- Q & A
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.
To press or not to press..
The Reactor is such a great set up to melt snow and boil water. Having a coffee press that integrates into the pot is really cool. The rubber gasket can be a little tricky if you put it through the lid. I don't put it through the lid. Take the lid off once you are done boiling, add your coffee grounds or tea, seep, then plunge the press down and pour your coffee or tea into your mug. No issues whatsoever.. I don't really understand the need of putting it through the lid.
I am more of a tea drinker than a coffee guy and it works great with loose tea as well.
I have two Reactors in the 1.7 liter size and I just keep it in one and grab that one when I think I might want coffee or tea in the morning.
Nothing is better than watching the sunrise on Mount Rainier with a hot cup of tea or coffee first thing in the morning.
I would recommend it to anyone who has a Reactor stove and pot.
Seems great but can't use
I made the mistake of buying this without realizing that you need the whole kit. It only comes with the top, which makes it pretty useless until you have the right pot to put the coffee in. It seems well made with the rubber to keep the grounds out though. If you have the right setup I am sure this is a bomber coffee press.
Perfect if you like french press coffee
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is exactly what it is supposed to be, a french press add in for the MSR reactor stove. It's a tight fit, which ensures that you get as few coffee grounds as possible in your coffee.
Good product good price, and it saves you from having to carry an extra coffee maker.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have the older pot (without spout) so after drilling a few holes in the lid to poor through, it works very well. In fact I like the press filter better than my home Bowdum. I really like this set-up. This is our hike, float, travel coffee!
Not a solid build...
I tried the 1.7L version in the kitchen and I don't like the construction at all. Its hard to operate due to the tight fit, and the shaft doesn't have a solid raceway to run in. This causes the whole mess to torque to the side. I think some day I'll get a 1.0L pot and try the french press with that setup.
Does anyone know the weight of this?...
Does anyone know the weight of this? Thanks
The press for the 1.0L pot is 1.9oz (53g) and the 1.7L is 2.3oz (64g)
