It is normal for the plunger to feel a little "springy". The compressed air in the chamber is an "air spring". But remember too, that if you press hard it compresses the puck of coffee and blocks the flow. So press gently and wait 30 to 60 seconds for the liquid to flow through. Also, you may want to try a coarser grind.
