As some of you know, I'm a coffee fanatic. So much so, that I would lug my near 1lb bodum travel press with me, if I didn't have a better choice.
Cowboy coffee is better than nothing, but not by much. Since the SP 700 is what I take with me for solo hikes, and the size is about right, I thought it would make a perfect dual-use cook-pot/french press.
This adds 23g's in it's current iteration, although the carbon fiber press-rod is decidedly *NOT* food safe.
Mark 2 will be ready in a few days, using a better press plate over the screen, and a food grade Aluminum rod. I think I can get the weight to under 20g's and still use a high quality stainless steel screen.
Here's the assembly outside the pot, it's just the press rod, plate and filter, I tested this the other day with a fine drip grind coffee, to make sure the seal was good, and even with the tiny grind, I got perfect coffee without any sediment.
Will post the new version soon, if anybody is interested.
