Ultimate Camping Convenience

The Jetboil Silicone Coffee Press is a game-changer for outdoor enthusiasts who crave their morning caffeine fix. With this nifty coffee camping gear, you can enjoy freshly brewed coffee wherever you go. Simply pack it along with your Jetboil stove, and you’re all set to brew a hot cup of java in the wilderness. No more settling for instant coffee or bulky equipment as this 1.3 oz coffee press makes your camping coffee routine easy.

Although there are many good camping french press and aero press products on the market, the Jetboil Silicone Coffee Press has the benefit of working with your existing camp cooking system. This means you only need one piece for your coffee camping gear arsenal. Thanks to its collapsibility, this press breaks down into three parts and fits right inside the jetboil when not in use.  So, it’s easy to pack and you’ll be sure to remember where you packed it!Jetboil silicone french press on stump outdoors, purple flowers featuring in Espresso Dave Coffee Catering blog

I use my Silicone Coffee Press with a decade-old Jetboil Flash stove, but it is compatible with the Flash, MicroMo, and Zip models. For those who have a larger diameter Jetboil model, there is a grande size press that fits, too.

Coffee Camping Gear Built to Last

One standout feature of the Jetboil Silicone Coffee Press is its durability. Built to withstand outdoor use, this trusty coffee camping gear has been with me on many camping trips and hikes. Despite rough handling and extreme conditions, my Silicone Coffee Press has delivered delicious coffee every time.

For example, I remember that time when I was camping near Mt. Pierce in the White Mountains, it served up a delightful dark roast in 10°F without any hiccups! After a sleepless night of high winds and periodically knocking snow off the tent, I was sure glad to have a little caffeine in my system when the sun finally rose. Investing in quality gear like this enhances your outdoor experience and saves you money by reducing the need for replacements.

Eco-Friendly Coffee Camping Gear

Beyond its practicality and durability, the Jetboil Silicone Coffee Press also champions sustainability. By choosing a french press over single-use coffee pods, instant coffee packets, and disposable filters, you’re reducing your carbon footprint and total waste both at home and in the backcountry.

Speaking of the backcountry, I recently went on two camping trips in the Cascades of Washington. I was fortunate to witness alpine lakes! I saw wildflowers of every color with monumental mountains towering overhead. While the area was breathtaking, I was heartbroken by the amount of trash from single use products that littered our campsites. Steaming my vegetables and making coffee with my coffee press piece helped me cut down on the waste I produced. In turn, this lowered the chance of me accidentally littering.Male hand holding Jetboil french coffee press with steamed carrots outdoors featured in Espresso Dave coffee camping gear blog post
