Quick review of GSI Outdoors ultralight drip coffee maker

Well while at the rainbow gathering I got kicked an ultralight coffee maker for backpackers by a GSI representative that was out there giving out products.

This coffee maker is great for any backpacker that needs to stay as light as possible but also needs their morning java.

As you see it has a super simple design. All you have to do is clip it to the top of your cup, put your coffee in the cloth basket, pour hot water over the grounds, and viola nice hot cup of coffee to start your day. The grounds you can throw out as trash or compost then you just rinse the filter off and let it dry.

Let me tell you from experience this thing is very durable. Used it almost every day out on the road (thanks for the free hot water Starbucks) and was not careful at all in its packing, yet even now it still brews a great cup with no damage at all to it. Overall a very useful item. Oh almost forgot, you can also make tea with it though I don't drink tea often enough to have made any with this filter yet.

Grade rank (out of 10)
Quality of materials 10/10
Durability 10/10
Usefulness 10/10
Weight 10/10

Every coffee drinking backpacker should have one of these. Better even then a French Press type coffee cup.

So that's my review if interested in one you can check em out at
