No, as there's no click stop for in between numbers..

You don't have a "Live ID" listed Barrett, you have a Yahoo email address., that's why I added you as a Yahoo Messenger contact..

I see...So what can I do? Is four minutes even good for the fine of grind or am I over extracting?

Depends if you're tasting too many bittering/astrigent components in the taste/aftertaste.. If not, then I'd try/go to a 4 minute steep.

There will eventually be a combination that works for ya Barrett. {;-)


P.S. I'm busy getting dinner ready also., but here & there in the kitchen & around..

4 1/2 on 20 or 22? I found out that there are settings for In between numbers...I've heard people say "Oh I set my grinder to 15 or something. And my grinder clicks In the middle of the two numbers sooo

4 minutes on 20.

The extra half minute will make it easier to do your press down also.

I'd recommend the 4 minutes total overall time including the plunging & the time it takes to pour everything out, as it's still extracting during all this contact time.

As I said earlier, I do my FP a little differently than most everyone else.
Everyone seems to add the coffee into the empty FP, then pour in their brew water at whatever their desired brew temperature is for that particular coffee.

I pour in my just off the boil water from the kettle, & stir to cool the water to get to my particular brewing/steep temp., lets say it's 200F. I'll stop at 202F, then I add my coffee to the top. I then gently poke the coffee down all around the top & it'll bloom up & settle in around 200F.

I then add the top of the FP to hold the escaping heat in.
After 4 minutes of steep, I'll take the top of the press off., & then I'll then do a surface swish back & forth across the surface to break up any remaining 'old' darkened bloom so that it goes a lighter color then add the top back on & plunge.

P.S. Guess ya don't have Yahoo Messenger installed huh?
In the 2 hrs since I asked to help you out via Yahoo chat with you, you haven't come online with it.{:-/
