For my birthday last month, Amanda bought me a pour over coffee system (electric gooseneck kettle, dripper and carafe) for the house. I love a good cup of coffee as much as the next guy, but would not consider myself an aficionado by any means. Two words...game changer! We were previously using a Keurig and the difference in taste could not have been greater. I was initially nervous about the time commitment, but start to finish, the pour over takes less than 10 minutes. After about a week of use, we looked at each other one morning and said, "how do we make a cup of coffee like this when we're camping?" We began to look around for a more mobile version of our pour over system that would work with our 2 burner camp chef stove and landed on the following setup.
We chose the 1L size as it was much easier to fit into our camp kitchen box. The thermometer is a great touch, as you want to heat the water up to exactly 185 degrees when doing a pour over. 5 stars on Amazon with 1,200 reviews is not bad either!
Perhaps the most widely used and highly reviewed pour over dripper. We opted for the metal version over the ceramic as we were nervous about the ceramic getting broken in the van or at the campsite.
Our travel mugs are outstanding for both hot and cold drinks. The low profile design makes them easier to hold than our competitors, they fit great in a cup holder and the graphic is hand drawn exclusively for Seek Dry Goods by our good friend @drawntosketching.
Don't just settle on your coffee the next time you are car camping and make the switch to pour over now!
