It’s just about a golden age for camp espresso. We’ve used nearly every thing right here at AJ gear/tenting meals HQ. Our newest discover is Steeped, like a tea bag for espresso that tastes much better than anticipated. Kinda excellent for backpacking. However we additionally love Starbucks Through packets. Then once more, Maxim immediate is simply nearly as good. And cheaper. Equator espresso, in Northern California is now making immediate espresso too, and jeez, it’s like bringing a barista into camp.
Single-use pour over packets are all over the place now too. Copper Cow makes nice espresso. Kuju does too. Libra Pourtables are superior. There are most likely 15 different new manufacturers we haven’t tried but. These are a bit on the finicky aspect, however you get a fantastic brew. If in case you have your personal backcountry pleasant pour-over cone (we love the Sea to Summit X-Brew), you don’t have to take care of the additional trash of a paper single-use pour-over bag both.
Present favourite: French press with MSR’s very good Windburner cooking pot setup.
Wanna nerd out and convey an Aeropress into the backcountry? We’ve performed that too. Even bringing a hand-cranked burr grinder that matches within the Aeropress’s syringe-like physique. There’s nothing fairly like fresh-ground espresso at camp, however there’s additionally nothing like simply dumping a packet of immediate in some boiling water and being performed with it. Heck, we’re not above a bit of cowboy espresso too, in a pinch, like when forgetting the Aeropress however bringing floor espresso. If it labored for our grandparents, it’s ok for us. Kinda.
Camp espresso could be a sensitive topic when on the market with buddies. Some individuals will drink just about any scorching, vaguely brown beverage within the morning, others will fastidiously weigh to the gram the quantity of espresso they pack for a cafe-like pour-over tentside.
What about you? What’s your camp espresso jam?
