Campfire Espresso 101

Monday, June 22nd, 2009No Comments



GETTING BACK TO NATURE JUST GOT EASIER
Surrounded by mountains, rivers and lakes just begging to be explored, we here at Cherry Hill Coffee try to take advantage of the natural surroundings every chance we can. And when we do venture into the great outdoors you know we’re packing beans. Just because you’re roughing it doesn’t mean you need to give up your espresso fix. The next best thing to ghost stories and s’mores is waking up and getting a fire going to put some coffee on. So as a public service to our customers and friends, we’ve compiled a list of some espresso -makers made just for camping. We’d love to hear your back-country coffee tips or find out what you use to brew away from home. Send us your story and we’ll hook you up with a free pound. Happy Trails!

GSI Mini
When your backpack is pressed for space and you’re watching your wallet, the four-cup GSI Mini is an easy choice. And for the coffee purists out there, bust out the hand-crank grinder accessory for the freshest shot!

Handpresso Wild
This space age bike pump can crank out the high pressure that you need to get some decent extraction. It uses pods which are easy to pack in and out, but you’re sacrificing big time on freshness. Still, the Handpresso gets marks for innovation and portability.

Bialetti Moka Express
Ok, technically, it’s closer to turkish coffee than espresso, but The Bialetti is Italian-made and easy on the eyes. It works like a mini- percolator and is available in heaps of sizes but the three cupper should do the job.

Presso
The newest (and coolest) kid on the block is the Presso. Using mechanical leverage to provide pressure, Presso is the closest thing to a real espresso machine you can pack up and take with you in the woods.
