My ASM is 73 and he's been with the our troop for a while, learned and shared a lot with scouts and scouters. Here's his brew (also known as Guides Coffee): 

Start heating a large coffee pot of water.  Use 1 tablespoon of regular grind, high-grade, fresh coffee for each cup, plus a couple extra for the pot. Stir one egg into the coffee, shell and all, until the egg is thoroughly mixed and the coffee is moist. The water should now be at a rolling boil. Dump the coffee into the boiling water and let it "roll" gently for a minute or so but no longer! Set the pot back off the heat and dash in a cup of cold water. This settles the grounds. 

The prime shortcoming of this method is that a small quantity is difficult to brew, but hey, who needs less than 16 cups. This recipe can be found in an old cookbook called " Family Campers' Cookbook" by Bill Riviere.
