Cowboy Coffee on a Rainy Day

Today we woke up to a cloudy day and only a half cup of bought iced coffee left. So cow boy coffee was made. While the water was heating up I noticed that the sky was heavy and thunder was rolling.

Stormy sky

I got out my sauce pan and filled it with eight cups of water to boil. Once the water came to a rolling boil I added the ground coffee (I did two scoops per cup of water).

First bring four cups of water to a boil

As you can see below you need to make sure that the pan is big enough, because the minute I added the coffee the water almost boiled over. You need to stir while adding each scoop of grounds.

Add the coffee and stir

It almost overflowed.

Boil for another 2 to 3 minutes then add a cup of cold water

I let it boil for around three minutes. Then I shut the burner off and poured one cup of cold water splashing it along the sides to get the grounds to sink. I waited a minute then poured some in my cup, as you can see I was a little impatient and did not pour it slowly

Oops pour the coffee a little too soon. 
I put the rest in a Mason jar to store for tomorrow
I made eight cups of coffee
The rain finally came.

If you haven’t tried making coffee this way I would definitely recommend that you do. It taste bold and smooth not bitter.

Thank you for reading. If you have tried cowboy Coffee that is awesomelet me know what you think. This year is the first I have heard of it so I figured it was a good time to give it a try considering I do not have a French press anymore. I hope you enjoy your weekend feel free to comment or like this post.
