Roadside Coffees while out on a ride
« on: January 11, 2021, 12:36:59 pm »
I often see people mentioning the fact that they make some coffee while out and about on their bikes.

This intrigues me...

I am keen on trying this.  I mostly try and stop for a coffee somewhere while I'm on a trip; this might me more fun.

Show/tell me some of your setups. 

I'm eager to learn and start the habit       :sip:

Look tastes differ and you will get a lot of different opinions - but I take this with me everywhere with my little gas stove.
I like my coffee strong and creamy / lots of almost boiling milk (about 70/30) and this works very nice.
Mine is not the same as in the pic, I got it for R49 from checkers about 3 years ago, so money well spend.

Very interested here too, I love my coffee and would love to make a quick? roadside cuppa while another has a smoke or something.

@BliknÍrs How long does it take you to sort yourself out? Espresso sized or full cup sized?
So much to do, so little time. Better get going then!

I have a similar set-up
I use my little gas stove and a stainless Bialetti mokka pot (3 cup size).....it just about fills a normal coffee mug as the 3-cup refers to 3 cups of espresso)
It takes 8 - 10 mins to make a cup

Flask will work if its short term - we have done that too...

I have a fake Bialetti as well - 3 in fact - that I take on bike or 4x4 trips - small CampingGaz stove or multifuel stove, coffee at will!

Someone on the forum was selling drip filters with a plastic holder that fits straight on a mug - that would work too....

Spoilt myself with an aeropress before my most recent trip. Best thing ever for me to make a quick cuppa.

Aeropress is the way forward, although it took me a while to get the grind right.
Preloaded Aeropress plus a Stanley flask of hot water means a quick & easy roadside coffee.

Presses are too bulky. I use a diffuser.

The blue container / cover fits inside my travel mug, so it only takes up the space of a mug with a short stick.

The taste from the Aeropress differs a lot to the percolated coffees.
I am afraid its two different camps like KTM & BMW and what I meant with tastes differ.
I don't care for the Aeropress taste and my friend here, he has already posted, thinks my percolator coffee sucks

I'm considering this setup (R269) , with a flask of hot water or the small gas stove. Not sure yet, all the toys adds up
Although I also enjoy sitting down for a comfy coffee shop cuppacino
