If youíre happy with the coffee you make with your Bialetti then itís as good as anything so Iíd stick with it. There are of course many, many other options for making different styles of coffee while traveling, but the Bialetti Moka pot is fine for that style of drink. Using a good technique makes a difference as well and Iíd recommend you check out the Chef Steps YouTube video on how to make good quality stovetop espresso. As far as the grinder goes I highly recommend the Gefu Lorenzo. It can be picked up from places like Peters Of Kensington for as little as $70 and itís the best grinder Iíve used in this price range for this style of coffee.
