Here's a recipe that Smitten Kitchen adapted from the NY Times recipe. It's a condensed cold brew that can be doctored up any way you see fit by just adding more water to making it into a dessert coffee. It's so handy.

I read somewhere something similar to the smittenkitchen way---mix the desired amount of coffee and water; leave out at room temerature for 12 hours or in refrigerator for 24. I've been doing this ever since reading about it and I, too, love it.

i like to use my french press to make it. just add 3 parts water to 1 part coffee grinds into the pot, mix, let sit for 12 hours or so, and plunge! i then pour into a jar and keep it in my fridge for weeks (if it lasts that long)!
