How We Picked

There is something to be said for spending time in the great outdoors. The fresh air and beautiful landscapes seem to be able to melt away all of your problems. Nothing could make the experience better – except a cup of coffee in the morning.

Coffee has a way of making everything better. Whether you are a casual drinker or you cannot make it through the day without a full pot, coffee is an essential part of every day. Millions are made daily and coffee shops, cafés, bistros, and even convenience stores from the sale of coffee. But, what happens when you go on a camping trip?

Where’s the coffee?

Unfortunately, coffee seems to take a backseat to adventure. But, it does not have to be that way. In fact, there are plenty of camping coffee makers that can brew a flavorful, aroma-filled, soul-touching cup of coffee.

Today, we are going to show you the ten best camping coffee makers for 2019. We have looked at hundreds of models and these are the ones that consistently ranked the best. We looked at portability, functionality, ease of use, weight, maintenance, and several other factors.

#1 Coleman QuikPot Propane Camping Coffee Maker

Coleman QuikPot Propane Camping Coffee Maker


  • Fuel Source: Propane
  • Number Of Cups: 10
  • Weight: 10.9 Pounds

When you think of the outdoors, it’s impossible not to think about Coleman. They’ve ingrained themselves into the very fabric of the outdoors. Which is why this Coleman QuikPot had to be on our list.

This is one of the larger coffee makers in our top ten, but it essentially brings the kitchen to the outdoors. For starters, it comes with a glass carafe that can hold up to ten cups of coffee. Being that this is for the outdoors, we would have preferred a double-walled carafe for insulation purposes, but the QuikPot does have a warming feature that can be used to keep the coffee warm until the pot is gone.

As far as weight is concerned, this is a little bulky/heavy. At 10.9 pounds, it’ll make a long hike a little more grueling. Of course, you’ll also need to make sure that you have a propane bottle handy. We recommend the Coleman 16oz. Propane Cylinder which should easily last you for a full week of adventure. Coleman claims that you can make coffee for 4.5 total hours before the tank will run out. Since each pot takes around 20 minutes to make, that would give you a total of 13.5 pots or 135 cups of coffee.

As this is a fairly large setup, make sure to protect it from accidental bumps and other “oops” moments. If you prefer, Coleman does offer a protective cover that can be placed around it for an extra layer of security/comfort.

What We Like

Bringing the kitchen to the outdoors seemed almost impossible, but Coleman has turned camping into an outdoor wonderland. The ten-cup carafe combined with the propane-fueled heater makes some soul-touching coffee in record time.
