We like the Folger tea bag coffees because of light weight, cost and easy to prepare. But if you like a dark rich brew quick and easy but not cheap. Try the Starbucks VIA microground coffees.
Outstanding!

I have to agree with the Starbucks Via coffee. First time I had it was the last trip in June and it was great.

For me, the weight of a percolating coffee pot is well worth it! It seems that most of my trips revolve around the campfire and the coffee pot, so well worth the weight and space!

My wife and I both the Starbucks Via packets very easy to prepare and great tasting. We use them a lot on backpacking trips.

Another VIA fan here. Good coffee without any mess.

I used to use the coffee bags, but have found that the VIA is better and simpler. I also use the Folgers brand as well as VIA - it's a little cheaper and good too.

x3 for me! You can make it however dark or light you like it. And there is always a pot brewing!

from a self admitting coffee snob there is only one answer for coffee on the backwoods trip. The picture is what we use for a group I have a single "funnel" that i use for solo's

Totally agree on the percolator! Nothing beats the taste of percolated coffee! I usually buy an assortment of different flavor packs from Super One that are pre-made for a pot. Maybe Camerons? It's like 3 packs for $3.00, I think. You can easily fit them inside the percolator for transport.

I may have to try the Starbucks VIA in the future, thanks for the tip :)

I have the GSI java press I have used for a couple years. This year I picked up the French press attachment for my jet boil in an effort to cut down on space. I love both of them and real coffee is a must for me.

Agree. One of my night before stops is Caribou for coarse ground coffee for the press.
