looks like any other stovetop espresso machine. can get great coffee out of these things, fresh ground beans just before departure in a sealed container should see you through. will taste better than pre-ground supermarket coffee. the effort you go to is how much you like your coffee. milk is your biggest problem.

the alternative is to adventure ride down around Leichhardt, or get the nestle condensed milk/coffee mix in a tube....

Cheers

Rob

Get a stainless steel coffee plunger when Aldi has them. From what I've read perculators ruin coffee. I have a semi professional coffee machine at home and I can get a good brew out of a plunger. It comes down to fresh beans and a good grinder. Most coffee snobs will tell you if your on a budget spend $500 on a grinder and use a plunger till you can afford a machine.

Of course you can't take the grinder on the bike, so your limited with taking pre ground. Otherwise one of those Italian style pots that you put the coffee in the top and it boils the water through under pressure work good too. You can pick them up for around $20 and sit it on the campfire. I don't like them because their aluminium, but they make a pretty good brew and are cheap enough to lose.

I'm a coffee tragic, have so many different makers, but all in the cupboard now since I got one of theseBest home coffee I've ever made!
Its a bit of kit to take on the road, but well worth it IMO!

same here.. and another vote for the aeropress...
I bought it for the camping, but ended up taking mine to work with me.

Though at home I use a larger machine.

+1 for the aeropress when away.

You will need a good hand grinder as well, expect to pay over $100 for a decent one. But be warned it can be a pain in the arse grinding all the time. Cheap grinders just can't produce consistent quality time and time again, and often can't go fine enough.

If your'e not right into your coffee, a good stainless steel stove top expresso unit is easy to use with nothing to think about other than the amount of coffee and grind to use. I find the cheaper aluminum ones taint the taste(for me anyway)

Aeropress can take a little practice but the results are worth the effort when you get it right.

Plungers are ok, but you do need to time it right. Most people tend to let the coffee steep for too long giving a bitter taste (same for the aeropress if left too long).

Above all else, fresh beans are a must, regardless of the brewing method.
