Any course ground coffee (I like flavored coffees) will do. this is my coffee pitcher. Fill the basket with coffee, the pitcher with water (I use the water from my brita pitcher I keep in the fridge). Let it brew in the fridge overnight. Remove the grounds (so it doesn’t get bitter). Voila. Cold brew coffee.
I use one of these guys they make a larger one too that is marketed for iced tea, but seems to be essentially the same.
I would say look into cold brewing if you're mixing with hot water anyways. I got this one recently and it's been great so far - just throw tea in at night, have concentrated tea ready in the morning, very little work.
Not sure how BIFL it is but it's a pretty simple thing - plastic and a screen. It also has the benefit of being less bitter than brewing with hot water.
Have you looked into cold brew? It takes way longer, so you won't want to brew a single cup at a time. This Takeya one is nothing more than rebox of one of their tea systems. The infuser even still says tea leaves on the bottom! None the less, it still works great as a pitcher (the infuser is removable), though I'm afraid I can't comment on how well it works as a cold brew setup as I haven't much experience with anything else.
I love this thing. I make it and then sometimes if I only drink half, I add more water and let it brew again.
Also are you using a bialetta on the stove? I have a 12 cup one and I love it so much, reading how much you hate it makes me want to cry.

100% way to go! You don't have to worry about needing to find the perfect water to coffee concentrate ratio. This doesn't make concentrate as it makes it right to drink!
Don't need to apologize.
Cold brew is just another way of making coffee. Instead of using hot water, this method uses cold water and therefore will take much longer to brew - about 12-18 hours.
Stick something like the below link in the fridge with your ground up beans and leave it in there for at least 12 hours and you'll get cold brew. [link]
