Coffee Emergency Kit
Good thing for me though, I keep a coffee emergency kit. You know, much like the “In case of fire, break glass” box you may have seen around? Yes, don’t tell me—I already know I need an intervention.
Anyway, it contains coffee “singles” much like tea bags (and taste quite good I might add—better than some of the instants). Two companies that make them are Maxwell House and Folgers. My emergency bag also contains a can of evaporated milk. I don’t use sugar or artificial sweetener, so that’s one less thing I have to worry about.
Now what if your problem was not lack of coffee but you are unable to secure hot water? Well Wolfgang Puck thought he had the answer to that issue and put out a self heating can of coffee. But alas the product had to be recalled because it was, you guessed it, heating itself at will and was a danger to all. This product has since gone back to the drawing board but don’t worry, I am sure it will resurface again.
I personally use a pretty safe way of getting hot water by using a heating element (a metal device with a handle that you plug in, stick it in your cup and it boils water). Now if you don’t have electricity, well then you will need to consult with your nearest camping gear store.
