    Close, but not quite. You put water and a handful of coffee grounds in a small, tin pot. Put that on the fire and start it cooking. Now you start your bacon and eggs, but put the eggshells to the side. Once the bacon and eggs are finished the coffee pot should be boiling good. Take it off the fire, throw the eggshells in to settle the grounds and take a touch of the bitter off, then pour into your tin cup.

    I drank my coffee this way at home for years. The tin cup was reserved for camping trips but the coffee was made the same whether it was on the kitchen range or over a campfire. I think its also know as hobo brew. Puts coffee from a french press to shame.

    Hmmm I always drink french press so I'll have to try this with the eggshells ... the actual method I use for camping is I have a diffuser (tea/coffee) that goes in my nalgene bottle and you can "stand brew" or "cowboy method" per the instructions... stand brew is you put the diffuser in the top, pour in the hot water, then put the coffee in the screen/diffuser then cap the bottle and stand it upside down for x minutes... the cowboy method is the same but instead of putting the grinds in the screen you put the water and grinds in the bottle then use the screen to stop the grinds from pouring into your mouth, I kind of like this method "the cowboy method" but it's totally store bought and made up by marketing, but it works. GSI is the company that makes the diffuser and Nalgene is of course the bottle company.

    I like yours though, rugged.

    hey pioneer
    my grandmother used to tell me that is how she made her coffee for the church ladies
    with eggshells to clear the grounds but she used an urn, not a tin cup
    if you ever have any cardamom drop it in your cup instead of eggshells, it works great for taking the bitter off too,
    and it won't raise your cholesterol


    stone, starby's only TASTES strong because the beans have released oils, it really
    has very little caffeine because roasting kills it.
    your stand brew sounds pretty tasty though

    I drink coffee while developing film in either D76 1:1, or ID11 1:1. I sip scotch while developing prints in Ilford Paper Developer. Thankfully, no one has found that single malt will develop anything other than a nice, gentle buzz. ;-))

    Haha oh man! I suppose you could use it as a wetting agent though, but it would be such a terrible waste! Lol

    It's called an H2JO haha

    It will develop a far-from-gentle hangover if overindulged in!

    1: reversal (dektol mostly)
    2: xtol
    3: c-41 (powder kits)

    I use reversal for anything I want to keep, or for more seriousious work. XTol for everything else, but I am actively looking for a replacement. I just can't come close to using it up before it dies on me. I probably will go Thornton 2 bath or some pyro I can make from scratch, when I need it.
    Get it right in the camera, the first time...

    I wonder if the OP meant B&W developers... Maybe not but it throws off the numbers for those that do all 3 (E-6/C-41/B&W) so even if they only use 2 B&W that's puts them over to the max... Hmm
