Fresh Coffee Kit for the Trail

Wanted to share a really cool everyday carry I put together for my 5th Gen: A road coffee kit.

Goal: Be able to pull over and make awesome pour-over coffee -- not B.S. instant coffee, but real coffee -- on the go, either for the trails or whenever I get sick of sitting in San Francisco Bay Area traffic and need a break.

What's in the Kit:

1) A hand-crank coffee grinder and a jar for beans. I went with this awesome little grinder:



2) A backpacking stove and fuel to heat up your water on the side of the road:



3) A light-weight pour-over cone, filters, and a pot to heat your water in. For the cone I went with this guy:



4) Finally, a mug, a can of condensed milk for creamer (if you're into that), a spoon to stir, and some baggies for your used coffee filter once you're done (unless you're planning to toss on the side of the road):



5) A bag to throw everything into. I used this really cool mil spec mesh bag from Raingler:



And here's the set up in action. Really fun excuse to pull off, take a break, and pop open the hatch for some fresh coffee:

Very nice. I have a similar style grinder. As far as that style of pour over goes I found that I almost always had cold coffee. I went with one of these and have been very happy. Keep in mind I'm almost always in the mountains in Colorado so mornings are always chilly to cold. And I hate cold coffee too

Coffay!

Good fresh coffee is very important to lots of us. At home and on the road or trail.
My favorite is the Aeropress. From the inventor of the Aerobie flying disc.

Dude that's a perfect morning kit right there, bacon, tooth brush, Hawaiian roles. To top it off, that wilco/detours could possibly double as a morning shit can if you position yourself accordingly.

Ah yes the moka. I have the same one, bought in Italy when we lived there. Nice enough for two people, plenty for one, and makes a damn strong cup.

I used mine on a campfire griddle plate a few times but i really need a small propane heater.

Your pre-grind, pre-measure, vacuum seal method is a great idea. Hand grinding on the road is a slow process and a pain in the arm for two people at two cups each.

I use a burr hand grinder https://www.amazon.com/JavaPresse-Gr.../dp/B013R3Q7B2 for all my grinds.


Pour over is my favorite
Aero press gets me up quick
French press for the the crew


I want to go camping now

I use a stainless french press so i dont have to worry about it breaking.

I dont really go out for too long so i just grind enough before hand.
