So, I just got back from a 4 day camping trip in Algonquin park, and it was all around a great time. I've been camping for a great many years, and something that is still in a state of evolution is camping coffee.

I love coffee. It tastes delicious, and I love just having that hot beverage in the morning while you're waking up and chatting with everyone else. In the past, I had used instant coffee, but being the coffee lover that I am, it just wasn't satisfying me. I've been trying out various methods, and have gotten to a state of coffee which I am fairly content with.

Camping Coffee

  • coffee
  • instant milk powder
  • sugar
First off, fill whatever drinking mug you have with your water, and dump that into a pot. Bring that to a boil, and add one heaping tablespoon of medium ground coffee for every cup of water. Let that boil for a couple minutes, about 5 minutes or so, until it frothes up a bit. Take your pot off the heat, and let it stand for another 5 minutes or so. Really, since this is camping, you aren't going to have a watch or clock, so just kind of guess how long.

Take a piece of paper towel, fold it over twice and open up one corner. This is your coffee filter. Put this into your mug, and pour your coffee into the filter, let it strain through, and then add your milk powder and sugar as you like your coffee.

Sit back and enjoy the sunrise!
