You’ve got to love the great outdoors. To be out on the wild frontier where the singing of birds harmonizes with the undertones of portable electronics. This is where the magic happens. Despite all the wonders offered by the wilderness, one thing is always left out: a great cup of coffee.
Several coffee brewing methods don’t require the use of machines. Cowboy coffee is a simple but delicious method of brewing coffee that doesn’t require any special equipment.
What you will need.
- Freshly ground coffee
- Small pot/ Kettle
- Source of heat.
- Boil the water on the gas, electric stove.
- Remove the water from the heat and cool it for roughly 60 seconds. The ideal temp should be between 91-94 degrees Celsius.
- Pour the ground coffee. Use approximately 30g, of course, grind coffee and stir for 15 seconds.
- Leave the lid off and place the pot/ kettle back on the fire and let it simmer, to ensure you don’t want the water to fully boil.
- When the coffee is simmering carefully take the kettle off the heat and set the coffee aside to brew for a couple of minutes.
- Add some about 3 tablespoons of cold water to help the coffee grounds settle faster.
Alternatively, add crushed eggshells to settle the grounds and remove bitterness as they are slightly alkaline to offset the acidity.
Serving: It’s time to enjoy your coffee.
- After the grounds have settled, pour your coffee slowly
- The basic way of enjoying it is black, but if you prefer, you can add milk or natural sweeteners.
