Cowboy Coffee

This is by far the most common method of making coffee without a machine. It's called the Cowboy coffee because that's how Cowboys used to prepare coffee when out in the desert and away from any source of electricity. All you need is fine grind coffee, water, a container such as a kettle, and a source of heat. You begin by bringing the water in the pot close to the boiling point. Then you add a couple of spoons of coffee, depending on how strong you want it to be and how many people you are preparing the coffee for. Let the fine grind coffee sit on top of the hot water for a while and then use a strainer to pour the coffee into cups or glasses. When it has reached ambient temperature, just sip and enjoy your coffee.

Use Coffee Bags

Coffee bags can be used as tea bags to make delicious coffee. All you need is hot water, a few cups, and a few coffee bags that can be bought from most stores and supermarkets. You just let the coffee bag sit in a cup filled with hot water for a few minutes. The more you wait, the more flavorful and concentrated your coffee will be. You just have to experiment with various assortments of coffee bags to find your favorite.

Cold Brew Coffee

This type of coffee is different from the other methods and it will take some time. Cold brew coffee is made using a few ounces of coarse grind coffee roast combined with a few ounces of cold water. Put this mixture in a jar and store it overnight, preferably in a cold place. Let it stay there for at least 12 hours or even up to 24 hours if you are patient enough. The next day you should use a strainer to pour the coffee on several cups filled with cold water and ice. This is basically a coffee concentrate that you serve over cold water.

As you can see, it's possible to make coffee without having a coffee machine, but the process takes a bit of time and effort on your behalf. In most cases, it's worth the effort as making coffee without a machine has a special vibe to it. Also, it's important to have the right coffee roasts too.
