A few days ago I moved into my new apartment. After borrowing coffee makers from past roommates, I realized I didn't own one myself.
And I am totally cheap. Buy a coffee maker? NOPE.
So I decided to come up with a way to make my delicious Café Bustelo without a coffee maker. After endless Googling things, I just decided to just wing it. And I did.

Alright, here's a really simple way to make coffee without a coffee maker!

What You'll Need:

Café Bustelo
A pot

How To Make It:

1) Fill about 2 mugs of coffee of water into your pot.
2) Bring water to a boil.
3) Add 4 tablespoons of Café Bustelo
4) Boil coffee for 2 minutes.
5) Pour into your mug, slowly. You want to make sure the coffee grinds stay at the bottom of your pot.
Café Bustelo is actually espresso coffee. However, I do drink it like regular cup of black coffee. I like my coffee strong and black, so Café Bustelo is perfect for this. The coffee I prepared came out smooth, but strong. Since Café Bustelo is a lot of softer than regular coffee, it dissolves easily. If You don't have Café Bustelo, test it out with a different coffee. Trial and error, my friends!
This actually came out so freaking good!

Has anyone else resorted to this sort of method to coffee brewing? Did it work well for you?

Happy Hyper Caffeinated Drinking!

Try it! The results aren't as clean because this neglects a filter...but it tastes pretty good (AND STRONG!) @smnthcarter773

I wonder if you could pour it through a filter to catch the grounds. I know I do this with cold brew.

I just do what Kali Muscle does for pre-workouts; instant coffee and some cola lol. But yes, this way off making coffee is genuinely a great one.
