Ikea RÅDIG Espresso Pot
If you like your coffee strong, there's nothing stronger than moka-pot!! Do you like the GSI single-shot espresso maker? Well this makes six shots of that same strong coffee in one batch!! Believe it or not, this is my camping coffee pot. It's a moka-pot style coffee maker, made by IKEA, and it's all stainless steel!! I find it makes superb coffee that could wake the dead, and it's about the same size as a standard 1L Bodum or Nalgene. Taste (9/10): If you heat slowly and remove from heat when the… Full review
Jetboil Coffee Press
Great way to have non-instant coffee on the trail! However, the cleanup process can be quite messy and H20 consuming if in an area where water is scarce. I bought this for my Flash stove as a way to have an alternative to instant coffee. In general I think it's a great idea! However, you do consume quite a bit of water cleaning up the press and the inside of your Flash. For that reason alone I'm debating if i'll take it along on my solo Alaska backpack trip. Also, some folks complained of grounds… Full review
Right up front, this lightweight, compact coffee press is absolutely the best way to make coffee! It's fast and extremely easy to use. Setup, brewing, and cleanup takes less than 2.5 minutes. I love my coffee, and the Aerobie AeroPress is hands down the best coffee maker that I have ever come across. It's so good, that there are almost 35,000 positive reviews and how-to videos on YouTube. I highly recommend watching some of those videos. I highly recommend any one of the inverted methods. Setup,… Full review
MSR MugMate Coffee/Tea Filter
Simple, light and effective. It might not deliver the richness of a press but at just one ounce it more than delivers the goods for coffee-loving backpackers. As a sunrise coffee freak I've tried a couple of different coffee methods, including a lightweight press and collapsible filter, but the MSR Mugmate is the one that finds its way into my pack. It fits perfectly in my Snow Peak mug and at only an ounce, it's the one that makes the most sense. I've found that a grind that is too fine takes a… Full review
Jetboil Coffee Press
Pretty disappointed with this and I won't be taking it on the trail anymore. I'm a coffee snob and drink it daily. I've used VIA packs for years and it looks like I'll stick to them. The grips on the sides of the pot are insufficient, so too many grounds make it into the coffee. Cleanup on the trail takes far too much water and makes a mess of a handkerchief or requires a paper towel. Don't waste your time on this. Stick with instant. Full review
GSI Outdoors JavaDrip
It can use the paper coffee filters, just like at home. This was a present this year and I used it for a weeklong camping trip. Disposing of the grounds from my French press was sometimes a hassle. This product solves that problem. It comes with a reuseable filter that I have not used yet, but the paper filters work great. The procedure I use is poor hot water into the coffee/filter until full. Let it drip and repeat. It makes about three cups. The coffee tastes great and there are no grounds in… Full review
Stanley Mountain Vacuum Coffee System
Makes fine coffee in a compact unit workable in a domestic setting or campground, but a tad heavy for a long backpack. My unit is now in use as my regular coffee maker. I will use it in the same manner on camping trips and possibly on backpacks where weight is not a big deal. The brewing pot and press surround a vacuum bottle which has tricked out lid assembly with two plastic drinking cups and a container which can hold coffee grounds for about two brews or sugar ad creamer packets. All in all,… Full review
Ozark Trail Collapsible Coffee Drip
The Ozark Trail Collapsible Coffee Drip is made of heat-resistant silicone, making this coffee drip both a pleasure to use and making for a great hot brew up. There is no metal to leave that metal taste and no plastic so there is no plastic taste either. Just the taste of your fresh hot brewed cuppa of coffee, tea, cocoa, hot cider, etc. Sometimes you happen across a gem of a find and it is a real SCORE. This product is one of those finds! The Ozark Trail Collapsible Coffee Drip is made of heat-resistant… Full review
Outdoor Products Coffee Press
Simply great! This is the simplest, most compact, best quality coffee maker I've seen. I use it several times a day and love it. The only thing i don't like is the lid's drinking spout. I drink really hot coffee, but drinking hot coffee from the lid burns my upper lip. I don't need the lid often, so not much of a problem for me! Full review
