I've had a stainless steel french press like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinox-Double-Wall-Coffee-Press/dp/B002KOAV80/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1343502123&sr=8-15&keywords=stainless+steel+french+press for the last 5 years. I used it every single day and it's still going strong. It's never going to break and there's nothing on it to wear out. Easy clean up, easy brewing. I assumed you were talking about burning through glass french presses before? I don't see how you could possibly burn through a french press like this, its virtually bullet proof.

... coffee grounds in a Ball jar filled with water. It's that simple then it sits in the frig. After a day I use a fine metal strainer to strain off a cup. I make sure to start another batch before I run out. Since I already use my frig there's no extra energy costs and it takes 1.5 minutes to make.
I was inspired to do a simple blog post on it. Cheap Simple Coffee Brewing.
Excellent pic, Tom!
We had a permies thread on cold brew mason jar coffee back in 2011. Has other links to posts about cold brew coffee and discussion of the toddy as well.

Stir in 1/4 cup sugar and 1/3 cup of coffee, and a pinch of whole cardamom seeds (optional). Bring it back to a full boil until it foams, then remove from heat. Keep stirring and boiling until it boils without foaming. Let it settle and pour into turkish coffee cups (about the size of espresso shots).

Has anyone tried sun brewed coffee?

So ..... for the thing about using paper, it sounds like the reasoning is to have very clear coffee and easier cleanup. I confess that my coffee always has a bit of "dirt" in the bottom that makes it through the filter. But my cleanup is definitely a snap. While I just leave that tiny bit of mud at the bottom of the cup and wash it away, I do like the idea that we come up with solutions for folks that have no sacrifice. Anybody have solutions for a clearer cup of coffee for the paper-lovers without paper and quick cleanup?
