I have assembled 4 easy ” coffee systems ” to ensure that you get your caffeine fix whether you are hiking, fishing, or backpacking.
How about an espresso?
1) Espresso Coffee is quickly gathering popularity around the campfire. A good espresso is a sure fire way to get your morning off to a quick start. If you demand to start your day in the great outdoors with an espresso coffee then this might just be the machine for your backpack.
Travel light, Freeze at night is fine with you, as long as there is an espresso for breakfast.
This Minipresso can make an espresso anywhere. This little trooper is hand operated. No batteries or electric power required. Weighs only 10.4 ounces.
Read the instructions carefully and this is a game changer in the bush or in the boat.
DO NOT TAMP the coffee in the basket.
Don’t like espresso! then have a French press coffee!
2) Another long time favorite is the French Press.
This French press is made of vacuum-sealed, double-wall stainless steel and will keep your coffee or tea hot or cold for hours. This travel companion will brew coffee and tea on the go and you can drink it from the same container.
It has a non-slip grip and is available in 4 colors; white, red, green, and black.
Its spill-resistant lid and built-in plunger are all dishwasher safe.

3) Pour-over methods. This is a funnel shaped container, best made of stainless steel or other food grade material. Simply place the funnel or container over your cup, mug, pot, or carafe, add coffee grounds to taste, and pour hot water into the container to get your drink.
These stainless steel filters replace old school paper filters and will last for many years when properly cared for. These filters can brew from 1 to 4 cups at a time are very easy to clean.
Pour over method filters also come in a collapsible silicone version. This version is more rugged and perhaps better suited to more abuse.
Want something more old-fashioned?
4) Old-fashioned stainless steel coffee pot.
This is an older means of brewing coffee over an open fire or stove top. These coffee pots use percolation to brew coffee and come in a variety of sizes. 6 and 9 cup sizes are sufficient for smaller groups and larger sizes are more appropriate for larger groups.
Heavy gauge stainless steel heats quickly. Comes with Percolator stem and basket. The pouring handle is insulated to protect your hands from the heat.
These pots have many replacement parts as well.
