How much coffee do you put in a cafetière?

How does a coffee cafeteria work?
A cafetière is a heatproof jug, typically made of glass, with a strainer attached to the lid. Once the coffee has brewed, you plunge the strainer to the bottom to separate the spent coffee grounds from the coffee, leaving your perfectly brewed coffee to pour from the spout and the grounds remain secured in the base.

How long do you leave coffee in a cafetiere?
Let your coffee steep for 4 minutes. Depending on your desired strength, the time can be increased. Once the time is up, stir the crust and scoop off the foam. Doing this before you plunge will help reduce ‘sludge’ and give a cleaner tasting cup.
How many tablespoons of coffee do you use per cup?

Where do you put coffee in a French press?
Add the ground up coffee to the bottom of your French press. Then use a kettle to pour enough water in to just wet the beans. (I love my Hario kettle with its thin and aim-able spout, but any kettle or even a measuring cup with a spout will work for pouring the water onto the beans.)
