How to Brew Camp Coffee with an Aeropress

Posted In: All Posts, Brewing Tips


Whether you’re glamping for a night or on a week long backpacking trek, there’s nothing better than waking up in nature with the sunrise to brew a fresh cup of coffee. We love bringing an Aeropress on our adventures because they are lightweight, easy to pack, easy to clean, and easy to brew! We love our Organic Café la Dueña with this brew method. Intimidated to press? We have simple how-to steps below.



1. Place filter into Aeropress and pour water over filter to rinse. Pour roughly 3 tablespoons of ground coffee into press.
