  • Coffee & Camping...

    Its time to start planning.

    Next year in April we head off for the lap of Oz and were wondering what to do in regard to decent coffee.

    Its been home roasting and the Sunbeam 6910 machine/grinder combo which were doing pretty well with - but theres no chance it will all fit into the Jayco camper.

    So the question is what to do?...

    We have the stovetop... which is ok... We have a plunger which I am happy to leave behind...

    What have others used when camping? Is there a way of producing excellent coffee in a compact manner?

    Ive been contemplating the same and will be away in a tent for 3 days over the October long weekend.

    There will actually be a coffee cart nearby but just in case Ill be taking my Presso and Aeropress.
    I should be able to power up the EM0450 for grinding.

    My wife actually prefers the Aeropress to my Expobar for her long blacks.

      Hi

      Jill and I regularly go to Wombeyan Caves where we are surveying caves. We take an Ibrik and a plunger. The Ibrik works fine over a Trangia Stove. I just prefer that rich nice thick and sweet coffee from an Ibrik over a plunger after a hard day.

        Scroll down, its one of our sponsor pages, and theyve got pics of the nifty gadget.

        Other than that, personally I think youre doing the best you can with a stove top! : D
        Its great sitting down in the middle of no where, great scenery, sipping down on a lovely coffee isnt it? ahhhhhh "the scerenity" ... hah.

          Yeah might have to check out both those options!

          Im sure the stovetop will do the job, but new toys are always fun...

              I took my Presso camping with me over Easter and it did a great job. Had to use pre-ground-just-before-I-left-home but a good hand grinder would do the job if I had one. All you need is a campfire and something to heat the water in (oh, and some water, which may be tricky depending where you go, dont count on finding too much here in SA :)
