    I got a French press thingy from REI that works in my Nalgene bottle. After I make my coffee I just rinse it out and it's gtg as a water bottle for the day.

    simple and efficient. For $5 you get a new mug too (in any color you want - so long as it's black).

    I use an antique kerosene Optimus 00 stove and a Bodum Travel Press. The Travel Press is without a doubt the best coffee making device I've ever used. Put the coffee in, pour in boiling water, screw on top. After a few minutes push down the screen, pop open the plug, and drink. It's rugged, insulated, compact, and cheap $10 at Target.

    After straining through your girlfriends thong, does your coffee taste like chicken?

    Found out about the Areopress here and had to have one. Have used it a LOT, love it. Use it at home, at work and on the road. Best cup of coffee I have ever had and clean up could not be easier. It is fast too. I can have a cup brewed, everthing cleaned up and put away and be enjoying my cup of coffee while friends with other systems are still brewing. I am more than sold and have been responsible for several others at work or on the trail becoming coffee snobs.

    It is cheap and it works.

    French Presses are really good and I use them for my daily coffees as well as on the road.

    I also like making a cold-brewed extract at home that's really strong, then on the trail I just use a bit of extract and some hot water....strong as I want it to be, great tasting and easy peasy.

    +1 cheap and simple. From all the rave reviews I also bought the Aeropress and it makes great coffee but, for motorcycle camping I'll continue to use the above set up.

    I got mine in the coffee section of a local supermarket. I'm sure places like walmart or target would have them too.
