    Not sure many here will agree with his method, he certainly knows how to get his message across.

    He should have entered the WBC in Boston... "keeping it real with cowboy coffee".

    Horseshoe or an egg to settle the grounds? I need to try that.

    I was also hoping he would roast it on the fire too (not use a bucket of Folgers)

    It looks like a variation of Turkish coffee, American style. It would be interesting to taste.

    The albumin in the egg white reacts with the coffee polyphenols forming an insoluble complex which falls out. Same reason adding milk reduces the astringency of coffee (different protein, similar effect).

    Its fine when out bush, used a similar technique back when we did a lot of camping, certainly better than no coffee at all.

    Like all brews, it's palatability depends very much on the quality of beans used.

    How to make cowboy coffee.

    Going to start with damper first and then move on to cowboy coffee and later massaman curry.

    Double the chilli in the Massaman, it will improve the cowboy coffee.

    (great looking damper too!)

    Well timed post by Yelta.

    Our impromptu camp fire and spot light came out of a friend's car breaking down the day they were to go on a caravan trip down south. Called for a camp fire and camp out on their property until the car was fixed a few days later.

    Always double the chilli Andy :-D

    I watched all the kids cook their damper various ways and then cooked mine in foil and on hot stones on side of fire patiently waiting...
    Then after all that I smothered it with butter and honey. It's good to have some crunchy edges.

    In the end I had earl grey tea as the lady nearest the beans had already left the house.
