Sure, Stanley coffee brewing gear is made for adventure. But why save it for camping, skiing or backpacking trips? In fact, you don’t even need to be the outdoorsy type to love our Classic Stay-Hot French Press, Classic Perfect-Brew Pour Over or Adventure Cool Grip Camp Percolator. Thanks to durable, stainless-steel construction, you’ll never have to worry about glass breaking or ceramic chipping. So, if you’re a coffee lover or know someone who is, check out our three favorite methods for brewing awesome joe — whether indoors or out.

FRENCH PRESS

Invented in 1929, the French Press is designed to extract the coffee’s natural oils and full flavors to make a strong, thick, full-bodied cup. Keep in mind that it’s common for some grinds to slip through the filter. (Some coffee drinkers consider this a plus!)

To start your French Press journey – or gift one to the coffee aficionado in your life — take a look at our vacuum-insulated Classic Stay-Hot French Press | 48 oz. This beauty features an easy-clean, stainless-steel filter, makes 6–8 cups, and keeps things nice and hot for 4 hours.

POUR OVER

For a smooth, flavorful cup, nothing beats this no-tech version of an automatic drip coffee maker. The process involves slowly adding water to the grinds, and then waiting a few minutes for the pour over to work its magic.

Our Classic Perfect-Brew Pour Over is a rugged, handsome choice, and comes with a stainless-steel filter. Another cool feature: it’s made to work with most Stanley mugs and vacuum bottles, so you can brew right into your vessel of choice. In search of an all-in-one gift? Go for the Classic Perfect-Brew Pour Over Set, which includes a matching Classic Camp Mug.

PERCOLATOR

Using steam pressure to circulate hot water through the grounds, this old-school brewing method is such a simple way to make bold, rich coffee with a touch of nostalgia.

Our Adventure Cool Grip Camp Percolator | 1.1 qt. is a stainless-steel wonder that not only looks great sitting on the stove, it’s designed to brew up to 6 cups in less than 10 minutes. There’s also a removable, silicone grip so you can safely take the percolator off the heat.
