  1. Add 1 cup water to your pot and bring it to a boil over high heat. Remove the pot from the heat and let it sit for 30 seconds. (This will lower the water temperature to 200 degrees F.)
  2. Stir the coffee into the water. Let the brew sit for 2 minutes and stir again, then let it sit for 2 more minutes. 
  3. Sprinkle a little cold water on the grounds. Slowly pour the coffee, leaving behind the ground in the bottom of the pot.
