Cup of Joe to go
I always find myself in a state of debate when it comes to luxury items. I mean when am I crossing a line? If I'm in the middle of the woods and I pull out an Ipad, have I gone too far? I want to be comfortable when exploring.. Ok wait, maybe comfortable isn't the right word! I want to be able to afford myself a little luxury if its convenient enough for me to facilitate.
I love a good cup of coffee, its how I start everyday. Even more so I enjoy a nice cup of coffee. This is mind I often found myself feeling slightly disappointed waking up and sipping on a cup of instant all in one coffee mix. I wanted better, after a day of hiking and a night outside I think its OK to feel you deserve that.
I researched a few different coffee maker variations: The Esbit Coffee Maker was my initial go to, but I was put off by the exposed nozzle. I like my gear to be safely stored, I want things to pack away nicely in their own space, not catch.
I found my my way eventually to the Wacaco Minipresso and this thing was an amazing find! The design is sleek, its got a sense of coolness about it. I mean look at it, it looks like a time capsule from the future, its just a thing of beauty.
I did have to purchase the Carry Case separately which was disappointing but I suppose both together would stack on the price and could possibly scare off customers.

Its build is seamless, each part disengages with perfection and cleverly plays a part in the brewing process, even the scoop which is stored inside. Its easy to clean, a simple rinse and its good to pack away again (The case was worth the buy, it does protect it and again the finish is just perfect)
So initially I would take out container from my Nalgene Travel Kit with some coffee grounds in it, rotating from a Costa blend, Starbucks and sometimes just something as a treat. It was a bit of a pain having to mess around with measurements etc in poor weather but the end product made it worth it.
Now Wacaco have changed the game again, introducing a model that actually takes Nespresso capsules called Minipresso NS. This upgrade will allow for less mess, easier carrying of the coffee ingredient itself. It literally solved the only issue I have with my current model. Perfect!
I picked up my duo from Heinnie Haynes
Keep your eyes peeled, as I will look to do a review on the new model ASAP.
