Aeropress is Camping Gadget of the Week

Coffee press camping gadget of the week
I am a bit of a coffee snob.

Not too proud or ashamed to admit it!!  

What that means is that instant coffee is something I can’t drink.   I would much rather go without, than drink a crappy cup of coffee.

So when we go camping, I ensure we have a decent cup of coffee.      And we have a number of ways of getting that perfect brew, and the Camping Gadget of the Week, just happens to be one what we use. 

It is the Aeropress.aeropress is camping gadget of week
This gadget is not a new one but been around for a while.    Many other campers and hikers use, and recommend it.

Small enough to put in your daypack, and definitely suited to all who camp.  In fact, we have used it at home and work in the quest to perfect that cup of coffee we love!

It is a coffee plunger that you place over your cup, fill with your coffee add water, and slowly press the plunger.

The water and coffee pass through a microfilter so the coffee you get is free of gritty coffee grinds (the muck that is at the bottom of your cup sometimes).

  1. Enjoy each cup of your coffee much more

    Maybe you are such coffee addict as I do. Yes, I can’t imagine that I couldn’t get
    my cups of finest coffee each day. I usually need 8-12 cups per day.
    Drinking of the finest coffee gives me a lot of pleasure, for sure.
    However, there is another key thing which gives me such admirable feeling when I
    am drinking a cup of my coffee each time. Yes, you are right.
    A lot depends on a cup which you are using for your coffee.

    Beautiful coffee sets are my loving passion, and I am a collector of these sets.

    I was interested in some truly gorgeous coffee set for pretty
    long time.

    I was searching for such set on the Net a lot.
    And I was lucky to find a lovely coffee set I was dreaming about.
    This excellent coffee set in the secession style contains totally stunning mocca cups, delightful
    coffee mugs and phenomenal sugar bowl and the coffee pot.

    Believe me, I never had such delightful feeling when I am using this coffee set for my coffee every day.
    I found the company named WEXONMART which is selling
    this delightful coffee set in their on-line store.
    So, if you are such coffee addict as I do then this delightful coffee set in the wonderful secession
    style will get such excellent feeling when your will be drinking your coffee every day.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Yes, I think we could be classified as coffee addicts! But we don't seem to have the same love of coffee sets as you do, but its great when you find something that you are truly happy with.

      Keep enjoying that brew!

  2. Mate. Keep it simple. Get a stainless steel Moka Pot (Italian style) or coffe plunger (French style). Both are robust enough to be used camping. Make sure you take along some quality coffee beans too.


    1. Hi Rex. I have tried the Moka Pot and I am not a huge fan of it - I can see why it would be great for camping, as it is indeed robust, but for me, the coffee is not to my liking as much. I do though, like the plunger style more, as long as it remains hot!

      But thanks very much for your input. We love that, and maybe I will need to give that Moka Pot another go.......
