Holy Swaddling Cloth of the Soiled Baby Jesus.

1 lb. of course-ground medium-to-bright roast coffee of your choice.
In a 1 gallon container, slowly pour 64 ounces of room temperature water over the grounds.
Stir gently.
Let sit for at least 12 hours, gently stirring periodically.
At the end of the brewing time, filter the radioactive contents a minimum of 3 times.
I used a fine sieve over top a medium sieve, and then ran it all again through a cotton rag filter.
Several layers of cheesecloth were another suggestion, but I didn't have any on hand.

If you like, add your choice of sweetener - I used vanilla syrup.
If you also like, dilute with half-and-half - similar to Vietnamese coffee, but - er, not.

Or drink it straight, and go directly into orbit, do not pass go, do not collect $200, do not forget your pressure suit.

And for the love of god, please don't do this with shitty coffee because it will only taste like shit, and you will have wasted a lot of time and missed out on WHAT WILL NOW KEEP ME AWAKE FOR WHAT WILL BE GOING ON 72 HOURS STRAIGHT AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

My daughter turned me on to this method while I was visiting her in Maui.
Great stuff!
She uses brown sugar as sweetener. I have to admit that it's perfect.

Of course, they had Hawaiian coffee, which is anything but shitty.

You do have a bejeweled assortment!
*much envy*

I'd dump the unspecified Mexico grounds, though..they have it here at the 99-cents store, and I hear that Mexico's use of DDT remains unregulated.
