Coffee options
If you hike in places where it's okay to build a small fire, you could do that. Starbucks Via is about as light as it gets and it tastes great. One of the best pieces of ultralight backpackin...

Toxic stuff
This is another reason behind my Backcountry Boiler purchase. I live in Western MA, and the nearest stop for Everclear is in Rhode Island. As a result, I've been making do with 97% isopropyl ...
