Camp Coffee with Heirloom Coffee Co.
When in Rome (Gatlinburg) right? I've always wanted to try this but never had the chance to do so. Emily and I got back from our long day of hiking and I was in desperate need for some caffeine. With also wanting to do a campfire (which the camp store closing at 5, we got back at 6 and forgot to get fire wood). We did what we could, picked up sticks and leaves, and it took off. I had packed my aeropress because it's the easiest to make and not hard to transport. I filled my kettle with water and set it on the grate on top of the campfire. I was sent a couple bags of coffee from Heirloom Coffee Co. a couple months ago and I've saved them for something special. Their packaging is beautiful and I knew that I wanted to save some beans for something.
A little more about Heirloom Coffee Co.
We want to make your life better with better coffee.
If you're like us, coffee has a special place in your life. The warmth and ritual of a morning cup is a prime start to today, and ensures something to look forward to tomorrow.
We believe something enjoyed so frequently should be enjoyed to its fullest potential, so we carefully source and roast specialty grade coffee from around the world. The result is a cup of coffee that’s radically different from what you typically find on grocery store shelves.
But the reason we do this is to share it with you. Fresh-roasted coffee is a wonderful experience, and we want to help make it a part of your morning.
Campfire Coffee Recipe
Step 1: Preferably get a long necked tea pot and fill it with water and put it on the fire to boil.
Step 2: During that time, grab out the scoop ( or 2 tablespoons) that comes with the aeropress and scoop into your burr grinder. Grind to medium to fine consistency.
Step 3: Remove plunger and basket out of the brewing vessel.
Step 4: Place a filter in the basket and wait until the water is done boiling.
Step 5: When water is done, grab your vessel and basket, and pre wet both over the sink so you don't make a mess ( like I have millions of time ).
Step 6: Place basket back onto the vessel tightly, grab a teacup and place Aeropress on top of the cup. Then add your coffee.
Step 7: Fill the vessel with water until it measures to the 4 line.
Step 8: Stir with a wooden spoon.
Step 9: Place plunger on top so it can brew. Brew for about 1 minute and 16 seconds.
Step 10: Remove the plunger and stir once more.
Step 11: Then press slowly until the plunger hits the bottom.
Then you're finished!!!
