I say if you can’t make the coffee you love while on a camping trip in the woods, you should re-examine your priorities. I’ve been doing simple no-electricity coffee for a long time and you should consider it — especially since it means you get a great brew that’s equally available at home or over a campfire.
One thing, though: french presses tend to be glass. There are other options, but I like this travel press from Blackbird, a local designer goods aggregator.
It’s your normal 10-ounce french press in function, but it’s vacuum sealed like a thermos to keep your drinks hot and it won’t break if you drop a tent pole on it. Plus, if you’re around Seattle, people will say “Oh, Blackbird? Nice.”
