For a simple cup of joe on the go, the Sea to Summit X-Brew Coffee Dripper does the trick. It collapses down, which makes it easy to toss in a backpack or camp cooking kit.
Brewing coffee is pretty simple: Just add the grounds on top of the included mesh filter, then add water. Not measuring how much water you put in does cause occasional overfilling. But the capacity of the dripper is 2 cups, so if you know how big your coffee cup is, you can determine how much water to add.
Our favorite part about this food-grade silicone filter is just how simple it is. You could use it with a paper filter for slightly easier cleaning. But it’s pretty simple to just fold up and rinse off to clean — to create less trash and be more environmentally friendly. This is our new go-to way to make coffee while camping, and we’ll definitely be bringing it our my next backpacking trip.
This is the perfect stocking stuffer for the coffee-loving adventurer in your life.
