Topic: Travelling Coffee Kit (3 msgs / 49 lines)
1) From: McConnel
A while back Gin mentioned coffee pods in a post about the hazards of 
on-the-road coffee.
If I truly have no choice I just "let go" and drink whatever dark drink 
w/enough caffeine to keep me going. No sense railing at the gods about 
things I really can't change. But I do travel a lot so I maintain a coffee 
kit.
Sears has a really nice gladstone style, cordura tool bag--Bucket Boss it's 
called. In it I keep one electric kettle, one stainless steel, Frieling 
Press Pot, one 25 year old Zassenhaus, a wooden spoon, some Cafiza cleaner 
w/brush, a stainless steel insulated coffee cup and of course a selection of 
press post appropriate roasts.
Sometimes extended trips give me the opportunity to test out prolonged 
rests.
Most coffees fade after a week but even 21 days old is better than motel 
coffee pods.
Always great to get back to my significant others, Rocky and Miss Silvia.

Which BucketBoss are you using?  I have a big BB Gatemouth, but I've only
used it for tools, rope, etc.  Mine is a little bigger than I'd want to
add to the family luggage.  Packing for 5 takes a lot of room by itself.

I'm using a Gatemouth as well. Funny thing is, just yesterday we were at a 
pruning workshop and stayed in a riverside cabin where the water was 
excellent for coffee and I commented on how bad quality water undid some of 
my best coffee efforts when traveling, Diana suggested I carry my PUR 
backpacking water filter. That's going to stretch my BB's capacity, but I 
think I'm going to do it.
