    Default GIS ultralight drip coffee maker

    This is the only way to go if you really need good coffee. 0.4 oz.
    http://www.rei.com/product/784659/gs...p-coffee-maker

    16oz of boiled water in the morning gets you a cup of coffee and a bowl of oatmeal, with enough left over for the clean up.

    And here's a tip -- if you like cream, you don't have to put up with that nasty powdered stuff. Just pick up a handful of creamers at McD's when you're in town and carry them in your coffee mug.

    Thanks - I am actually considering that one, but 16oz wouldn't be enough. I could just keep keep reheating the water in the pot and making more single cups. And I like mine Black.

    I've been testing a new setup, If you've seen folks in coffee shops using the pour over method for coffee, that's the direction I'm going. I didn't want to do anything overly complicated, so this is what I came up with.

    Using #2 coffee filters and a piece of aluminum foil I created a simple pour over system. Just fold up the aluminum and put two small holes in the bottom about the size of a thumbtack. Now you're ready to go. Put the filter inside the aluminum pour over shape. Add some coffee and hot water and let it slowly seep through.

    It makes a surprisingly good cup of coffee and adds very little weight. Simple and effective. The only drawback is that the aluminum isn't strong enough to support the weight of the water when you pour it in so you have to hold it until some of the water has seeped through.

    Update: I've made a new one of these out of thicker aluminum from a baking sheet. Works great.

    cool idea. I use a melita cone filter same idea just doesn't pack flat. That said they do make packable versions of this idea. Still one of the best brews out there

    Trader Joe's instant 100% Colombian is much better than Starbucks Via. I also like Trader Joe's instant coffee "all dressed up" with creamer and sugar in little packets.

    What I need is a good hiking insulated cup that won't spill so I can have hot coffee all day long.

    A muslin coffee "sock," sold in stores like Bed, Bath & Beyond might do the trick. Carry pre-ground coffee in a Ziplock.

    Amen to Cafe Bustello. Tried them all but Bustello rocks!

    Nature's Coffee Kettle makes some great coffee while on trail. It's light weight, folds nicely, but more importantly brews coffee naturally. The coffee/filter it comes with can be reused up to 4 times. Columbia 100% Coffee style is their best, next to Hazelnut.

    Folgers has coffee in tea bags style with string
    fill cup/pot with water
    drop coffee Bag in water
    bring water to boil
    raise and dip coffee bag with string up and down a to taste
    enjoy !
    the downside is carrying around used coffee bags till next trash stop...but its sooo worth it !!! IMO
    leave no trace... haul your trash out !

    Lots of great suggestions to try out - I tried the Starbucks Via and do not care for it. Next on my list is Trader Joe's instant, but knowing me and my taste buds I'm guessing I will end up with a press or cowboy coffee.

    The quest continues....

    For short hikes when not camping I have RX pill bottles, one coffee, one creamer, and one sugar.

    Starbucks has some good instant coffee, but as others have mentioned, its a little pricey, but so what on the trail. Also, I just boil the water, but some in a small cup and bang-bang-instant starbucks. its a good way to get going in the morning or at night.

    After the starbucks taste test, I'm either going to pack my aluminum percolator (I have a Burr grinder to make it course) or do cowboy coffee.

    I just can't deal with instant -

    Zojirushi 16 ounce travel mug. Totally leakproof locking lid. I fill it about 6 am and take it to work. Still hot at noon. If it lasts that long.
