Black & White Printing

I have a color inkjet printer (HP 5440) which is working fine on my
system. Sometimes, however, I have a color document that I want to print
in black & white (greyscale). I remember that in my Windows days, I
could just select printer properties and say "black and white". I seem
to remember - at some point - doing something similar in Linux, although
maybe I'm going senile.

Does anyone know a simple way to tell CUPS to render the document in
black and white?
