Today I want to share and talk about the 3 Best Ways to Make Coffee During a Hiking Trip!

This weekend I went on small hiking trip. I’ve done all of the Tour du Mont Blanc, but this time I did part of the Tour du Mont Blanc. I started in Les Contamines, France and finished in Courmayeur, Italy! It was around 52km of hiking and it was so incredible!

I want to share the different coffee making choices I used during my hike!

1. Instant Coffee

Instant Coffee. Simple easy. I think the best thing about Instant Coffee is that you just need hot water and one of the coffee packets!

Pros: Light weight. Small. Easy and accessible.

Cons: It may not taste good or fresh. Lots of garbage (remember, leave no trace).

Here’s a good one:

2. Moka Pot

I LOVE my little one cup Moka Pot!!! This is a personal favorite and something that even though it’s heavier than all the other options on this list…it’s something I’m still going to bring with me because I love fresh brewed coffee!

Pros: Fresh, amazing, original tasting coffee. Also, super duper cute for photos!!! (Like the one with this post.) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cons: A lot heavier.

Here’s the one I used and have!

3. Drip Coffee

Similar to Instant Coffee because you are just heating up water, but tastes soooo much better and way more fresh!

Pros: Lighter than the moka pot. Tastes better than the Instant Coffee.

Cons: You have to carry coffee filters and the coffee grounds. Also, the coffee cools off because you have to wait for the coffee to drip through the coffee grounds.

What type of way do you make your coffee? Which way have you used when hiking? Did you enjoy reading 3 Best Ways to Make Coffee During a Hiking Trip? If you did, you may enjoy reading 8 Things You MUST Carry with You in the Mountains. <3

  1. If we were with you, I would want my Kuerig with latte whipper because itโ€™s my favorite. I would make Poppy carry It up the mountains with solar panels to make it work. I would carry his toothbrush and small folding hairbrush for him in return. ?โค๏ธ

  2. Ahhhh…. this is brilliant. I work overnight shift and generally wake up in the late afternoons and only so much daylight left sometimes, so it would be great to be able to take the java on the trails. Thanks for the tips!

  3. Funny. I use the Moka Pot everyday. And I have for years. It makes the richest and tastiest espresso shot. I love it. Better than Starbucks any day. And lately I have been traveling with it. I have a big one at home and the tiny one for travel. Yep and the instant coffee packs for hotels.

  4. Woooahh.
    This is a great article. I would totalllly recommend MY method for making coffee in the mountains:

    4. Smoke It
    Similar to drip coffee, smoking coffee is an easy way to get high while in the mountains.

    Pros: Super light, all you need is a cigarette wrapper and coffee grounds. Pour coffee grounds into the cigarette, and light it up. *inhale* Delicious.

    Pro x2: The coffee is always hot as you’re smoking it.

    Cons: None.

  5. Great ideas! I just went on my first backpacking trip in Yosemite and used the Starbucks instant you recommended. Maybe it was the fresh air and beautiful view but it tasted pretty good! Have to try that Moka pot.

  6. There’s nothing better than sitting on top of a mountain with a fresh cup of coffee. Thanks for suggesting a few ways to make that happen.
