How to Make Blackstar Cowboy Coffee around the Campfire

The Cowboy Way

1. Fill a pot or coffee pot with cold water and after you’ve had your *fire going for a while and have a nice bed of coals burning red.  (Click here to learn how to build a great campfire.)

2. When the water's boiling, add your coffee.  The amount of coffee you need will vary, but aim for two tablespoons of coffee for every six ounces of water you use. If you like your coffee more on the strong side, add a third tablespoon!

3. The pot or coffee pot off the fire, cover the pot if that’s what you’re using, and wait until all of the grounds settle at the bottom — it will take four to five minutes.

4. You're done: Just slowly pour the coffee off the top or ladle it into cups, and you're all set.
