    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    GSI Outdoors Ultralight Java Drip Coffee Maker is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cowboy coffee This is not a "coffee maker". It is not for brewing coffee like an electric countertop coffee maker. Hauling paper filters around in addition to this filter would defeat the purpose of this ultra-minimalist device. This little gem is for straining the grinds out of your cowboy coffee. In other words, heat your water, dump your fresh grinds directly into the pot, stir, for 30 seconds, then pour your java through this strainer into your cup. Rich flavor, no silt in your cup. Rinse your pot and this filter promptly. Easy to make and easy to clean. Yes, a paper filter inside this strainer would make cleanup of the grinds even faster, but that would make your coffee gear twice as bulky and half as Earth-friendly. The only problem with this clip-on filter is its wide size; most coffee mugs will receive the brew just fine, but one camper's mug on my last trip was narrow enough to cause this filter to drip coffee all over the outside of the cup and waste the precious brew.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coffee, Tiny Device Watched a youtube video on pour-over coffeemaking beforehand, and ours turned out very strong and delicious. We used the suggested 3 rounded Tablespoons of med-fine grounds per cup. Other reviewers mentioned that the water went through too fast, producing a weak cup, but we did not have this problem with the ratio & grind. Tried this ultra light little device with and without a filter... found that it cleaned up so easily without it, we ditched using them. Grounds dump out without sticking much and the residue rinses out clean. Good product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleaner Cowboy Coffee I agree with Dunes and Wadis. This is a way to "clean up" your cowboy coffee. Before I saw this I was thinking of looking for a tea strainer to do this job. This is lighter in weight and does a better job. Or this is a different way of making press coffee. Don't underestimate this as a way of making really, really good coffee. You are in control of all the variables: coffee, grind (you do grind your coffee, don't you?), temperature, extraction time�?� Here's how I do it: (1)Heat water and grind the coffee. (2)When the water is about 200°, DUMP THE COFFEE into the water. (3)Stir and cover. (4)After about 4 minutes pour mixture through the mesh filter. By now, most of the grounds will have settled and I pour as few as possible into the mesh. I have never used this with a paper filter. I use mine at home frequently. I use a pyrex measuring cup and heat the water in the microwave. I cover the cup with a saucer to minimize heat loss and pour through this device at the end of 4 minutes as described above. A nice, compact system. I find this to be easier to clean than is a coffee press. My only caution is I don't know how long this will last. It seems durable as long as I don't poke something through the mesh or the seam coming unraveled. I find coffee made this way to be a little cleaner than most press made coffee.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimalist way to have excellent brew This featherweight and simple device makes brewing excellent drip coffee an easy process in the field. The three "feet" slip onto the rim of your mug or cup. Coffee grounds of your choice go into the mesh basket, then hot water is poured (not too fast) over the coffee and the brew drips down into the mug. Experiment a bit to develop the grounds to water ratio that produces the strength of your liking, then stick with it for a good cup every time. To clean up merely dump the used grounds out of the basket. It's a winner!
