Got one of these for Xmas

Bodum Travel Press

Absolutely superb, take that and a large bag of ready ground coffee. Not very exotic but I'm on Tesco Italian just now and it's pretty good :)


Cheers

Cool. I'm buying one of those, although I probably shouldn't. I'm prone to ODing on the caffeine.

Kinda pricey and it's all in French. Description could be telling me that it is the shittiest coffee making device ever and will probably blow all the fuses in your truck! Does look quite cool though.

Kelly kettle all the way for me, lives in the back of the car along with some firelighters and some sticks.

If I'm really stuck and just need the hit I mix two or three 3-1 sachets or similar with some bottled water and have that. Apart from that it's underpants all the way. It works even if you don't have coffee grinds.
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.

I like the idea of the press. Looks like GSI Outdoors do a press/cup thing. Poss' a bit bulky for the rucksack ? Sorry Paul, don't like the sound of the pants thing. :sick:

I'm just doing Starbucks Via's packets now (just mix with hot water). I doesn't seem like instant, just very finely ground coffee, good flavor and real kick. Super light and easy, have them in a ziplock with some tea bags and True Lemon packets. (Edit: and some bullion cubes)
