Skill #18 Brew camp coffee
According to old-time trappers, coffee should be "hot, black as a bat cave, and strong enough to walk off on its own." Start your brew with fresh ingredients-cold clean water and freshly ground beans. Bring a measured amount of water to a boil, take the pot off the fire, stir in the coffee (one rounded tablespoon of coffee per cup of water, plus a couple more "for the pot") and let it steep, tightly covered, for 10 minutes. Settle the grounds by dropping a cold stone into the pot. If you don't burn your lips, it isn't camp coffee.
