Since the summer will soon be here, a new season of camping will begin.

How do you manage to brew yourself a good cup / espresso while in camping ? I thought about a Bialetti / Bialetti Mukka I could use on my propane camping stove. Any more ideas ?

Will you have access to a freezer, or be able to keep stuff frozen or very cold and how long are you going for?

That's easy: Mypressi, a Hario hand grinder and something to boil water.

Will not travel for more than few days per trip and will have access to a small fridge or an ice packed cooler. Not trying to have coffee as good as what I have access too at home, but something a notch better than coffee made out of a Bodum (which, to my opinion, can make good coffee if made from good coffee blend...)

Then your in luck. if you have a good espresso machine, simply pull a load of shots at home, chill them down and take it with you in a plastic bottle....keep it nice and cold. Pour what you want into a cup and add hot water.....sort of like high quality camp coffee without the chicory, sugar and robusta.

It will be fine for a few days and no faffing about with grinders beans and other equipment.

My recommendation for camping coffee "a notch better than a Bodum" would be the GSI Commuter Java Press. I have several glass Bodum presses, stainless steel travel Bodum presses and a no name stainless steel camping press. The GSI Commuter Java press produces a noticeably cleaner cup.

This press has a 300 micron screen and no possible path around the screen. The Impress brewer may have been based on this design since it was available before the Impress Kickstarter campaign.

I bought my GSI coffee equipment from mec.ca (Mountain Equipment Co-op). The GSI camping coffee grinder is a good mate to this press. I have nearly worn out their old grinder and have the new design on order. Mec.ca also have a good selection of other camping coffee equipment and replacement parts. This includes Handpresso and a GSI espresso maker.

I like the Impress, but that GSI press looks nice too, and is cheaper. The Impress is Stainless Steel, which is an advantage.

When i'm camping I generally can't afford taking my home coffee machine with me, but rather than caring about my home made coffee i just accept the hotel coffee let's say i don't have the choice.

It's not espresso, but my daughter used this for a month backpacking up in Alaska. Her original plan was to use pre-ground coffee, but I ended up modding a Hario Mini grinder for her and she took some fresh whole beans instead.

Take care!

Aeropress and a hand grinder. Light, small, and tasty (the coffee it makes, not the Aeropress - the plastic's a little rough on the GI tract).
