A highly debated subject close to the heart of most, if not all, campers...The best way to brew camp coffee. While watching Modern Marvels - Coffee this morning on the History channel, the experts say that using a percolator is the WORST way to brew coffee. I know that all perc users are now saying "you're full of crap, my perc coffee is great" The way a percolator brews changes the coffee chemically, making it bitter. According to the experts, the best way it to heat the water to just under 200* and pour into a french press, steeping for about 5-10 minutes. Doing it this way keeps all the oils and aromatics in the coffee. This will probably not change anyone's way of making their coffee, but this is what the coffee experts say.
