Cuppa pics and also camelids

As a committed and somewhat picky coffee drinker, I much prefer the taste and texture of paper/cloth filtered coffee these days, at home and out. It's less oily and bitter, and leaves no oily residue on my cups and pot.
I find the paper cone holders a bit faffy and slow for more than a days use, and the coffee is often a bit too cool when you brew on a windy hill.

The Aeropress is my favourite. It's unbeatable for ease of cleaning, quality of brew and gives a reliable great coffee in any temp. I use it all the time at home and also out.
It's basically a tough polycarbonate syringe that you fill with coffee and water, and then push the lot through a 50mm paper filter disc by pushing down after 2-5 mins.
Yeah, it's a bit heavy compared to others but nothing gets close for ease of use and consistency of a decent coffee out in the hills.

The shorter travel version fits in my 900ml pots and I cut a hole in a spare mug lid to take the base.

I've been using this for the last year and a bit.20210707_095551.jpg
It came with a bar of lavender soap & soap dish. Boiled it a bit to see what colour would bleed. Seems fine to use, it does let some of the finner grounds through, but no more really than other filters. I tend to boil a little extra water and leave the cup sitting in that water in the pot while the coffee is steeping, like a bain marie. Works for me and is easy to clean. :)

Nice one thanks for the replies.

I use the GSI Java Drip...It folds flat, it's easy to clean, it dries quick, and it does not require filter papers, plus it only weighs 10g.
It makes great tasting coffee anywhere, and you don't have to wait a minimum of 3-4 minutes for your coffee like you do with other coffee makers...Just mount it to the rim of your cup/mug, fill it at least a couple of teaspoons of your favourite ground coffee, pour your water over the grounds in the filter, and it only takes about a minute or so and your coffee is ready. They even do a replacement filter for it if you somehow manage to rip the one that comes with it, and that only weighs 1g, so the majority of it's weight is in the three folding plastic support legs.

Looks very sophisticated I must say 😁
If you mean my raingear it's a very simple SilPoly Light Heart gear rain jacket, it does have pit zips though.:);)
If you mean my cake it's very simple as well-just some raw mixed up ingredients and set in the fridge. Delicious.
Even this little number below that I'm about to inhale, is very simple, but for the inner sponge.
Bathed in raw choccy and rolled in lots of desiccated coconut🤙- 500 kilojoules of light and fluffy Lamington .:whistling:
