French press question

Marvin | Jul 15, 2014 08:42 AM

Hi all -quick question about the French Press. is it normal after brewing for some of the grinds to be stuck to the top side of the wire mesh filter? The vast majority are on the bottom of the filter or left in the pot but some end up on the top of the filter. I'm not grinding so fine that the grinds can slip through the mesh, so I am gathering that the filter is not tightly pressed against the edge of the pot and so some are floating up past the sides of the filter. Is this normal or have I perhaps re-assembled it incorrectly after cleaning?
