    Camp coffee walks a line between good coffee, durability, convenience and simplicity.

    I use two devices:
    A metal French press (plunger), widely available.
    OR Aeropress, but important to also buy the metal re-usable coffee-ground sieve and avoid needing the filter papers.

    I like ground coffee (filter) and do not need espresso when in the bush camping.
    I too think my Aeropress gives the slightly better cup of black coffee.

    I can tell you it was a great treat using the wonderful, freshly ground East African and Ethiopian Arabica coffee beans when on the road in those countries.

    The Able Fine metal filter is very durable, mine is probably pushing 6yrs old now with 2 x daily use.

    For me, it's sometimes a Wacaco - I bought one of the early ones in their kickstarter time and it's getting a bit long in the tooth - or, more usually a mokka pot. The biggest difference for me comes with freshly grinding the coffee.

    I have used it 4 times now, and it works well. Just keep the grind to a medium grind

    The one issue I have is that I find it difficult to judge the amount of water I need, to not under or over fill the cup.

    And I seem to have no effect in "blooming" the granules.. what ever that means.

    I have come across this very simple solution for ground coffee, the Zyliss HotMug French Press combo.

    I drink Greek coffee and use a briki to make it... Just like I do at home. But you have to like that kind of coffee. It also has a particular roast and grind.. Which I buy.

    My wife uses a Moka pot and then uses a plunger to froth hot milk to make a cappuccino , works perfectly... Just a bit of elbow grease.

    I also sometimes just use boiling water poured over coffee grounds in a mug, stir and let the grounds settle by blowing over the surface of the coffee. Drink until you reach the grounds.. Kind of like Greek coffee

    You won't be sorry... I used one of those daily in the office, when the only option was chicory.
    Only changed up when I was gifted an Aeropress.

    Bialetti. Not only camping, but every morning at home too.

    Nice little black double espresso is a great start to the day.

    Bialetti along with an ancient zassenhaus box grinder which was gifted me.

    The zassenhaus is used for sentimental reasons, and a good workout first thing in the morning. It does a reasonable grind also.

    Have attached a pic from the web as I don't have one handy.

    Guys, the only way to have a camp espresso is with a Nanopresso.

    This is with VERY old beans…

    The last photo is of a double shot cappuccino, it is good coffee shop quality.

    Getting fresh beans tomorrow, will report back on clean espresso shot.

    When I have access to 220V the La Pavoni goes with together with a Bplus Apollo hand grinder. The Apollo grinds fine enough and with a consistent and uniform particle size distribution for a proper espresso. It grinds 15g beans (enough for one espresso) in 30 seconds. One can also steam milk to a nice micro foam with the La Pavoni for a cappuccino or latte.

    For the bush I use a Nanopresso with Nespresso pods or the Apollo grinder. I sometimes still use the Bialetti, but it's not proper espresso.
    Still working on my latte art though

    Out of curiosity, why avoid filter papers? I found them quite useful as I don't have to clean them.

    I printed one of these to store them with the press and it works great:

    Paper filters are just another box of things to load, and also something else to run short of in the middle of nowhere.
