Joe on the Go
Bought this for backpacking but I've been using it at home the last few days to test it out and it's been great. Super light and seems pretty durable, this will be nice to have on my next journey.

Coffee anywhere fast
I got this for backpacking and have enjoyed it but didnât realize how good it was until a recent car camping trip with a group. And yes you may get some grounds but if itâs grounded course and pressed slow and firm ( like I do thereâs no real issues press it in a second yes you have grounds which eventually lead me to be the only doing it ). But as my girlfriend has to have her coffee brought her grill attachment coffee maker and hereâs the funny part. I had 10 pressed cups in everyoneâs hands before her maker had 1 cup ready. And yes her coffee was poured out as my coffee wasnât just faster it was better. My my now states she is dumping her coffee maker

Yes, it's stupidly expensive but hey, coffee is important. I love this press - it's light, will take a beating and is easy enough to clean. It works just as well as any other french press but the durability and weight savings stand out. Tips for using a french press - 1. Use course grinds to prevent grinds from getting through and to draw out the coffee's oils. You will get a little residue regardless, that's how it goes with a press. 2. Measure your coffee out at home for the proper coffee to water ratio. I keep it in separate mini containers for each day. 3. Wet the grounds and let stand for a half a minute before filling up with water. 4. Let it steep for 2-4 minutes before pressing. 5. let the coffee cool down a little before drinking and then enjoy!

Coffee For the Road
I've never owned a french press that didn't let a few coffee grounds through the filter, and this is no exception. To mitigate this I simply always grind my coffee coarsely and that seems to do the trick. One of my favorite things about this press is how lightweight and packable it is. Yes, it is expensive, but in my opinion if you're looking to save space and weight this is the perfect solution for campground or trail coffee. This comes with me on every trip, whether I'm car-camping or backpacking! If you have any further questions about this product I am happy to help! You can call me directly at 801-619-7488, or email me at email@example.com.

A few grounds here and there
It does an OK job, but you do have to use course grounds otherwise the coffee will be thick!

Decent press for the price
I purchased this for a gift for a friend who loves his coffee while camping. I was a bit hesitant after reading some of the problems with it, but didn't find anything else that was reasonably priced and problem free. Immediately, I could tell that the mesh lining was smaller than the titanium canister, so it wouldn't fully filter the grounds out. My friend tried it out with some course ground coffee and had a decent amount of grounds in his coffee, so he just avoided drinking the last bit of it. He likes how small and compact it is and that it is titanium and he doesn't have to worry about breaking any glass. Overall, it is a decent press for the price.

Unless you like grounds in your coffee, save the cash and hassle. Even course ground coffee doesn't do the trick...

Titanium French Press
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.

if you've got steady hands, you can even save the $6 and forego the lid. this will work not only with the SP 700 but with pretty much any mug or kettle that will nest with a nalgene bottle. i'm making a fresh cup with my gsi glacier mug right now :)

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!)

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?

thinking about switching from a percolator to this press. maby a dumb question. how exactly does work.
December 1, 2010
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.

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?"
February 13, 2011
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.
