For the Love of Brewing Coffee Outdoors

with 3 comments

I drink coffee outside whenever I can. If there’s sun and a terrace, you can bet that I will be on it. But even better than just drinking coffee outdoors? Brewing coffee outdoors.

The topic of my latest piece on Sprudge:

A breakfast spot with a view is ideal when I’m in the outdoors. Actually, it’s not ideal; it’s a flat-out requirement. Even on a simple day hike, I’m the kind of person who will pack all the breakfast food and utensils in, simply to be able to eat my granola overlooking something beautiful. There is no better pastime after all than eating outdoors. Except for one: drinking coffee outdoors.

Fresh air, wind in the trees, a warm mug of coffee in your hand. Breathe, drink, breathe. This is living, and it’s something more and more coffee lovers will get to enjoy as we enter into the warmer months across the northern hemisphere. This is a time for camping, a time for hiking, and if you’re just a little bit dedicated (and/or obsessed), a time for making delicious coffee in some pretty remote places. Coffee lovers’ insistence on brewing outdoors might appear to be because of caffeine dependency, but I can tell you that there’s much more to it.

  2. Ohhhh… I guess Im not really an outdoorsy person, so wouldn’t think to brew my own cuppa. So, I can’t answer the question about brewing, but I can tell you my fav place to drink it…. We have this gorgeous mountain that overlooks the entire city, we can drive our cars to the very highest point. I adore sitting in the sun, sipping my coffee planning my adventures. Best way to start the day. 🙂
