An AeroPress, similar to a French press, is a fast and simple way to brew your coffee. This product is made for life on the go and can be taken anywhere, either inside its own mug with the travel model or in a tote bag with the original model. Just add your ground coffee inside, pour in the heated water, and press the water down through the coffee grinds and into the mug. This coffee maker is touted for being an espresso maker, a drip coffee maker, and a French press all rolled into one. 

Pour Over

With a pour over, you will need a carafe, filters, and a goose-neck kettle (or a special portable, single-serving device) for best results. For this simple process, you just need to sit the filter full of ground coffee to the top of the carafe and then slowly pour hot water over the coffee. As you pour the water, it drips down into the carafe while the grounds remain in the filter. Once you get your desired amount of coffee, you can enjoy the light-bodied taste produced by this method.


If you prefer a stronger cup of coffee, then a percolator may be the best option for you.  The heated water is pushed up through a tube and then out of the top onto the ground coffee. It then drips down through the filter, into the coffee reservoir. This is another great way to make the perfect cup of coffee without electricity. Percolators were widely used before automatic coffee makers came to the market.

About The Hot Water

There are a few different ways that you can heat your water at the campsite. A Jetboil is a compact system available in different models that all provide you with a rapid boil, including a special coffee kit version. There are also many other types of portable stoves available for camping enthusiasts. If you want a more natural primitive experience, then you can bring your water to a boil over a campfire.
