How do you make coffee when camping?
Fill your pot with about six cups of water and bring it to a scalding boil (this can be done over a campfire). Remove the pot from the heat and add a half cup (about two handfuls) of freshly ground coffee. Stir, cover and steep for three minutes then add a tiny splash of cold water, which settles the grounds.
How do you make coffee without camping fire?
Here’s the process;
- First, fill your kettle with water and boil it on a heat source.
- Remove the kettle once the water is heated.
- Let it cool for a few minutes.
- Little foam of coffee exposes over the coffee.
- When the grounds are deposited to the bottom, pour the coffee into your container, and enjoy!
Can you make coffee over a campfire?
Place the pot on the campfire and bring the water to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons of coffee to your pot for every 8 ounces of water that your pot will hold. Stir the grounds in the water thoroughly. Allow the pot with the coffee to sit for 2 minutes.
What’s the best way to make coffee at home?
Of all the manual coffee methods, it’s the most user-friendly: Just add hot water to ground coffee and stir. After a few minutes, plunge the filter down to separate the grounds from the coffee. The resulting cuppa joe is fuller bodied than an average filter coffee, which is one reason people prefer this method.
How long does camp coffee last?
Once opened keep refrigerated and use within 28 days.
How do you make coffee camping without electricity?
The French press is probably the easiest way, just add some medium ground coffee on the bottom of your French pot, add boiling water over the grinds, and stir a few times. Screw in the lid but push the plunger only to the liquid’s surface. After 4-5 minutes slowly push the plunger to the bottom. Your coffee is done.
How do you make instant coffee?
Mix 2 teaspoons of instant coffee with 1⁄2 cup (120 mL) of hot water. Heat the water in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Stir the coffee and hot water together until the coffee granules are dissolved. Mix your coffee in the glass you want to drink from or in a separate cup.
How long does it take to make coffee over a fire?
When it’s boiling, move the pot to the edge of the fire or turn down the heat to low. Allow the coffee to percolate slowly for at least 5-10 minutes. Remember the longer you percolate it, the stronger the coffee will be.
How do you make campfire coffee with eggs?
Bring a campfire kettle full of water to a boil. In a bowl, mix eggs (shells and all), coffee, salt and 1 cup water. Pour into the boiling water and let sit for a few minutes. Pour in 1 cup of cold water and when coffee granules and eggs rise to the top the coffee is clarified, it’s ready.

7 Ways To Make Incredible Camping Coffee
There’s something amazing, even transforming, about that first cup of coffee in the morning, especially on a chilly, early morning when sitting by the campfire with your friends. As part of our ongoing endeavor to improve the art of brewing camping coffee, we’ve tested with nearly every technique now available. It’s a process that we thoroughly love, so we wanted to share seven of the methods we’ve discovered for making amazing camping coffee with you.
First, The 3 Cardinal Rules to Brewing Camp Coffee
For producing excellent camping coffee, there are three fundamental criteria that are nearly universally followed:
- The old cliché “you get what you pay for” is never more accurate than when it comes to coffee, and the good news is that brewing your own will never be as expensive as buying coffee from a drive-thru.
- The best method is to utilize whole beans that are ground soon before ingestion.
- Not everyone enjoys the convenience of carrying along a coffee grinder. Nevertheless, the flavor of coffee declines when it is exposed to air, and because ground coffee has greater surface area exposed to air, it degrades at a quicker pace than whole coffee. In that case, if you are able to, and if you have the room for a hand grinder such as the Porlex Mini (more on that below), we highly suggest it.
- Do not, under any circumstances, do this step. A temperature of 200 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal for brewing coffee. If the coffee is boiled (212 degrees Fahrenheit depending on elevation), especially for an extended period of time, it will develop a burned flavor.
Don’t even think about it. Seriously. A temperature of 200 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal for brewing coffee. If the coffee is boiled (212 degrees Fahrenheit depending on elevation), especially for an extended period of time, it will develop a burned flavor.
Cowboy Camping Coffee
Since the Boston Tea Party in 1773, coffee has been considered a mainstay of American culture and history. The pioneers who trekked the wilds of early America took coffee with them, valuing it as highly as they did tobacco and whiskey. As the new world extended westward, the pioneers brought coffee with them as well. Whenever they paused to set up camp, coffee provided the necessary boost to get them started on the next day’s expedition. When it came to making camp coffee, they went with a basic approach that wasn’t complicated by all of the gadgetry we’ve come to know (and like) in contemporary life.

The pioneers who trekked the wilds of early America took coffee with them, valuing it as highly as they did tobacco and whiskey. As the new world extended westward, the pioneers brought coffee with them. Coffee provided the boost they needed to get going on the next day’s trip whenever they paused to set up camp. When it came to making camp coffee, they went with a basic approach that wasn’t complicated by all of the gadgetry we’ve come to know (and enjoy) in contemporary living. In time, when the west was colonized and ranchers established themselves throughout the plains, the cowboys who herded cattle and slept out under the stars each night continued to find consolation in a daily cup of camp coffee.
How to Make Cowboy Camping Coffee
- Create a heat source for your home. Fill your camping coffee pot halfway with COLD water. 1 heaping spoonful of coarse ground coffee per 12 cups water is the ratio to use. Optional: Adding an egg shell or two from breakfast to the stew is also customary in order to give the dish more substance. This is something that John Steinbeck mentions in his novel “Travels with Charley.” Cook over medium heat until the ideal brewing temperature is reached. Keep in mind that if you’re cooking over an open fire, the cooking time will almost certainly take longer due to the unpredictability of the heat. Because you are unlikely to have a thermometer to determine when the water has reached the ideal 200-205 degrees, we recommend that you monitor the water attentively and remove it from the heat at the first symptoms of boiling – DO NOT allow it to get to a rolling boil. After removing the pan from the heat, add a shot (1oz or so) of cold water and allowing the grounds to settle (this normally takes 5 minutes or so)
- Pour some wine and relax! Similarly to the frontiersmen and cowboys who came before you.
Remove the grounds (which are biodegradable) from the bottom of the pot and wash your camping coffee pot, and you’re finished. This is arguably the second most straightforward technique of cleaning up after a camping coffee session (behind instant).
Percolator Camping Coffee
I can remember going on camping excursions with my grandparents in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California when I was a kid, and it was a wonderful experience. I recall my grandpa making his daily cup of coffee in an old enamel percolator over his vintage Coleman gas burner every morning before the sun came up. It was a tradition for him. Even now, as I crawl out of our tents, I can almost smell the lovely perfume that filled the campsite while we slept soundly in our sleeping bags.
When not completed properly, it has the tendency to be a little dry and bitter, which is reminiscent of the era in which they were born and raised.
- *Coletti 9-cup stainless steel percolator
- A favorite coarse ground coffee
- A camping coffee mug Heat Source – hot coals from a campfire may be used with this approach as well, although a regular camping stove is recommended for constancy of heat.
How to Make Percolator Camping Coffee
- Removing the percolator equipment and filling it with cold water is recommended. Replace the percolator equipment in its original location. Optional: It is possible to moisten and place a disc filter into the grinds basket at this stage if you so want. Fill the grounds basket halfway with coarse ground coffee (we recommend 1 heaping spoonful per cup of water), install the grounds cover, and seal the top – ensuring care to align the siphon stem with the sight-glass before closing the lid. Medium-heat should be applied until the first apparent eruption of water via the siphon can be seen in the sight-glass (do not breach cardinal rule2! )
- We’ve found that 10 minutes is an adequate brewing time with this approach, so reduce the heat (or remove it from the fire) and allow it to splutter. Once the coffee has been made to your satisfaction, carefully lift the top and remove the percolator equipment, which will be quite hot
- Pour the coffee into a cup and sip it after a couple of minutes to allow any grinds to settle. Breakfast is best served over an open campfire with bacon and eggs, exactly how grandfather and grandma used to do it.
Clear the grounds (and disc filter if you want to use one) by putting the grounds basket into the garbage, disassembling the percolator equipment (siphon, grounds basket, basket cover), and washing all pieces of the percolator device as well as the pot.
This is without a doubt one of the more challenging techniques of making camping coffee to clean up out of the seven available options. For more information on how to perfect this camping coffee technique, see our in-depth tutorial on how to Master the Art of Using a Camping Coffee Percolator.
Espresso Pot Camping Coffee
When you’re camping, you may find yourself in need of coffee. Perhaps you ascended the Mount Whitney Trail the day before and are feeling the effects of the 6100 feet of elevation gain like a freight train as you descend. Consider the following scenario: it is 4 a.m. and you want to watch the sunrise atop Cadillac Mountain. Alternatively, you could like to spend an hour or so tweaking about your campground. In all of these situations, espresso pot camping coffee is one of the most effective means of delivering coffee.
- Espresso Pot – TheBialetti Moka Express * is the gold standard and has been in use for almost a century, with cup sizes ranging from 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 cups, or GSI offers the highly regardedMini Espresso * in 4 cup and 1 cup variations
- The use of a supplementary pot to boil water – such as the MSR Titan Kettle *
- An all-time favorite medium-ground coffee that falls midway between espresso and course
- Cup for coffee while camping
- For this, you’ll want to utilize your camp stove as a heat source.
How to make Espresso Pot Camping Coffee
- To begin, bring the secondary pot of water to a rolling boil. Fill the bottom chamber of the espresso pot all the way up to the fill line with the water that has just come off the boil. Fill the grounds basket halfway with the grounds and level out the grounds with your finger (do not crush the grounds)
- Screw on the upper chamber (or spout, in the case of the GSI MiniEspresso) once you’ve placed the grounds basket in the bottom chamber. Placing the espresso pot on a low-medium heat (with an emphasis on the low) and waiting for the lovely coffee to begin seeping into the top chamber takes around 6-10 minutes** in our experience. If it’s erupting like a volcano, your heat is too high
- If it’s erupting like a volcano, your heat is too low. If you see the color of the leaking coffee pouring into the top chamber (or cup in the case of the GSI MiniEspresso) changing to a golden honey hue, it’s time to turn off the heat on the espresso pot. Cool water should be poured over the outside of the bottom chamber to stop the brewing**. Taking this step, in conjunction with pre-boiling the water in step 1, can assist to avoid your camping coffee from developing an off-flavor from the pot. Prepare an espresso and experience the thrill of a great camp coffee espresso – or create an Americano by adding 50 percent hot water with the espresso
Cleaning Instructions: Disassemble the top and bottom chambers, remove and dump the grounds basket, rinse, wash with biodegradable soap, rinse again, and then dry. To learn more about how to make espresso while camping, be sure to read our in-depth article on how to Master the Art of Using a Camping Espresso Maker for additional information.
Instant Camping Coffee (OR Steeped Camp Coffee)
There are times when the energy just isn’t there, and when all of the bother and accessories that go into making amazing camping coffee seem much too tough to manage. Some booze the night before, it being a little too cold outside the sleeping bag, or perhaps you’re simply feeling sluggish on this particular day. That’s fine; instant camping coffee will help you get through the rest of your day with ease. Fortunately, it’s now far more tasty than it was previously!
- Using the heat source, bring the pot to a simmer, just bringing it to a boil (again, 200-205 degrees F is ideal)
- Remove the lid of the instant coffee package and pour the amount of coffee you desire into your camping cup or mugs. Our preference is for robust coffee, and we’ve found that one entire packet to two glasses of water is exactly great for us. Pour in the water, mix, leave it sit for a minute, then stir one more, and you’re finished! ** If you’re making steeped coffee, we recommend adding the steeping bags to the hot water in your camping cup and leaving them to steep for 5-6 minutes for a delicious strong brew
- If you’re making tea, we recommend adding the steeping bags to the hot water in your camping mug. Enjoy
Dispose of the package or steeping bag and you’re finished!
Pour Over Camping Coffee
The pour over method, which is second only to the instant method in terms of simplicity and speed, is one of the most straightforward and fastest ways to prepare an outstanding cup of camping coffee. Additionally, it is excellent for brewing coffee for big gatherings – assuming that you have a large enough camping carafe to hold it all. This technique is hypnotic and almost meditative when done correctly, and the outcome is an amazing cup of camp coffee.
- Make sure everything is assembled (in this example, the GSI Javadrip) and place the pour over dripper onto your camping mug or carafe
- Start by bringing your water up to an optimum near-boiling temperature. When water has reached the desired temperature, soak the filter and insert it in the dripper. Fill the dripper halfway with water and gently tap the dripper to level off the grinds
- Repeat with another cup of water. Remove your water from the heat and, starting at the outside edge of the grounds and working your way in a spiral towards the center, carefully pour roughly a 14 cup (or just enough to moisten the grounds) of water over the grounds
- Wait around 30 seconds and then gaze contemplatively at the sun coming up just over the trees in the distance, taking in the incredible beauty of these wilds. Now begin carefully pouring the remaining of the water into the container, starting in the middle and spiraling outward to the edge and back again into the center – this will assist to rotate the grounds more evenly. Take a while to let the waterline to drop to a level that is just above that of the ground, then repeat the process two more times, pouring roughly one-third of your water each time
- Remove the dripper and enjoy your camping coffee in a zen-like state of delicious euphoria as the morning fire crackles and the creek boils in the background (or prepare for the kid(s) to wake up and wreck havoc on your morning)
- Remove the dripper and enjoy your camping coffee in a zen-like state of delicious euphoria as the morning fire crackles and the creek boils in the background
Cleaning Instructions: Remove the four biodegradable filters containing grinds and dispose of them in the garbage, rinse and wash the dripper with biodegradable soap, rinse and wash again, dry, and you are finished.
French Press Camping Coffee
Camping coffee made with a French press has a special place in our hearts. Throughout our second and most exciting journey across the American West, we relied on this approach to serve hundreds of excellent and often desperately needed cups of coffee every day. Our first experience with genuine coffee was also our first introduction to a world outside of the drab machines that decorated our parents’ kitchens on a regular basis as children. As a result, our French Press camping coffee absorbed all of the excitement, adventure, and thrill of our voyage and that period of our life.
- It’s best to use a French press for camping coffee – theGSI JavaPress * works well because it’s tiny, inexpensive, and comes with its own koozie to keep that black gold nice and hot
- A pot to boil water (for 1-2 people, an MSR Titan Kettle * will suffice)
- Coffee with a medium grind
- Mug for acamping
- Anything that causes water to boil is considered a heat source.
How to Make French Press Camping Coffee
- Bring water to a near-boiling temperature if needed
- Take the plunger out of the French Press and set it aside. Prepare your French Press by adding medium ground coffee in a ratio of 1.5 teaspoons per cup of water to the brew chamber
- Set aside. Using a gentle swirl, slowly add the necessary amount of water and mix for around 10-15 seconds
- Insert the press plunger back into the machine and let it to rest slightly above the water or ground. To brew, let it sit for around 4 minutes (we’ve found that this is a decent length of time for us, but you may change it to your preference)
- To extract the coffee grounds from the coffee, apply gentle downward pressure to the plunger for around 10-15 seconds to “press” the grounds out of the coffee
- Once the press is squeezed to the bottom (with the plugger in place), you’ll be ready to pour a lovely cup of french press camp coffee.
Taking Down:This is one of the more time-consuming techniques of taking down, mostly due to the fact that the grinds become embedded in the mesh plunger over time.
Discard grinds from the brew chamber and rinse the brew chamber and plunger completely with biodegradable soap and water, repeat the rinse process, and dry the brew chamber and plunger after each use.
Aeropress Camping Coffee
The Aeropress has quickly become our preferred way of preparing our camping coffee, to the point that it has earned a spot on our Top 10 List of Truck Camping Gear and Accessories! We have enjoyed and continue to love each of the ways covered in this post; nevertheless, there are multiple reasons why Aeropress is our method of choice for the following reasons: The brew is very flexible – everything from a gentle morning brew to a rich espresso is doable; it’s quite compact because everything (including our Porlex grinder) nests together; and, because to the air-gap procedure in the press, clean-up is a breeze!
It’s also a very reasonable price!
- Aeropress * – we recommend that you get the kit that includes the storage bag because there are various pieces and this provides a simple method to keep everything organized
- The plunger, brew chamber, and filter basket are the three basic components of the system.
- Filters for the Aeropress (included in the set) – while they do makemesh reusable filters *, we prefer the biodegradable filters because they retain more water in the brewing chamber. coffee that has been ground to a medium fineness Pot to boil water in (for 1-2 people, an MSR Titan Kettle * will suffice)
- Cup for coffee while camping
- Source of heat – anything that can bring water to a boil will suffice. Optional: A grinder such as thePorlex Mini Grinder * is well suited for this procedure since it is very customizable and of excellent quality (**Note** Make sure you get the most recent model of the Porlex Mini because they made a substantial modification to the handle attachment-point design)
How to make Aeropress Camping Coffee
- Heat water to the required temperature (200-205 degrees Fahrenheit, or slightly below the boiling point)
- Place the filter in the filter basket and secure the basket to the brew chamber. Place your camping cup on top of the brew chamber/filter basket that has been built. Pour in medium-fine ground coffee (we use 1-2 teaspoons per cup of water) and stir well. Fill the brew chamber with the water that has just come off the boil
- Allow the mixture to settle and drip for 10-15 seconds after stirring. As the brew chamber drains, top it off with the leftover water. Put in the plunger and slowly lower the pressure until the plunger reaches the bottom (this should take approximately 10 seconds) and you can hear the air pressing through the grounds
- Remove the aeropress from your camping mug and take a sip of your favorite beverage
Clearing the Aeropress: Invert the Aeropress so that the filter basket is facing up, remove the filter basket, then press the grounds and filter into the trash can. After that, simply rinse the plunger, basket, and brew chamber, and you’re finished with the process! (We do wash with biodegradable soap and water every third or fourth use, at the very least. ) To learn more about how to make aeropress coffee while camping, check out our comprehensive guide, Master the Art of Aeropress Coffee While Camping.
We hope that the seven tips we’ve provided will assist you in your quest for the ideal cup of camping coffee on your next outdoor expedition.

Camp cooking: How to make a great cup of coffee
- Cooking is the one thing that makes most camping excursions miserable, aside from mosquitoes and squabbling campers. Excerpt from Ernest Hemingway’s Camping Out, published in the Toronto Daily Star on June 26, 1920. Coffee is a camp staple, and according to Western movie mythology, it’s a simple beverage to make. All you have to do is drop a handful of coffee into a blackened pot filled with water from a local creek and lay it on top of a roaring bonfire beneath a blanket of stars. This is a load of romantic rubbish! Despite the fact that coffee is a fragile and complicated commodity, the flavor of the beverage is directly impacted by a wide range of variables. It should be constructed with care and attention to detail. Although a decent cup of coffee may still be made over a campfire, most campers these days choose to brew their coffee (and cook their meals) on a propane or liquid fuel stove, which are efficient and dependable while also providing even heating and combustion. Chuck-wagon cooking is a historical relic that also serves as a competitive activity. There are a plethora of options for preparing camp coffee. Here are a few pointers on how to make the ideal (or almost perfect) cup of coffee: Beans are a good place to start. Using freshly ground coffee beans allows for a more rapid release of oils, which are at the core of coffee’s delicate and nuanced flavor. Beans may be found practically everywhere that sells bagged coffee, including grocery stores. There are many different types of roasts, but I like a darker roast since it results in a deeper and richer flavor that is not necessarily stronger. Store the beans in an airtight container rather than in the camp ice chest or cooler, as this can cause them to spoil. The presence of moisture will have a detrimental impact. You’ll need a coffee grinder with a hand crank to complete this project. The Javamill ($29.95 from GSI) is a simple, no-frills piece of equipment. As an alternative, Snow Peak sells a stainless-steel version of their Field Barista, which has a comfortable hinged crank handle and retails for $99.95. However, this model is somewhat expensive at $99.95. Both of these models use a ceramic grinding wheel. The fineness with which the beans should be ground is also a matter of personal preference. Although I favor a coarse grind, the prevailing consensus is that the finer the grind, the more oils are liberated and the more strong the flavor of the coffee becomes. A too-fine grind, on the other hand, will result in a bitter brew. (If you don’t have a grinder, you may crush beans by wrapping them in a towel and beating them with a heavy rock.) There are a variety of processes for converting the beans into coffee. Pour-over coffee is my preferred way for making one or two cups. You’ll need a cone, a filter, a cup, and a vessel in which to boil the water for this project. Place the filter in the cone and the cone on top of the cup to complete the assembly. Add the ground beans (three or four tablespoons per cup) to the filter and gently pour in the hot water while the filter is still running. Cones are offered in two materials: ceramic and plastic. I prefer theMelitta1-cup pour-over cone in red since it’s easier to find in my camping gear box than the other colors. Cowboy Coffee is a way of making coffee that is more customary for camping. Using around six cups of water, fill your pot and bring it to a blistering boiling point (this can be done over a campfire). Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in a half cup (approximately two handfuls) of freshly ground coffee until well incorporated. Stir, cover, and steep for three minutes, after which add a little splash of cold water to let the grounds settle down a bit. Another variation on Cowboy Coffee is to combine a half cup of freshly ground coffee with six cups of cold water and bring to a gentle boil over low heat. As soon as the mixture comes to a gentle boil, remove it from the heat for three to four minutes and then stir in a splash of cold water to let the grounds settle down. As a result, the brew is typically quite robust, powerful on western romanticism, but not always pleasant to the palate. A camping percolator also makes a delicious cup of coffee and allows you to enjoy the romanticism of brewing your drink over a campfire, however a cookstove allows you to maintain greater control over the cooking environment while camping. Percolators are available in a variety of sizes at most outdoor merchants as well as internet vendors such as Amazon. The outdoors columnist Gary Garth writes for USA TODAY once a month.
6 Methods to Make the Greatest Coffee When Camping
What is the best way to brew coffee when camping? If you’ve decided to take a last-minute camping vacation to one of these breathtaking national parks, you know that nothing beats a decent cup of coffee in the morning while sitting outside your tent in the great outdoors. As part of our search for the best way to brew coffee while camping, we combed the internet, reading everything from forums and subreddits to blogs and product reviews, in order to discover the most effective techniques and alternatives to instant coffee.
Scroll down to learn about the most common ways to make coffee outside, which are listed in no particular order.
When camping, using a French press is one of the most convenient methods of brewing coffee. When they get out of their tents first thing in the morning, everyone likes the smell of freshly ground coffee! While most French press pots have a glass canister, you should search for a plastic canister that is free of bpa because hiking on the route does not lend itself to maintaining everything in perfect condition.
A camping french press in conjunction with a tiny hand grinder is a winning combination that will never let you down.
When camping or touring, an aeropress is a must-have. Due to the fact that it is ultra-light and composed of the same polycarbonate that is used to make Nalgene bottles, it is almost unbreakable. You can make a simple cup in a matter of minutes: To make tea, fill your mug halfway with grounds and a filter and press on top of it with your hand. Coffee connoisseurs claim that coffee prepared using an Aropress is smoother, more fragrant, and less bitter than coffee made with a drip machine or even a French press.
Pour over drip coffee maker
Pour over drip coffee is still a decent alternative if you’re the only one who drinks coffee and you have limited cleanup capabilities, such as a small kitchen. A folding filter holder is a necessary, however if you don’t have the space to store spent filters in a waste bag, a laser cut stainless steel filter is a good alternative to consider. Stainless steel filters do not absorb the essential oils from coffee beans, unlike paper filters, which allows you to brew a flawlessly clear and tasty cup of coffee every time.
A little single-serve moka pot is a charming, lightweight, and nearly unbreakable travel companion that you can take with you everywhere you go. You may simply place it in or near the fire, or on top of a cast iron pan, to provide the fullest “camping feel” possible. There are a variety of sizes and capacities available, and chances are you’ll find almost-unused ones in charity stores for as little as $3-$5.
Turkish style / Cowboy coffee
A more polished method of brewing coffee than the traditional cowboy method is used in Mid-Eastern countries, although the basic idea is still the same. Make sure you have ground coffee (fine ground for Turkish style, coarse ground for western style), a pot, and cold water ready for this. Turkish coffee is made by stirring coffee grounds into ice-cold water and heating it till frothy but not boiling. After a minute or two of cooling, gently pour the coffee into your cup while leaving the grounds in the pot.
When you reach the coffee grounds at the bottom of your cup, it’s time to stop drinking.
It’s easy to use and effective!
Percolator fans laud the percolator’s hotter, more “strong” coffee, and claim that there is nothing better than percolator coffee when it comes to camping or traveling. It functions in a similar way to a moka pot in that it is simple to use and extremely durable. Here are a few pointers: Use coarser ground coffee to leave less residue in the pot, and resist the temptation to turn up the heat to speed up the water heating process; doing so will overheat the coffee, making it taste burnt and bitter when it is finished.
6 Great Ways To Make Camping Coffee
For the majority of us, a cup of coffee is a must-have first thing in the morning on any camping trip. Even people who do not consume coffee like the aroma of freshly brewed coffee that wafts through a campground. When combined with fried bacon and wood smoke, it creates a scent that can’t be found anyplace else in the world. What is the most efficient method of brewing coffee when camping? That, however, has been the subject of heated dispute among seasoned campers for quite some time. Everyone has a favorite dish or approach, but if you have an open mind and are willing to experiment, here are several you might want to try for your own pleasure.
Cowboy Coffee is a type of coffee that comes from the West. 50 Campfires is the author of this book. Coffee is the recipe type. Camp Cooking is a type of cuisine.
- Coffee maker or kettle
- 2 tablespoons finely ground coffee per 8 ounces of water
- Water (fresh spring water if you have it)
- A large coffee pot or kettle. a source of heat
- Measure the quantity of pure, fresh water that you put into the pot before you start cooking. This is important since you’ll need to know how much money you’re talking about.) The finest water is unfiltered spring water. If you’re not confident about the quality of your water source, use the bottled water you brought along in your cooler instead. Make a fire in the firepit or use whatever heat source you have available to bring the water up to a boil. Turn off the heat and let the pot settle for 30 seconds to a minute to ensure that it has come to a complete stop boiling. The ideal temperature for brewing coffee is exactly 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Note that if you’re camping at an elevation, water boils at lower temperatures, so to ensure you’re at the proper temperature, let the water to come to a full, rolling boil before taking it from the stove.) ***
- Pour two teaspoons of finely ground coffee into the pot for every eight ounces of water you’re using. In a separate bowl, combine the coffee grinds and water. For this purpose, real cowboy chuck wagon cooks used a special wooden spoon that they never cleaned. Allow the saucepan and its contents to settle for two minutes – away from the fire. Once more, stir it well and let it aside for another two minutes. After four minutes of brewing, pour half a cup of cold water over the grounds to cool them down. It does this because “hot rises and cold sinks,” and the grounds, which are now primarily floating on the surface of the water, are drawn down to the bottom of the pot. Using a careful, gentle pouring motion, ensure that all of the coffee grinds remain at the bottom of the pot and that the coffee that you receive in your cup is rich and wonderful.

Tips for Making “Perfect” Camp Coffee
With the exception of percolating, there is no other method that will allow you to truly boil the coffee in the water for any length of time. In comparison to other procedures, the resultant coffee is stronger and is sometimes referred to as “bitter” by certain people. When using the egg coffee technique, the coffee is briefly cooked, but the duration is brief and part of the aim of adding the egg is to reduce bitterness from the coffee. The ideal temperature at which to brew coffee using all other techniques is 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
But keep in mind that as altitude increases, water begins to boil at lower temperatures, which is dangerous.
Coffee to Water RatioBrewing Time
There are two factors that influence the strength of coffee: the amount of coffee grounds to which the water is subjected and the length of time that the water is subjected to the grounds. Your preferred level of strength and darkness in your coffee is a question of personal preference, making the “ideal” cup of coffee very subjective. Generally speaking, 2 teaspoons of ground coffee per 6-8 ounces of water is an appropriate starting point for most brewing systems. Developing the skills to make the ideal cup of coffee requires a lot of trial and error as well as a great deal of taste.
The Right Grind
It is also crucial to maintain consistency in the grind. The finer the grind, the more surface area of the grounds is exposed to the water, increasing the likelihood that the coffee will be stronger and deeper in color. Some techniques, however, may cause coffee grounds to escape into the water if you use a fine enough grind in your coffee. When you take a drink of coffee and finish up with a mouth full of coffee grounds, there are few things more “imperfect.” Yech!
It boils down to this: finer grinds are preferable for techniques that employ a paper filter or collect the grounds like egg coffee. When using strainers or mechanical equipment such as percolating or French pressing, coarser ground coffee performs significantly better.
Fresh Ground vs. Preground
It’s also crucial to maintain consistency in your grind. More surface area of the grounds is exposed to the water with a finer grind, resulting in a stronger, darker cup of coffee. Some techniques, however, may result in coffee grounds escaping into the water if the grind is too fine. When you take a drink of coffee and finish up with a mouthful of coffee grounds, there are few things more “imperfect.” Yech! For techniques that employ a paper filter or collect the grounds, such as egg coffee, you can use finer grinds, in general.
Brand/Type of Coffee
Once again, this is completely subjective and entirely up to you to determine. Purchase and utilize everything you like within your financial constraints. To try something genuinely unique and authentic when it comes to brewing Cowboy Coffee, go online and order a pound of Arbuckles’ Ariosa Coffee, which can be found for a reasonable price. “The Coffee That Won the West,” as they like to call themselves. The Arbuckle brothers came up with the concept of selling pre-roasted coffee beans in one-pound containers shortly after the Civil War ended in 1865.
The Arbuckles’ Ariosa Blend grew so famous in the Old West that most cowboys were unaware that there was a better blend available.

Water percolates (thus the name) through a tube that goes up into a metal basket containing your favorite coffee grinds as it comes to a boil.
Camping in a car, tent camping, or camping on a tight budget are all options.
This method is most effective for making coffee for big groups of people who only have access to a campfire or a camp stove. It’s also a great option for campers who want to pay homage to their coffee-loving forefathers and foremothers.
Percolators are lightweight and portable, and they are simple to clean. Controlling the heat source and optimizing the boil duration, on the other hand, might make this brewing process more difficult to master than alternative procedures.
What you’ll need
- Coffee grounds
- A heat source (such as a camp stove, grill, or campfire)
- A coffee mug
- And a heat source
Using a percolator to make the ideal cup of coffee will take some patience and experience on your part. One of the primary reasons percolators have gone out of favor is the bitter, dry tastes that may be produced when coffee is overdone, as described above. The following is the fundamental procedure for utilizing a percolator:
- Completely fill the percolator with water until it reaches the stated “fill line”
- Coffee should be added to the basket, with a filter used if necessary. Close the lid of the basket
- Using the tube and basket, place them into the pot. Place the pot over a heat source to keep it warm. Immediately after the water begins to boil, turn down the heat source (move closer to the edge of a fire or lower the heat on a stove). Coffee should be allowed to percolate for 5-10 minutes, depending on personal liking. To do this, disconnect the percolator from the heat source. Enjoy
Completely fill the percolator with water to the ‘fill line’ marked on the side. Using a filter if necessary, add the coffee to the basket. The basket’s lid should be secured; Using the tube and basket, place them in the pot. Preheat a large saucepan over a medium-high heat. Immediately after the water begins to boil, turn down the heat source (move closer to the edge of a fire or turn down the heat on a stove).
