Put hot water with coffee (in proportion) in a mason jar or a mug. Stir well. Immersion brew for 4 minutes (like you would in a french press). Pour the whole thing into a pourover cone lined with filter. What would/ is this style of brewing called? I can't find any info on this-- am I missing a memo somewhere? Is this too simple to be true?

This is how I have been making coffee while travelling-- I didn't want to take my beloved french press and was too cheap to buy a travel press. This is essentially what a $30 Clever Dripper
does for you, except all you need is a $5 cone and a few filters (and so it's even more forgiving than Clever).
In my experience this technique produces a clean cup that still has some of the flavors of the french press. Why haven't I seen anything similar in online discussions etc., except discussed as a cold brew technique?
