"Try Not to Laugh"

Try Not to Laugh when you say you're "roughing' it"

In the heart of the Amazon or up a mountain in Nepal? No matter--the Preva xSportŪ provides espresso to the java junkie on the go!
If you can heat water to near boiling, you can make delicious espresso; simply fill porta-filter with a coffee pod, available at most grocery stores
Then pour hot water in the xSport pressure vessel, press the pump handle five times, wait a few moments and begin enjoying a shot of espresso Includes a cup sized to hold a double shot


Come on you Java Junkies' - buy two, one for you and one for a gift.  Help stimulate the economy.

Copy text from the new item that REI is carrying in their new catalog that I received today.  Page 11.  "Java junkies.  If there is 1 piece of outdoor gear you buy this year.  Preva xSport Espresso Maker (738-712) $49.

Heck, it only weighs a pound.

I've really cut down my coffee consumption, but when I was a big coffee drinker I'd take a French press on car camping trips.  I'd grind the beans at home, and then all I needed was boiling water. It made a very good 4 or 5 cups.

Now that I only drink coffee on an occasional basis, when I do drink it I really notice the effects of the caffeine -  :shock:

As I sit here and type I'm sipping on a steaming cup of Kona Blend coffee that I ground at home.   :shock:  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:

In the R2D2, although you didn't get to experience it at the Basin group meeting due to not using the generator to avoid disturbing others, yea, it was a generator ok area for certain hours, it still seemed "rude" to use.  On a normal R2D2 trip with generator - hot steeming coffee out of the electric coffee pot.  But, those little folgers "coffee bags" work great and also on the trail when backpacking - all you need is a little hot water.  I've found you can get  two or three cups out of a single bag.     I like to start the morning with a cup of java (I'd have said cup of joe, but someone probably would have misconstrued that meaning :lol: ) I also sometimes like a cup of decaf before bed.

to get one of those ice-cream-making balls, too.
As a matter of fact, I _do_ have an opinion on that....
