Careful.

A rabbit hole indeed! I started about 8 month ago I guess with an air pop popcorn maker. It worked. It was fun for a bit.

Been using a FreshRoast 800 for about 4 months now. Does half pound at a time. I mess with the heat and temps. Been taking notes so I can reproduce the roasts I like. It really only takes me about an hour total time to roast for the week. I bought a cheap RV range hood off amazon. Made a stand. I pump it out of basement window insert I made real quick with plywood.

The ones I buy the most are El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua. I do get others to try. Have some Costs Rica and Burundi to try.

With all that though I like having the green beans since they last a long time and I could manage with a cast iron pan over a fire if need be.

For family camping, We've had all the different types of coffee makers... percolators, french press, 4 types of pour-overs.
We still use the pour-overs for that style of camping, got tired of the cleanup and extra effort and time the others needed.
But these days, most of our camping has shifted to backpacking, so Starbucks Via instant is my go to now. Less prep and trash to haul in and out.
YMMV

A jet boil and some good “tube” coffee is all you need. Otherwise move into a Starbucks.

Instant coffee would be the easiest for preps. But I think an aero press would be a good back up. I’ve been thinking of getting on for my espresso since my moka broke.

Whole bean, vacuum sealed with backup manual grinder and French press.

It might not be the easiest, but it is the most versatile. Ground coffee beans make excellent compost for your garden.

I’ve been drinking instant for a few weeks now and for the money and the ease of making it, it’s perfect. It’s not as good as k-cups but it’s more than acceptable and perfect for prepping. I do want to get my hands on the Trader Joe’s instant coffee when things return to “normal”.
