      Nothing beats a good cuppa coffee(or tea for our Brit friends) to warm-up and give a caffine blast while chasing Coues during January in the mountains of So. Arizona, Yes, it does snow here and is prob the coldest I’ve ever been(Ny cold doesnt compere, must be a “dry cold”).

      I’ve found a 2hour Sterno, stainless steel cup, Mexican instant coffee(super flavor and higher caffine count) and a few rocks to hold everything in place works great,packs well,low scent, and fast(except at higher alt’s)…

      (Photos arent working????)

      Here I thought your title was about “iced” coffee, which is a nice summer drink…

      But here it was about you being “iced” and making Hot Jo!:roll:

      Sounds great. I’m a coffee fiend myself. Not a connoisseur, but a fan. Good coffee is better than bad coffee, but bad coffee is better than no coffee.

      Have you tried the coffee bags? It’s like tea, but it’s coffee. Heat water and let it steep/brew? I have used them quite a bit in the woods and weeds. I remain a little skeptical of instant, although they have really made some progress the past few years. Credit where it is due.

      Yes those “coffee bags” are good, but the Mexican instant coffee is my fav…

      There is a concentrated liquid coffee mix that comes in little plastic packages, really good, different flavours and after sending some to friends serving in Afgan, they report ” MORE please”…I’ve put them on bagels for a super caffine blast, but they are alittle harsh that way…

      With scenery like that all coffee will be great. Nice basket quiver too. That needs to be one of my next projects.

      I like the idea of this liquid coffee concentrate. I haven’t tried it yet but it sounds promising. Good tip.

      Some of you may be familiar with this:

      Camp Coffee, by Jerry Vandiver.

      “Oh, but run out of coffee … it’s the end of the trip.”

      I love my coffee, but be careful of those metal coffee cups.

      When I was a young lad my Father & Mother had some of the enameled metal coffee cups (you know the blue speckled ones)in our camping kitchen & I learned a lifelong lesson. THOSE METAL COFFEE CUPS WILL BURN THE LIPS OFF YOUR FACE!:(

      1shot, what’s the name of the Mexican instant coffee? There are several Mexican grocery stores in our area, and I’d like to try it.

      Have also made my own coffee bags by tying a coffee filter with dental floss around a good scoop of coffee. Makes pretty fair brew.

      Murray, Cafe Bustelo is the name, if you can find the Mexican ‘Nescafe” instant it’s way different then USA product and very good also…

      The liquid coffee is ‘Java juice’, expensive, but goood stuff…

      Somewhere I read about or by coffee addicts in the woods, I read that Starbucks makes an instant this is righteous.

      I tend to NOT drink in the woods or on stands… BPH causes all sorts of issues of the old GIGO syndrome! (goes in, goes out).

      Not sure I can find that stuff up here in the great white north, but I’ll certainly try!! Thanks!

      1 shot,

      Sounds like you could start a side biz supplying our board members with some MX instant coffee! 😆
