Even when you’re out in the middle of the wilderness, you’re probably still going to want to enjoy a nice cup of Joe. And why wouldn’t you?
Coffee makes everything better, especially out in the great outdoors. But, how exactly do you go about making coffee while you’re camping? Northern Forest Gear is here to help.
Below, we’ve talked about five different ways you can make coffee while camping. Depending on what you have and what you don’t, these methods are perfect for every camper who loves a good cup of coffee as the sun is coming up.
The easiest way to make coffee while camping is by relying on the classic coffee bag. Coffee bags, like tea bags, only require boiling water and a little bit of patience to make.
You can easily find your favorite coffee company’s bags of brewed coffee, or you can make your own personal coffee bags if you can't find what you want. Here’s how to make this easy form of camping coffee.
If you’re a lover of drip coffee, this is the perfect method for you. For those of you camping in big groups, this may not be the best method, but it is definitely ideal for single campers looking for a quality cup of Joe.
To do this method, you are going to need a drip coffee rig, ground coffee, paper filters, and a coffee mug to brew your coffee into.
Making breakfast and coffee while camping has never been easier than with a portable coffee system. These coffee systems brew a cup of coffee right in your hand, and the only extra components you’ll need are a mug and some coffee filters. Here’s how to use these handy-dandy portable coffee systems.
One of the most classic ways of enjoying coffee while camping is through a stovetop espresso maker. But, if you don’t have a portable stove, you can turn this into a “fire”-top espresso, and place your espresso maker right on top of your fire.
To make this delicious form of coffee, you are going to need an aluminum stovetop espresso maker, ground coffee, coffee measuring spoon, a coffee mug, and either a burning fire or a stovetop.
The last method we’re discussing today is the most traditional method, but it’s also the most complicated. If you want to embrace the true camping experience, making cowboy coffee is definitely the way to do it. To make this famous Western-movie drink, you’re going to need a metal coffee pot, an egg, cold water, ground coffee, and a cheesecloth. Here’s the step-by-step process of how to make this brew.
No matter where you’re camping how, it just doesn’t feel right without a quality cup of coffee. Thankfully, there are so many ways to brew your favorite drink out in the wilderness--it just depends on how you want to do it.
On top of these five methods, there are many more for you to work through. Regardless of your personal preference, there’s an ideal method of making coffee while you’re camping just for you.
