Fill coffee pot with water to the start of the spout. Bring water in coffee pot to a boil on high heat. Add coffee grounds and reduce heat to medium. Stir down with spoon if boil gets too high. Return to high heat and bring mixture to another boil, about 1 minute, or until froth is gone. Turn off heat and let coffee grounds settle. Pour cold water around the top of the coffee pot. If using salt, sprinkle on top, to taste. Keep coffee pot on low heat to keep warm. Do not allow to boil again.
