+1 on Via. I have taken them with me on my business trips. Can't stand the coffee in hotel rooms! Well, the exception is when they have a K-cup machine.

My parents did not have a coffee maker and used those Folgers coffee bags for years. I hated those things. I think that they taste awful. I have been using the Tasters Choice Colombian Singles packets and I think that they taste much better. Starbucks Via are the best but they are $$$$ in comparison.

I thought the positioning of rear-bike-mount made a lot of sense. It's a great work height. Also, I wanted mine to be very small when folded, which it is.

Shown stowed on my top box, a Pelican 1550. Folded dimensions (appx) 12.5" x 10" x .75". Also shown is the ABS rear platform I made to create a bit bigger footprint for better stability:



Takes less than a minute to set up.



Other uses are on the tailgate of the Land Cruiser when 4 wheeling, and it's small and light enough to fit into a backpack for mountaineering.

Thanks ownst1100 for the inspiration!
OK, I am not too proud to ask. do you have a drawing for this? Functional and yet Uber small!

No drawings, but I started with a cardboard mock-up. Make it a size that will work for you, considering how you'll mount it. Put packing tape where the hinges will go. This way you can change the dimensions/design without wasting the expensive materials.

Mine is 6 panels of .063" thick aluminum with 5 hinges, all flush-riveted. The two panels that make up the bottom surface have a 90 degree bend along the leading edge for rigidity. I guess if you don't have the facilities to do the work you could take the mock-up to a sheet metal shop and have 'em cut and brake the pieces.

I originally planned to weld the hinges to the panels, but I'm a bit out of practice on TIG'n the thin aluminum, and the rivets are easy enough to do. Just make sure they're flush on both sides so you can fold it up flat! Another benefit to the rivets is I can drill them out and change a panel if I want to change the size, without having to re-fabricate the entire thing.

Happy to help, let me know if you have any other questions!

I have not tried the VIA packs...price is fine for me...My daughter is a Barista at Starbucks so I am sure I can get some samples. The company policy is that they get a 1lb bag of any grounds that they choose everyweek to take home for free.

I do not drink a pound a week so she passes them out to friends usually....all of our friends love her

Maybe next week she can trade her pound of coffee for a few Via packs.

Via and hotdogs cooked on a stick - leftovers in the morning
I lost 10lbs on my last trip :) I need to do more. It's amazing how not hungry a big guy can get on day 4 of "Saskatewan Wieners" cooked on a found stick over a fire or tablet stove.

If You Like REAL Coffee...

...then this is the answer. Turns your Jetboil into a french press.

Indispensable, in my book:

Wow brilliant thread. I have been accused of over loading my bike before but from now on I will blame owenst1100

Ok here is my setup

My BBQ attached to my panier



and in use (doubles up as a fire pit too)



Here is my cooking set up

My cook box. I only discovered them last year and they work fine.




Good wind protection and I get all my herbs and spices into it as well





Made a lamb curry. Bought the meat in the morning before the ride out. Cut it up and placed it into a zip lock bag with all the spices. Come back in the evening and got nicely marinated meat, cooked for a hour or so and ate it with rice and some naan bread

Hey owenst1100 I hope you dont mind but I downloaded some pics of your setup. Hoping that my mate will be able to do me something similar to your rig. Absolutely brilliant setup

Cheers Pete

the correct word to precede the phrase 'instant coffee' is 'revolting.'

Trying to devise so clamps to mount those Gear-Pods directly on the bike. Like those generic tool tubes. The Gear-Pods are waterproof and great for dry ingredients.





Yes, having a hack helps carrying more stuff!





Stay well. Ara and Spirit
