Join Backcountry Women as we come together for another great Backcountry Beans Walk - our coffee tasting & walk! The jury is out on the best way to brew coffee when camping or on a paddling or backpacking trip, so we thought we'd give a few methods a try, do some comparison tasting, then fill our travel mugs up, and go for a relaxed-pace hike at Bird's Hill Provincial Park.  And then we will leave you with enough coffee coursing through your veins to last you the rest of your day!

NOTE: participants are responsible for bringing their own travel mugs and dressing appropriately for conditions. We are providing stoves, fuel, ground coffee, creamer / dairy free creamer and coffee brewing vessels!
