I want my coffee to brew longer than the 10 second allotted for in the instructions. If I leave my coffee in the press without plunging it will still trickle through. Can you devise something that will allow me to brew the coffee longer before plunging? Thank you. – From Warren V.

If you wish to halt the trickle for awhile, just insert the rubber seal a half-inch into the top of the chamber and the trickle will stop. This is similar to what we do when we clamp our thumb on the top of a straw to stop dripping out the bottom of the straw. Extending the brew time will result in more bite in your brew.
