REI also carries a couple of manual travel grinders,  I think Sandy Andina
mentioned that she has one of them, I had been meaning to go by the REI in
Houston (now, "when we get back"...), but have not gone there yet - it's
mostly across town from my normal stompin' grounds.

FYI, 
I was in need of a quick manual grinder this summer when I was headed to
Mexico on a missions trip.  The REI in Houston on Westheimer told me they
never have carried it, but the REI on 249 does.  The grinder is pretty lousy
though.  Verrrrrry slow.

travel mugs and coffee brewers.  i have found some nice ones at outdoor
and camping supply stores. Such as REI, and a new one to me Planetary

the public.
either Lucite or stainless steel.  Tom might think about carrying some
of them.

The "Traveller II" from REI works pretty well.  It is NOT slower than the
Zass Turkish, however (I own both, just got the Zass and used in this week
on a trip).  Its main problem is that it is plastic and so creates a static
cling problem.  It probably won't last as long as the Zass but that's not a
biggy if you use it only on trips.  It does not grind as evenly as the Zass;
if you brew with a filter (e.g., SwissGold 1-cup) that can be a problem, but
with the AeroPress it isn't much of a factor.  If you don't want to spend
$80 or so on the Zass, the Traveller II at around $25 is a pretty good deal,
IMHO, especially in combo with the AP.

What I had in mind for it is to leave in our RV for use with the Aeropress.
It would be real handy to be able to stop en route for a coffee break and to
be able to fresh-grind the beans. The RV has the usual propane stove, so
heating the water is no issue.
