Chances are if you’re anything like us you’ll go to great extremes to get a good cup of coffee. Whether you’re roughing it for the weekend, at a cottage, or simply on your way to work, good coffee is something we won’t compromise. Fortunately, there are various products on the market that make brewing coffee a breeze, regardless of where you may be. From stovetop espresso makers to portable coffee grinders, we cover our five favourite camping accessories for making the perfect cup of coffee while in the great outdoors.
1) Stovetop- Espresso Maker
Before you take on a full day of adventures, you’ll need some coffee. If you like your coffee rich and strong, a portable espresso maker like the GROSCHE Milano is the camping accessory for you. Simply put your fine grinds in the filter, add some water, put it on a burner and let it brew. Once brewing has completed, indulge, rinse out to clean and let the adventures begin! Whether at the cottage or the campsite, this portable and durable espresso maker makes it easy to brew.
2) Stainless Steel French Press
Original French presses are not designed for the rugged camping escapades. Luckily, there are more heavy-duty models on the market today like the GROSCHE Dublin French Press capable of withstanding these quests. What we love most about this press specifically is that it’s made from durable stainless steel so you don’t have to worry about breaking it along the way. It features a 1L capacity capable of brewing larger batches with less effort, unlike pour overs. What’s more, the stainless steel keeps your coffee hotter for longer. With this press it’s easy to hydrate the camping crew.
3) Stainless Steel Pour Over
Pour over coffee is one of the easiest and our favourite ways of brewing a single cup of coffee outdoors. With a pour over kettle, it’s a soothing experience and requires just enough effort to get your day started. What’s unique about our Ultramesh Pour Over Coffee Maker is that no paper filters are needed. Once your coffee is brewed all you need to do is compost your coffee grinds and wash for next use. Coffee grinds make for a great fertilizer so you can even just toss them in the bush. No waste created. The earth thanks you.
4) Marrakesh Pour Over Kettle
The GROSCHE Marrakesh Pour Over Kettle is an essential for every camping trip. Aside from it being small and compact compared to your average kettle, this one requires no electricity. Simply fill the kettle with water, put it on your gas burner, let it heat up and voila- you have boiled water. It can be used on electric coil stoves, induction stoves, camping propane, and gas stoves. Gooseneck kettles are cherished for the control it provides when pouring which makes it essential for making the best pour over coffee.
5) Manual Coffee Grinder
If you don’t have a manual coffee grinder, you’ll want to go get one ASAP. Don’t think that just because you’re far out in a bush somewhere with no electricity, that you have to pack pre-ground coffee. The GROSCHE BREMEN Coffee Grinder is here to help. It’s small, compact, and includes a mason jar to keep your coffee fresh if you end up grinding too much. The adjustable ceramic burr makes it easy to change your grinds from coarse to fine, depending on your brewing method of choice.
