    Camp coffee advice wanted

    I used a small mesh ball on my last trip, fill with fresh ground coffee, it hangs on a chain from the rim of your mug. Just pour hot water in, and leave it steep for a few minutes :) You can pick them up on ebay for a few quid, just search for "mesh ball tea leaf strainer"
