Hey everyone! It's nice to start the day with a warm pick me up. Typically when camping I use an instant coffee for the ease of use, speed, low weight and space.
Does anyone have a favorite type/brand of instant coffee and for those that believe that instant coffee is a crime and I should be locked up, how do you prepare your morning drink?
I have tried them all, espresso pot, french press, coffee pot, ect. By chanch a came across something called a MyJo. small and compact it uses K-cup pods. If your againstthe use of K-cups use the screened K-cup that comes with and use your oun ground coffee. I camp from a motorcycle and space on the bike is a premium and the MyJo has been my best find yet for a GREAT cup of coffee. Paid $13.00 for mine over 2 years ago and it still works like new.
Trader Joes Instant Coffee packs for the win! You get 10 for about $2, and they have creamer and sugar already included. My boyfriend is a black coffee drink and he still loves this stuff! Lightweight for backpacking and I always keep a box in my camping bin!
I'm all about the Starbucks VIA packets for long trips - especially when I've got cold water around for an iced coffee. If I'm glamping and want the real deal my lil AreoPress is my go-to.
My only two extras I take with me on every overnighter, one night or a dozen; my old 7+ year old Kelty camp chair and my Snow Peak Titanium Press. Together they add up to maybe 12 ounces of pure unadulterated happiness. The chair I roll around my tent to protect it and keeps me from sitting/kneeling in the dirt or on an uncomfortable log/rock and the Snow Peak gives me two steaming cups of coffee every morning while I'm sitting in it, summer or winter. Two heaping teaspoons of a strong coffee and you are ready to go, and the grounds get buried with the morning doodie. BINGO!
