While there are plenty of ways to make coffee outdoors (see some of our favorites), sometimes you just want a quick, easy, and lightweight option.

While Japanese company Porlexcurrently wears the crown on portable coffee grinders, many companies such as GSI have tried to follow suit–all with their own limitations. We all know that freshly ground beans are the holy grail of backcountry coffee, and a consistent grind is key, something you don’t normally associate with portability. Newcomer Handground hopes to be the answer to consistently good tasting coffee whether traveling, camping, or even backpacking.

We all love our Jetboil personal cooking systems but it’s not exactly feasible to make your coffee and a hot meal at the same time. Either you have to brew your coffee first and clean out the pot before making breakfast, or simply resign yourself to using your Jetboil for boiling water only. Now, Jetboil offers up a lightweight answer to all your morning coffee conundrums with the limited edition Javastein.

A good cup of coffee can make all the difference to your enjoyment of a backpacking trip.
