AEROPRESS TRAVEL TIPS FROM ALEX (President of Strictly USA)
1) Use the included totebag when traveling with the Aeropress. Your Aeropress kit will include: the vessel, strainer, plunger, measuring spoon, stirring paddle, finely ground coffee and micro-filters. That's your complete kit and will serve you very well on your journeys.
2) DO NOT pack the funnel or micro-filter dispenser. Though useful they are not 100% necessary and take up room. Everything else goes as described above.
3) Put your favorite GROUND coffee in a plastic ziplock bag and include enough for your trip based upon # of days, cups of coffee per day and # of coffee drinkers in your party. The bag coffee should fit into the totebag, unless you have a lot.
4) Include a plastic ziplock baggie of micro-filters. Maybe 25. These take up little room and should always be inside the totebag at the ready.
NOTES ON COFFEE: The type of coffee you use is your preference, but we have found a finely ground coffee works best. Our favorite thus far has been the Sumatra coffee on the finely ground setting. It's a robust, tasty, satisfying and eye-opening cup!
