Wake Up With Bush Smarts Camp Coffee Kit

camp coffee kit
We recently stumbled upon this website called Bush Smarts, which is basically full of really cool small-batch, hand-crafted gear for folks who like to do outdoorsy rugged stuff, like woodsman suspenders, pack axes, and bear stars . One handy item we discovered on their website recently is their Camp Coffee Kit, which has everything you need to start your day right when you’re out there in the wilderness sleeping with the bears and the trees underneath the stars.

That includes two Kuska cups, one BPA-free bottle, 12 ounces of coffee from Guatemala, and the secret weapon: “a feather light mesh filter that brews superb coffee without a bunch of bells and whistles or moving parts.” Cowboy brewing inspired the folks at Bush Smart, except instead of using a bandana like the cowboys do, you use that mesh filter. Simply heat your water, put the grinds in the water bottle, then pour that piping hot water into it, let it steep, then secure the mesh filter to the top. Once it’s steeped long enough, pour that freshly brewed coffee into the Kuska cups, and there you have it — coffee for two.

In case you’re wondering what a Kuska cup is, here’s Bush Smarts’s explanation: “It has the traditional shape of a wooden cup from the Scandinavian Arctic, but is made from eco-safe resin that is incredibly durable and lightweight and doesn’t absorb flavors. Another update is a hi-viz reflective cord for keeping track of your nightcap around camp.”

This handy vessel will surely get more use out of it than the coffee mugs we keep in our kitchen. So next time you plan on going camping, bring the Bush Smarts Camp Coffee Kit with you; so you can get up bright and early with that dose of caffeine that will give you the energy to hike, hunt or hang out with your friends.

There's no shortage of sushi restaurants in NYC, but at the Big Apple's newest sushi omakase, entering the establishment requires a bit of intrigue. The Office of Mr. Moto isn't your standard sushi omakase — it's a speakeasy. The door to the restaurant is unmarked, and one could easily walk past without realizing it. To even enter the restaurant requires not only a reservation but also some detective work. First, prospective diners must solve a cipher in a letter (sent by email) before entering that code on a PIN pad at the Victoria-era mailbox at the entrance.

The best tequilas you can buy for less than $20
These wallet-friendly tequilas taste much more expensive than they are
best tequilas under 20 espolon tequila

Tequila can start a party. It also can end one very quickly. Your focus should stay on those that can star at any gathering. A solid tequila doesn't have to break the bank, either. Also, keep this in mind when looking for quality tequila, affordable or not: Make sure it's 100% agave. Those headache-inducing tequilas of your past were more than likely only part agave -- they just need to be 51%. The additional sugar in those was likely your culprit.

All tequila hails from the Mexican state of Jalisco. All start as Blue Weber Agave and take a wonderful ride to reach their final destination on a drinker's palate. This Mexican spirit has a beautiful, rich history. The excellence of this well-made spirit can be witnessed even in inexpensive versions -- neat or mixed into a tasty margarita.
