Mmmm, the smell of coffee in the morning almost equals the smell of fresh mountain air on a crisp early morning. It is invigorating and refreshing, to say the least. While you are outdoors camping, there’s no reason that you shouldn’t have a fresh cup of coffee before you start your day. There are many types of camping coffee makers that are available from percolators to timed automatic makers. Some outdoor enthusiasts would rather just bring some instant coffee along, though others simply feel that instant will just not be good enough.
There are various manufacturers that carry camping coffee makers. Coleman makes almost every camping product and they do make a stovetop coffee maker, as well. It sits right on top of the camp stove and brews ground coffee quickly so you won’t have to wait long. Once the coffee is brewed, however, it will not stay hot unless you put it directly into a thermos.
Another type of available coffee maker for outdoors sports activities is the French press. Simple to use and convenient because of the small size, you just add some course coffee grounds and hot water. Within about four minutes or so, just press the grounds all the way to the bottom and enjoy an excellent cup of coffee. There are options available with two cups that stack inside each other for sharing the morning coffee experience.
You can buy the Mugmate Coffee Filter and have coffee in any standard mug in minutes. The lightweight feature is a bonus when hiking and backpacking because it only weighs about an ounce. Whether you are on a camping or backpacking trip, it is so compact that it will not add much to the load. There is an espresso maker made for the stovetop while camping also. It is lightweight, durable and makes wonderful espresso in just a few minutes.
