what's most important to you in a camping coffee maker?
As you learn more about camping coffee tools, you will find that there are both affordable and expensive options. Of course, I believe that a bag of quality coffee beans can solve a lot of problems. So, for the price of coffee utensils, what is more, important is, do you need this type of coffee utensil?
Everyone has a different purpose for camping. Some people like to be simply equipped and purely enjoy the beauty of nature while sipping coffee outdoors. Some people like to have a good time outdoors with friends, and professional camping equipment is especially important. For coffee appliances, some require an open flame, those that require a power source, and those that require nothing at all. So before choosing an appliance, be clear about your needs for this camping trip.
When you're traveling or camping outdoors, you can't avoid a lot of accidents. It is especially important that the coffee utensils we choose are durable and not easily broken. Of course, we need products that are durable and sturdy. This is what we need for camping.
Do you prefer Americano or espresso? Which flavor of coffee do you prefer? When camping, I recommend a portable espresso machine, which would be even better if you can use capsules or ground coffee. Although not comparable to a professional espresso machine, this espresso portable coffee maker can be just as good outdoors, and we can add milk to make a latte of our choice. When it comes to ground coffee, the flavor is a very personal thing and can be purchased to your liking.
I guess, except for the espresso machine which is ready to drink, all other coffee makers need to boil water to make coffee by brewing method now. So, for a steaming cup of coffee, remember to bring along a boiling kettle, and luckily, there are now a good number of portable outdoor stoves where boiling water becomes a particularly simple matter.
Cleaning a coffee maker is a very important thing to do, and it is especially important to clean a simple coffee maker so that your next enjoyment is not compromised. Of course, the ones I recommend can all be easily cleaned. After cleaning, remember to keep the coffee maker dry.
How we brew coffee while camping
Perhaps, deciding which outdoor coffee maker to buy will also involve considering which way you choose to camp. If it's car camping, you'll not only have the ability to bring more tools with you, such as say a kettle, a portable stove top, and the opportunity to rinse the coffee maker with water. If you are opting for backpacking, then a mini espresso machine, coffee capsules, or ground coffee powder would be more suitable for you. Whichever way you choose, I suggest you bring a mug that keeps the water warm or a travel mug.
We all know that camping conditions are limited, so if you prefer brewed coffee, such as a French press pot, bring the water to a boil and let it sit for a minute or so before the water is warm enough to use for brewing.
Those of us who like to make coffee know that you need to preheat your cup before brewing it, to prevent the cup from getting too warm and causing the coffee to become tasteless. So, when boiling water, prepare some extra and a cup of aromatic coffee can be had at any time.
For fresh coffee beans, grind them on-site (portable grinders are available here, click to learn more) to ensure the freshness of the coffee powder. If you don't want the hassle, we can grind the coffee powder in advance and keep it in an airtight jar for a few days without affecting the flavor. Of course, you can also go to buy some tummy-bagged coffee powder and use nitrogen to give it freshness, the freshness date can be longer.
