It is normal for a small amount of coffee to drip through prior to pressing. If you are experiencing an excessive amount of early drip through, you need to use a finer grind of coffee and to give the chamber a shake to level the bed of coffee. One way to confirm that the grind is the problem would be to brew using your friend’s ground coffee in your AeroPress.
