Your procedure of separate and air dry is excellent. To make storage more compact you can leave the plunger pushed all the way through the chamber so the rubber seal protrudes and is not compressed inside the chamber. Let me add a suggestion. Remove the rubber seal from the end of the plunger every couple of months and clean the seal inside and out and the tip of the plunger.
- previous post: Hi Alan, love the press, been using it for many years. Instructions state that you should stop pressing when you feel enough resistance. That is above when the seal hits the puck, right? I read that it will reduce the bitterness of the coffee, is that true? But, pressing all the air thru the puck will also add the oils to the coffee to increase the flavor/taste, correct? So, what is the deal and trade-off? Thanks – From Cosmo B.
