i am a new camper. I love my coffee beans and i was wondering what’s the best coffee machine everyone uses in their camping trips . I was hoping to use it when traveling also. Preferably a machine with a grinder but i guess i can purchase it separately

Thanks in advance

We use capsules and a Nespresso Citiz machine with a separate frother. 360Ah lithium batteries and a Xantrex 1800W PSW inverter plus 440 watts solar to support it and the rest of the stuff.

How much weight you want to carry and unless you stick to main roads the chances are you rattle it to pieces.. We just find decent coffee shops when we can or boil water and make instant. The missus does use Nescafe Latte satchels

Much the same as Ivan.

Half a billy of water on the butane burner, and a spoonful of “43 beans” in the crockery mug and I’m ready to go!

Hi Fred,

I love my morning coffee too and have a proper espresso machine at home. But this is what I do out bush...........

A double-walled stainless coffee plunger.
I grind the beans at home and carry them in a screw-top jar.
Heaped dessert spoon of grind, add boiled water, wait 15 secs and slowly depress plunger.
Pour and sip. It's every bit as good as home.
But wait, there's more....... Cappuccino!!!! Do the espresso bit, pour into cup, then rinse the plunger in hot water, add hot milk and pump the plunger up and down a few times to very effectively stretch the milk.
One-cup sizes can be had from $25 on eBay, a bit more for larger sizes.
Cheers
Allan

Yep. We do similar. We have plunger cups, and also grind the coffee before leaving andkeep it in the fridge until ready to use. Almost as good. To froth the milk we just use a small whisk and beat the daylights out of it.

I use an Aeropress. Works with elbow-grease, makes good coffee, and takes up no room in the car or bike.

Have been using one of these for some time now. Simple and effective and the pods are readily available.

Minipresso

You can also get a version that uses ground coffee and they are available to purchase in Aus.

As we all know everything tastes better when you’re camping, so just stick to a mocha pot and enjoy the serenity.

I find a cold Ice Break coffee milk is much easier when traveling not prep work required just get it out of the fridge.

Saw a 12v Expresso machine in one of the department stores a few years ago for around $450 (from memory).

Don't need a machine.

The biggest single variable is freshly ground beans. Use a Porlex hand grinder. Then Hario pour-over.

Low tech. Nothing to go wrong.

An Italian stovetop espresso coffee pot and an old fashioned manual coffee grinder is all we need. Great coffee (unground beans keep well in the fridge and acceptable ones can be purchased in most places if you are far from your special roaster!). These are cheap, travel well, take up little space and provide excellent coffee. Not suitable for a campfire but then there is billy tea! JohnandLynne

Coffee plunger. We like long black, so quick and easy to make.
Life's great and it just keeps getting better
