Can y’all believe it’s August already? Goodness me…
I saw on Facebook that it’s National Coffee Month. As an admitted and unashamed Coffee Addict/Slut, I am thrilled to have just another excuse, er… reason to celebrate it.
But before I begin the celebrating, I decided I’d look into something fun. Cowboy coffee. Boiling 3/4 cup grounds in a quart of water, then letting it sit for about 5 minutes while the coffee settles to the bottom, doesn’t sound real appetizing. At the same time, if I were out camping, which unless there’s a cabin with all the comforts of home I wouldn’t be out camping, but if I were and desperate for coffee, I’d have to give it a try.
Then of course, there’s the option of brewing said coffee with some egg shells which is supposed to ‘clarify’ the coffee.
It all sounds real strong and sadly, I’ll be renting a place with a coffee pot.
But it is fun learning about stuff like this. I love it and will likely put it in a book somewhere because it’s something I’m passionate about. And maybe just once, I’d like to be sipping coffee from this cup poured from the matching percolator:
There are several blends of Cowboy Coffee available for our electric coffee makers…
Larry’s Beans here in North Carolina
There are others too. And in my research, I found a Cowboy Coffee Cocktail…
I love coffee and I love learning about it. Have any of you, dear readers, ever had Cowboy Coffee made over an open campfire in a tin or enamel camping percolator?
