Coffee while out on trail?

How do you guys make coffee while out camping or on trail? I am a complete noob when it comes to cooking at home, let alone while out on trail. I need my coffee first thing in the morning, I turn into the Hulk without. So for everyone's safety, can anyone recommend a light, all-in-one solution?

Starbucks Instant coffee in the little packages are great and easy

Small french press from Ikea.. Boiling water and ground coffee is all you need..

Having said that, I stopped drinking coffee over a year ago :-)

This is my coffee rig. I use the inverter in the FJ to power the grinder. Whenever I go for an overnighter, or more, this is the first thing I pack.

Grinder
Whole coffee beans
REI mug
MSR Windburner stove (packs with small fuel canister)
Extra MSR ISOPRO fuel
MSR Pocket Rocket stove (backup to the Windburner)
Melitta filter holder
#2 paper filters
A few paper towels
Small tuperware for holding ground coffee
lighter

Re: Coffee while out on trail?

My coffee rig looks like @Primer 's, except I use an MSR Reactor and an Aeropress. I even have the same mug.

Reactor/Windburner heat up so fast you won't have time to prep the coffee before your water is boiling. Aeropress makes good, strong coffee and cleanup is almost effortless. Just remove the filter basket, pop the plunger out the end which pushes out the grounds, and wipe off with a towel or rinse with a splash of water. Whatever method you choose, an important thing to keep in mind is that the key ingredient in coffee is--wait for it--coffee. Most people don't use enough beans.

Lately if I'm on the road I often make due with bottled cold brew so I don't have to do any setup. I just want to get up and going. For camping or a group, the above setup works well.

Never been a fan of pre-ground packets. My friend @Solid E has a home Nespresso machine that is the best so far, but nothing like fresh ground beans. You are absolutely correct about not using enough beans. I also like waking up everybody in camp with my grinder...gets them going.
