We’ve heard there are a few people out there who like to go camping. It’s true. The lure of connecting with the great outdoors is undeniable, to some. To others (like us here at Virgin Hill) it’s a nice idea but will likely never happen.

In any case, for those of you who are campers (or if you ever find yourself with a broken coffee maker), we’ve got a great little very easy single serve coffee maker for you. This is what you need:

mason jar coffee

• A coffee filter (or paper towel in a pinch)
• Coffee, medium/fine grind
• A mason jar with the ring
• Hot water

Place the filter over the opening of the mason jar and push it down into the jar to create a good 2 inch deep bowl:

It makes for a pretty perfect cup of coffee. Then again, you can’t go wrong with Knowlton blend :)
