If you haven’t heard of the hashtag #CoffeeOutside google it now. CoffeeOutside is literally having your coffee, outside! Usually with your outdoorsy buddies, outdoor! Hahaha! The fun part about it is the process of having your coffee fix outside of your house. Outside of concrete walls. And no, having Starbucks coffee outside does not count as a “Coffee Outside” experience.
Coffee Outside is all about the preparation to destination. From packing your coffee kit at home, to riding your bike wherever your pedals may lead you to, and ultimately, arriving at your destination to brew your own cup of coffee outdoor, surrounded by nature.
Call me crazy, but most of the time, I bike tour just to have #CoffeeOutside.
- Camping stove + butane (R.O.X.)
- Oversized stainless camping mug (gift from Dex)
- Water container
- Sugar and milk mix (adjust to taste)
- Enamel coffee mug (Rodel Guinto)
- Wooden clothespin (Japanese store)
- Small pouch (bought from Go Girl Expo Bazaar)
- Handkerchief (to use as a pot holder)
- Ground coffee + coffee/tea filter
I’ve tried a lot of coffee kit but this one is the kit I’m sticking with. Why? Because it’s light, compact, and hassle-free. Sometimes, I don’t even have to bring my stove, butane, and oversized stainless mug. Most places I go to have available hot water. Unless I plan to go to a very remote place where communities are too far apart from each other
10 Steps to #CoffeeOutside:
Before your trip, be sure to pre-pack your ground coffee inside coffee/tea filters at home. This will save you a lot of space in your bag and will let you have your Coffee Outside experience sooner.
