Minipresso Winter Camping


Winter camping is one of our favorite things to do!  It can be very peaceful; the snow will often deter most large crowds, which means you’ll have primo camping locations to choose from, and quiet nights to enjoy.


One of the best parts of winter camping is enjoying a nice warm meal and hot beverage, which is why we love bringing our Minipresso along.  Here are some tips for warming up water while winter camping:


For colder temperatures, liquid fuel stoves work better than canister stoves.  This is because cold temperatures create low canister pressure.  Nothing worse than pulling your stove out to prepare dinner and discovering it doesn’t work in winter temps!


Si vous êtes en haute altitude, vous utilisez plus de combustibles qu'à basse altitude. C'est une bonne idée d'emballer du combustible supplémentaire, particulièrement pour le camping alpin.  


On windy days you will need a windshield to keep the wind away from your flame.  Luckily the snow works great for this! Dig out an area in the snow (at least 1 foot deep) that will work as shelter while you cook.


Si vous utilisez une poche à eau pour stocker votre eau, faites de votre mieux pour empêcher l'eau de sortir par le tube. L'eau contenu dans le tube gèle très rapidement et rend l'accès à l'eau de la poche difficile. Une astuce qui fonctionne pour nous est de souffler dans le tube après avoir bu afin de faire sortir l'eau de celui-ci. Nous recommandons aussi d'isoler le tube si possible. 


And last but not least, pre heat your Minipresso before use.  The Minipresso makes the best crema when the water is very hot, so doing a hot water run-through before you add the coffee is a good idea, especially if the Minipresso is very cold.


Now you’re all ready to enjoy portable espresso in any season, so get out there and make sure to share your #minipressoadventures with us!
