Are you and your friends planning a weekend camping getaway, but everyone’s feeling a little apprehensive about being so far away from your local Starbucks? I mean, everyone knows how crabby Mitchell gets without his morning sip, and let’s not even talk about how Sarah is before she gets her daily jolt.
Don’t let a lack of reliable java hold you back! You and your friends can still conquer the great wide open AND take your favorite brew with you. And you wouldn’t be the first: Cowboys have been brewing up campfire coffee on the range since before K Cups were a glint in someone’s eye. And with a beefy brewer like the Stanley Classic Vacuum French Press, you can brew up a batch to give you and your friends that java jolt - and keep that caffeinated gold hot and keep you sane throughout the day. In less than five minutes, you have fresh brewed mud to rival your local barista’s. Heck, you don’t even have to use it outside, the Stanley team uses them at the office all day.
Want to know how to make a killer cup of cowboy coffee that brings people together? Read on, pardner:
Cowboy Coffee, à La Stanley
7g of coarsely ground coffee, about ½ a camp mug’s worth. We recommend a blend from our buds and adventurous brewers Verve Coffee.
1050g hot water. Any hot water will do, but water heated over a campfire tastes the best (it’s science).
The How To:
Roll out of bed, blink, and steel yourself to your noble task. Fill your favorite Stanley travel french press with hot water up to fill line. Add portioned ground coffee to hot water. Stir for 1 minute, allowing the grounds to fully moisturize. Set timer for 3 minutes and 30 seconds, cover with lid and let steep. Question why mornings even exist.
When the timer goes off, carefully and slowly push down the plunger. Make sure not to tip the french press too much or else you’ll get grounds in your coffee. Serve to the gathered throngs who have smelled that good-good brew. Enjoy!
