How to Percolate Coffee Camping
Making the perfect cup of coffee while camping is a surprisingly simple task. All you need is a few pieces of equipment and the right technique, and in no time you can enjoy a delicious cup of percolated coffee in the great outdoors.
- Coffee percolator
- Coffee grounds
- Heat source
- Portable pot stand (optional)
- First, add the desired amount of water to the percolator. A good rule of thumb is to fill it with one cup of water for every cup of coffee desired.
- Once the water is in, add 3 tablespoons of coffee grounds for each cup of coffee desired.
- Screw the lid on securely and place the percolator on the heat source to begin the brewing process.
- A portable pot stand is helpful in this step as it prevents the direct heat between the flame and the percolator, allowing the coffee to brew more slowly and evenly.
- Once the coffee grounds fill the percolator’s chamber, slide it away from the heat source to prevent over-extraction.
