Each of the spring fed jug fountains has the chemical analysis and all of the particulars listed on it.

Thanks for the article. Coffee is an important part of our camping, too. Our Son has been telling us about cold brewing Coffee, so we may give it a try. It’s good cold or hot.

We start our day with a cup of coffee whether at home or camping. The right water is key so we bring bottled water when camping. I didn’t think to fill a jug when we were at Hot Springs, I’ll bet that would make great coffee! Mike

You’re so right. Best water makes the best coffee. We carry what we can from home rainwater, and then live with what we find later, if on a long trip.catchas catch can… Or buy distilled water when it gets ugly.

Purchased a “Coleman Camping Coffeemaker” drip coffee maker and used it during the last two camping trips. Turned the flame down low on an old 2 burner propane camp stove. It took 3 times longer to brew the coffee at a low flame setting compared to our electric drip coffee maker in the camper & home using same coffee and water. If we poured a cup before the complete pot brewed, the coffee was strong. If we waited for the complete pot to brew, it was very good! Purchased a Coleman stainless steel coffee pot to replace the original glass pot and Coleman carry case.

Coffee at the campsite first thing in the morning is our ritual as well, just as it was when we were boating. We get whole beans from here-
And use a slow, burr hand grinder by Hario, and make it pour-over style into one of these…
Takes a while, but worth the wait.

I love coffee! My coffee preparation is the same in my Ollie as it is at home except that I use a hand grinder (burr) when camping. My grinder is a bit extreme, but it’s built to last a lifetime: http://www.oehandgrinders.com/LIDO-3-_c_30.html.
I like Hario products too. I use a Hario scale to weigh coffee and water to get the ratio I like (16:1). I also like the Hario pour-over kettle: https://www.amazon.com/Hario-VKB-120HSVV60-Buono-Pouring-Kettle/dp/B000IGOXLS. I drip the coffee directly into a Yeti insulated travel mug that works well as a small thermos.
I usually buy coffee on a subscription basis from small roasters–I change every 2-4 months. Recent favorites are Red Rooster, Counter Culture, PT Roasting and Heart. I also make cold brew with coffee from Blue Bottle.
When I’m traveling for more than 2-3 weeks, I search for local coffee roasters where I’m traveling. It’s hit and miss, but worth the adventure.
