Agitation plays a crucial role in extraction across various brewing methods, including Aeropress and plunger. Stirring pour-over coffee is recommended by some experts, but using metal tools can scratch glass and tear paper filters. Plastic, while avoiding these issues, raises concerns about exposure to hot water due to potential flavor and health implications.
