Campfire Coffee

One of morning’s greatest pleasures is waking up over a cup of coffee, but what about a cup of hot Community® coffee, enjoyed around a campfire with your friends or loved ones? Don’t let a weekend away from your favorite home brewer keep you from enjoying a perfect cup of coffee. All you need is a camping kettle, fresh water and your favorite ground Community® coffee blend, and this blissful morning moment can be yours.

What you will need:
Camping kettle with lid
Fresh water
Community® coffee grounds
Grate or hook to hold kettle over campfire
Oven mitt or ladle for pouring

How to brew campfire coffee:

  1. Fill your kettle with desired amount of fresh water and add coffee grounds. We recommend 2 tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounces of water. For stronger coffee, add more grounds. 
  2. Place the kettle over the campfire, and keep a close eye on the pot. When tiny bubbles begin to form, and coffee is just about to boil, remove kettle from the campfire.
  3. Once the kettle has been removed from heat, allow it to sit for approximately 5 minutes so the coffee has time to steep. While the coffee rests, grounds should settle completely to the bottom.
  4. Remove the lid and gently pour coffee from the pot into a mug. We recommend using an oven mitt or ladle for pouring, as the kettle will be hot.
  5. Place the lid back on the kettle and set the kettle near the fire, without getting too close, to keep the remaining coffee warm.
