What do those of you who camp and drink coffee do to have a quality brew, winter and summer in your van while camping? For fear of sounding like I have the answer let me say I have tried about everything and have come down to.... (wait for it.....) INSTANT! I am so ashamed. However it isn’t ANY instant but is that Starbucks Via, french roast bought from Wally World or Target with coupons or on sale averaging $5/8 pks. It goes in the bottom of our Stanley drip-proof insulated coffee “mugs” https://www.amazon.com/Stanley-Class...%2Bcoffee&th=1
Hers is blue mine is classic green.
Here is the process, I half fill my stainless percolator base with water, drop the end of my instant read dial cooking thermometer in the spout, light the burner on the cheapo butane stove, go put my underware on (oops did I say that out loud?) and get out two via packs, one goes in each mug. By now the water is about 180º as that stove is a HOT item, and fill the mugs, (cow juice in hers) put the lids on, and now for the hard part. gently swish the mug, open the spout, swish a bit more, open the spout, then invert the mug over the sink. Why? The drinking spout is so waterproof that the heating of the air and interior of the mug can blow off the lid if you invert the mug without releasing the pressure! I love those mugs but it can happen! BTW the bit of extra hot water goes in the little dish pan with a bit of cold to wash up- first class treatment!
Then we have about 12-14 oz of pretty good coffee that stays hot for hours, or its gone. They fit all the cup holders too. If we are hiking we can return in 2 or three hours and still have nice warm remains, if we are driving that day we may pull in to MickyDees for a fillup, bathroom and internet, perhaps a sausage McD on occasion (now I have admitted everything!) What do you do?
