Topic: making coffee on a holiday... (9 msgs / 210 lines)
1) From: Ries van Twisk
Hey All,
I am in holland right now on holiday, but missing my home coffee!!
I am not that picky, but the senseo machine at the homestay is just  
cr*p.
I am used to not so really coffee based on my gaggia machine and  
steamed milk.
Now I can steam milk easy here, but what would you suggest to
buy for holidays to make coffee much like I can do on my gaggia.?
A hand grinder may be, but what to use to make the coffee itself??
thanks for any hints/tips

2) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
I take an Aeropress on some trips, and that works well if making 
coffee just for myself, or one other person. I think a plastic drip 
cone works better if you need to make coffee for 3-4 people... but 
Aeropress is my #1 choice for travel coffee.
In Holland, look for Bocca coffee. A friends roastery...

When I go on a trip my 'coffee world' suitcase goes with me.
It's a small rolling suitcase that I've modified just a bit.  I took 
one of those 1" green foam camping pads and some duct tape.
First I cut a piece to fit the bottom of the suitcase, then a chunk 
to go around the inside.  Used the tape to hold it together and 
fasten it to the base plate.
Next I laid out my coffee gear and then made dividers that I taped 
into place.  I've been using it for a few years now and it's still 
holding up well - probably in part because when it's loaded  there's 
no room for the partitions to  even  try to move.
In it I have my small IBIS pot for hot water, a pair of stainless 
steel travel mugs, my Zass Turkish grinder (originally a cheap 
plastic one), my AeroPress (also something else originally), and my 
coffee.  The coffee, coffee maker, and grinder 'compartments' are 
basically the spaces left over around  the other items so they have 
room for accessories like some baggies with sweetener packets for me 
and creamer packets for the ever-indulgent wife, stirrers, a dish rag 
& sponge for cleaning if needed, those new little rolls of paper 
towels (it's one half-sheet wide - they're joined along the narrow 
edge and the whole role is about 1.5" thick), and  other 'stuff'.  In 
a baggie kept in  the outer pocket of the case I keep those little 
flavor packets you put in a bottle of water - those make the hotel 
water taste OK anywhere.
If you don't want to dedicate a whole suitcase you could get by with 
something like a FrenchPress, an immersion coil, and pre-ground, 
vacuum packed home roast.
Enjoy!

Steven,
I love your dedication. Camping..yes. A trip across the world?  And
not explore bad coffee on other continents?  Seriously though, my wife
would kill me if I brought my gear!

Lois too. As a matter of fact she has taken stuff out of her luggage to make
room for our coffee gear. She does complain about all the counter space and
cabinet space it takes up in the kitchen. Then she always relents when she
tastes the improvements in the coffee.

I travel lightly with thoughts of coffee forays in unfamiliar terrain.
Returning home is one the joys of traveling.
