Spending time in nature can be a great way to relax, unwind and center yourself. Transcend the banalities of city life and reconnect with the abiding natural rhythms of the earth and experience the beauty of the untrammeled wilderness.

The trouble is, there’s no espresso in the wild blue yonder. And what’s a day without espresso? Well, if your need for quality coffee drinks has kept you from a transcendental experience a la Thoreau, you’re in luck. Here’s how to make an espresso in the wild.
