How to Make Coffee: Large Recipe Using Muslin Filter

How to Make Coffee for 40 the Old-Fashioned Way

This recipe is from the '30s. It's a great way to try out that old muslin coffee filter you spotted at the swap meet.

Things You'll Need:
  • 1 pound desired ground coffee
  • 1 muslin bag or filter that will hold twice the amount of coffee
  • 2 gallons of filtered water
  • Large pot to hold everything
  1. Fill the large pot with 2 gallons of the filtered water. Bring to a boil.
  2. Place the ground coffee in the muslin bag or filter and drop into the boiling water.
  3. Cover pot, and reduce heat to a very low simmer.
  4. Let stand about 6 to 10 minutes. Remove the bag and serve the hot coffee to your guests.
This recipe is adapted from My New Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, 25th printing 1938.
