“It took A.K. to teach me how to make real camp coffee: bring one pot of lake or river water to a rolling boil, add two palmfuls of generic coffee, and remove the pot to the edge of the coals. If it’s the breakfast pot, throw in the eggshells. When it’s done (five to ten minutes), add a splash of cold water to settle the grounds.

Like whiskey, it should be drunk from a tin cup.”    – John Gierach, Camp Coffee

 

Re-read this essay last night… looking forward to summer time and hopefully some smoky camp coffee.

I can’t wait for the smell of bonfire on the clothes and hair, and the blurry eyes coming out of a tent in the morning after a night under the stars.
