You’re just waking up on a cold morning after spending the entire previous day on the trail. You’ve got a big day ahead and you need an extra boost of energy to get you going.

As our friends over at GSI put it:

“For you, coffee is not merely black; it is not simply a beverage to be had with cream and sugar, no, coffee is a ritual, an affirmation of life, a warm embrace in the morning and a meditation on the flavor of the day to be savored with dessert. For you, only the finest beans, the most aromatic roast and the fullest flavor will do. Coffee is a world tour, a rich journey from Kona to Columbia and from Ethiopia to Java awaking you to new experiences and new ideas.”

Whether you prefer french press or pour over, there’s a lightweight option for taking your brew into the backcountry.
