Fill the percolating pot with some freshly ground at home beans. Slowly percolate the coffee for about 10 min.

Start heating water on the stove. Empty contents of 2 packets of VIA Italian Roast coffee into an insulated mug. Settle into a Flex Lite chair to watch the sun rise and slowly burn through the white horses. Halfheartedly continue work on a crossword puzzle. Pour 12 oz of hot water into the mug. Cover and give a slight swirl. Sip. Savor the silence and the sunrise.

Not a coffee drinker myself...but hubby is. Whether he is on the trail or at home, he always makes his coffee using a Costa Rican coffee sock. It is just a cotton/flannel 4 inch long 'sock' that has a wire rim and little wire handle. Just add a scoop of coffee, set it across the rim of the pot or mug and slowly pour hot water over it.

Doing this, but reaching down to the stove without leaving the hammock.

Am a coffee snob. I do one of the following:

GSI French Press (32oz)

Pre-grind and vacuum seal beans, add hot water, stir, let sit for 4 minutes, plunge, pour.

Snow Peak dripper

Pre-grind and vacuum seal beans, heat water in kettle, place filter in dripper (I used a V60 filter, a Melitta #4 would work I think), pour water in slow spiral motion to proper amount (I just fill the kettle with what I need)

French press is easier because I don't need the kettle for the smaller controlled pour and it doesn't involve filters, clean-up is easy. But I think the dripper tastes better. Enjoy both.

Yes, pretty much same! We use either Starbucks VIA Italian Roast or Alpine Start Original Blend...and I am definitely in my Flex Lite chair as I get that water ready in the A.M., doing my best to wake up!

I've always done the coffee "tea bag" thing, but have never really liked it.

This year, I'm going to try an Aeropress. I love the results in my kitchen - but as we all know the practicality changes in the woods. However, I don't believe the cleanup will be all that bad.

I'll let you know what I find!

Organo Gold packets.

Expensive, but SO. Good.

GSI 32 oz. French Press. Three heaping tablespoons coffee (your favorite), hot water, stir, cover and let sit about 5 minutes. Push the plunger down, pour and enjoy. Repeat as needed!


Safe travels..........

Medaglia D’oro...it is so good I keep some handy at home and I’m a grind and press guy myself. Great in recipes too. More economical than instant packs. Transfer to baggie of course.

GSI Ultralight Java Drip works very well, especially if you use a kettle that is easy to pour from (I use the GSI Stainless Kettle and a Pocket Rocket 2 - with the fuel stabilizer thingy).

I bought Bialetti moka pot from this list and use it now, but our family friend told us about another way to brew coffee in Turkish coffee pot. It's like a metal cup, and you heat the coffee on the stove, but the Turks use a bowl full of hot sand to heat up the coffee pot

French press, Black Rifle coarse ground dark roast, good single malt Scotch Whisky, clear BWCA water. Mix appropriately and enjoy!

Personal preference, very strong with visible oil slick!

I have switched to doing this now for canoe trips. Makes the best, "get going" coffee I have ever had in the backwoods.

For backpacking I still bring the Starbucks Via.

After several different methods of making coffee (percolator, French press, the gold filter)we have settled on this. Works very well!

Now you need to add a Java Presse manual burr grinder; I will be taking this along from now on along with fresh roasted beans from a local guy in St. Paul. The most amazing coffee ever!

I love good coffee as much as the next coffee drinker in line, however, when it comes to the boundary waters, I keep it simple and light. I boil coffee in my cooking pot, add a couple pre-filtered coffee pods by Folders, Maxwell House (take your pick) and stir them around in the hot water til it's darkened to my liking. Easy - packable - convenient and awakening! You can buy the pre-filtered pods at just about any walmart. Usually packs of 10. This is so convenient because it saves you the hassle of having to take up gear space with a perculator or anything else ( french press ) that takes up a bunch of space.

With a large group that like their coffee, I always percolate. I have started bringing a nice dark roast for morning and French roast with chicory for an afternoon pot when needed.
