Drop Coffee With A Little Love

What you need: 

10 cups water
1/8 cup ground coffee
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cocoa

What you do: 

1. In large pot, pour in water. Sprinkle coffee evenly on top of water in pot.Sprinkle cocoa evenly on top of coffee.
2. Bring pot to boil on stove at high temperature. Turn heat down to low and let boil for 5 to 10 minutes.
3. Turn off heat. Scrape off any coffee grounds on side of pot, and place in middle of pot. Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
4. Slowly pour coffee into cups from pot (all grounds should be at bottom of pot, so you shouldn't get any in your cups).
Pot is done when you have to tilt the pot more than 90 degrees or when grinds appear in your cup.
Because of the direct boiling and cooling of the coffee in the pot, an oil from the coffee is released that is not generally released by making coffee any other way, at least not that I have found. This oil is both tasty and soothing to the stomach. Best coffee I ever had!

High Altitude: Don't Boil for more than five minutes! Ends up with reverse effect (down instead of around...)
