GSI Personal Java Press
Price Paid: $19.95
Now here goes one of those creature comforts I just won't do without, my coffee lol. I have used several other methods and presses for coffee in the backcountry. This press is the best one I have found so far.
It is lighter weight and a bit larger than the previous model coffee press from GSI. With a coffee press it is recommended that you use course ground coffee but this model works just fine with the standard medium grind that is readily available at any grocery store for use with electric drip coffee makers. It is very durable and comes apart for easy cleaning, nesting, or easier packing.
