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?
Aeropress FTW. It makes fantastic coffee, quick and easy cleanup. I typically buy fresh ground coffee from a local shop on the way to the trailhead. Good for car camp or even 3-4 night backpacking trip. Pack the grounds in/out.
We use the large REI brand insulated press for car camping. Makes great coffee and we each have 2 mugs before it gets cold.
I use VIA when backpacking because I only get one cup in the morning.
same here! lol, I absolutely need my 2 mugs of via, before I do my final packing!
Miss-counting my coffees could ruin my trip!
I bring my little grinder from REI for a sandwich-bag full of coffee beans. I have my little metal filter from REI for my ground coffee and hot water. So easy. Probably not more than 4-5 ounces of equipment and grinder easily folds up to slip in my day pack. Try it!!
@Philreedshikes you don't want to start a cattle stampede! 😉
Maybe I do, maybe I don’t. 🤣🤣🤣
