Add coffee to Phin Filter (see below), and shake to make sure it's even
Lay the Press into the Filter, either screwing on or pressing down (depending on your model)
Add a dash of boiling water (this allows for an even extraction)
Wait 1 minute, and then fill to the top with water
The typical extraction should be 3-5 minutes
**Phin Filter: This filter is available at many Asian Groceries, and comes in a variety of styles. We used the Press that screws on, but any kind should work great.
