Je ne suis pas sûre que cette cafetière puisse encore servir.
Louis: Il s'agit d'un processus de prise de café de spécialité, Martine.
interesting set up for joe, Louis. i like it!
Louis: It is so nice, we had to start a fresh brew after half an hour.
I bet you enjoyed that coffee Louis! Superb image.
Louis: We did, Richard, thank you.

This is a fascinating photograph.
Louis: Thank you Philine.
There's nothing sweeter than campfire coffee Louis, when you are desperate.
Louis: First one to get up stirs the coals alive, add a few pieces of wood and push in the water boiler. We use only coffee freshly ground before we left civilization. The next person up, cleans the coffee kettle and the bag. The bag is loaded with fresh coffee. By then you can add boiling water and let the lot stand for a few minutes. By then, everyone is up - that smell is too good. Desperation only comes in, when you don't get your fix smile
For most, it's the ONLY way to start, Louis, I know! Well done.
Louis: I don't know how we all got to be like this, but it is not bad, being like that, Ginnie.

1 beker koffie voor ontbijt met muesli and the rest of the day water....
I think the coffee brewed on the fire will give you 'hair on the chest'... Love the picture though smile
Louis: This coffee is too nice to leave for a long time. Leaving it, will get you hair on the chest, drinking it will kick-start your day, Astrid.

I cannot argue against you, Louis.
Louis: I don't know how we all got to be like this, but it is not bad, being like that, Ray.
Just finished mine and it was very good. Campfire coffee is way better though. Love your shot.
Louis: Thank you Mary. Part of campfire coffee is the setting.
I'm sure it will be even better using water from a kettle boiled in this manner
Louis: There is a funny shaped black can behind the kettle in this picture. That one holds water and can be placed directly on the coals or in the fire for faster boiled water. In the kettle is a bag which gets filled with ground coffee for each fresh brew. When making coffee, the first item into the kettle, is boiling water from the other can, which gets topped up for future use. The bag with ground coffee is hung into the kettle with boiled water. The brew is kept warm by the coals. Coffee that stands for longer than an hour in this way, will get bitter.
Eh? Where's the espresso machine?
Louis: If you know the operating instructions, this set of cans and the fire, can brew perfectly good espresso.
Tea for me please!

Like the picture very much
Louis: Since there is a separate can of water, that is boiling most of the time, we can wet your teabag, sir. Thanks Bill.
I like a nice array of shadows...
Louis: Early morning casts long shadows.
Excellent image, Louis! Expertly done!
Louis: Thanks a lot, Elizabeth
