      Have you found a travel kettle that you like? How do you get your hot water?

      As for the Aeropress, it's great. It makes a very smooth, subtly sweet cup of coffee. I own two of them, and have also given them as gifts to friends.

      Have you tried the Clever Coffee Dripper? It's a single brew method, and it's really good. It's amazing how different a cup of the same coffee can turn out using these two different methods.
      I use a small, 17 ounce Bodum kettle for travel. It is not as small as an immersion but it is a lot safer. I also travel with an aeropress but I use a travel scale and hand grinder as well.

        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!



        Do you think this would fit in a quarter packing cube?

          Yes, it probably would. I have since moved mine into a #2 travel bag, the oblong foot works better and it is flatter. A packing cube would be even flatter.

            jmcrist, I carry a small Thermos. Most hotels provide hot water for tea so I use that. Getting hot water from restaurants is usually possible.

              I may need to try this out. I also saw a collapsible cone dripper at Rei that packs down totally flat, I want to try it. Have you tried one of the able stainless filters for the aeropress? I really want to pick one up but have a ton of paper filters left.

                Saw the stainless. Still using paper.
