So here is something else to try...The pull instead of the push.


Plunger down towards the bottom, add grinds and water, sir, steep.

Pull plunger up, discard used grinds, rinse and then plunge.

Brings out even more brightness and almost no bitter left.
very interesting...

I don't know how much flavor is added as the H20 goes throught the grind but will try this. Hey you never know until you try it.

Interesting. I'll give it a whirl, even though I've learned how far to drink before I get to the sludge

This sounds like a mess waiting to happen. My little Bodum doesn't seal well enough around the top to keep the grounds from carrying my premature coffee right up around the edges of the carafe.
