A 42-year-old man was left in a state of impotent fury yesterday, as repeated attempts to clear coffee grounds particles from the mesh on his cafetiere plunger once again ended in failure.

Toby Dell, a forklift truck engineer from Whitechapel in East London, had rinsed the plunger under the tap to get the worst off, before immersing it in a washing up bowl of clean water and banging it hard against the sides, to dislodge any stubborn remnants.

Despite this, when he placed the plunger on the sink's draining board, he noticed tiny particles of coffee grounds still clinging to the mesh.

Mr Dell then smashed the plunger repeatedly with a hammer, and was later seen striding towards the corner shop for a jar of Kenco Gold instant.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
