We said it in our camping coffee article, but we’ll say it again! Camping coffee is the BEST coffee!
One time we forgot our Stanley Pourover, or rather we couldn’t find it before leaving the house for a camping trip. We grabbed our Moka Pot at the last minute and were amazed by the results.
A good camping coffee maker should be portable, durable, and easy to use. Portability is crucial for camping gear, so the coffee maker should be compact, lightweight, and easy to transport. Durability is also essential, as the coffee maker needs to withstand the rigors of outdoor use and be made of materials that can withstand the elements. Finally, ease of use is important, as camping can be a bit hectic, and a complicated coffee maker will only add to the stress. Ideally, a good camping coffee maker should be easy to set up, use, and clean, allowing you to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee while enjoying the great outdoors.
The Moka Pot is pretty specifically meets all of these needs.
- Portability: The Moka Pot is lightweight and compact, making it easy to pack and take with you on camping trips.
- No electricity required: Unlike other coffee makers that require electricity, the Moka Pot can be used on a camping stove, making it a good option for camping in remote areas where electricity is not available.
- Strong coffee: The Moka Pot uses pressure to brew coffee, resulting in a strong and concentrated coffee similar to espresso, which can be ideal for camping where resources are limited.
- Durability: Moka Pots are typically made from aluminum or stainless steel, which are durable materials that can withstand outdoor use and can be cleaned easily.
- Easy to clean: The Moka Pot is easy to disassemble and clean, making it a good option for camping trips where you may not have access to running water or cleaning supplies.
- Cost-effective: The Moka Pot is a cost-effective option compared to other camping coffee options.
- Versatile: The Moka Pot can be used to make coffee, but also tea, and other hot beverages.
Although I love my fancy looking Alessi at home, if I were getting one for camping I’d get this more campact and rugged one my friend had:
