Straining broth through a coffee filter

How does one do this? I've tried several times, this morning most recently.

Broth not stock, chilled overnight in the fridge, top layer of fat completely removed, broth warmed just to turn jelly to liquid. Wet and squeezed coffee filter (natural, not bleached if that makes a difference), one ladle of broth. Let it sit for a good 5-6 minutes and got maybe 2 teaspoonfuls through. And this is just the clear stuff from the top of the pot, maybe a thyme leaf or two floating about, not even the sediment at the bottom to clog the filter.

Is one supposed to force it through with a spoon?

Thanks for your comments.
