Instant coffee for camping & coffee by the bean:

Instant coffee is ideal for camping and hiking because it is light, tiny, easy to brew, and clean-up is minimal. If you've had unpleasant instant coffee experiences in the past, take assured that the industry of instant coffee has witnessed a lot of innovation—there has been an explosion of wonderful tasting instant coffees in the last few years! Instant coffee is the way to go for anyone who wants a truly speedy, hassle-free, impossible-to-screw-up coffee-making experience in the morning. You will, however, be sacrificing taste BUT there are pour over camping coffee makers that get pretty close to hitting the mark.

Filters/ Drip Filters:

The new Dog & Gun coffee sachets aren't quite instant, but they're far more convenient than typical camping coffees, requiring simply boiling water and a cup. These packet drip filters are perfect for individuals who don't want to use instant coffee but also don't want to deal with a coffee maker. Because they come in a small, lightweight box, single-serve pour-overs can be a very appealing alternative to instant coffee. This is ideal for those who want to reduce space and weight while still enjoying the enhanced pour-over flavour (and don't mind dragging wet grinds out). A paper frame and a pre-ground coffee bag are used to make single-serving pour-overs. The frame is stretched out over your cup and set on top of it. After that, carefully fill the pour-over pouch with hot water. Take it out and have a good time with it.

For coffee aficionados. Those who plan to grind their own beans at the campsite, in particular. Because this method takes a lot of flavour from the coffee, it's the prefered method among baristas. This method is best done in a group of 2-3 individuals because it takes time. Set a paper, metal, or reusable cloth filter halfway full of coffee grinds over your cup. Bring the water to a near-boiling temperature before pouring it gently and in a circular motion into the filter. We propose the Pro Nano Jet Boiler for flow-over because it can pour a steady, consistent stream of water without dribbling.


This is the way we at Outback Equipment prefer to make camp coffee. The Aeropress is a camping coffee maker that combines the benefits of a pour-over, a French press, and a pneumatic press to produce exceptionally rich and smooth coffee. Because of its quick brew time, easy clean-up, and tiny size, the Aeropress has been our go-to camping coffee maker for the past 5 years. This method is perfect for vehicle campers, vanlifers, and RVers, as well as coffee connoisseurs. Because it only brews one cup at a time, it's fine for groups of 2-4 people if you have patience. This kinf of camping coffee maker includes a foldable stirrer, scoop, and filter holder that all fit into a coffee cup.

Perculatored coffee/ french press coffee maker:

While many people love the simplicity of a French press, the standard glass carafe isn't designed to withstand the rigours of camping, so leave the glass at home and invest in a strong camping-style French press. The French press produces a lot of coffee with little effort, but it uses a lot more (coarse) grinds and requires more cleaning than many of the other options. Anyone who likes a simple brew method that produces a deep, flavorful cup of coffee. This is a fantastic option for groups of 2-4 individuals. Method: Pour a little hot water into the bottom of the container to "de-gas," then fill with hot water, mix, and wait 8-10 minutes before depressing the plunger.

Camp coffee drinkers have relied on the good old-fashioned percolator for years. A metal tube leads up to a metal basket loaded with coffee grounds. As the water boils, it percolates up the tube and into the basket. Over a camp stove or fire, this method works well for making a large batch of strong coffee. Depending on the size of the percolator, this brew method can be utilised for small or large events. This is an excellent option for RVers, vanlifers, and car campers. Fill the kettle halfway with water, then add the grounds and a paper filter (or just use the metal filter). Boil the grinds until they are soft. Most percolators have a glass or plastic viewing bubble on the top that allows you to see when the coffee is ready.

Mugs for Coffee:

When it comes to selecting a high-quality coffee cup for camping, you have a lot of options. The conventional enamel mug is frequently chosen by the majority of individuals. These are lightweight and ideal for a weekend getaway, but they do not insulate heat well, so it will boil quickly before cooling off. This is why many people prefer collapsible plastic mugs, such as those sold by Hulu. Stick to the Stanley thermis mugs for long-lasting insulation and hotter coffee for longer.

Grinders for coffee:

Bringing pre-ground coffee with you when you go camping is, without a doubt, the most convenient way to brew coffee. However, there is a compelling case to be made for bringing whole beans each morning and grinding them fresh. Even non-coffee snobs may detect the superiority of freshly ground coffee. If you want to get the most out of a high-end or speciality coffee, fresh ground is the way to go. You may also need to adjust the fineness of your coffee depending on your brew method. Most pre-ground coffee for drip camping coffee makers are medium coarse, while finer (for espresso) or coarser (for cappuccino) may be required (for french press). Thankfully, there are several manual coffee grinders on the market that are perfect for incorporating into your camp coffee regimen.
