    @Evan Burck I'll have to come to your place and see your coffee program. Anything you got going on whether beer, pink tacos and likely coffee is worth taking notes on. Tip of the cap to you Evan. A connoisseur of the finer things.

    I'm working on perfecting my specialty "Pain Forest" blend sourcing the finest non-organic, conflict-zone Robusta beans. This brew will be the go to beverage for the hard core OP winter steelheader.

    The books I read, the Mountain Men say the making coffee don't take as much water as you think it do.

    WFF has a weak ass coffee game. You guys need to step your shit up. I just read 4 pages of this crap and nobody has answered the most important question: how do I get a fresh pumpkin spice latte on the river?

    Although you may need to empty all 5 packets into your cup to get similar hazmat levels of caffeine & sugar compared to your mobile order.

    Don't forget to toss in an adipose fin before grinding the beans.

    I had to do it...gas station coffee was just too unreliable. Many a time they didn't have enough to fill a thermos at 4:00 am.

    Camping is a different drill. I get those Folgers coffee in the tea bags. I have a small percolator pot minus the percolator shit, and I just bring water to a boil with four coffee bags in it and dump the results in my thermos. The used bags go in the fire, or neatly into a trash bag.

    I'm all about the simple...I can be perfectly happy for weeks on canned and freeze dried food, dried fruit and trail mix, and a little jerky thrown in to spice things up.

    +1 aeropress, only way to roll

    I'm not as fancy as Evan, but I only drink blue star cause it is the best for commercially produced coffee. I also rock a manual grinder and electric when my vehicle is near. Whole bean only.

    I have been brewing coffee cold for years, way before it was cool. Ha!
    My contraption of choice is a Toddy Maker.
    More recently I was given a Nespresso machine, and I also really like it. But hot coffee does not lend itself as well to the hot weather in SoFla.

    I should add that my favorite coffee is Kona and I mix my cold brew with lots of milk. Smooooth!

    Why that is the container of a blue collar laborer! Will it work on the water? It's too big around to go in my yeti cup holder. I don't know, I'm skeptical.

    Jet boil and French press. It all goes in a waterproof bin and under the seat. Easy unit.

    So did you get the reel to match the boat or the boat to match the reel?
