How I make damn good coffee on the go
Overall, siphon coffee is my favorite. Unfortunately, the setup for siphon brew isn't travel friendly.
The good news is the 1-2 combo of a Porlex mini grinder and Cores gold filter works flawlessly. If you're wondering if you should purchase, here are the pros and cons.
- Easy to travel with
- Makes great coffee
- Grinder can adjust from fine to course
- Durable materials (made in Japan)
- Easy to clean
- Gold filter fits on a variety of cup sizes
- Makes 1 cup at a time
Overall, I don't mind that it only makes 1 cup; I'm a solo traveler. Should I ever need to make 2 cups, it only take 2-3 more minutes.
Now that I think about it, drip coffee from cafes is also a 1-cup brew.
Where to buy
I purchased my grinder and filter in a Japanese store called Tokyo Hands. If you happen to be in Japan... they should have both in stock.
If you're not, I checked on Amazon and they're available there as well. The prices are roughly the same.
