Boil your water at home
To save on both time and equipment by pre-boiling your water at home. A good thermal flask can easily be packed and ready for when you're in need of a brew. The flask can also be used to keep your coffee warm and ready to fuel the rest of your day-out. But if you do fancy boiling on the go, we recommend trying a JetBoil for speed and compactness.
Pre-weigh your beans
For ultimate freshness, a manual hand grinder is a great pice of kit. However, pre-ground coffee is another option you can use when looking to brew outside. Pre-weighing your coffee and storing in a small container can save both time and space when you want to maximise drinking time.
Make sure not to forget anything
It may sound obvious, but making a list can be super handy and prevent disaster occurring, especially if you're boiling water on the hill. Trust us on this one, we all have stories to tell of the time we were in the perfect spot for a coffee and realised there was something missing - we learnt that one the hard way!
We look forward to hearing all about your outdoor adventures.
