    Sounds great! But I think it isn't worth it! Too expensive...

    Do you mail order Dean's Beans to Algeria 'cause I checked the map and they don't list a location anywhere in Africa.

    Now I have never roasted the coffee bean, but rather buy the roasted bean to make all kinds. French Pressed, Cowboy coffee is the go-to when camping. But I have done both. First here are my steps for Franch Pressed coffee. First, you need a special coffee maker for the french press. As you bring the water to a bowel about 195-degrees. While waiting grain the beans into coffee grounds measure and drop into a pot of hot water for 3-mins and then press to the bottom of the pot and serve.
    Cowboy coffee is boiling water and the coffee ground dropped in after water comes to a bowl. I mix the grounds in for about 3-minutes as well. When ready I remove from the fire and dump in about a half cup of ice-cold water as this will make the coffee grounds fall to the bottom of the pot and serve. I normally make about 4 or 5, 12oz cups and by the end of the day have put them all away if not shared with friends. YES, I'll drink cold as well. I love my Coffee. Not so sure about this one, would need more information and the link seemed to be broken for me when I tried. Thanks for sharing coffee is good stuff when made right

    As for drinking poop, has anyone seen the movies on Bill Gates, on Netflix, called "INSIDE BILL'S BRAIN". His team made a totally self- sufficient toilet, all safe powered totally and makes clean drinking water form it as well as completely destroying for safe removal., yep you guessed it "POOP" All in all I found it kind of cool, them doing that. But don't take this to mean I'm a total fan of Mr. Gates. But I respect his work in helping others.

    The Wilderness for myself has always been a place, I can escape to and discover my stronger self. A true builder of self-confidence and skills, I never knew we're possible within me to achieve. A tough taskmaster breakdown my self-limits and barriers. I have overcome and found my inner self, leaving behind only the old skin, blood, and sweat, having won a newer stronger self. The Wilderness shows me a better reflection of myself.

    When I was out in the Dominican Republic me and the wife went on a "Safari" (would highly suggest) and they showed us their coffee and coco trees and how life was on the Island and a few things really stuck with me.

    The way this one family roasted their coffee they had an open fire pit and what looked to be an old propane canister with a rod through the center and a hatch built into the side to remover the roasted coffee all set up like a low spit.

    Had a taste test of it and they mix theirs with cinnamon... Some of the best coffee I've ever tasted.

    Just wanted to mention I have had very good results using very basic equipment. A wood fire, cast iron skillet, stainless spatula and a second cold iron griddle to cool the hot beans when ready. Get the beans real hot and keep them moving during the full roasting with the spatula and then the instant they are at the darkness you like dump the hot beans on the cold iron and keep moving for a bit to knock the heat out. Let fully cool and grind then enjoy. That's it.
