"I've seen many people double the quantity of ground coffee beans, expecting that their favorite morning beverage would turn stronger. Well, the fact is: it's going to become bitter, not stronger."
If you want stronger, grind the beans finer.

Hands down, the best cup of coffee without using an espresso machine is using the Aeropress. I have been using it exclusively, at home and on paddling trips, for almost 3 years now. I have tried every other method of making coffee while camping in the backcountry there is. Most any of them done properly will render a decent cup, but none of them beat the Aeropress. Lots of great reviews out there if you Google it.

I have to add my endorsement of the Aeropress to Bearlyalive. I have been using the Aeropress for about 3 years myself and now have 3 units: one at home, one at work and one in my camping gear. Hands down, it makes the best cup of coffee I have had.

Maybe I'm just a bit of a Philistine when it comes to coffee (having grown up in the era of instant coffee and percolated coffee).

"For each cup you make, use one spoonful of coffee, no more, no less (don't cheat!) and add one for the pot."
