Yes, You Can Have Great Coffee at a Campsite for Cheap

August 8, 2019 Deals By

There’s something wonderful about enjoying a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the wilderness. All of the pleasures that the beverage imparts when experienced in the comforts of home or at a favorite cafe are multiplied at a campsite, even when high-end barista machinery is unavailable.

Without a countertop appliance, coffee making becomes a modified and slightly more humble process. However, there is a range of lightweight and packable brewers available, from French press to pour over. GSI’s JavaPress is our favorite for its ability to serve multiple cups in one batch and for its easy-to-clean construction. It’s currently 20 percent off at Huckberry.

French press not your brewing method of choice? GSI’s Packable Campsite Pour-Over Set is also on sale at Huckberry for 25% off. The kit includes an adjustable crank-powered burr grinder, a collapsible pour-over cone, a reusable nylon mesh filter and a spoon. All are lightweight and packable (as camping gear should be) yet fully fit for wilderness caffeinating.
