Decent instant coffee (for camping purposes) ?
Does such a thing exist ?
Or is there another suitably elegant solution out there ?
Any help much appreciated, ta.Posted 11 years ago
the individual filters is my usual least bad option, or a v small french pressPosted 11 years ago
Ordinary Nescafe from Spain – totally different from the muck sold to the British.
Failing that, Blend 37.Posted 11 years ago
I quite like the Percol fairtrade instant stuff.Posted 11 years ago
no such thing, get a small press or expresso potPosted 11 years ago
Some of the Douwe Egberts stuff isn't bad at all for instant.Posted 11 years ago
yeah, thanks guys, google not helping me much.
was planning on just using filter papers without the cone, probably not too impractical (backpacking here btw)
will look into the Percol and similar

Can't remember what it's called, but it comes in a black labelled jar with a black lid & gold writing – cafe noir? That's pretty nice.
But, I'm happy with pretty much any coffee.Posted 11 years ago
For instant coffee, Nescafe Espresso gets my vote 😀Posted 11 years ago
Yeah stumpy01, Carte Noire would be my other choice apart from Blend 37

Certainly not Asdas own pre-sweetened espresso in a pack, had that camping at the weekend, It was like drinking stop-bite.Posted 11 years ago
Just get a stovetop one as below and bring ground coffee with you. It's what I've always done. (obviously no good for ultralight camping)

I use a cafetiere mug – link
Only a fiver and it's insulated too.Posted 11 years ago
Take your favourite – a standard cafetiere press fits inside the Alpkit mug (and others no doubt)and takes hee haw extra space
Coffee bags I've tried have been crapolaPosted 11 years ago
We used to use a stovetop.Posted 11 years ago
Now, with kids and a huge tent we have to take so much stuff (and usually have leccy) so we just take the Gaggia.
Cowboy coffee. Put coffee in cup, add water. Coffee grounds sit on top, when brewed touch them with a spoon and they sink. Just don't drink the last bit. Perfectly OK for lightweight camping. Higher roast coffees don't sink so well.Posted 11 years ago
Percol Espresso stuff, does the job & as long as you get the ratio just right then not too bad … dont go adding lots of water thoughPosted 11 years ago
Second Douwe Egberts if you really want instant.
Cowboy Coffee is the traditional method of making coffee in the wild and It does taste better, but some don't like the bits in the bottom.Posted 11 years ago
Just bought some Lyons 'fresh ground coffee in one cup bags' from Morrysons. £1.99 for 18 bags & theyr'e not bad actually. Must be better than carting a cafetiere around!Posted 11 years ago
Look for the green box.
Not Tesco Value…Had once and never again 😆
Nescafe Gold is nice. Thats what is being drunk now, at work.Posted 11 years ago
no such animal 😕Posted 11 years ago
LOL at Cowboy Coffee, although I do like the mug with the built in press.
I'm thinking Cowboy, or rubber band round the old filter paper cone !
cheers for the brand suggestions, might have a dabble.
neeed that fix early doors, eh …Posted 11 years ago
