I've got one of those. Makes great coffee but can be a bit of a pain for boiling over onto the fire. No problem with the petrol stove under it but can be a pain in the wind over a small fire.
, but what you drink is yet another thing you need to match to the trip in terms of what supplies you can pick up, what your body needs and what might get you some help from the locals after a chat over a cuppa:
Coffee: Too much caffeine for very cold weather and can be a PITA to make, but tastes Ok black.
Tea: Better for getting fluid into you, water can be boiled in a volcano/Kelly kettle but really needs milk.
Green Tea: As above, but doesn't need milk, oddly tends not to offend people who view caffeine as a drug.
Hot chocolate: The drink for very cold weather, but takes up four times the space.
I tend to carry a tea pot and mostly go with the tea or green tea. I carry sugar cubes as although I can't stand them the rest of the world seems to prefer caffenated syrup
