McDonalds is also good for free refills....and if you can't find a cup in the trash...it's usually only $1 anyway..and then you get free refills....some McD's limit you to one refill, but most don't give a fuck....

I like to carry the little instant packets too and I'll make cold coffee on the train, and I'll bring canned cold coffee for train coffee too..

I'm a horrible caffeine addict...ask anyone I've ever traveled or lived with.

20 bucks or less at walmart and worth it.

or just boil water with your grinds and pour in cup then top with a splash of cold water to make all the grinds settle at bottom of cup like the cowboys did it.

I need coffee. Like I need cigarettes. NEED. We're taking what we use at home as much as our drip coffee maker. A cuban coffee maker. For me, I'll take this over an extra pair of pants in my pack any day. It's about the same size as a rolled up pair of jeans.

No filters necessary. 1/2 lb. Fill up the bottom part with water, put the strainer in, fill it with coffee (don't even have to measure, just fill it), screw on the top half, put it on a flame until the water is all drawn through the coffee and is in the top part. Taa-daa! Strong-ass coffee that will get anybody going. I've replaced the handle on top with a metal cabinet pull. Side handle? Eh, we'll see.

Edit: Bought mine in a chain supermarket. Sure you could get one in an ethnic market. And amazon definitely carries them.

Choreador... it's like a thin-cotton-cloth 'sock'. You can put regular coffee grounds in there, and pour boiiling (or just-under-boiling temp) water through the grounds. This method is still common in latin america... 2 1/2 - 4 tspns of grounds works best... look to buy at hispanic food stores? Yea. You dont need the stand. Choreador sock is compact, works great for traveling light...

I'm gonna be using one of these. Yes it requires filters, but those are cheap, reusable, easy to steal if that's your thing, or can be substituted for paper towels anytime. Or hell, and cloth, really, you just need to filter this shit. It's lightweight too.

Update after 2 weeks. Cuban coffee maker I posted about is working well with a backpacking stove. Again, no filters necessary and is strong like, well, cuban coffee, lol.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
