I read a review that says it tastes better than other production methods.
This w/e my mate had his Mocca pot. It tastes better, I need to get a Mocha pot for car camping, cause you know, I don’t go HEAVY!
Whack a stainless steel filter (instead of paper) into the Aeropress and it will taste much much better! Love my aeropress if i make coffee for myself only. and agree that the Bialetti Mocca pot is da bomb for car camping.
if hiking in a group i normally take the GSI plunger - get 3-cups out of a brew and the neoprene sleeve is also very nifty for keeping the brew warm that keeps the bru’s warm
Prepping for the Otter, I’m actually first looking at how I’m going to brew coffee than finding cooking pots
I find the GSI Java press very alluring (also read the review on it here), but wouldn’t something like the Sea To Summit X-Brew Coffee Dripper (https://www.outdoorwarehouse.co.za/product/xbrew-coffee-dripper) make more sense? It’s much lighter and smaller to pack. I do only Mocca pot at home but that little pot can get heavy. Anyone used the fold up coffee dripper before?
Raaito. We are doing an overnight hike in Feb so I’ll test and report back. I like my coffee super strong and as bitter and dark as the night, so let’s see if I can get a spoon to stand up straight in the brew
Got a Sea to Summit X-Brew - works great! You need to use a bit more coffee than you usually would for a french press and slowly poor the water over. Other than that, this might be my new go-to coffee maker, thanks @Ronel
I used a coffee dripper for many overnight hikes, it works great and is super light. The drawbacks are however (1) uses a lot of coffee (2) the filters get irritating after a few days. Ive also had to fold the end of the filter so that it doesnt tear (many a torn filter coffee mud mistake took place). And the pack of filters is always in the damn way.
Not a problem, it was good to test it The Amazon import costs costs get calculated when checkout on their site - you don’t have to yet, but you do need to go through to the payment stage to see the full amount. The import costs aren’t too bad - they seem like a lot compared to what you’re purchasing, but if you compare to a similar local product, it’s not bad at all.
Schweet I ended up buying the GSI Java Press as I figured that making a cup of coffee for more than one person on a long hike, might lift the morale And yes, it makes a great cup of coffee. Will get the Stanley later on for day hikes as my small flask started to leak. I smelled coffee all the way up the mountain & couldn’t understand why until I opened my bag lol
I prefer keeping gear super light, so my best coffee is made before I leave and stored in Hydro Flask. No need for a coffee mug, etc. In winter thing get a tad heavier, since I use my Stanley Adv Vacuum Flask 1L for coffee, or soup, and a mug.
