    I make a lot of coffee next to the road yesterday it was in the Mitchell's Pass outside Ceres, right now I'm in the Overberg brewing next to the n2.

    I have space, so everything fits into an old toolbox. Water, gas, stove, mokka pot, milk, milk frother, ground coffee (in efferfluC tube) and matches. When I take the aeropress I also pack a porlex mini grinder.

    Am I able to make coffee-strength coffee with a Venus? Or will it always be espresso, needing to be watered down Americano style to get coffee?
    neither will give you espresso. Just vary the amount of ground coffee and you’ll end up with a very favourful ‘americano’. Its probably more like a lungo than an americano. Americanos tend to be a little watery given its brewing process, but perhaps that is to your liking which is totally fine. I prefer the more ‘full mouth’ flavourful options.

    I for example I use a 6cup Bialetti most of the time, then I grind 15 seconds of espresso-sized grind setting on my burr. That fills up the coffee powder trough little over half way. Brew it slowly and you have a winner.

    you can also try a product called brew spoon - basically coffee ground in a closed filter that you stir in hot water to your liking. This one is more like french press than americano/lungo and probably one of the easiest and cheapest ways to do coffee on the go.

    I use one of these: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/NEYOANN-O...dp/B09FPYW7ZN/ with relevant v60 papers. They really fold up small.
    If you have a hand grinder and great beans you get great coffee but it also works well buying pre-ground coffee in a bag, so less kit. You can also obvs make a few cups by loading up with grinds.

    That’s clever, very simple and robust.

    Laas week oppad Noord Kaap toe. Die klein stofie werk soos 'n droom en gebruik 'n Hart aluminium ketel (wat ek seker binnekort gaan vervang. Water koop binne 'n minuut. Ek drink decaf sonder suiker met bietjie koffie so maklik om langs die pad te maak.

    Kits koffie het nou die dag op die mark gekom. Klompie jare terug was daar net moer koffie. Ek het ooms gehad wat trein drywers was en n oupa wat in die veld gewerk het en n plan is gemaak en Spoorweg koffie is gebore. Al wat jy nodig het is water en jy het moer koffie.

    Bestandele:
    3 Koppies witsuiker
    3 Koppies baie sterk moerkoffie (klaar getrek)- die lepel moet somner regop staan )
    3 Koppies kookwater
    ½ Teelepel sout
    Metode:
    Roer suiker oor lae hitte in kastrol tot gekarmaliseerd
    Voeg moerkoffie by
    Roer oor lae hitte vir 10 tot 15 min (om koffiesterkte te verhoog)
    Gooi eerste 2 koppies kookwater by, bietjie vir bietjie (wees versigtig, kan vinnig oorkook) roer aan houdend vir 2 minute
    Voeg dan res van kookwater by, bietjies bietjies..1/4 koppie op ‘n slag, roer aan houdend.
    Voeg sout by, roer goed deur
    Laat goed afkoel.
    Filter deur baie fyn siffie, of lappie om enige gemaalde koffie te af skei .
    Wanneer goed afgekoel, bottel dit en bere in yskas
    Gebruik een teelepel kofffiestroop per koppie, halwe koppie kookwater en halwe koppie kookmelk…
    Self beter met net gekookte melk….
    aaahhhh boeretroos op sy beste…!!!

    Iemand anders se variasie
    KOFFIE EKSTRAK
    Karameliseer 1k wit suiker tot donkerbruin stroop. Voeg 1 k gemaalde koffie (moerkoffie) by en roer aanhoudend tot blou dampe daarop sigbaar is. Verwyder van die hitte en voeg 3 k koue water en 1½ t sout daarby. Verhit dit weer tot kookpunt en laat 30 minute lank kook. Laat dit staan om af te sak, syg dit deur ‘n klam deursygdoek en bottel. Gebruik 1 tot 2 teelepels op 1 k kookmelk en water vir elke koppie koffie. Die resep is voldoende vir 50 koppies koffie.

    Ek gebruik die hele 500g koffie gooi sommer in groot pot en kook op stadige hitte sodat die koffie uiters sterk is. Intussen karameliseer ek 5 koppies suiker tot lekker karamel. Dan gooi ek die koffie deur moeselien doek en gooi dit stadig by karamel in…dit kook baie maklik oor. Dan kook ek dit maklik tot n uur oor stadige hitte (hoe langer hy kook hoe meer ekstrak raak hy). Koel af ek gooi sommer as koud in lee koeldrank bottel. Jy gebruik so 15ml (1 eetl) op koppie koffie

    If memory serves, there are some models available on the 3d-printing sites.
