So, if you’re planning to go on a trip or go camping this summer, you can’t forget the one thing that you need before starting your day – and that’s coffee! That means you have to pack a coffee maker into your bag. Whichever coffee maker you choose should depend on the level of convenience required, your packing limitations and the place you’re going.
However, many times you don’t even have enough space to pack essential clothing, let alone a bulky coffee maker that will take up a lot of space in your travel bags. Why not use coffee brew bags which are small, compact and easy to bring along? It is truly a more convenient way of getting your daily caffeine fix without any additional fancy equipment or any mess. Intrigued? Read on for our guide on how you can make coffee with our coffee brew bag during your summer trips.
If you have a travel mug with you or any mug that can hold liquids at high temperatures, that’s all you need to make a tasty cup of coffee! It is actually quite simple. Start by boiling water using a kettle. Then, open one of your coffee brew bags and pop it into your favorite mug. A good tip is using a wider mug so it can allow the coffee brew bag to brew better and achieve a stronger tasting coffee.
Once the water is boiled, don’t immediately pour it over your brew bag. What you need to do is let it sit for 30 seconds before dousing it over your brew bag, similar to what you do for a tea bag. The additional wait ensures that coffee isn’t burnt by the extremely hot water as it can result in a bitter aftertaste that wouldn’t sit well for your tastebuds. Let the bag sit for another three or four minutes; the longer it sits the stronger the coffee will be!
Then, press the coffee brew bag against the side of your mug to squeeze all the water out, ensuring to extract the maximum coffee goodness from the brew bag before discarding it away. If you have milk with you, you can add it to your coffee for good measure.
If you’re going on a long hike, want to drink coffee along the trail yet don’t have heating sources for boiling water, you can make a refreshing cold brew with a brew bag. You can let the brew bag steep inside your water bladder as you walk during the day. Do expect to let your coffee bags steep overnight or for at least five hours.
