Growers Cup Coffee is best described as a disposable French press that can be brewed almost anywhere. Inside the pouch is a filter with 26 g of freshly ground specialty coffee. To brew 3 cups of coffee, all you need is to open it, pour in 1/2 L of hot water, and let it brew 5-8 minutes. The unique brewing system is designed to preserve the coffee's natural oils. This enhances the delicate flavours and finer aromas of the coffee, which otherwise can only be achieved by using a French press. The filter will effectively separate the brewed coffee from the grounds and when you have served the first 1 1/2 cups, the remaining coffee will be under the filter and the brewing process will stop. This means that the coffee will not go bitter over time like in a French Press. Available in 5 flavors from Bolivia, Ethiopia, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua. Check out the Articles and Research Tab above to read about the different flavor profiles.

This system makes excellent coffee in an ideal amount for two people, or one coffee addict. Theres a bit of spillage as you get used to working the spout, but nothing major. The only drawback is the disposal nature of the packaging, which is why I gave it 4 stars rather than 5. I hate to create that much trash, so Im going to try out a simple mug-filter system and see how that goes. For once-in-a-while use, though, this is probably the best tasting camp coffee Ive ever had.
Pros: Convenient Easy to dispose/clean-up Cons: Coffee tastes weak
