I know you already have a good amount of responses, but I thought I'd chime in as well. I've been using this. I pour my grounds in the center, fill with water, leave in the fridge for 24 hours, and boom, coffee for the week!
My all time favorite is cold brew - just throw grinds and water into the fridge the night before, and in the morning it’s the best thing ever. But I hate cleaning up my brew jar afterwards, so I rarely make it. I use Keurig instead - only one cup to wash after, and honestly I will reuse the same cup for an entire week without washing it.
Try cold brew, I think you might love it. (Best during summer months, obviously). I got my cold brew jar on Amazon.
Edit: this one

Consider that one as if you break the jar, you can easily replace it instead of something proprietary. I have a friend who uses it and loves it.
I've done a few home setups using mesh strainers and cheese cloth and nut milk bags (heh heh heh). Tired of the tedium I started looking and once I saw this I knew I found my solution.

I bought more Mason jars at Walmart (since their not proprietary for the strainer) and I'll cold brew a batch of coffee, pull the strainer and do a batch of cold brew tea.
I bought one of these Cold Brewer Still need a paper filter for the bottom of the batch but works really well. Requires coarse or French Press grind, so again the need for a grinder.
I use this mason jar and these bag filters. I fill up the filter bags full with fresh coarse-ground coffee, tie it, plop it in the jar, and let it sit 12-16 hours. It has turned out well with the few beans I've tried, yields a concentrate that I dilute 1:1 with water.
I used to use the steel mesh filter that came with that mason jar, but it lets through fine particulates from the grounds. You can probably get the jar for less, but you could probably use that and just pour through a filter without using the bags.
So... mess around with what you got, if it's too strong, water it down. Doesn't have to be a perfect science as long as it tastes good!
See, now you got me looking into things - I might get <strong>this one</strong>, it has good reviews, and I'd love to make this process simpler...
I prefer something like this: [link]
It's what we used before switching to "cold" brewing. We still have it, and use it when we forget to brew the night before. You can get a reusable filter for it.
This is what we use now.
