There are no secrets to good campfire coffee You need to start out with a large coffee pot filled with water a little more than 3/4 of the way full. Put in a handful or so of ground coffee. Put coffeepot over fire and heat to boiling. Allow to boil for a few minutes. Remove from fire and add a cup of cold water. The cold water will cause the grounds to settle to the bottom. The first cup will have some grounds in it. The trick is to get someone else to take that first cup.
