Here's my simple recipe for cowboy cold brew. Pick a grinder setting half way between the most coarse setting and what you'd use for drip. Use a ratio of four parts water to one part ground coffee, and place together in a sealed jar over night. Filter like crazy through double sheets of paper towel. That's your concentrate. Refrigerate it. When you're ready to drink, use one part concentrate to roughly two or more parts water (adjust to taste). Beware: drinking the concentrate can give you a caffeine overdose, so make sure to re-dilute when you're ready to enjoy. Serve with ice.
