extended time adds bitterness.

- next post: Do you recommend Aeropress Go for home use as well? My current Aeropress numbers are not as visible anymore and seal leaks air sometimes when pressing I'm considering replacing it with Aeropress Go. My Aeropress is my favorite device I have ever owned. Thank you, Allan. – From Jim M.
