A riding bud and I met at a campground this morning to review one another's camp coffee rig. Mine is a Jetboil Java. I paid $100 Simolians plus the fuel canister. While the "press" sells separately for $15.00 If you buy the "Java" version they'll throw it in for free. My set up can have 2 cups of coffee ready for consumption in about 3 minutes start to finish. It is good coffee. My cohort Has a potted meat tin with holes drilled near the top rim. It stands about an inch and a half tall. Fuel is Heet ( a gas line anti freeze). He uses a small paint can lid for a cooking surface insulator/primer. Accessories include a home made wind screen to prevent the flame being extinguished by the wind. He also purchased a Stanley stainless steel kettle to boil the water in. For making coffee with the just boil water he uses an Aero Press. the Aero Press is two tubes that fit one inside the other with a rubber gasket to seal the water in. It uses paper filters and makes an excellent cup of java. Summary and results. Boiling water is boiling water regardless of how much it costs to get the task completed. Both methods got the job done in a reasonable amount of time although the Jet boil gets it done in record time. It will boil water for a Mountain House Breakfast Skillet Pro Pack, start anew with water for 2 cups of coffee and be done before the home made alcohol stove has the coffee water ready. BUT: How big a hurry are you in? The packed size is similar although utilizing a Maxpedition 5X12 water bottle holder I have enough room for the complete Jetboil Java, my camp cup, ground coffee, cooking/food prep/eating utensils, and condiments in slightly less room than the McGyver cooking system. Personally I like my system better because it's self contained, quick and slick. For cost, ease of operation, maintenace and most importantly quality of thee coffee I'll have to go with Jeff's McGyver set up. Bottom line with all things considered I'll have to call it a draw.
