I head over to Velcro in VIP and vist the one and only Mr. Roasted & Toasted!  It's a beautiful thing to have his coffee first thing every morning.  That 30 second walk is a killer, though.

I was thinking of trying something new this year, but still not completely sure about it yet. Was thinking of getting a carton or two of the premade iced coffee. I'm just not completely convinced it will hit the spot in the morning the way I will want it to. I could always do what I have done past years and just walk to dunkin.

I make a cold brewed iced coffee concentrate ahead of time and keep it in the cooler.

Add 1/2 concentrate, 1/2 water or milk of choice (soy, hempseed, half and half, etc...), sweetener, and pour over a full cup of ice.

Easy peasy. Always ready to drink. No stove needed.

And don't forget a warm bag full of those mini donuts from the vendor in west camping!

I'm bringing 2 gallons of pre-made iced coffee in gallon jugs. I really don't care if my coffee is hot or cold...I love both. It takes a long time to do because my coffee maker only makes 10 cups at a time but everyone raves how good it is. I think the secret is getting the proportion of water to coffee correct. I use 1 LEVEL teaspoon per cup and it always comes out great.

Don't bother. Brew your own and bottle it. Pain in the ass but it sure is worth it. I wouldn't trust any pre-made. Freshly brewed Chock Full of Nuts Coffee (best I've ever found). Hell I might even bring 3 gallons.51AXJ5J7KML._SY300_.jpg

Jimbo,
You got it right on brewing your own iced coffee, but it is not such a pain in the ass considering the time and wasted coffee (cold dregs) it saves later.

I get a pound bag of whole bean at the local Starbucks and have the barista grind it to a Turkish grind (powder fine). At home I add it to 1.5 gallons of cold water and mix occasionally, usually at room temperature, but one can leave it in the fridge.

Filter it through a collander using a big filter or paper towel. I use an extra quart of water to rinse the powdered beans in the filter because they soak up a quart. The result is 1.5 gallons of iced coffee concentrate. Refrigerate and use as needed. Mix 1:1 with milk or water and pour over ice. One can heat it up too if desired.....

Cold brewing is gives a smoother, more flavorful result than hot brewed in my opinion.

This year we will have the Kati Kati blend.

I hear you but to fill 2 gallon jugs with that much coffee probably requires me to brew at least 15 times. That's what I meant. Time consuming but worth it. And that cold brewing sounds interesting if it is indeed smoother.

Tyedyedee,

I have not tried that Ethiopian bean you mentioned. Sounds interesting though, perhaps I will share a cup with you guys this Vibes if i can crawl over one morning.

For those who drink it black then just mix the concentrate 1:1 with water and pour over ice.
If I don't expect to finsh the cup before the ice melts then i put less water/milk.

At home I have microwaved the reconstituted concentrate for a hot cup and it gives good results, but for hot coffee when camping i prefer a french press with fresh ground beans.

Stay caffeinated my friends!

Some of the food vendors sell coffee. You don't have to walk to Dunkin.

but if you do walk over, I'm percolating on the bus stovetop. I need a cup before I have the strength to crawl over to Coffee Kenny. Coffee vendor is usually tasty, and I go there if needed before here's room to cook in the bus, or on late night rambles.

Well for all those folks who've never tried it, franklinstower recipe for slow cold brewed ice coffee is most tasty. The cold brew process brings out flavores from the bean that are lost in a hot brew. The hints of chocolate and earthiness are a sublime yummy. I look forward to his coffee every year. Come visit and I'll share a great story about swapping ice coffee for various sundries. Three vibes back in the heat wave we had ice coffee all weekend. Well just imagine what folks will trade for cold caffeine. ;)
