(Camping Coffee Maker)
Whether you are camping, at the local park or tailgating at your favorite game, the nCamp Café is designed to make espresso-style coffee anywhere. It is based on the classic Italian moka pot, which makes rich and flavorful coffee, but it is compact and durable. The Café is about the size of a water bottle and makes about 12 ounces of coffee (equal to 4-demitasse cups). It has folding handles and a nesting cup, making it easy to pack. The 13 oz. (.38 L) cup has a silicone wrap for grip and insulation. The Café is made of stainless steel and is designed to work seamlessly with the nCamp Stove. However, it also works with many other camping stoves. Designed in the USA.
Capacity: 12 oz (340 mL) or 4-demitasse cups
Height: 9.6 in (24 cm)
Diameter: 3.4 in (8.7 cm)
Weight: 27 oz (.76 kg)
The nCamp Café uses a brewing process similar to making espresso (only with less pressure). Just fill the lower chamber with water and the funnel with coffee (standard grind, not espresso grind), the heat. The water boils and is forced through the grounds, then the coffee collects in the upper chamber. Silicone-coated handles make it easy to pour, while the lid keeps heat in, while allowing you to check the brewing process.

• Q: Where or how do you get refills of espresso?
• A: We do not supply espresso or any other coffee with the kit but any ground up coffee can be used in the Café.
• Q: Is there a recommended coffee grind texture that is best? Where or how do you get refills of espresso?
• A: A fine grind works best, do not overpack the chamber with the coffee grinds. You can use anything coffee grind that you want, the café makes “espresso style” coffee and works similar to a moka pot.

Fascinating how easily, even while camping, we can become civilized with a simple cappuccino or espresso… this relatively inexpensive stainless steel moka pot worked well for me on a recent two-week excursion… no, it is not the best, most precise moka pot out there. The handles are a little flimsy and the lid, difficult to open without a handle, does not fit perfectly… however, it performed very well and delivered excellent espresso! The silicone wrapping the stainless mug had a peculiar smell… a minor point since I used a different double-walled stainless mug and subjected my daughter to the mug that comes with this pot. Not perfect, but still worth the cost!

Over Time it Has Become my Favorite Thing to Bring on Trips
Was tricky at first to figure out how to use but over time it has become my favorite thing to bring on trips! I often chase early sunrise for photos and with this coffee maker it allows me to go and adventure while with my freshly brewed cup!
Gourmet Coffee at Camp!
This thing makes some good coffee! The mug is awesome, and it’s cool that it stacks with the cafe for easy carrying.

New Favorite Portable Coffee Maker!
We like strong coffee mixed with condensed milk on the road and LOVED this product – nothing beats a fresh, hot cup of coffee when we camp out of our car or end a long hike. I bought this coffee maker with nCamp’s stove and prep board, which I also love. Such a good traveling cooking set! Highly recommend.
