    Could find an appropriate thread to post my outdoors coffee session, so here is one.

    Alcohol stove , Swiss Borde Kocher, Esee 3, instant coffee, baguette, cheese, sausage... what more does one need ;) Picture taken in Spain, Fuente De.

    During the cooler months every time I pick up sticks and branches in the yard I make coffee with my Burtonsville rig over my firepit. FB_IMG_14038128332649824.jpg

    Thanks! I love those things.

    Thanks! They're my Car Camping Cups, though I'll use them other times too when I feel like it - downside is the enamel coated metal gets crazy hot, and inside I frequently don't have on a pair of gloves! The back is quite nice as well (and I happen to have a picture of it):

    Coffee/tea making outdoors is always fun, especially with the BK7 to make thing easiers :D
    It was during our summer vacation though Spain and France.
    Here's some more pictures making tea at the borders of the Dordogne river in France. Stayed there for a few days, a beautiful area.

    Gathering some dry sticks (Poplar wood) on my way over there
    [​IMG]

    This is the spot, and all the wood I need (and then some more)
    [​IMG]

    Flames if you look closely on top of the MSP Core 4 stove (love that thing!)
    [​IMG]

    Put the kettle on
    [​IMG]

    Enjoying the view while waiting for the water to boil
    [​IMG]

    Tea is ready, let the flames go out now
    [​IMG]

    Plenty of water around to leave things behind safe :D
    [​IMG]

    Big fun yes. :D

    Nice! Do those collapsible cups hold up well when used for hot drinks?

    Yes they do fine with hot drinks.
    I like how the stove, 2 cups, a lighter, sachets with coffee all fit in the ti pot.
    There's a bit of taste coming of these with hot drinks so I'm not 100% statisfied.
    Hope that'll wear of with more use.
    Of maybe one day I'll invest in some fancy sea to summit x-mugs.

    This was from earlier in the year (4th of July weekend). I started heating up water to make coffee before everyone else woke up (5:30-6am). Very peaceful, just birds and squirrels chirping. That’s when coffee tastes the best

    Lol, it looks shiny from the pic, but I’ve scrubbed off most of the carbon build up after each camping trip. I like shinny things :3:

    Brewing some coffee at the bushbox! Using a expresso pot for a single cup coffee pot. Works good! I also have the next size up that would make 2 cups. I'm gonna keep it for a spare tho!

    Nice. I've thought of putting my espresso pot on a wood stove but I"m afraid I'll melt away the handle.... how does it hold up?

    They’re a great piece of gear if you know how to run ‘em. Cliff notes version: keep your heat low while starting out, and keep the lid up to monitor your brew. Once it starts to perk, take the pot off the heat and let it coast. Also, don’t pack the basket like it’s an espresso machine......I don’t even press down on the coffee, just tap the basket a little and let it settle.

    You can brew great coffee once you learn the technique and get a feel for how they brew. Too much heat is the first/easiest mistake to avoid.

    I did a little "smoothing it" this morning. Took my moka pot, Primus Classic Trail Stove, some Medaglia d’Oro Espresso and my favourite enamel mug to the backyard between the big kids leaving for the school and the little kids arriving for daycare. Happy Friday my friends!

    P2157944.JPG

    Here comes the goodness!

    P2157945.JPG P2157946.JPG

    I added too much water so we had a little leakage from the pot, but most of the good stuff ended up in the mug.

    P2157950.JPG

    Huston, we have a problem! I ran out of gas half-way through the perk and when I changed canisters the new one started leaking gas. This is not the first time this has happened, with three different stoves (2 Primus Classic Trail and 1 20 year old Peak 1 stove), and it's always happened when it's below zero. It's only about freezing here today, and I got this canister from the house so it was nice and warm. I tried a second green Primus canister and the same thing happened. Weird! This is one reason I always carry a back-up solid fuel or alcohol stove. ;)

    Did you check the O-ring or rubber gasket inside the threads? That kind of leaking is “failure” level IMO, not just a quirky glitch related to cold weather.

    Great post BTW. It’s odd how we’re drawn outdoors even when we have the modern conveniences only a few feet away!

    I was in the mountains at work yesterday, and my home coffee ran out. I used my Fancy Feast and 12cm Imusa to not just heat water, but to melt/boil snow for coffee! I had plenty of water with me, but couldn’t see those snow drifts going to waste. :D

    And Medaglia instant was the coffee.

    They are the best. :) I use mine every day at least twice. In fact, I am enjoying a cup right now. :)
