Topic: [OT] Coffee on airplanes? (6 msgs / 162 lines)
1) From: Derek Bradford
Hi All,
I'm headed across the big Pacific in a few weeks, and was wondering what
those of you who've made coffee during your flights have done.  What are yo=
u
doing for water?  Do you ask to have it heated up, or will they let you hea=
t
up water, or is it already hot enough?  A bodum is in order, and likely jus=
t
preground, though to be honest I've not completely decided against a Zass.
I just don't really want to lug it around with me.
Feel free to take this offlist and email me instead.
Thanks!

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
I have taken preground (Zassed at home before going to the airport..The zass being packed in a suitcase for fresh grinding at destination.) I keep my preground in an AVENT powdered milk dispenser which is pretty air tight and I measure out my qtys using using the AVENT cap as a dispenser..
Ask for hot water..that's what airflight crews are there for. Besides, they'll get a kick out of your geekiness..as long as you smile, say thank you and offer them a whiff of your fresh coffee.

Never made coffee on a plane--I don't trust there not to be sudden  
turbulence that could cause splashes and nasty burns, either with a  
press pot or pourover. Ever notice the auto-drip setups they have in  
the galley? They use not only filter packs for convenience, but also  
special locking shields for safety (which have to be locked down  
during ascent, descent and turbulence).

Yikes.  Never brewed on a plane before.  For me it's purely that I want to
sleep on the plane as much as possible (no matter how much my body doesn't
want to) to kill any lag when I get to my destination.  Might be helpful in
the last hour or two of the flight though!  I've always just resorted to th=
e
crap they have on board, the "robusta buzz" (as I like to call it) that I
get right before landing.  Good luck on the long flight.

Thanks all for the replies...sorry for taking so long to respond to my own
thread; been busy.   I think I'll bring preground and brew on the plane, an=
d
in the airport, and...  It's Air Canada, and they're usually pretty
reasonable about strange requests.
Cheers,
