A coffee break in nature, on your hike, or at a picnic…
Everything tastes better outdoors, and so does coffee. The sense of taste comes physically from our taste receptors in our tongue. Besides this our sense of taste is affected by our sense of smell and how well it works. Our sense of smell activates and becomes more sensitive when we move outdoors. Therefore we often experience stronger aromatics and enhanced sense of taste when out in nature or by the sea.
Preparing coffee outdoors, hiking, camping, or why not even at a picnic is relatively easy as long as you bring along practical and uncomplicated coffee equipment.
We start by assessing the access to water and whether we can boil water on a campfire or alternatively on a camping or gas stove, or do we need to bring along hot water in a thermos flask. We also want to know the possibility of washing or cleaning our outdoor drink- and dining ware. When we know our water source we can chose a coffee maker to bring along according to our taste.
You can bring along coffee as whole beans or readily ground in an airtight container. If you bring along whole coffee beans you need to pack along a manual coffee grinder as well. The benefits of whole coffee beans are that they preserve better and keep their aromas longer, and you get freshly ground coffee every day. Ground coffee is more sensitive to weather conditions and humidity or heat, but if stored well and airtight it is very convenient.
