    Coffee while backpacking

    Smart piece of gear here. Iíve used a small glass French press before. But in getting ultralight , out that went , for instant coffee. Now there may be a way to do both.


    WoodKnot Gear 750ml Titanium Cup with Press

    by Matt on March 19, 2019

    Even if you arenít a coffee snob, youíll probably appreciate the WoodKnot Gear 750ml Titanium Cup with Press. A lot of people carry a lightweight cup to serve as their cook pot and cup when they are in the back country. A lot of those same people also carry some method of preparing coffee. The WoodKnot Gear Cup with Press can fill both of those roles!



    The kit consists of 4 parts that can be mixed and matched to suit your needs: Titanium Cup, Titanium Lid with Press (the lid and press can be separated), Plastic Drinking Lid, and Mesh Stuff Sack. The total weight for everything is 10.1 ounces.

    The titanium cup looks very well designed on its own. It has the three features that I consider necessary for a cup like this: graduated volume markings, ability to nest on a water bottle, and folding handles. It also has two features that are just really nice to have and harder to find on cups like this: a bail and a pour spout.

    If all that isnít interesting enough, you have the built in (removeable) French Press. Having this built in saves weight and pack space over many other ways of making coffee on the trail.

    Cool piece of kit, but when I’m rucking or camping I’m fine with instant coffee. Just need water, heat and a cup, I buy the small one cup packs whenever I see them on sale. Usually find them at the dollar store, they last forever. I’m not real picky with my coffee, but I gotta have it.

    50 tea bags are light and require little room.

    That is a nice press, though.

    I have a Cobb BBQ which can do a Sunday roast, with spuds, veg, etc. whilst you're at the beach with 12 pieces of charcoal it's great!

    I highly recommend.


    It's not really a BBQ (Although they do a plate to turn it into one)

    A decent bag of charcoal lasts about 40 roasts good for a possible apocalypse scenario where Cortez becomes president in 2032

    Also works in snow conditions which means nothing to you lol.

    Do instant beer packages exist? If not, whoever invents them will be a genius.
