You're not pulling hard enough.

Do your best to position your chest over the top of the tap, and pull as directly upwards on the vertical part of the stem - if the stem isn't straight then it may not come out, but wiggling helps.

Also avoid getting your face in the way, just in case.

True, but this one has a grub screw, and with those type the position doesn't matter in my experience, but life is full of surprises...
