- Use a clean pan. Clean cooking utensils ensure a successful end result.
- Measure cold, fresh water into the pan.
- Bring the water to a boil and lift the coffee pot off the stove or campfire. Remember that the handle of the coffee pot can also be really hot on the campfire.
- Dispense the coarse coffee into the water and stir. Use a measuring spoon (approx. 7g) of coarse coffee powder, for example Saludo coffee per cup, and add it into the pan.
- Bring the water to a boil, but do not keep it boiling. The ideal temperature for extracting coffee aromas is 92-96 degrees.
- Remove the pan from the stove or campfire and allow it to stand for about 5 minutes. The aromas of pan coffee are best preserved at about 80 degrees. The aroma of pan coffee retains only for about half an hour. If you need to store the pan coffee for longer, pour it into a thermos jug.
- At home, you can pour the pan coffee into a serving jug heated with hot water and serve immediately. At campfire, pour the coffee in a mug and enjoy it surrounded by the peaceful nature.
This is how you make good pan coffee on the stove or over a campfire.
