  4. Stir occasionally.
  5. Towards the end of the brew time, at about 3.5 minutes, attach the press lid to the top of the carafe.
  6. At 5 minutes, press down the plunger and decant the coffee into your serving vessel (OR for a cleaner cup with just as much body but much less particulate, try decanting the coffee without pressing the plunger down. Just engage the plunger a little so it stays put, hold the lid and pour!)

*Always be sure to decant your coffee into a separate serving vessel, otherwise the pressed coffee sitting at the bottom will continue to extract into your brew, resulting in a bitter, over extracted beverage.
