wire around itself to secure it. Step 2. Put your ground coffee into the can and fill
the can to 3 inches from the top with water. Add as much or as little coffee as you want. Step 3. Put the can into your campfire and allow the

of the can. Step 5. Pour yourself a cup of strong, black cowboy
coffee and head out on the range. Did you know The coffee plant was discovered
