    You can also use a French Press.
    Just put in the coffee grounds first then the water and no filtering required since the plunger will keep the grounds down at the bottom. In the French Press you will want to measure 1 part coffee grounds to 8 parts water.

    When the soak is finished, drape a cheese cloth over another container and strain the coffee.
    You can also use a paper filter but a cheese cloth seems to work better at catching all the grounds.
