Glad you get on with the Aeropress, The little grinder i mentioned before is about the same length but narrower that the Aeropress And it works a treat. The grounds are fine to just right for the press. I'd say yes it's worth $55.

When we get to OZ next year - how about a coffee

I love my aero press, makes a good Americano style coffee, although the lip on the plunger has broken after two years of just being round the house,


I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned that you can get an attachment for a jet boil which turns it into coffee maker.

I think it's made by a third party though rather than jet boil.

Smartcafe Cafetiere Hot Mug

Seen these on amazon UK. Not as high tech as the aeorpress or the handpresso but light, cheap and easy. Not tried one, but thought I would post here.

It did get 4.5 out of 5 from 639 review, so can t be too bad.

Yes they are good. I use one every morning at home (just waiting for it to brew while posting this.) and very handy on the road.

I love the fact that this thread has been going for over 10 years. Amazing how many ways to make coffee.

How about one of these:

Looks light and portable. Got something similar at the office which sits over a glass cup.

Is it me (probably) but I've heard all about this caffeine rush but never experienced it. It probably only affects some of us. I can function pretty much the same with or without coffee/tea although we habitually have a small cup of filter coffee mid-mornings and perhaps a dozen mugs of tea throughout the day/evening. No exilarating symptoms though

Mexican Coffee

1. Bring water to boil. 1 cup equal 1 serving.
2. Stir in 3 tablespoons of dark roasted coarsely ground coffee, a chunk of Mexican cinnamon stick and a chunk of Piloncillo (Mexican consolidated sugar) (Suppose you could use brown sugar to taste)
3. Bring to boil again. Strain and serve.

This will make the most delicious cup of coffee you ever had and is a good way to make coffee anywhere.

I got one of these, absolutely brilliant, in fact I've been buying them as presents for friends- puts a smile on everyones face. It's also well insulated so keeps things hot when it's a cool morning.

Nescafe Clasico Individual packs. Best instant out there IMHO.

As the propaganda reads:

"NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ is the leading coffee for Latinos in the U.S. It is 100% pure coffee, made from a blend of selected coffee beans, carefully roasted to capture its full flavor and aroma. NESCAFÉ® CLÁSICO™ has a unique taste and is a familiar "cafecito" that Latino consumers know and love from home. "

I have been using an 'msr commuter press' for a while now. Its half way between an aeropress and a cafetiere. Easy to clean. Doesn't need extra filters, makes a decent brew and stay warm for long enough. The only downside is that the lid is not sealed. I got mine for about £14 when it was on special offer.

I have a wicked little MSR stove and a kettle, but I have just realised that my simple dream of a morning cup of real coffee in a remote and exotic location is under threat. The plungers you buy in supermarkets are glass or pyrex, and can break.

I have seen stainless plungers, but I was wondering what everyone else does for that morning boost, and also whether I can really justify taking a plunger and coffee at the expense of something 'more necessary'?

Hola!

I carry a small Bodum Kenia (french press)... the glass was replaced by "unbreakeable plastic"

Saludos,

I use the coffe-pot for the trangia 27, it works well enough for me. I prefer a grind for boiling coffe, but any grind will suffice. Otherwise, I always try to check out the local coffe when possible ...
