From the equipment to the grounds, hotel room coffee can leave much to be desired. Some travelers opt to bring their own coffee beans, an Aeropress, or other brewing supplies. Here a simple solution that doesn't require you to pack anything — but still gives you a much better tasting cup of joe.
Over at Medium, Kent Brewster has shared his method for making cold-brewed coffee using hotel room materials, and it makes a lot of sense. Cold-brewed coffee is typically smoother, less acidic, and less bitter.
All you need is the standard hotel room coffee pot, coffee filter pack, water, and a tumbler (you can even use a disposable wax paper cup). Refrigeration is optional. Get it started before you go to bed and in the morning you'll have a concentrated, cold-brewed coffee that you can drink as-is or dilute with hot water.
Have you tried this, or do you have any other tips for making a decent cup of coffee while traveling?
