Makes fine coffee in a compact unit workable in a domestic setting or campground, but a tad heavy for a long backpack.

Pros

  • Compact and self contained
  • Keeps coffee hot for a long time

Cons

  • Not ultralight
  • Handle on outer vessel is tricky

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, it is a compact and workable unit.

At home, I heat 500ml of water in a separate container, pour water over the grounds, wait and few minutes, slam down the press, and coffee is served—quick, easy, and delicious. The same process works in a campground setting.

The brewing pot is tall and skinny, not the best shape for efficient heating and the base is a bit thin to balance easily on the prongs of a typical canister stove, but I have lots of other vessels for that purpose.

The brewing vessel sports a folding handle on its side. When using it, I find it best to tip the full container before lifting; otherwise the handle will collapse.

The assembly is quality construction and should last a lifetime. Call me a happy, caffeinated camper.
