Terry,
I use a brown paper filter too, but mostly to extract the diterpene oils
that hike LDL cholesterol. Any unfiltered coffee (i.e., espresso, or
Turkish) will do this too. The paper filter catches the offending oil. As
for mud in the bottom, that doesn't bother me. Rather, I think it adds
character and body. I have a vacuum pot which produces a very clean cup,
almost too clean for my liking.

I'll try some finer grinds to see if I can get my brew time down. Currently
I brew for exactly 3 minutes.  Have you tried using an insulated press? It
keeps the water temp pretty close to the temp you poured (I pour at 205F.
I've found the insulation makes for a swift and hearty extraction. I did
something very simple: get one of those foam "beer can huggers" that
companies give away for promos. Then get a small Bodum press (12 oz size).
Take the glass out of the Bodum holder and insert in the beer can hugger.
Presto!
Where can you get the lab sifters you mentioned?
I noticed that somebody said a better grinder was the solution to our woes.
As Allon indicated, you could have a NASA coffee grinder and you would still
need a better grinder. Any grinder generates powders since the nature of a
roasted been is brittle. Our sifter method circumvents the weakness of all
grinders.
