Aeropress is my go-to brew method for camping. It's a compact setup with minimal waste, so it's easy to pack out with you. My partner and I brought ours for a week-long camping adventure in Iceland and were able to enjoy consistently delicious coffee every morning of our trip.

Gather your supplies
We use a 1:11 coffee-to-water ratio; our recipe makes one, 7 oz cup of coffee.
- 18 grams of fresh-roasted, whole-bean coffee
- 200 grams of filtered hot water (200 F)
- AeroPress kit
- Gram scale
- Grinder (we recommend burr grinders)
- Coffee mug
Place filter in cap of AeroPress and rinse with hot water, do not screw onto brew chamber yet.
Weigh 18 grams of coffee and grind on medium-fine setting, slightly finer than a pour-over.
With AeroPress upside down, insert plunger ~1 cm into brewing chamber, creating a tight seal.
Add coffee to brew chamber through funnel and shake to level grounds.
Start timer and add 200g water.
Stir with the paddle to saturate all coffee grounds and screw filter cap onto brewing chamber.
Steep until 1:30.
Flip + Press
Carefully flip AeroPress onto mug and gently press plunger for ~15 seconds, stopping when you hear it “hiss."
Serve and enjoy! 🤗
