I am also a Sweet Maria's fan, but our coffee consumption is so out of hand that we mostly order from Genuine Origin now.  $2.70/lb for single origin coffee from Huehuetenango is hard to beat, and it is great coffee too.

 

At home we use a combination of an OXO automated pour over to be ready when I get up and a Breville espresso maker to keep me going during the day.  In the camper we use a GSI drip pot.  50oz is about what it takes to get the two of us going!     I prefer using a standard mellita paper filter, the coffee is better than the screen types, and cleanup is way easier.   I will admit that I am lazy and pre-grind the coffee for a trip.   I have a hand grinder, but it is just too much work before coffee!

 

For backpacking the Starbucks Via is also our go to, followed up by Nuun energy during the day.  As far as instant coffee, the Via's seem to be as good as it gets.

$2.70 lb.!! Wow!! Great tip on Genuine Origin. I have 3 Huehuetenango's on hand now - all over $6.00 lb!! I see they also have a few  Honduras and Uganda's on hand. I just received 10 lbs of Honduras Cerro Negro from SM that pulls an incredible SO. I tried to order more but it's already sold out. My wife and I only have 1 double shot in the morning so our consumption is minimal. Our home machine is an Elektra Micro Casa and grinder is a Mazzer Mini.

 

I used to attach a cordless drill to my Hario when out wandering but I found I don't like the sound of the drill so I'm back to hand grinding.

Genuine Origin is great, with the caveat that you need to order 65lbs.   We have a little cartel and order a sack every few months to split 2 or 3 ways.  One of the great things about home roasting is that green beans have a very long shelf life relative to pre-roasted beans.    I usually have 20 - 50 pounds on hand and roast two 12oz batches a week.

Hello everyone, I'm a freelancer and I wrote a comparison of travel coffee devices and Presto MyJo is there. I think it might work for someone.
