Recipe for the cold coffee from yesterday, so I don't forget:

materials
2L water
7 tablespoons coffee
~teaspoon ground cardamom
10 tablespoons demarara sugar

process
1. mix the coffee and the cardamom in a small bowl, measure the sugar into a different bowl
2. Put the water in a large pot and bring it to the beginning of a gentle boil on a large flame
3. shut down the flame and move the pot aside
4. add the coffee and cardamom and stir just enough so there are no clumps
5. light a flame that is wide enough for the pot on its next to lowest setting - if you'r using electric stove, like I did, make sure it's a different flame, since the heating element takes time to cool down.
6. let the pot sit until it has been gently steaming for about 5 minute(this will take 20-25 minutes, if this batch is a good indicator)
7. move the pot off the flame for 5 minuts
8. repeat 6 and 7 twice more
9. add the sugar and stir for 30-40 seconds, then repeat 6
10. move the pot off the flame and wait for 5 minutes while the grounds settle down
11a. strain through coffee filter paper. alternately, if you have a plunger with a dense mesh
11b. use the coffee plunger and then the filter paper.

NOTES:
1) the main idea while brewing is moving the water as little as possible, keep this in mind while moving the pot
2) you had better change filter papers after each use because the grounds will start blocking the paper rather quickly
