Bill Shannon says:

For my Americans: his 30 grams of coffee to 500 grams of water=
1 ounce of coffee for every 18 (roughly) ounces of water
1 ounce of coffee = about 1 pint of water

Tyler Durden says:

It seems you are wasting 5 minutes to let everything settle to the bottom when you can press it all to the bottom in 5 seconds.

Yes it taste better, but to much thing to do for me so i don't scoop the foam.

SK says:

Soft water?

Hmm. Hard water tastes better.

Lifted_Above says:

I was following up until the brew time was said to be 4 minutes. I get that. After 4 minutes of soak, I've seen in other places that a person is to slowly plunge and then pour into a cup.
You're saying after 4 minutes, plunge part way and wait another 5 minutes before pouring? Isn't that essentially a 9 minute soak time?
