    True but this is the NO style with Chicory. It is a nice occasional treat for me!

    Go to the Sweet Maria website. They have a gravity drip thing that sits on top of your cup seems pretty small. I have no patience, i need to be able to hurry the process! SMH!

    Aeropress (two pieces fit together), cup funnel, stir paddle, scoop spoon
    a baggie of filters
    a tea towel
    a bag of freshly ground coffee

    It unpacks like a breeze and packs in seconds. Fits in my Smart Alec, Brain Bag and Aeronaut. I can have great coffee anywhere I can get hot water!




    This is just too cool! How do you like the Aeropress?

    I'm a fan of the Barista :)

    I finally found a favorite coffee shop in Seattle. Java Bean

    But Seattle Coffee Works just opened up a location in Ballard, they have a slow bar that I'm pretty excited to try! Welcome to the world of coffee - Seattle Coffee Works

    You can also very easily cold brew some concentrate for yourself. This is what I do: Perfect Iced Coffee | The Pioneer Woman Cooks | Ree Drummond

    Do you like the Aeropress? I've had my eye on it for some time but have been reluctant to pull the trigger without someone's first hand experience. Do you use it to make a black cup of coffee or do you make lattes, etc with it? Do you use it daily or only when traveling?

    Thanks for any input!
    I love the Aeropress. It gives you in effect, a expresso cups worth of concentrated coffee. I then add hot water to taste and a bit of cream. But you could make lattes or flavored drinks. I use it daily some weeks and travel with it. Sometimes good coffee is hard to come by at work. Depend on who gets in first and starts it. This way, i can make a cup if the pot is too weak.

    joiedwards, for a true coffee nerd, above is a forum thread about coffee, you might find some interesting stuff there too.
    Matt's Wood Roasted Organic Coffee, organic coffee roaster in Maine - this is a link to my favorite coffee guy. Well worth giving it a try. Not affiliated, just love their coffee.

    Your pictures are great. I don't have a Knitting bag but I have an ultraviolet Travel Tray, I'll have to see if it works. If it doesn't guess I'll just have to order a Knitting bag. Oh dear.... :)

    Thanks again for the pictures,
    Moose
    I know Matt's! Great coffee!

    I also have a Mate tea kit, but it does not live in a Tom Bihn case. Mate is the Gaucho tea drunk from a gourd cup with a metal straw. Great caffeine rush but softer than coffee.
