My understanding, and I haven't tried this method yet, is that you put the plunger into the press, then add the coffee and water while the AP is standing on the plunger. The plunger creates a seal and it doesn't leak all over the counter. After the appropriate time, you put the filter and filter holder in place and quickly invert over your favorite mug. Then press as usual. There was a more detailed explaination posted a couple of days ago. A quick search of your gmail archives should turn it up. Demian On 6/25/07, Brett Mason wrote: <Snip>
Turn it upside down to start with and with the plunger already in the barrel. Put the grounds in on top of the plunger rubber seal. Pour in the water. When the brew time is done, put a filter in the holder, screw it on the barrel end. Now, optionally you may squeeze the air out in this position, then quickly invert it onto the mug and press it out OR just invert it quickly onto the mug and press out.
