Unless you like grounds in your coffee, save the cash and hassle. Even course ground coffee doesn't do the trick...
Titanium French Press
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
USE ONLY COURSE GROUND COFFEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! in a french press people. I never have grounds in my coffee using this french press! GSI makes a cool little coffee grinder that has an adjustable grinder for fine to course grounds. I am sure there are others, but I use the GSI model. I wouldn't trade for mine (press) and it produces such a fine cup of joe that I've been known to use it at home on occasion. Get ya some.
Very good but not sure its my first choice
Big Bird AZ wrote a review of this product which I agree with, and I'm surprised a lot of other gave this item 5*'s. Dont get me wrong this is a great little product, but the two issues I have with this item are 1) it's just a bit too expensive - yes I know it's Titanium and all that but at the end of a day its just a coffee filter, and 2) it doesn't keep all the grounds out of your coffee.
The fact that the filter lets some of the coffee through isn't really a problem, because as you sip away these grinds sink to the bottom of the cup and you don't drink them, but the filter does seem to be manufactured ever so slightly too small for the carafe.
I also agree that the grinds get stuck between the wire mesh and the filter which is a minor irritation.
The other point to make though is that I'm not too sure this is a great item to be taking on trips where weight and space savings are critical. I'm off to NZ soon and I think I'll be taking my GSI collapsable java drip instead because a) it is lighter and b) it takes up a lot less space, but I'm still experimenting with this stuff.
Like I said it is a great product, I do like it a lot, it is very light and as far camping equipment goes it is quite sexy, but I think a lot of people have the 'ohhhhh its titanium it must good' belief, and give it 5*'s, each to their own I suppose......
Snow Peak Titanium Cafe Press
the Snow Peak Titanium Cafe Press works great for camping and travel however be careful when pouring the coffee. Pouring it too fast will create spills, dribbling down the press and onto your shoe...
If you are considering this press, here is another option. The SP Trek 700 and the Jetboil Lid/Coffee press are compatible. You can purchase the Jetboil PCS lit for $6.00 directly through Jetboil. This combination gets you more coffee with a simpler press. The plastic wears out eventually, but is relatively cheap to replace at $17 for the press.
Will the press fit inside a snow-peak...
Will the press fit inside a snow-peak single or double 450 mug or the MSR titan mug? Or any other mug to save space?
Slightly Different Angle
Here is a closer view of the press filter media. THis is after a stedy month's use here in South America.
I had been looking for a replacement for my buffalo trading company press for years. I have been going ultra light, and she was just to heavy. This 8.8oz press was a dream come true. I spent 2 nights in the back country so it was the perfect chance to give this light lady a spin.
I heated the water directly in the cup leaving 1" at the top to start the press. The Ti vessel heated well and the handles never got hot. The handles are also big enough so that on cold mornings when gloves are needed you can still hold the press.
Pressure from pressing is conveniently released through a small hole in the top.
The filter is a combination of the fine metal mesh and a parchment like paper. I awaited my cup of Starbucks with the kind of expectations that you only have on a frosty morning in the woods with all the sights, and sounds that are implicate in those surroundings. I decanted the coffe AND!
Alas there was a lot of blow by of grounds. The filter was not working. Also grounds were trapped between the paper and the wire mesh making cleaning a hassle that required disassembly of the filter.
Clearly a bit of backwoods engineering was needed. I tried every combination of filter assembly. The issue is the rubber gasket has been manufactured to small to tightly fit to the walls without the parchment and the wire mesh being cut large enough to fit the edges. SO sadly there is no way to fix this manufacturing error.
SO sadly this light lady goes to back.
Just as advertised, lightweight and works great. I've learned to press the plunger down slowly. This helps keeps the grounds where they belong. If you hate grounds, don't dring that last gulp without looking first. You can store those little starbucks mini packages of ground coffe in the press between uses. At home I find it best not to store the plunger in the cup, the poly net filter tends to develop creases and folds (reducing filtration effectivity)(New Word!)
Snow Peak Titanium Cafe Press
Works as you would expect - put in good coffee and you get a good drink. Ultra light weight - packable.
thinking about switching from a percolator...
thinking about switching from a percolator to this press. maby a dumb question. how exactly does work.
This works like any other french press, you insert coarse grind coffee into the carafe (pitcher), add boiling water, stir and wait (time depends on desired strength). You then push the fine-screened plunger through the grounds/coffee mixture, which isolates the grounds at the bottom of the carafe, so you can pour off the filtered coffee.
Its a really elegant system that has a couple of distinct advantages. First, it has no disposable parts. Secondly, it produces a (some say) superior cup of coffee with a more pure flavor.
hope that helps.
Essential Camping Gear
Cowboy coffee every time, hope you like coffee grounds in your morning cup of joe.........
Must Have Caffeine
I can't live with my coffee when camping so I take this great little french press every time. Super light weight and easy to take apart to clean. The downside is coffee grounds in your coffee every time. I've been using mine for several years now and I have yet to have a cup of coffee without grounds in it.
Is the press handle (top) detachable from...
Is the press handle (top) detachable from the the press itself? What I'm trying to ask is "Can you drink out of this and still keep the grounds filtered?"
Performed a scientfic experiement to answer this question. The results are a resounding NO. The top handle is molded to the stem. The stem is threaded at the bottom. Unscrewing it causes the whole lower assembly to come apart (inside the cup). Lessons lerned, good thing to do every once and a while, as grounds have been hiding between the layers. In conclusion: NO for the drinking, YES for the cleaning.
Coffebreak in the Arctic
To brew a coffee is now possible due to a light and well functioning coffee can. The picture is taken in October in Norway during a rip in the Norwegian mountain range, Jotunheimen
Will make two cups of coffee- not more. Has one more filter than the bodum models, like a prefilter, which does a great job of keeping grounds out of your cup and also renders the rest of the filter elements more easy to clean. To pour cleanly:
1) Rotate the lid so that the small heat vent is on the handle side of the press.
2) Use the thumb of the hand holding the press to pull back gently on the rim of the lid, causing it to lift slightly. If you've let the coffee brew for 4 minutes (as recommended), then you won't get burned.
It's very easy to do and remember (it's a natural-feeling motion) and it will pour as cleanly as any other press.
Nice and light, smaller than I expected, think of it as a mini press. It will make a nice cup of coffee but it has trouble pouring cleanly. Consider it great for backcountry missions, but poor for replacing your base camp coffee system.

Big Bend Trip
I gave this as a gift to my girlfriend and we had a chance to break it in over New Year's in Big Bend National Park. We did a nice moderate 15-mile round trip overnight. This fancy little deal worked great. Always nice to wake up to a warm cup of jo. The filter kept most coffe grounds out. The spout to pour from is a little under-sized. Otherwise... supurb product.
My brother broke my glass press, and I replaced it with this one because I figured he'd be hard pressed to do the same with titanium. I combine this with a small hand grinder for incredible fresh coffee anywhere. It's durable, light, and fairly packable. Great for cabins, camping, backpacking, traveling, or just at home. The fact that I can boil water in the press is a huge bonus, it makes for one less container to carry. It's a little pricey, but high quality and so far seems to be indestructable. Recommended.
