Place your cafetiere on a kitchen scale, set to 0 and begin to add your coffee grounds. I recommend working to a ratio of 60g per litre of water, so 15g (or roughly one tablespoon) per 250ml cup.
Boil the kettle and add the water to your cafetiere, keeping to the above ratios. Immediately stir with a spoon to make sure all the coffee grounds mix with the water. Rest the lid on top, but hold off on plunging just yet. Set a timer for 4 minutes and leave your coffee to brew.
After 4 minutes, remove the lid & stir again. Then use the spoon to skim off any floating coffee grinds and oils off the surface of the coffee. Whilst this sounds like a bit of a faff, it makes your cofee taste less 'muddy' and makes it easier for you to plunge!
Place the lid back on and plunge - but only halfway! Allow the coffee to rest for 5 minutes (we promise it's worth the wait!) before pouring.
Pour, sip and enjoy!
