    the smallest you're going to get is an alcohol stove I'll take pictures of my setup this weekend packs down to just a little bit more than the size of the flask you store fuel in

    NOPE. After reading the description that's a fail... 15 min to make that little itty bitty pot of coffee? I bought an 1800's style aluminum coffee percolator for a couple bucks and it SUCKS, but it makes coffee as fast as that thing and cost a hell of a lot less.
    FYI....It's a 10 cup pot, not a single serving.

    David if you don't already have some camp cookware, I have to second Ken on this one, it's a pretty good deal and the stove is highly rated by users on there.

    I've had excellent luck out of my Primus stoves. I bought the Techno Trail on sale at Sierra Trading Post online years ago and it's never failed me yet.

    I found an older version of this stove at a flea market that I've been wanting someone who knows more about stoves than I do to take a look at to see what it would take to convert it. It works great right now as a butane only and is very stable. I haven't used it much as it doesn't pack quite as small as the other two stoves I carry, they will both fit nested inside the smallest pot of my cookware.

    I picked up this Coleman when I found it on sale at Wally World to use as a back up when I cook larger meals and for boiling water. It's a good little stove, and even simmers almost as well as my Primus. You really can't beat it for just a tad over $20.00!

    I use an MSR Mug Mate for coffee, it works well enough once you figure out your coffee to water ratio. You will need to grind your coffee as coarse as you can get it to avoid fines in your cup. I just buy whole bean coffee and grind it with a grinder the wife found at a yard sale. I would really like to someday get a decent coffee press for times when I will be camped somewhere for a few days at a time.

    All that being said, cuz has a Jetboil with the coffee press attachment and he loves it! The Jetboil system really is a nice setup, cuz has the larger pot to go with the normal cup and it works great, just a little out of my budget for the whole setup and a tad bulky. You will always hear of people complaining about these stoves not being stable and you can get the legs that snap on to the bottom of the butane can, but I've never had a problem so far. On the other hand I'm not a backpacker that is cooking dinner setting on a rock outcrop somewhere up on a mountain!

    Re: Coffee, gotta have it!!

    There have been numerous threads on this topic before, but there are a few of us here who use the Aeropress. I rank this one on the top of my list.

    It really makes a great cup of coffee.
    I recently bought a french press travel mug from Starbucks because they were on sale. Nice and portable.
    I also carry a few Via packets for emergencies.
    In all three cases, you still need hot water. IMHO, and although I don't carry one, that's one of the great things about the Jetboil. One of these days...

    I like this idea!! How long does it take to make the coffee? I know you have to let the coffee steep for awhile.


    What about the clean up??

    Typically, french press is about a 4 minute steep. Well worth it too.

    I use the jet boil and the aeropress. Idont like the mess of the grounds in the french press. The aeropress uses very fine grind coffee so it brews very fast, 30 seconds or so. There is also no grit in the coffee and the used grounds are ejected in a puck. The aeropress can just be wiped off or lightly rinsed to be ready to go next time. I used to use the french press and liked the coffee but I think the aeropress makes the superior brew.
