The Best Coffee For Camping

the best coffee for camping

If you’re a real coffee lover taking all your equipment to the campsite can seem like a bit of a faff when you have already packed your entire house, your kids and dog in to the back of your vehicle. However, going without your morning brew isn’t an option either. So what are the alternatives for getting the best coffee for camping? Well we think we’ve found an alternative to carrying a hand grinder and percolator with you to the campsite.

The Single Origin Coffee Company offer handmade single-serve coffee bags containing the finest freshly ground, single estate / origin coffees from around the world, which are either Rainforest Alliance, UTZ Certified, Fairtrade or certified organic.

We thought we would test it out to see if it really was as good as they claimed, and how easy they would be to use at the campsite. We’ve never been impressed with instant coffee of any description, so we were sceptical and very keen to try it out.

We (naturally) picked the Brazilian Coffee bag to brew and after heating the water on our Biolite stove to just below boiling we added it to our cup. Note: according to coffee connoisseurs putting boiling water on ground coffee can burn it and leave it with a bitter after-taste. The packet instructed us to leave it in for a set time depending on the strength we were after. We love our coffee strong so we left it for the maximum time.

So what was our final verdict? Well, we thought it was the perfect brew and definitely the best coffee for camping we’d ever tasted and certainly something to have in your campervan, camping kitchen or ready bag if you are a coffee lover. We will also be adding it to our ever expanding camping list too. Also, for any glamping businesses reading this, it is the perfect product to include in your guests welcome package.

    It Sounds like a great company. Thanks for getting the word out to the community. I have always been a coffee press person while backpacking but think I am going to switch to instant. I recently had a Starbucks instant blend that was very good and got me thinking about instant.

    Also, thanks for the Biolite review. That is an amazing design they came up with.

    What about tea? I prefer tea than coffee, but either of the two it would be the best to drink when you wake up from camping. :)
