Lexi Dowdall 's Bio

Position at Backcountry: Marketing Writer
Life Passion: Skiing
Secret Hobby: Arts & Crafts of all types
Weakness: Cheese & Thrift Stores

I grew up in the shadows of the Wasatch range in Salt Lake City, Utah. I left for a spell and realized the great mountains of Utah are nothing short of spellbinding.
I LIVE for skiing and try to log as many days as I can.

I'm slowly improving at mountain biking, but I only just started a few summers back because someone told me it would improve my skiing. I hated summers for the longest time, but mountain biking is helping, as does my new found love for paddleboarding.

In my free time, I also write reviews for Blister Gear Review (www.blistergearreview.com) because I think reviews are crucial to making gear purchases. (ditto) It's so important to know what to expect when spending $$ on gear. I try to be as fair and unbiased in my reviews as possible and I avoid buying crappy gear at ALL costs.

My hobbies include terrariums and other crafty pursuits because I don't own a television.

I like to show that Utah isn't a lame place to live on my blog:

Grind it up

Great to be able to adjust the coarseness of your bean grinding.
You can achieve finily ground espresso quality java or rough and tumble, coarse grounds for good old fashioned cowboy coffee.

A bit small to grind large batches of coffee, this works well for 1-2 people, but you wouldn't want to be grinding the entire group's beans as I was - whew! Workout!

Turning action is smooth, and results are delicious.

ELEGANT!

This stove system is bomb. The strainer/press is very high quality and the fit is so tight that you seldom end up with crunchy grounds in your coffee, which I hate. I've tried a BUNCH of coffee systems, and this was my favorite.

Simple to use, elegant and super versatile with the entire Reactor kit, overall a humdinger. Excellent choice for backpacking, and you can caffeinate up to 3 people with the 1.7 liter pot.

Super Simple

For the minimalist and or the superlight backpacker.
This nifty lil guy folds up to practically nothing.
Simple and easy to use, just make sure you invest in a high quality, conical filter. (I prefer unbleached - because, yuck).

Add grounds. Add coffee. Let 'er rip.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Hard to imagine anything more delightful.
Espresso anywhere - really.
One of the coolest wedding or 'super special' gifts you could bequeath to a really, really loved one.

I'm a gadget hater (I don't have a TV and couldn't work a GoPro for the life of me) - but this thing is rad. Spend some time with the directions so you understand the process, it's worth it.
Once you get the hang of it you'll be pulling shots of delicious dark nectar in no time.

Super fun and satisfying to take the ritual of espresso out into nature without electricity or batteries. I have a plug in model at home and this is every bit as delicious, and takes approximately 1/17th the space.

Always a HUGE hit around the AM hours at camp. You can't go wrong. Period.

Probably one of the greatest gifts you could ever provide to another human being, this thing is pretty next level.
ESPRESSO UNINHIBITED.

No batteries, no electricity - just fine grounds and hot water.
Camping just got more luxurious by about 3,000 points. It does have a bit of a learning curve, make sure you read the directions.
Once you get the hang of it, you'll be pulling shots of delicious nectar in no time flat. I'm not one for gadgets (I don't even own a TV) but this thing is rad.

Taste - because, duh, you want to know...
Delicious. I have an espresso machine at home at this tastes every bit as delicious as my electricity sucking home unit. Prettttty impressive.
I also have a battery powered milk frother that I throw in for good measure if I'm feeling creamy.

Words cannot describe this wonder. You simply must try it.
