I've found this technique makes a small amount of extremely tasty coffee, but more than that, extremely potent coffee. An Ex of mine had a Turkish father and would use this method on camping trips to make some of the tastiest coffee I've ever had. From what I understand, the chief difference between Turkish coffee and cowboy coffee is the grind is chalkdust fine. The little burr crank grinders they make for it are absolute works of art, see: Pretty much any pot you can hold on a stick is shoved into the fire till it is about to boil, is pulled back out, and you repeat this, giving a little stir, 3 times. then pour and enjoy. Youd probably want to pre grind your coffee before you head into the wilds to avoid carrying this little brass and copper chunk but I can only imagine how tightly packed this ultra fine powder could be. Pack it tight enough and no worries about oxidation either. Anybody but me do this?
