1.Boil your water while you get everything else set-up. 

2. Weigh out 19g of coffee, about 3 level tablespoons. Grind it fairly fine, finer than drip but not as fine as espresso. If it is too hard to press then your grind is too fine.

3. Apply the filter and cap onto the chamber with the plunger removed. Place chamber on top of mug or carafe. Rinse out with hot water to get rid of any papery taste from filter.
