The third method is the cold water method where you mix coffee and water in a glass and let soak for 12 to 24 hours according to what strength you would like. Use cheesecloth to line a funnel and set the funnel inside a glass jar. Pour coffee and water mixture through the funnel. Let it drain completely. Cover the mixture and refrigerate.
