    I was very much looking at this one - but then a LOT of reviews that says some units have a chemical taste - no matter what you do - even months after purchasing it. This was the only thing putting me off buying this unit - as I think otherwise it is a very nice product.

    How is that grinder working? I did not hear so many good reviews, went with a Hario Mini Slim grinder.

    It works ok, its a little slow but ultimately its still a hand grinder with a DC motor on it...

    What is nice for when camping or away is if you making multiple aeropress shots etc you can leave it grinding on the table or wherever while you do other stuff!

    I think its a cool thing, it works as designed!

    I have a couple of hand grinders which I still use!

    By no means a purist, but don't like instant.
    This works for me: windburner with press. Hot water very very quickly, and fresh coffee, even if just at a roadside stop.

    I have a manual grinder with a ceramic grinding mechanism, a Moka pot and battery operated milk frother. I made a small mod to the grinder that allows me to use my cordless drill to grind the coffee beans at a nice slow speed. The electric grinder is used on the odd occasion when we have 220v available. The Moka pot is a nice size and can easily make 6 cups of nice strong coffee.

    I battled to find a picture of the Moka pot and the pic of the grinder I have comes off the Takealot site...and then a picture om me enjoying a nice morning cup of decent coffee. Nothing beats a good cup of coffee to start the day... Ok, 'n ys koue bier in die middag hap, hap aan sy gat...

    Very important topic this

    Moka pot on a gas stove or straight on the fire with freshly grounded beans. I normally grind enough for the trip, I don't think you will loose that much aroma in a few days, just keep the container sealed tightly. I also use a handheld milk frother. It uses 2xAA batteries and works like a charm.

    If you like coffee you need to get something that works for you otherwise you day just starts off crap.

    Default Camping coffee: share your preferred way

    If we are car camping then I use a mokka pot with a stove top milk frother and a Krups grinder.

    If it's a minimalist trip or if I travel light then I take my aeropress with Porlex mini hand grinder. The Porlex nests inside the aeropress, with the handle under a rubber strap. I use an Able steel filter with the aeropress.

    I really like the aeropress, I use it a lot at home.
    If I need to buy now I'll get the Aeropress Go.

    It appeals to my minimalist love, couple it with a cup/mug that will serve as a kettle and it rings all my gadget bells.

    Totally agree. Been using a hand grinder with a Nanopresso for years. When Iím lazy, I use capsules.

    I use a bialetti copy I bought at checkers. It makes great coffee, use one at home and for camping.
    I know it's like comparing a Toyota and gwm, has anyone compared the coffee quality comparing the genuine vs. Copy?

    I really want to get a Bialetti as soon as budget allows - definitely on the wish list - but for now I'm using a Woolies Fialetti Moka Pot. It works...but it leaks at the joint between the top and bottom pieces (at the filter I suspect), which irritates me endlessly.

    And then I also use a French Press, a normal home type one. What I would really like to get is one of those full stainless steel Stanley units.

    I try and avoid instant when camping, but when in transit on long road sections I sometimes reach for the Jacobs and hot water from the Stanley flask.

    Jeez, it seems like I'm way below all of your camping standards.

    I simply use a kettle and the same Nescafe Gold/Jacobs or a little cappuccino sachet like at home...
