I love my coffee. Actually, let me correct that- I love good coffee. Call me a coffee snob but, for me, instant coffee just doesn’t cut it. Wherever possible, I want my proper cup of Joe and, thanks to the GSI Outdoors Java Press, this is possible just about anywhere. Yes, the unit is essentially a traditional French Press, just far more durable. This durability, however, is incredibly important in the backcountry. Unlike traditional French Presses, the Java Press is made out of durable, BPA-free plastic, rather than glass. The 30oz carafe comes with an insulating sleeve for added temperature retention and easy handling. The sleeve is easily removed for cleaning out in the field or throwing it in the dishwasher when you get home. I usually just trow the grounds directly in the press before I head out, and I’ve never had problems with dry grounds spilling out. So, as long as you have a heat source you never have to be without coffee on an alpine start ever again.
