I love Coffee on the trail. I have tried the following...

1) Percolator
2) French Press
3) One Cup Drip
4) Folgers Singles
5) Mini-Espresso Maker

They all have pros and cons., but I have a hard time making it taste as good as home brewed... then I found washing the scotch out from the night before helps.

What is your favorite trail coffee method?

i make mine similarly. breakfast blend spooned into a round mesh filter that nestles right into my small pot/cup perfectly. add hot water. pull out the filter (w/ grounds) when i think it's strong enough (depends on the day..)

but why would anyone want to ???

i abstain from bacon nowadays.
drink not near as much beer as i used to.

coffee has never let me down,
never slowed me up,
never put extra lbs. on me, or given me a hangover.

i'll not abandon a friend like that.......

I use the MSR mug-mate, kind of like what Kanga uses, but I put the grounds directly in my pot of boiling water, wait till it starts to boil again take it off the flame let it sit a minute to get strong, then pour it through the strainer into my cup, perfect coffee every time. I even use it at home if I'm making just one cup.

I wouldn't want to. :p

I like these:

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51KGJPGGKKL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

You can get them in different blends. Make hot water, put a couple of these in a cup, add hot water and press the pod a few times with a spoon to get out all the good flavor. Use the pod directions for strength and amount - about 2 pods make a good 12 ounce cup of coffee, leaving 4 ounces in a pint to make some grits.

No extra filters, presses, or anything else to screw with. When they are "done" I tear them open and bury the grounds in the duff layer and pack out the paper.

Instant coffee tubes weigh next to nothing.

And I've never had a caffeine headache and have gone weeks without caffeine (and recently, since they told me to check that before I was diagnosed, just to make sure it wasn't an issue.....had me do the same with gluten).

And I am a LNT Trainer.....that's why I don't use grounds. And if I did, I'd bury them just like feces. Actually is very good for the soil. I put them in my staghorn and elkhorn ferns, along with banana peels. Makes them grow like crazy.

Mala. Coffee. I have been known to make some good coffee.

For 10 years I made cowboy coffee at TDs. one year I made 60 gallons in 5 days.

But I did not make any this year and everyone lived, I think.

It sure was nice to wake up at dawn and roll over and go back to sleep for an hour.

Yeah me too.
Keep it simple.
I've been drinking instant now for about 8 years and have discovered that Nescafe is better than most of the others.

The other day, I was in a restaurant that is supposedly known for it's good coffee.
It tasted strange, too strong and a bit burnt to me.

So, a taste can be acquired for almost anything.

I am not one of those who can tell which side of the tree a bean was grown on. I am pretty much the type who can tell the difference between coffee and tea so my opinion is suspect.

I just use instant coffee, especially if I have those handy little packets that you just pour into the cup. Also a fan of the non dairy creamer packets and either artificial sweetener or even sugar packets. Some asian marketes sell an all in one packet that is handy but a bit light on creamer.

Now that I have caused brain hemorrhages in the true coffee afficianados...

My other methods of coffee on the trail include a handy little Snow Peak titanium french press and any handy ground coffee, plus said accompaniments.

I have also tried one of those tiny Espresso makers but could never get it to work properly with a camp stove. I can barely make a full size one work at home on the range.

About the only coffee I won't drink is those brown mystery packets from MRE's. On occasion I will get a packet or two that could be used to peel the enamel off my teeth or to remove barnacles from a battle ship. Nasty stuff. Otherwise instant is OK by me.

Just my opinions,

Jim Henderson

lack of caffeine will slow my initial morning pace.

when the two of us hit the trail, i'm the one carrying the,
sven saw.
water filter.
alcohol fuel.
beer can stove.
among other things.
still am well below 20% of my body weight as far as pack weight.
the infinitesimal weight of 4-5 days worth of coffee barely moves the needle on the scale.

never had a caffeine headache.

but.......can't say that about other distilled liquids.

There ain't nothin like those little french press coffee travel mugs made by a lot of different companies, like REI, and they double as plain old mugs, cups, bowls, whatever the hell other reason, who cares?, they make great coffee.

At work we were issued fireproof safes for important data, bless our management's heart, but since all my data's digital I only keep my chicory blend and FP mug in the safe. When I leave home for a biz trip there's a FP in my suitcase. On an overnite hike or more there's one in my pack.

Then if you're carrying roasted ground pure coffee you are carrying way too much weight. All the chicory blends recommend using 1/2 to 1/4 the amount compared to pure coffee. That gives a pure dark roast tasting smooth totally non-bitter hot drink that'll get you up and moving and jonesing for another cup.

Need more caffeine? Some loose leaf black tea in a ziplock made extra strong then poured into a Powerade/Gatoraid bottle and diluted with cold spring water will get your head into the game and your bones ready to move down the trail.

Works for me, that's all I can say.

I've tried the press in the cup and etc., but always come back to instant Nescafe Tasters Choice. I signed up for the samples Thanks! At home I grind beans and do it up big. On the trail I don't like carrying anything extra even if it is so light. Just give me my cofee, man . . . ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I have a one cup thing; the nice thing is it fit my 32oz insulted mug! As I ususally car camp I have milk or instant milk to add. I also can as the day goes on iceit down and drink it that way (yeah, I know that is equal to the I quit statements made earlier) Iwill drink it hot at breakfast cold the rest of the day. Theonly issue I have is I need to figure the right amountof coffee to put in to make the perfecct cup. Oh yeah; I hate instant coffee; it is worst than my worst cup of single brew coffee!

Youre doin it wrong. You dont need to figure out who much coffee to put in the cup, you figure out how much water goes into the coffee.

Somewhere SGT Rock posted that he made a coffee bag from some leftover mosquito netting. Soon after, i spotted some organza wedding favor bags at a "dollar store." I know you guys don't spend a LOT of time going through wedding parphenalia, but these little bags are 5 or 6 to a pack, so about $.20/bag. I finally tried dumping a measure of coffee grounds into a bag, pulling the drawstring tight and letting it sit in hot water. Wow, coffee! Easy, lightweight, cheap, compact. Yea!

Yes; but the mug only will hold 32 ozs therefore I need to figure the coffee; the water is fixed at 32 ozs if I want a full mug,WHICH I DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

32 oz is not a mug. It's a belly washer. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

MY typical mug is 128oz, that's 1 US Gallon. Needless to say I keep an eye open for convenient rest stops.

I had a 32 oz mug way back when those insulated mugs first started to sell at gas stations in the 80s. Over time they have gotten bigger. MY biggest but not practical is a 2 gallon by Coleman. Really a jug, but it has a handle and looks like a mug. I won the "Who has the biggest mug" contest at work with that one.

But, for coffee, I just use my 52oz insulated mug. I think it is called a Bubba Keg.

Well you'd have to have a truck to haul that much coffee.

That mug is so big it might need baffles to keep it from tipping over a vehicle around sharp curves.

YES, I use it to pickup my coffee. F250 4x4 supercab longbed, weighs 7,800# and gets 10mpg, oh joy. Worth it when ya gotta get coffee.

And that picture of the mug is the Bubba Keg. I have orange and black versions. A plus to using the Bubba Keg at 7-11 is that they charge you for a regular coffee. If yous use a thermos, even though it is smaller, only 32 oz, they charge you more for the Thermos.

When I live in Southwestern Kansas; the hospital took over the local heath club/gym. The Hospital Administrator made the remark that they had to do something becasuse the local Natural Gas Field hands had Mugs bigger than the weights the Physical Therapy Dept had. It was a local joke in that most of those guys carried half gallon to gallon mugs; but then again when you figure that if you broke down you had a hour to two wait for help depending on where you were.
