Step the first: take any fine quality coffee, of any consistency of grind and place a genorous amount at the bottom of some sort of hot liquid holding containter (preferably one that is easily poured).
Step the second: pour boiling water (an appropriate quantity) over coffee, stir, and let sit some appropriate amount of time.
Step the third: take one quarter cup (or approximatly) of very cold water, and pour quickly into coffee solution.
Step the fourth: pour coffee solution carefully and slowly into another container.
Step the fifth: delicious!
It works because pouring the cold water into the coffee solution makes the grinds coalesce at the bottom (trust me – I just did it!). This means you can make french press coffee w/o a french press. Also, there is no reason why you can’t be boiling the water while its brewing (i.e. on the stove), so long as you have a stove pot that you can pour out of reasonably well. This will achieve a different (still better) flavour because the water will be hotter whilst it interacts with the beans.
I’m sipping this coffee right now, and there are no grinds in it. Also, it’s as black as Stephen Harper’s cabinet will be in bizarro world.
