    Default Campfire COFFEE Recomendations PLEASE!

    Hello and hey to all my fellow campers and Hikers. For a long time now I have been in the market for a good campfire coffee. Now understand, I like a rost a bit on the strong side. I have done french PRESS method, I do enjoy grinding my coffee grounds. Most days will do two 9 oz. cups before I'm done. I have for the last two years fallen into enjoying the COWBOY coffee way of cooking over a campfire. That is bring the water to a bowl and then adding grounds and letting it roll over and over without bowling over. Then a splash of cold water on top as this will make the coffee grounds dropdown.

    But now I'm just looking for "taste" adding just a pinch of salt. Please any SUGGESTIONS on a brand as I'm truly open to ideas?

    I don't like weak tasting coffee. strong dark rich flavor nice small. But not so strong your mouth carries a black lickerish kind of taste all day.

    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.

    I did notice that the Death Wish people only say "strongest coffee you ever had" and not best coffee you ever had.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    While we're on the subject...Has anyone used one of those new fangled camp drip coffee makers? Slickdrip? It folds down. I think UST makes a version and there are probably others. I've never used one but it looks interesting.

    I recent years I don't camp far from the truck, so I just take an electric coffee maker and plug it into the inverter. I like Community Coffee.

    There's strong coffee and there's strong tasting coffee. A lighter roast has more caffein and darker roasts have less. I tend toward medium these days.

    Cowboy Coffee is a last resort.

    But,

    There WILL be coffee in the mornings.

    That looks extremely useful and could be added to the other necessary things in the truck console. What's it called?

    Crashdive123, funny as the first link was a SHOCKER as that is my daily go to each morning. Had mixed up some espresso in my last order and felt I needed a change. Thanks to everyone for getting back to me on this. KIND OF INTERESTING Death Wish, I have kind been on my cafe Bustelo for many years now..I like stuff within easy reach most of the time. But as you selected my go to I think I will give this one a try. Thanks to everyone on suggestions...... lol

    Pete Linch, as for Medaglia Doro instant espresso, I may try without the espresso kicker if possible being added. I just searched for a link and this stuff looks very interesting and seems it only comes as an espresso here is the link: https://www.bing.com/search?q=medagl...176e2745ccc0b4 and may be a bit too strong for me. But what the heck I'll give it a try..

    I have only been doing espresso in my Cuban coffee with some cuban bread toast.

    Rick,As for adding some changes in my coffee making, not at this time. As I'm working of a new taste fist before changing my setup, but thanks for the suggestion.

    Thanks again for all the suggestions... nice

    Slickdrip. It uses a standard coffee filter. Here's a short vid for you.

    I am so into Death Wish! It's perfect for me, strong enough but doesn't have this terrible too bitter taste as other strong cofee. You can also try El Vaquero, it's good too, but I like Death Wish more because it has better smell and tinge.
