    Mornings made easy.

    Wander drowsily around the campsite each morning in search for GSI Outdoors' Commuter Java Press Mug, and get your much-needed coffee faster and easier than ever. This clever contraption combines a coffee mug with an integrated French Press so you can press, drink, and repeat until you're ready for the day. Double-wall insulation keeps your coffee piping hot (or super chilly if you prefer it iced) for hours, and the PlusFoam neoprene sleeve makes sure your hand doesn't burn.

    Leaky But Still Good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    What I like:
    - Definitely makes coffee easy at the campsite with minimal parts (i.e., french press and mug in one)
    - Lightweight and not bulky (again, all-in-one design)

    What I don't like:
    - Sometimes the inner cup — which you press down in order to trap the grounds at the bottom between the two layers — doesn't make a perfect seal, and you get coffee leaking out the side when you go to pour it
    - Sometimes coffee leaks up between the two cup layers as you're pushing the inner layer down

    Is it worth $23? I don't know. Maybe. I'm not returning it, but I would ideally expect more from a setup like this.

    Coffee + Camping <3

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love love love this coffee mug that was actually recommended to me by my Gearhead (Jen T). The first time I went camping without coffee, it was a disaster, and so I quickly picked this guy up. I was a little apprehensive after reading the reviews, but I have yet to be disappointed.

    When brewing, I will usually add 2-3 tablespoons of coarse ground coffee, and then boil about 1 cup of water. When I pour the hot water in I leave about 1 inch of room from the very top. After 3-4 minutes I put the inner cup in and press down slowly. I haven't had any issues with hot coffee spurting back up at me or with it overfilling or leaking this way.

    A couple things to note is that this really isn't made to be tipped over like a Contigo is (my daily commuter mug when not in the back country). I tipped it over once and coffee was spilled everywhere. Also, I tried carrying the mug while on a easy hike by holding the little black handle on the side of the lid, but this slowly pulled out the inner cup out as I was walking. So really, it's meant just to be held on the fabric part as a cup. Regardless of these minor things, I don't regret this purchase and am SO glad my gearhead recommended this.

    I recently took a photography class through the University of Utah and my professor (Lane Peters @lane_peters_multimedia) shot this photo of me enjoying my morning coffee while waiting for the sun to rise at Capitol Reef NP. Thanks GSI Outdoors for making a great mug!

    Mini Amazing French Press

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I took this on a camping trip up to the Uintas, the fast and delicious hot coffee that it made was absolutely perfect for the 45 degree mornings. The only thing I would have changed is how long it stays super hot. For the price it doesn't get much better than this! If you are a coffee person this will be your morning go to.

    Makes great coffee!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was not disappointed! This java press is easy to use (once you get the hang of it), and makes great coffee! Using regular ground coffee I did notice some grounds at the bottom of my cup. Using a coarser ground coffee fixed that issue though! As some other reviewers noted, instructions would have been helpful. If you add too much water it can leak when you pour the coffee out, and if you press the inside cup down too far it gets stuck (and is very hard to get out!) After a couple trial and errors though, I got the technique down and now can make a great cup of coffee in just a few minutes!

    gets stuck

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I took this on a 10 day trip thinking it would be pretty nice. I had tried it out at home and it worked fine. However, on day one of the trip, the inside cup got stuck and stayed stuck the entire time which meant I could only use it as a cup, not a coffee press. I ended up drinking cowboy coffee from my dinner bowl instead.

    *update
    So, after getting the mug home, it took a while to get it unstuck. I still occasionally have some trouble with it, but not like the first trip out. Most of the time it works fine. It is not easy to clean without some water pressure. It's still better than drinking my boss's black tar from my dinner bowl. I will hopefully upgrade soon since I pretty much live in my tent all summer long for my job.

    Great on the trail/camping

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    We use this when we take to the trails knowing we're gonna stay overnight. We both love our morning coffee before starting the day. Use is simplistic by packing the grounds and sugar into a ziplock bag which is pre measured and placed into the Java press. I four starred it only because it will seep if tipped over from the very top on the lid (Gsi logo area). But it works great and won't go camping without it.

    "I use it pretty much everyday"

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    "I take coffee grounds to work and if I need a little pick-me-up, I throw in some hot water! Simple as that. The press insulates well so the coffee doesn't get cold too quickly. It travels well and is very light weight."

    Super simple!

      I bought two of these (one for me one for the miss) and they work great. It's very easy to get a cup of coffee wherever you are. I even use mine at home when I'm on the go. It's a perfect thermos. It is a bit leaky though. I tried to hike with mine and ended up making mess.

      Perfect for backpacking or travel

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have used mine for backpacking and now use it to brew perfect coffee every day while living abroad in Thailand. After being used everyday for 4 months it is still holding up really well.

      I few tips to help brew great coffee and avoid the contents from spilling over the sides.
      1. Use 4-5 tablespoons of coffee
      2. After pouring in hot water, let it sit for 45 seconds then give a brisk stir
      3. Let it brew for 7-8 minutes
      4. Plunge slowly, if it starts to get stuck, back it up just a bit then continue slowly downward.

      Enjoy your delicious coffee and be thankful its not instant coffee!

      Cool little mug!

        Let me start by saying I haven't used this mug yet. I bought it so I can make coffee on backpacking trips without bringing multiple items. From the looks of it this thing is exactly what I was looking for. Simple, High quality and will keep me from getting cranky before a long day of hiking.
