    Aeropress and Porlex. Porlex fits in barrel and makes a compact package. Aeropress is simple to clean, and can be used with minimal water when doing remote travel and water can be a scarce resource.

    Looking at upgrading lido 2 to Lido 3 and an Espresso Forge for an upgraded travel package.

    We use an "Atomic" cappuccino maker, heat it up on a gas flame or electric cooktop or even in the coals of a campfire if you need to.

    I've always been intrigued by the Atomic. How do they compare to a relatively decent traditional espresso machine (such as the Silvia).

    I can't vouch for the Atomic, having never owned one, however I can provide some insight into the Bacchi. I took it last week on holiday and it was making better coffee than any cafe in the town. I had with me of course some freshly roasted beans and my trusty Lido for grinding on demand. I would say that if the Giotto makes a 9 out of 10 coffee (assuming GS 3 or similar produces a 10 out of 10 coffee, then the Bacchi produces a 7 out of 10 coffee. Plenty of crema and a great taste.

    Man, I love my MSR stove. I should get a Hario copper kettle and do pour over at the beach.

    I just had a look at it on doobtube. I was especially impressed by the pourer's speed and quantity of water released, it looks slow and controlled. Whats the coffee like from it? Is the grind consistent?

    Cheers Yabba

    Hi. It's easy to use and compact. Very solid. A grade quality. Grind consistency is good.
    The only downside it that grinding is hard work. A slightly longer handle would help but they can't fit that in. I guess that's the compromise they had to make.

    That's a great spot to enjoy a brew and the view. Think I've turned a shade green!

    I do a fair bit of staying in hotels for work, so I've been carrying a grindripper for about 5 years now.
    The other essential though, unless you're traveling to places like Melbourne or Auckland with a great local supply, is a good water filter. Nothing ruins your morning brew faster than hard, over-treated water. (Sydney, QLD, NYC & London, I'm looking at you) Stick to shop bought water otherwise.

    Honestly for portability and packing size, I would vote Aeropress!

    Aeropress and a shitty Rhinowares grinder. I’ve brewed at 40,000 ft many times, it feels weird asking the flight attendant for a cup of plain hot water but it’s worth it.

    In addition to my travel kit (usually aeropress plus lido) I also have a great zojirushi thermos bottle. Making an extra cup in my hotel room in the morning and bringing it with me has been a life saver, especially if travelling in countries that offer tea at every opportunity but never coffee (I still drink the tea offered to me, but have a sneaky sip from the thermos between meetings).
