Best coffee I've ever had. Trail or no trail. It's worth buying a Jetboil just for the coffee!

I agree. The only negative is the clean up after. Messy

That, and Jetboil warranty service may be atrocious too.

I agree that it makes the best backcountry coffee ever, and its only downside is the mess that goes with every French press. I'm aware of the recent thread on Jetboil service, but that company has always been quick and responsive whenever I've contacted them.

The coffee is good with the press and it works well but the clean up is a disaster.

This might sound weird but for those of you that like cream and sugar in your coffee you MUST try vinacafe. To be honest it is the best cup of joe around. They come in nice packages and are amazing!

I think a 'bag' actually holds 20 sachets inside.
So that would be 100 cups for $36 (or less on eBay).

I have the accessory but have never used it. I guess I will have to give it a try if I ever put it in my pack again. I have been using a wood stove and the coffee you can buy at the grocery store that comes in tea bags lately, but it is no cup of coffee to write home about, that is for sure.

yes, they are pretty cheap. They are the size of a tea bag packet and already have the sugar and cream in it. It is instant coffee so no ground to deal with. If you are a cream and sugar person you will love them. If you like your coffee black, stay away.
