Cowboy Coffee: How to Make the Best Cup of Coffee

There’s nothing better than a good cup of cowboy coffee. Here you’ll learn the trick to a great cup that’s cowboy approved!

Recipe: Fill a 3-quart graniteware or enamel coffee pot with water to the bottom of the spout. Place the pot over high heat and allow the water to warm. When the water has warmed, pour in ¾ cup coffee grounds. Let the water come to a good roiling boil. Reduce the heat to medium and let boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Be careful the water doesn’t boil over. Remove the pot from the heat and let sit for 1 to 2 minutes. Pour 1/2 to 3/4 cup of cold water down the spout to settle the grounds.

My large pot is about 2 gallons of water to 1 1/2 cups of coffee grounds. Once that has boiled, let it set and pour about a 1 – 1 1/2 cups of cold water down the spout.
