What's Sumatra With You? -- Part 2

 

Hello from where the cold things are, i.e. the neither regions of arctic Norway.

I quite like hiking as it is the ultimate way to explore the countryside of new territory and immerse yourself in the local culture.

It is cold up here, as in -10 Celsius and steaming, caffeine-fortified black gold has become a source of life, with the brewing process having become a daily ritual.

There is something that comes with nature that adds to the pleasures of sipping coffee.

Now, I am camping, not glamping, i.e. I packed light. While I tend to go minimalist while hiking, instant coffee is not an option as it just doesn’t feel / taste right and hardly constitutes the “ritual” I described earlier.

Neither is tossing the coffee ground into a pot nor creating a toilet paper coffee filter and hoping for the best.

I bring my Killer Coffee gear: An AeroPress that is reminiscent of a big syringe and allows for a quick brew using ground coffee:

Heat it up, add coffee, stir and press for about thirty seconds.

Yup, you guessed it – it tastes a bit more like espresso as you apply pressure. Fast, convenience and brewing the grounds with full immersion with the emission being grit-free.

Now, I also like to mix it up, which is when the cold drip coffee maker makes its appearance: Light in weight, all you need is a filter, coffee grounds and H2O and boom – you got a good ole cuppa going.

With the way Killer Coffee treats its Arabica while beans, they somehow manage to create a balance that is smooth and enjoyable yet kicking your butt and never missing to give an appropriate jolt in the caffeine department – be it with their regular or their new, more intense Darkerside blend.

An aromatic source of energy that kicks like an energy drink on steroids.
