- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I'm with Chris on this one. I'd say this is better suited for overnighters where keeping things clean isn't a top priority. For backpacking trips I'd rather just use the jetboil like normal and then dump the water it a kuju packet. Seems to be a much easier way to go about things. I imagine this french press will not get too much use unfortunately.
Works well, BUT
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I had been eyeballing this for a long time and finally pulled the trigger on it. But before taking this press into the BackCountry, I decided to give it a little test run at home. Overall, the press did a satisfactory job, hence why I gave it four stars. The coffee turned out tasty, but there were a few grinds that managed to find their way into my mug. It wasn't a big deal.
However, I wouldn't recommend taking this on a backpacking trip. The problem is that the what do you do with all the grinds after. The Jet Boil isn't that easy to clean without a source of running water and while it's only coffee grinds, it best to not just dump them into a stream or on the ground. Looks like I am sticking with instant while backpacking, but I still use this whenever I am car camping or in a campground.
