HOW TO MAKE GOOD COFFEE
Here are some basic guidelines to make good coffee

Percolator would be preferred, but
cowboy style coffee is also good.
It is important to use fresh coffee beans.
To keep your coffee beans tasting their
freshest, store in an airtight, light-blocking
container. Keep in a dry, cool place.

Keep the coffee pot clean
(Rinse and wipe dry with paper towel).
Use clean, cold water.
It is always best to grind the coffee beans just
before brewing, but requires a grinder. We usually
grind at the store. (The best way to grind coffee beans
is with two rocks, like Indian grinding stones, but it takes
longer than to actually brew the coffee.

HOW TO MAKE COWBOY COFFEE
Most people have never made coffee using the
cowboy style, but it is fast and easy, makes a
fantastic cup of joe and there are less parts to
clean than a percolator. Give it a try and you
might be hooked.

COWBOY COFFEE - METHOD 1
Fill a pan or pot with water and add the desired
amount of coffee. The coffee grounds will float
on top of the water. Bring water to the boiling
point and remove from heat source. Tap the side
of the pot with a spoon and the grounds sink to
the bottom.

COWBOY COFFEE - METHOD 2
When making coffee you don't want it to actually
boil or it will have a burnt taste. This is for people
who forget to remove the heat source when the coffee
starts to boil as described above. With this method
you bring the water to a boil, remove from the heat
source, then pour the coffee grounds on top. Wait a
couple minutes, then tap the side of the pot and the
grounds sink to the bottom.

FROM THE BLOG:
We used to brew our coffee outdoors, but one day it
was too windy and decided to make it inside the car.
It worked perfect. Making the coffee in the car means
we can stop almost anywhere a brew a fresh pot. Using
a dog leash we hang the coffee pot from the visor and
rear view mirror and place a propane torch under it.


Making cowboy style coffee in the car.
Most people consider us crazy...

THE PLUMBERS TORCH
Use the 400g. blue propane cylinder(TX-9 Container)
that you buy at any hardware store and are usually
reasonably priced. You will also need the torch head,
a one time purchase of about $20. We use BENZOMATIC
because it is made in the USA and good quality.

We use the camper's 9 cup coffee pots that are lightweight
and have the handle on top. Cost around $10.00.

UPDATE:
We got a ticket in California for obstruction of view.
The dog leash and flashlights were still attached to the
mirror. It should be noted that the reason they pulled
us over was to search the car and the ticket was as the
officer said, "I have to write you up for something."

WARNING:
If you burn down your car, that is your problem.
Stay in view of the torch at all times in case of tip over.
Follow all directions on cylinder.
