There’s a branch of coffee purists who swear that using a machine to brew your coffee is an abomination. Or at the very least, the people behind The Coffeebrewer think so. It’s a specially designed, PE-coated paper bag that contains 25g of fine ground coffee, as well as a specially positioned filter. You’re supposed to open the bag from the top, pour in 0.5L of boiling water, let stand for 5-8 minutes and pour your fresh coffee out through the side opening. The filter will keep all the grounds inside; it’s almost like a portable french press. We say almost because once you’ve poured half the bag, the remaining coffee will not even touch the grounds inside, preventing the coffee from going bitter over time as it does with a french press. This is a great idea anytime, but especially when camping or in other situations where carrying even the most basic coffee making apparatuses would be inconvenient. We’re not sure what the price is, though if you’re in Europe you can actually buy some in specialty stores and some supermarkets.
