Best Coffee on the Trail

While you are over at Tier Gear…This one has to be a bit lighter than the old coffee pot that John Wayne boiled over so many Western campfires. In Polypropylene Munieq’s Tetra Drip coffee filter weighs a mere 12 grams and it folds flat making it a very solid competitor to Vargo’s 36 gram titanium offering that I wrote about here: https://www.theultralighthiker.com/2018/09/29/the-ultralight-barista/

Of course this one also comes in titanium and stainless steel. It will make a very large cup (1 1/2 cups) of coffee or two small ones such as Wildo’s famous 24 gram folding cups. It uses a standard cone shaped filter paper.

Available in Polypropylene at Tier Gear for A$16.50 (October 2019)

Over at Munieq it also comes in Stainless Steel or Titanium (and in two sizes: 1 1/2 and 3/1/2 cups) Titanium is heavier (16 grams) a mere nothiong if you have a fetish for this remarkable metal!

The Tetra is an utralight version of Snowpeak’s coffee filter (which weighs about 139 grams):
