Camp Rohrbach Campfire Coffee

I went to the store in Forks, Washington to replenish my coffee supply.

I got to Camp Rohrbach at Yellowstone Park, went to make coffee, to find I had bought percolator packs, great for the kitchen at home, inappropriate for the basket of a camp fire coffee pot. I remembered John Gierach’s campfire coffee and improvised. I filled the old coffee pot with water and two perk packs and let it boil for seven minutes It was delicious!

This accident resulted in innovations to the Camp Rohrbach kitchen.

One of the annoyances of washing dishes with limited water at Camp Rohrbach is coffee grounds. They seem to get into everything. With Perk Packs there’s no more used grounds in the dishwater. No more spilled coffee grounds in the camp pantry. No more losing the infernal glass knob. No more bent coffee basket and stems. Just excellent coffee with no mess and Perk Packs fit in the back pack compactly with no spillage.

Point to remember

Perk Packs make life in Camp Rohrbach easier. Try Perk Packs in your back country camp too.
