Default Re: Making coffee while camping?

My two cents from a lifetime of coffee drinking and camping.
Instant coffee for a fix, just to survive. Always have some somewhere. Don't need the water real hot. I had a small jar even when backpacking.
Pour over is great, one cup at a time.
French press takes less room than a percolator but it's messy and only makes two cups. I have used mine a lot tent camping.
Percolators are good for more cups and you don't need a separate pot just to boil water in.
I have settled on this drip maker by Coleman because it's just like home.

Agreed. When we used to head out for opening day of fishing with the tent trailer, it was often quite cold. Most of the time we made coffee in a tin can with grounds thrown in along with egg shells. At 20* and snowing you will think it is the best coffee that you ever had. Oh the joys of being a teenager with a fish crazy dad.

If you have the room, don't forget to bring some port for the coffee.

I think if I were in need of a coffeemaker for a camp, I would most definitely go with an aeropress with a metal filter....I use one at home now, and with how it all fits together to store, can't imagine why I wouldn't take it with me.

You can get all your coffee gear in one little tub, or stuff it all in your backpack.
This is what we did, but the Moka pot sounds good and I'll take along on the next trip.

Egg shells? A variation of egg coffee?

I always bring a Moka pot when camping. When I don't have it with me I just go Turkish (without sugar though).

Turkish (in this case) is just a fancy name for putting ground coffee in a pot/pan with water, boiling it, adding sugar and then pouring the coffee (grounds included) in a cup.

Does anybody use the jetboil kit? Seems like a cool alternative that could fit my needs

Looks like it can only be used to boil water with the included container and can't actually be used as a stove with other pots, pans or containers. Seems very restrictive.

I'd just take my aeropress, a regular one burner stove and whatever pots/pans I was bringing anyway. The aeropress takes 30 seconds to make coffee, so making for multiple people is not really going to take any longer than it takes to boil the same quantity of water in a percolator. The aeropress can also make a decent faux-espresso if you're into them.

Or make cold-brew extract ahead of time and just dump that into hot water as needed.

Whisperlite and a thermos-french press, especially when backpacking.

Car camping, I use the same french press, but usually use the trusty old Coleman cooking stove.

I just looked up the Aeropress and like that idea a lot more than a regular french press. It seems less messy.
I have to take issue with T.G. on the 30 seconds though. I count the time from turning on the burner to sipping that first wonderful, glorious, life bringing, eye opening, fog clearing sip. Then, with a french press, you have to clean it all out to get the next press going.
I still use my french press from time to time. With my wife and me it takes a full four mugs to start us going. She doesn't even get up without a mug in her hand.

I actually covered that when I said boiling the water and such all took the same amount of time.

If you use the "inverted power method" then it's about a 1-1:30 brewing times. Clean up is still the same though - just a few seconds.

Both make great coffee.

In fact, I like to use my 14 cup in the cabin up north over most other methods.

Peace of the Lord be with you.


This is the way to go, I think. I use this method and love it. I also have the big one because I can drink a pot to myself, especially when camping.

As much as I like gadgets, Jetboil, in my research, just seems too much like a one trick pony. Proprietary stuff annoys me.
As far as coffee is concerned, I would rather pack a pound of coffee than er... a lot of stuff.

And I would pleasantly smirk while drinking kick-arse coffee, Dave. So.... Nyah. I'd still give you some, though. Maybe.

I LOVE my Jetboil. I don't have the coffee press accessory yet but with it you can boil water, add your coffee, then press it just like a french press. The water boils quick. I've used it to brew up some instant coffee, the cappuccino packs out of MREs, and hot teas. I've also used it for oatmeal and ramen soup cups.

With the metal bracket in the top right of this picture you can use different pots/pans. The triangle piece in the bottom right attaches to the bottom of the fuel can to stabilize the entire system. Everything in the picture will pack down into the cup from the zig zag part up. The fuel can pictured will fit in this model, the larger fuel cans can still be used but will not inside the cup for packing. The make different size and color Jetboils.

If you're willing to spend the money on it, retail on this one is right at $100, I highly recommend it for any outdoor excursions you may go on.
