    Replacing instant

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I always brought Sbucks instant packets of coffee on my trips and it did the job, but got to be pretty pricey at like 7-8 dollars for an 8 pack. I bought this filter for its packability and hopefully money saving prowess. I always French press fresh coffee at home, so this thing doesn't make as good of cup that I get at home, but for the money and weight it is worth it. You can either make cowboy coffee and strain it through this, or add coffee to this and steep. Try to press the grounds a little too. That helps if you like it strong.

    Solid for pour overs and tea

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The fact it's super light, easy to clean, and fine enough mesh that it can do coffee or tea makes it greatly versatile. It's been solid to take with me either camping or kept in my desk. I suggest this as a must if you're big on drinking anything but water on a nice long trip. Solid use with a price that's awesome.

    The lightest and compact ever!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is all I need for backpacking! I use tea/coffee in my mug. Very easy to clean and to store away. This filter goes with me everywhere I go. I just boil hot water just outside of my tent to make my coffee to stay warn inside my tent. :)

    Camp coffee

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I tried it at home to find the right grind several times. (Cuisinart burr grinder. Two notches below medium setting.) We went backpacking this last weekend and it was the hit of camp. Of the people who tried it they loved it. I personally will continue to use it over and over. Good coffee beans are a must for sure. Stumptown is my favorite. I filled it one half full of grinds per one 10 oz. cup. The second cup on the same grinds is ok but not at good as the first. It definitely takes time to do it right but well worth it. I swirled it as I poured the hot water through. Overall impression.....Perfection on the trail.

    Camp coffee

    I once hated coffee..

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I was never the type to just absolutely need coffee before breaking camp, my wife however loves her coffee. So in an ever evolving effort to be a good husband I packed along single serving instant coffee packets. Well suffice to say they're not the best.. I have a little GSI halulite kettle and this little filter fits right down inside of it, along with my MSR pocket rocket in its protective plastic jacket. I also pack a zip lock bag of freshly ground coffee beans. It's really remarkably simplistic but the results are fantastic. When we're in the back country it's far from "Glamping" but when you can start your day off with a fresh cup of roasted southern pecan coffee... it almost feels like it. I suggested it to a friend who looked at its simple design and balked at the 15 dollar price tag, to lend them some perspective I reminded them that 8 packets of Starbucks VIA instant coffee is about 7 bucks.

    Too good for just camping

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the best infuser I've ever used. No more instant coffee on camping trips for me. I've also stopped using my French press at home in favor of this as well - fewer grounds end up in my coffee, and the cleanup is so much simpler. This thing is fantastic. I only wish it were narrow enough to fit in the top of my insulated Kleen Kanteen insulated bottle.

    Overpriced

      Let me start by saying that this is an overpriced Finum Teeli filter. You can usually find those for under $10, and I have several tea infusers as well that I picked up for $1 or 2 each.



      These are nice for around the house or office though. I don't always want to deal with cleaning out my bulky french press, so I'll throw in some freshly ground coffee into the filter, and then after a few minutes of brewing in your mug, you can dump it in the trash.



      There are better things to use for backpacking as well. It takes up as much room as a small cup, yet it doesn't hold an ounce of liquid. Tea infusers are a quarter of the size and much much cheaper.

      You can't brew coffee in a tea infuser, but if you're not grinding your beans and brewing it right then and there, your coffee isn't going to taste that great anyways. For this reason, I always pick up some instant coffee for camping. Same crappy pre-ground coffee taste, but ZERO cleanup.



      Great product, don't get me wrong, but pretty expensive for what it is.

      Seriously, look up the Finum Teeli

      Super Easy, low maintenance

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      My daily routine is taking coffee with me to work, but having a thermos that only carries a single cup for the day can kind of put a damper on things when I want a second cup. Hello MSR Mugmate! Being able to take grounds with me to work (or tea) and just use it like a pour over is super helpful to get that second kick out of my day. Also very handy in backpacking trips when I want to cut down on how much waste I'm having to use over filters. Plus it's nice to have a screen for filtering water from streams, too. At least the big particles, not the bacteria obviously. Great to have, easy to use, sturdy for a good long time of brewing . Excellent choice for on the go needs. Oh, and the price is crazy low for how handy it is.

      Coffee lover's best friend

        This thing is small and light weight, perfect for backpacking. It makes a good cup of coffee for only 1 oz. Before this thing coffee lovers either had to settle on instant or those bulky french presses. You don't have to add weight to your pack by carrying paper filters like other drip makers out there. It is a little pricey for what it is but it does a good job.

        Must be alien technology

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        After using this I tossed my french press and my pour over coffee making-thingy.

        It fits perfectly in my Snow Peak cup so it adds nothing to the weight of my bag which is perfect for me.

        This is seriously alien technology that can make coffee drinker out of non-believers!

        Does its job, and lasts

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The surgical grade mesh on this thing is the main benefit. I use them at home and on the trail as long as running water is available for cleaning. The result is drip-filter-quality coffee and awesome tea at home. I wish the lid had some sort of seal so you could reuse ground or tea leaves, but that would require some major design changes which might hurt the simplicity and ease of cleaning (just need powerful spray or a stream as others have mentioned)

        Great product

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Like most hikers that are avid coffee drinkers I was at my limit with the instant coffee options. I was ready to improve the quality of my camp coffee. I believe this product does exactly that. Being able to actually use fresh ground coffee instead of the instant mess is a huge upgrade. The filter does a good job of keeping the grounds in. My only negative is that it is difficult to clean it thoroughly while you are out in the bush unless you are near a creek. Having said that, making the 2nd cup tastes as good as the first. Overall I am very happy with the product. If you are looking for better tasting coffee without the added hassle of having to buy and use paper filters, this is the way to go.

        practical

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Let's be honest. If its been 5 years since you last went a day w/o coffee, because 5 years ago while camping you were left stranded, helpless and had to sweat it out, then you probably have a method of brewing coffee for the backcountry or while tailgate camping. But for those of you who want the easiest, most reliable, fastest way to catch that sunrise, this filter is the way to go. The little lid that comes with this filter seems useless so I threw it out.

        practical

        Best Way to Make Coffee

          This is the best way to make your coffee in the backcountry. It's simple, clean, and just easy. I don't feel like it's worth the price but my sluggish, uncaffinated mornings are too much to bear--for my friends. Apparently, I'm a diva when I don't get coffee...?



          I recommend this product despite the price.

          Second Best for Coffee

            I have used the Snow Peak Drip for years at home and on the trail, but thought I would give the MSR product a shot. The filter worked ok, but it quickly became packed with the inevitable fine grinds. It didn't impact the coffee too much, but it was a little harder to clean on the trail than expected. The fact that it is super lightweight is nice, but overall I prefer the Snow Peak Drip.

            So does this work on a Nalgene (my version of a backcountry mug)? And how does it work? You just put ground coffee into the filter, let it soak for a couple minutes in hot water and you have coffee? Thanks...sorry if I sound like an idiot.
