Camping Coffee Pot

Search the Minnesota Visitor Website


Your camping coffee pot is an essential on your camping list if you are a coffee lover. You have many options from a traditional pot to a high end coffee pot .

My favorite "wake up call" on  a camping trip is the aroma of brewing coffee. I appreciate the early risers in our group who are willing to get the coffee perking. 

For many years the coffee pot that was part of our camping gear was an old beat up aluminum pot...a castoff from our kitchen.

Since then we've had several versions of the "tried and true" enameled coffee pots. They are perfect if you want a camping coffee pot that can stand up to the heat of a campfire. 

My husband gave me a French press coffee maker for my birthday a couple of years ago. Last summer I decided to take it along on a camping trip when just the two of us were going. While it is slightly more fragile that a typical camping coffee maker, it was a hit with us. We have this Eight cup French Press

The Jetboil Flash Personal Cooking System is not, yet, a coffee making device we have owned. This multi-function unit has more uses than making coffee. The description on Amazon.com includes: "combines an adjustable stainless-steel burner and a 1-liter FluxRing cooking vessel in a single compact unit. To use, simply add water or liquid to the 1-liter cooking cup and fix it to the burner. Within two minutes, the Flash will provide two cups of boiling water for cocoa, coffee, instant soup, or a gourmet freeze-dried meal." This would be a step up from our French press for sure.

Traditional Camping Coffee Pot

The Right Pot for Making Cowboy Coffee!

This Granite Ware Coffee Boiler is still part of our camping kit and the pot we take along when camping with a group.

Whoever gets out of their tent first is "nominated" to start the coffee. The big pot often sits on the campfire coals for much of the day growing more "flavorful" by the hour. Imagine cowboys out riding the range and needing a daily jolt of coffee to keep them going. They likely used a pot similar to the big enamel coffee pot below. Boiled coffee is also how we made coffee for many years at home.


Recipe for Cowboy Coffee: 

1. Bring one quart of water to a boil in your coffee pot (leave the pot uncovered at this point.)

2. Add 3/4 cup of ground coffee.

3. Return to boil.

4. Immediately remove from heat and place cover on pot.

5. Wait until the grounds sink to bottom of the pot (approximately 5 minutes).

6. Serve. Ahhhhh!
