Coffee Makers For Camping

By Danielle Russell

Many people see camping as the perfect opportunity to have fun and relax. It can put you closer to Mother Nature and it can allow you the opportunity to really enjoy the outdoors. You can find many ways to spend your time, whether you really like to swim, fish, or have some quiet time alone. But, just because you enjoy being outdoors doesn't mean you have to deprive yourself of your beloved coffee. Believe it or not, you can have a perfect cup of coffee even while you are camping.

There are many coffee makers that are specifically designed with the camper in mind. There is a large variety available, and they come in different cup sizes. The decision is usually based on the number of people who drink coffee going on the trip, and also on the amount of space you can allow for your coffee pot when you pack. Most people choose a manual drip coffee maker for camping trips, since all they have to do is pour boiling water on the filter without worrying about electricity. The filter sits in a holder and you just set the holder over your cup or mug. Some types might require to be set on a portable stove or on the ashes of a fire to heat the water. There are even some automatic drip coffee makers that have been designed for the camper who really wants that added convenience. These models are quite large and are not for the camper who is going to hike 10 miles for the perfect spot. And they need a camp stove to work.

You might want to choose a manual drip coffee maker instead. These come in a large assortment of shapes and sizes but are made to withstand uneven campfire heat. Some of the high end ones are made of stainless steel and they are all-inclusive. They usually look like one coffee pot set upside down on another. You usually place the coffee in the middle and the water in the bottom compartment of the machine. You let it reach a boil and then remove it from the heat, flip it over and set it somewhere to cool off. The flipping process lets the water slowly drain through the coffee grounds resulting in freshly brewed coffee for everyone.

The filter holder method works well also. You place a filter inside a filter holder and fill it with coffee grains. Place the filter with the coffee over top of a mug or pot, and then add boiling water which you will pour over the filter. This is a great method for someone with limited packing space or for someone who doesn't need to make a large quantity of coffee.

If you ask an experienced camper or visit a specialized camping store, you will be able to find out which type of coffee maker might be the best for your next camping trip. You can choose from a large variety. Retail stores usually have a camping aisle so you can browse around next time you are doing some shopping there.
