Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea, but. . . The coffee maker is a good idea, filter and cup in one, but if you want a decently strong cup of coffee, you need to add a paper filter and fill up the cup. If you try to fill the built-in filter with grounds it backs up the drip and by the time you have a full cup of coffee your coffee is warm at best. If you fill the built-in filter just enough so that the drip goes through at an acceptable rate, you end up drinking hot water that has a hint of coffee flavor. I would recommend getting a regular one-cup coffee maker (Ready-set-joe or the squishy one REI sells) and using a paper filter so that you can enjoy a HOT cup of coffee at whatever strength you wish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes a good cup of coffee... SLOWLY I bought this as a way to make fresh brewed coffee while backpacking. It has yet to be taken on a backpacking trip, but Ive used it several times at home. While it does make a reasonable tasting cup of coffee, the brewing is VERY slow even with course grounds. With fine grounds it takes so long to brew that you end up with a cold cup of coffee. For the price, however, this product can't be beat. Every coffee drinker should have one. Its great for making a cup of joe anywhere, just be sure not to grind your coffee too fine! Also, if your brewing your coffee in cold conditions, bring a piece of tin foil to cover the top to keep the coffee warm while its brewing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Awesome coffee maker, and for [$]? amazing. This is my favorite piece of backpacking gear. Once I started backpacking, I realized I needed a coffee maker so I didnt have to drink the Instant coffee. The only way you could have a problem with this is if you like your coffee instant. I personally enjoy the fact that this is not instant, because it reminds you that good coffee takes time. I have a traditional Costa Rican Coffee maker at home, and this backpackers coffee maker is so similar. In fact its almost easier to use because you just slip the filter into coffee grounds, pull it out, Put it into the funnel and pour the water. Awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cup of joe I have had this coffee maker for several years and I love it. I use it primarily for home use, but purchased it primarily for backpacking. It makes a better cup of coffee than my Cuisinart Brewmaster. I use it everyday for making coffee at home and it makes the perfect cup of coffee. Although it is plastic, I use it for backpacking also. I place it upside down in an empty quart yogurt container and place all my coffee supplies with it. I did this because I was afraid that I would break the rim if I placed it loose in my pack. Some people complain that it is slow. I believe that if you use regular ground coffee this will cure the problem. Perhapa I just lucked into the right combination, but this has been making the perfect cup of coffee every morning for several years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tossing mine This is my second coffee contraption as I search for the perfect cup on the trail. I won't be using it again. I LOVE my coffee dark and hot. This little thing requires a regular grind and then it takes FOREVER to make a single cup. By the time the cup of coffee is ready the coffee is not hot anymore. Trying something else. Yes, I am a coffee snob.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cold coffee Took this on my last backpacking trip and was greatly disappointed. The hot water didn't want to pass through the coffee grounds. The coffee it finally made was too cold by the time I could drink it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't like Bought this coffee maker to take on a car camping trip. Thank goodness I tried it out at home first since it didn't work like I was hoping. First: unbearably slow drip Second: cold coffee by the time it was finished brewing Third: because it took so long to brew, not handy for multiple cups of coffee After reading the reviews, I now understand that this coffee brewer works best with course ground coffee and when grounds are not packed full in compartment. I grind my coffee ahead of time so having to purchase special grinds just for this camping brewer vs. my drip coffee maker at home is too much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Takes too long and clogs I purchased this coffee maker because I thought the idea of combining both the holder (V60 type) and filter in one would be great for camping. There is nothing worse then waking up in the morning from the first night of camping and excited to get a cup of coffee and finding out, your device does not work the way you'd hope. I was a little embarrassed when I was making a friend a cup and the process was taking too long, and not only that it clogged along the way. If you like really weak coffee, lets say 1tbs of grounds, then this might be for you. Great idea, but needs improvement i.e. a way to adjust the unit for different types of strength (light, medium, bold).
