You know, this looks pretty neat.
I'm not one to be quickly sold on a product, but as someone who is moderately lazy when backpacking, and does enjoy a good cup of pour over, this looks great.
I'll have to try some out.Jul 22, 2015 at 12:41 pm #2216363Michael SirofchuckBPL Member

Is the filter material biodegradeable? Or would you have to pack it out even if you dried out the grounds and scattered/cat holed them?Jul 22, 2015 at 6:50 pm #2216423Ken (summmitboy)BPL Member

Nice try, but I'm sure theses are pricey and I have yet to taste any coffee bag that tastes as good as coffee made with ground coffee in an MSR Mugmate. Same idea but REUSABLE and you can also brew a pot full for a group and pour it through the coffee into each persons mug. I just don't get why people need to reinvent the wheel…Jul 29, 2015 at 3:00 am #2217757K. Urs Grütter, LL.M.BPL Member
Sounds nice, sure will taste good, but: This is definitely for car camping and not for ultralight hiking, where you will have to carry in AND carry OUT everything! I prefer an instant coffee – the airtight baggies serve as a (coarse) altimeter, too :-)
This was a coffe-break at Lake 12149 some 3mi south of Mt. Whitney. Sorry about my dirty hands, it was our 3rd day out…Jul 29, 2015 at 7:04 am #2217775Ken ThompsonBPL Member
@hereLocale: Right there
Too much packaging for 8oz of coffee. This is just like an extremely similar product from the late 90's, early 2k. It failed after a short while on the marketplace. The mesh screen would blow out and dump grounds in your cup. Had to use multiples like this product to make a generous cup of coffee. I like 14-16 oz at a time. If you're gonna brew some, might as well brew a bit more. Mugmate and real grounds for me as well.
