Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best brewing method This in-mug brewing method makes the best coffee! It will even make cold brewed coffee. The engineering is elegant, with the combo lid/base. Be advised that the 150 micron mesh, while competitive with other screen coffee filters, will allow some sediment in the cup, but that is just how it is with mesh filters. Experiment with grind fineness before getting to the trail to find what works best for you. Use burr ground coffee, like the grocery store machines, rather than home blade ground, to get a consistent grind size. I like the steeping action so much I will probably retire my gold mesh drip cone for home use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a GREAT cup of coffee For myself, a good cuppa coffee in the morning is a must on all backpacking trips. The coffee "tea bags" you can buy taste terrible, and other espresso style set ups are bulky and add allot of weight (not to mention difficult. The MSR filter is the lightest way to make a good, quick, easy, and great tasting cup of coffee or tea. The filter is fine enough you don't have a bunch of extra coffee at the bottom of your cup. It also enables you to bring your favorite blend and just dump it in. My only complaint is the top of the filter doesn't stay on. It's great to sit under the filter when in use/in between steeping, but when in your pack in will fall off. This was easily remedied by slapping a rubber band on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes tasty coffee I bought this about a month ago. The coffee I grind with my blade grinder is not consistent. It produces leaves a chalky powdery residue in the bottom of my cup. Grind the coffee at the supermarket on coarse. It makes all the difference. This filter makes 450 ml cup of coffee if 3/4 full. Perhaps 700 ml if is full. It fits nicely atop of my snow peak 450 double wall mug . By the way the cap is a coaster to set the filter on after brewing. It does not snap on to the top of the filter .Easy to clean up after you brew. Tip it over and tap out the grinds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple. Effective. Beautiful. Had the Mugmate for about a year and legitimately use it every single day. (No, YOU have a coffee addiction!) Great for backpacking, when a morning cup of coffee is an essential part of a great trip. We have a community one at my work that gets used by multiple people multiple times a day, and it has shown no signs of wear yet. Not surprising, given that it's an MSR product, but still impressive. Having something that allows me to have freshly ground coffee without having to make enough for a group is crucial, and for that reason it has become a piece of gear I can't live without!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-use item I quit using it for coffee/tea, as instant coffee and tea bags are simpler, though not as tasty. However, I always take it backpacking when I don't take my filter and I expect to obtain my water from fast-moving streams, especially during spring runoff. The Mugmate wedges perfectly into the mouth of a Dromlite water bag, and I can filter pine needles, etc. as I pour collected water from my liter bottle into the water bag. Add the pills, and I'm done with the water chores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coffee Freedom! Love this lil ditty. Saw a fellow guide brew a cup of coffee with one last spring and knew I had to get it. Lightweight and compact, it makes for easy, convenient beverage steeping wherever you've got hot water. Seems durable so far, the true test will come as I tote it around during a spring field season.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh,it's alright. I bought three of these 2 for coffee, one for water filtration. I like my coffee STRONG, so maybe it's me, but i think it takes too long to steep, it's kinda messy, and the little lid that comes with it is really just a coaster, not a lid. I only have one left. As far as prefilter for my water,though, it rocks, but so does pantyhose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RipOff By MSR This is a great product...However, I am quite sure that MSR does not manufacturer it. They buy it from another manufacturer and simply stick it in their packaging and charge double the price for it. I bought several of these for half the cost sold under a different brand name. [...] Look around and you'll find this same product for much cheaper.
