Great question. They say it should take no longer than 4 minutes start to finish from the time the water first hits the coffee. This is dependent on the size of the grind. Too fine and the water won't drain well. To coarse and you don't get a good extraction.
Wet the grounds but don't let them float and let them "bloom" for 30 seconds. They will release gases during this time and expand.
Slowly fill the upper half of the brewer with water but don't overflow and let it drain. 1 minute 30 seconds.
Refill the upper half of the brewer with water and let it drain. By this time the filter is getting full of particulates and it takes a little longer. 2 minutes.
