How To Make Pour Over Coffee In The Hibear AF

There are few things better than the smell of freshly brewed coffee. Mix that smell with the scent of fresh mountain air and, well, that's the kind of pour over camping coffee that will rouse anyone from their sleeping bag. Ready to make everyone's morning?

Make sure you have this list of goodies packed:
  1. Hikers Brew coffee blend of choice (might we suggest the 6-Pack Sampler if you can’t make up your mind?).
  2. Hibear Adventure Flask (make sure you have all the parts inside!)
  3. Stove for boiling hot water
  4. 500-600 ML of water
  5. Any coffee add-ons you please (milk, creamer, sugar, cinnamon…go wild)..

Step 1: Set the Hibear AF up for pour over mode. Unscrew the lid and remove the cocktail shaker and filter from the flask. Flip the lid and screw it to the cocktail shaker (make sure to remove the filter first). Fit the pour over lid back into the flask.

Step 2: Add a filter (we suggest V60, but any kind will do) to the pour over lid.

Step 3: Open a Venture Pouch or measure out 5-6 scoops (about 36 grams) of coffee from your Basecamp Bag. Take a second to let the delectable coffee smell wash over your senses. Then, pour the coffee into the filter.

Step 4: Bring 500-600 ML of water to a boil. For best results, the water temperature should be around 200 degrees when you remove it from the heat.

Step 5: Slowly pour the boiling water over the coffee, using a circular motion to ensure that all grounds are wet in the process.

Step 6: Remove the coffee grounds from the filter and dispose of them responsibly. Flip the lip over and screw it back onto the Adventure Flask.

Step 7: Pour out a cup of steaming, magical camping coffee, and add any extras you desire. Savor the morning and prepare for the adventure ahead.

How To Make Effortless Cold Brew With The Hibear AF

Cold brew? In the wilderness? At the beach? In your tent? Yep. The impossible really is possible. While cold brew coffee used to reserved to coffee shops or home coffee connoisseurs, you can now make it anywhere and everywhere want. The perfect pick-me-up after a hot hike or the secret ingredient to a refreshing cocktail, coming right up.

No matter if you enjoy pour over or cold brew, it’s essential to make sure your morning ritual doesn’t come at the expense of nature. Following Leave No Trace principles is the best way to keep the outdoor areas we love clean. And coffee grounds are no exception.

When you’re ready to dispose of your coffee grounds, the safest bet is to toss them in with the rest of your trash. If you have a compost pail with you, all the better. Coffee grounds, just like Hikers Brew Venture Pouches are 100% compostable.

If coffee grounds are compostable, why not bury or scatter them?

Even though coffee grounds and Hikers Brew pouches are compostable and biodegradable, you shouldn’t bury or scatter them around your campsite. Coffee grounds can attract wildlife, which can danger the animals and other humans. Grounds can be harmful to some insects and plant life, too. Just like other foods and food waste, make sure to toss your coffee grounds in a trash or compost pin, or pack them out in a leak-proof container, like this. Once you’re home, you can add your compostable items to a backyard compost bin, or send them to a commercial compost facility.
