I’m the type of person who can’t begin the day without a coffee boost. When I’m not in my own bed, that dependence is amplified (be it a hotel or tent). Coffee on the road is frequently suspect (looking at you, gas station drip) or non-existent (in the backwoods or at the home of my non-coffee-drinking extended relatives). Starting my day with a cup of coffee gets me off to a good start. That sparked my quest for the greatest portable coffee maker I could take with me wherever I went.
If you have the right tools, you can make wonderful coffee anywhere on the planet.
Finding goods that allow me to make my own coffee anywhere—to my own rigors standards—has been a personal mission of mine. Here are some of the best things I’ve found for brewing coffee when away from home, whether you’re looking for a simple cup of joe or barista-quality brews.
