    MSR cook pot: 213g
    Gas: 174g
    MSP Pocket Rocket: 124g
    MSP twinwall mug: 93g
    Plastic container with enough coffee & sugar for 3 shots: 92g
    Anti rattle rag: 35g
    Ti spoon: 15g
    Lighter: 10g

    How low can you go?

    I really don’t get the excessive coffee maker if you’re not going to bring a grinder.

    i take a minimal lightweight collapsible keepy cup and stop in one of the converted horsebox coffee bars that’s popped up every half a mile in the countryside at the moment

    There is a little bit of room for weight reduction but it’s marginal gains territory.

    Ours still contain horses. Horses make terrible coffee.

    OP, do you need both the cook pot and the Espresso pot? Also, sugar? Unless you are Cuban or Vietnamese this is surely a faux pas.

    Yes to two pots, it’s for an Americano darlings, and sugar is premixed with the Lavazza cos I’m a heathen.

    Basically the same meths setup as scotroutes, but sachets of nescafe 3 in 1, no way anyone is lighter than that.

    Aye, it’s shite, but when I’ve just woke up on a summit, or I’m cold and wet, my coffee standards drop massively, and I canny be going with the faff. 😁

    500ish g IIRC but thats with a weekends fuel and is also cooking stuff. and makes good coffee reliably and quickly 🙂

    Straight out of my bag from last nights hiking bivi.

    Alpkit myti mug
    eBay titanium burner
    Gas
    Ti spoon
    Firestone
    Plastic cup
    Ultralight weight windshield

    Aeropress or more recently Coffee rocket which is great slow especially if the grind is the wrong size.

    Tbh, it’s not even the weight of proper coffee stuff, it’s the bulk, aeropress? Massive. F that

    Bare bones meth stove , ti mug

    Ortlieb filter holder and paper filter.

    I’d rather just mix my hot water with peat than suffer Nescafé…. Infact I would and do drink tea if nescafes the only coffee option…..and I hate tea.

    Meths set up with a snow peak 450 mug

    The coffee add on (used for last weekends WRT) is a GSI ultralight java drip and some ground coffee haven’t got a weight or a pic, but can’t imagine you’ll find lighter…

    Actually, sorry, I use a sea to summit x seal and go mug. Heavier than some cups but packs down flat so easier for Bikepacking

    Wouldn’t be so bad if there was an instant that came close to not tasting burnt.

    Might as well just pop a couple of proplus for all the resemblance nescafe has to coffee.

    Grew up thinking I didn’t like coffee….just turned out I didn’t like instant.

    Not going for lightweight as I will usually bring a grinder. But I boil the water on a wood gas stove so you’re not taking fuel until you start thinking about brewing up.

    The Taylor’s coffee bags are a decent compromise for me. I double bag for strength and it’s definitely way better than instant with none of the weight/faff of a dedicated maker.

    The further I get from the crowds the lower my coffee standards go. I can’t be bothered with faffing about so take instant and coffeemate. As long as it’s hot and wet, I’m happy

    I use a GSI collapsible filter cone with paper filters that I pre-load with coffee at home. I like the process of making it and I like being able to easily pack out the paper & grounds with almost no mess. I don’t really enjoy drinking instant.

    I’ve tried quite a few other options in the past, including aeropress, stovetop & even cowboy style but this seems to be the best balance of pack size & coffee quality for me.

    AlpKit ti mug.

    Speedster stove and foil windshield.

    GSI drip coffee maker and cup set.

    Coffee.

    Edit: I’ve just weighed it without coffee but with a tea light candle in there and 100ml of meths – 476g. Bare basics is 380g.

    I’ve got cone filter (V60) and aeropress. Cone presumably weighs a chunk less but aeropress can make a stronger coffee if that’s what you like. Aeropress is a bit more faffy but not excessively so and the v60 does take a while to make a mug full anyway, but I use the v60 nowadays for less faff and because I like black filter coffee. Not tried the bags but presumably they can replicate the idea of a filter pretty well for these purposes?

    350ml mug with plastic cup, windshield, 8g Bearbones meths stove, lighter and ground coffee inside. Meths bottle for 2 brews fits in there or a larger bottle for more than one night out. Mug stored in a DIY mug cosy to keep water warm while making coffee. 200g or so. Plastic cap from a gravy granules tub fits on top of the mug perfectly.

    I just near-boil water then stir the grounds in, stir it again a minute later, repeat, then pour off the coffee into the cup when the grounds have sunk. Makes a good coffee.

    Starbucks Via or Nescafe Azera is ok for instant. Prefer cowboy coffee though.

    Jetboil add on (since Im taking that anyway to warm up food)
    Takes up no extra space and weighs bugger all
    Haven’t come across anything more convenient

    Exactly. YOU didn’t.

    Indeed but it doesn’t make nescafe taste any more like a coffee.

    Having looked up why it tastes burnt it appears that nescafe do roast to a much higher temperature than most bean/ground companies so it’s not just my taste buds that imagine it – probably part of why Costa and Starbucks are so popular in the UK as they have a similar affliction in the UK.

    But by over roasting it does mean that all the coffees taste the same as the fruityness is burnt right out of it. #maxproductiongains
