Cold Brew Cowboy Coffee is said to be the best tasting coffee you can get. It is sweeter and less bitter than regular coffee because it has not been heated. Cold Brew is a preference for coffee with ice cubes or coffee with vanilla ice. And for ultralight backpacking the great news is …you don’t even need cooking equipment …and if you have cooking equipment you save fuel.
Making Cold Brew Cowboy Coffee only requires cold water, coffee ground and a water bottle.
You make it by pouring coffee ground into a bottle with cold water. Shake it well. And let it soak for at least 3 hours, or over night.
It tastes great. The better the coffee ground the better the result is …,
Great tasting coffee in the morning, during a picnic or at any other time is bliss for most people and giving you the energy to get up and do those extra miles.
Cowboy Coffee is probably one of the oldest ways of making coffee and very simple and requires very little equipment.
You only need a pot to boil water in, water and ground coffee. That’s all …no filters, machines, french press equipment etc. And that is the best way to save weight …to do without a lot of stuff.
Fill the boiling pot up half with water, make a steady boil and fill in the coffee ground. Beware it will create a lot of foam for a bout 30 seconds. Make sure you can take off the boiling pot from the heat as more heat gives more foam. After about 30 seconds the foaming stops and you can take off the boiling pot from the heat and let it rest for another 30 seconds till the coffee grounds settle on the bottom of the boiling pot.
And this great tasting cowboy coffee is ready for being served …,
