Everyone loves coffee, this is a given fact. Now it's just that it's not that easy to drink coffee everywhere. How should you make a cup of coffee behind the wheel? At the campsite? While walking? Exactly, this is not as easy as you would think. If you want to enjoy a cup of coffee while traveling you will need to have a travel coffee machine. Since not everyone knows what to look for when taking a camping coffee maker with him or her, we have made the necessary arrangements. Thanks to this information you can be sure that you will be optimally prepared for your trip!
Decide how big device you want to take with you
If you're a real fan of fresh coffee beans, then you're probably going to take a very large coffee maker with you on your vacation. The most important questions are: What should I bring and how should I take it with me? Your destination and the way you get there will determine what you can take with you. This is the first thing to think about when planning to make coffee while traveling. If you are going hiking or camping, ideally you want to take as little as possible with you. If you bring a suitcase to a hotel or B&B you might have more space to bring your best coffee maker. Anyone who doesn't have that much space is at the right place for a compact coffeemaker. With our machine you can make delicious coffee, without having to bring a large coffee maker with you. This ensures that you can put your travel coffee maker in the car or suitcase.
Go looking for good coffee
If you're serious about the quality of your coffee you might want to bring fresh beans. Fresh soils or beans naturally give a fuller flavor. The only disadvantage is that a coffee maker with beans takes up a lot of space. If you take the trouble to buy a travel coffee maker, it is important to think carefully about this. By the way, it's not that coffee powder always has a less strong taste, it depends entirely on the coffee you choose. Enjoying a delicious cup of coffee depends entirely on what you put in it. If you choose for the Presso X camping coffee maker you brew a cup of coffee anywhere at anytime. This way you get the full flavor you're used to, without having to reach for the instant coffee.
Pack the coffee in an airtight package
If you have limited space, you can choose to travel with your coffee in its original packaging. This is not a bad option, as long as the packaging is sealed with a clip. However, the best way to store coffee is to put it in an opaque and airtight container. Factors such as sunlight, air and temperature can affect the freshness and taste of your coffee beans. The taste can be influenced by external factors, such packaging will ensure that your coffee stays fresh the whole journey.
Use a grinder for the freshest taste
Once ground, the beans begin to lose their flavour and freshness. This is due to oxidation, you can see this as exposure to air. Although it can take a couple of weeks before the coffee is stale you want to make sure every cup is as fresh as possible. Crushing your beans before you make the coffee is therefore very handy. Although it may take some extra time and effort, it is (in our opinion) worth it. The fuller flavor makes this just a little bit tastier.camping coffee maker
Bring a thermos jug for hot and fresh coffee
If you go hiking, camping or have a long trip behind the wheel, a thermos can be an essential purchase. Look for a bottle that is insulated, made of resilient material and leakproof. The reason we recommend that you bring a thermos jug in combination with an in-car coffee maker is because it is easier to operate. Behind the wheel you really have to watch the road, you don't have the time to make a cup of coffee while driving. With a thermos jug on the other hand, it is possible to quickly make a delicious cup of coffee. Ideal if you have to drive a long day to that nice campsite in the south of France.
Use bottled water to improve taste and quality
The use of bottled water is another tip that may require a little extra effort, but will drastically improve the taste of your cup of coffee. The risk of losing the unknown chemical balance of tap water while traveling can ruin your coffee and produce a cup that's certainly not what you're used to at home. The complications of hard water, soft water, magnesium and calcium content can all affect the taste. Using bottled water when brewing is an easy way to get the best taste out of your coffee. especially now that you're not sure if the water at the destination is clean. In Spain and Poland, for example, it is not advisable to drink tap water due to its higher chlorine content.
You can see that bringing a travel coffee maker can be the solution if you want to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee in the morning. Thanks to the Portoffee camping coffee maker it is possible for everyone to make delicious coffee from ground coffee beans.
