I've done FP & Zass, hotel coffee pots and whirly grinders, prepackaged 
(portioned) pre-ground (vac sealed) homeroast and FP and it is all 
better than anything you get in a hotel on the road.  But the best 
travel coffee I had was last year on a 33 day cruise when I vac sealed 
enough packages (each about a 5 day supply) of hpmeroast, ground with a 
vintage Zass, and pressed with an Aeropress.  I heated water with one of 
those little plug in coils that you stick in your cup.  Yes, towards the 
end of the cruise the coffee wasn't as good as the fresh stuff at the 
beginning of the cruise, but my stale homeroast is still better than 
Holland America's stale coffee that they have allowed to "age" in a 
storeroom down in the bowels of the ship since Christ was a Midshipman.  
Find room in your luggage for a Zass and Aeropress - you won't be sorry.

Mini fridge?  Alas, there wasn't one - but you have a good point.

The last time I tried paper filters, I swore I'd never use them again. 
The coffee was thin, weak, and it tasted like paper. They were the 
grocery store Melitta type, so maybe that's the problem. Is this an 
issue with the Aeropress? Apparently it's not, but I wanted to hear some 
feedback about it anyway.
