Hi Jean, I rather agree with Jim. Since the sealing part is considered the upper or end part, the non-sealed part (or bottom) would stand for the "bottom" In practice would mean inserting the coffee packet with the bottom first. I remember back in the States when making coffee with huge coffee urns inserting a rather large packet (filter) with a string attached to the upper part which was supposed to left out side the coffee maker fro handling it after finishing. (of course if this is related to a coffee urn or machine)
