No coffee maker? No Keurig? Not necessary! Make coffee anywhere, anytime in just a few easy steps.


  • 16 tablespoons course ground coffee
  • 20 ounces cold water
  • Additional water
  • Funnel
  • Mesh strainer
  • Optional: Coffee filters


  1. Add coffee and water to a large glass container.
  2. Shake or stir together to combine.
  3. Allow to brew for 12 hours at room temperature.
  4. Using a mesh strainer and a funnel, pour coffee into another large container. [Glass, preferably.] If desired, you can also place a coffee filter in the mesh strainer to further filter the coffee. We've tried it with and without, and haven't noticed much of a difference. Using a filter takes much longer.
  5. After you've filtered the coffee, you have two options: heat it over a stove or drink it iced. Either way, mix 4 ounces of coffee and 4 ounces of water per serving.
