    I wish! The only backup in the house is the waiting-to-be-sold Nespresso. And I couldnt quite bring myself to bust that out again.

    I feel your pain Kelsey.

    Give this a try: Hot water in a small milk jug, add a few heaped spoons of ground coffee. Stir for 15 seconds and then let sit for a minute.
    Scrape off the top and put it in your knock box, pour gently into a cup (leaving the sediment) and you are right to go.

    Ive made 100s of long blacks this way and with a little practice you will get great results. Simple, camp coffee.

    Like Andy said, very easy way to get drinkable coffee.

    If you really want to step the same method up a notch (I prefer this method), bust out your scales and weigh the coffee and water.

    I run 30g of grinds to 250mL (g) water for ease, but Im sure youd be able to find the correct value somewhere for the ideal extraction.
