Enjoying coffee with solar power

According to a consumer survey released by the National Coffee Association (NCA), a breakthrough in demand for coffee has occurred as the pandemic eases, with the amount of coffee consumed soaring to the highest level in nearly 20 years, and 66% of U.S. citizens now drink coffee daily. The coffee maker has become one of the most popular household appliances in American homes.

When is coffee most soothing? Probably on a winter morning, warming up the day with a sip of hot beverage; or while camping to make a pot of coffee and let the dense aroma relieve the tiredness of the journey. In this article, you are no longer limited to outdoor hand-cranked coffee makers, but how can use solar energy to make the perfect cup of coffee!

Portable Coffee Maker for Camping

There are many types of portable coffee makers that enable you to still enjoy your electricity-powered made brew during your camping trip, provided you have a solar generator with an AC outlet.

Some of the most popular ones include:

  • Portable drip coffee makers- These are smaller, usually single-cup serving models, of your favorite drip coffee machines that more easily fit into your camping gear to take with you.
  • Portable electrical Moka pots- These pots enable you to make fresh espresso anywhere and in about 10 minutes without the need for a stovetop like traditional Moka pots. Instead, it uses an electric hot plate to do its magic.
  • Portable pod coffee makers- These coffee makers are the same extravagant versions as your home machine but with a space-saving design that enables you to enjoy single-cup servings of your favorite pod coffee when camping and more.
  • Portable electric coffee percolators- These are smaller, electrical versions of the stove top percolator version but with their own plug for added convenience.
  • Electric French Press coffee makers- These are equipped with an electrical heating element that enables you to simply add water to the machine for it to heat before adding the grounds. Thus, eliminating the need to have to boil the water in a separate pot and then add your coffee.
  • Electric Kettles - These are great for making all other types of coffee that simply require adding boiling water, such as pour-over coffee, to help save on fuel costs.

How long can you power your coffee machine with a solar power station?

 The length of time you can power your coffee maker with a solar power station depends on the capacity of the station and the wattage of the coffee maker. There can be a big difference in power between coffee makers with different features and designs, and Togo Power has solar power generators of different sizes and capacities, so you can determine which one is best for you based on your usage scenario and needs.
