Vietnamese coffees are great and you just need a simple strainer like this.

You could just make cowboy coffee. It is just ground coffee boiled in pot of water for awhile, then a dash of cold water on top to settle grounds...then carefully pour into cups. This is traditionally made in an enameled metal coffee pot over a campfire with a few eggshells thrown in the pot & you need leather gloves to handle the piping hot pot.

I have never made it indoors. It tastes great in the mountains on a cold morning with hot biscuits, sizzling bacon & some pan fried brook trout.

I was going to say something similar. My grandma made the best coffee with a simple pot (not even a coffee pot, but a small pot you'd heat food in), tossed in the grounds, simmered for awhile (she went by smell as to how long to simmer) & then used a small strainer, the size that could fit over a mug or just let it settle on the burner for a few minutes & poured carefully to avoid grounds in the cup.

If I ever woke up & my espresso machine were broken (I shudder to think), that's how I'd do it. But, moreover, does it matter which container you use, if doing a pour over? Meaning, you could put that filter into any bowl of any material (glass, metal, Tupperware... an old olive jar), hold in place with tongs or utensils & pour over the water, no?

Good luck. Let us know what you do.

That's exactly what I meant. You can simmer it or just let it steep. I usually pour that through some kind of strainer. When the power is out, I still want coffee.

My friend Judy taught me how to make Swedish coffee, so now I'm good to go.
