Although we are ready to give up a lot of things when camping, a cup of coffee is not one of them. If, like me, you enjoy these little moments of rest, you know how amazing your daily cup is when you drink it on vacation.
It reminds me of one of my last trips in Costa Rica: I woke up around 5:30 in the morning, and very slowly I brewed my coffee with a Chorreador in my little cabinas. I walked through the palm trees, cup in hand, and put my feet in the sand on the deserted beach. This coffee - which normally would have been rather ordinary - quickly became delicious in front of the sunrise and the Pacific Ocean.
Whether you sip your Aeropress coffee after a night in a tent or you drink a Cold Brew face to face with a gas station on a roadtrip, it will certainly taste better than it does when you're in front of your computer at work!
Think about your favorite moments from last summer and I bet one of them would involve a coffee outdoor. When we talk about coffee on vacation, we're not talking about coffee made with expensive equipment or professional barista techniques; it's a totally different experience, where there is no time constraint, where it's possible to enjoy the present moment and all that surrounds us.
Either way, there is no better way to enjoy a cup of Joe!
