I’m kind of a backcountry-coffee-snob (like so many of us are), but not in the sense that I’m really picky about what I’m drinking. It’s just always one of the first things in my pack. Second best, alongside your Knorr sauce packets and ramen, is powdered apple cider. Super light, and one of the best fall-time recovery drinks. Sure, your palette becomes a little more critical this time of year when the cider mills are really gearing up, but who’s lugging a gallon above the treeline?
I take mine straight, but I’m sure this would be great hot-toddied-up. Got some recipes? Share ‘em.
