Whether you are traveling in a tricked-out van, a renovated RV, or simply in your car, everyone needs regular access to coffee. Sure, you could pay a fortune to get coffee from a café every single day but most of us love the simple life.
Additionally, gas station coffee is out of the question for those of us who are coffee aficionados. They never seem to be fresh and always taste burnt.
There’s no need to go out of your way for a daily dose of liquid energy. These three coffee brewing methods can be used to make your own fresh and delicious coffee while on the go. Read on to compare portability, power source, storage, ease of use, and cost!
Pour-overs are manual, so they don’t require any electricity or any consistent heat source. If you have access to hot water, you can brew pour-over coffee. Besides the benefit of not using electricity, pour-overs are one of the easiest travel coffees to brew.
All a French press needs to brew delicious coffee is hot water. It does not need any electricity or power source, which makes it the perfect off-grid brewing buddy. Unlike the pour-over, it doesn’t need a steady stream of hot water to brew.
French presses are as inexpensive as a pour-over but much easier to use. They don’t use electricity or take up space like a coffee machine.
Just like with all forms of vanlife, the right coffee brewer is a personal choice based on your lifestyle. It is important to consider the size of your brewer as well as what tools are necessary for the brewing method.
Whether you don’t have access to electricity or have limited storage space, everybody deserves a fresh cup of coffee while on the road.
