It sure ain’t cheap to stop by a Starbucks everyday for your morning pick-me-up and if you’re traveling, I’m sure you may want to save money any where you can.
But, that also doesn’t mean you can’t have your favorite cup of “JOE” when on the trail or the road.
I personally love the French Press, and decided I wanted to find something along those lines to take with me in my traveling home. I wasn’t so concerned over what kind or brand as much as wanting it to be friendly to my wallet and not shatter in unpredictable terrain while driving. If you’re not familiar with the French Press, one feature that many of them have, is they usually have a glass container for the liquid to go in. This was something I wanted to avoid at all costs. No matter your method of travel, transporting glass is generally not something you want to be doing if isn’t necessary.
Following a bit of deliberation, I went with the Stanley Cook + Brew Set, and I was not disappointed. One of the exciting bonus features in my opinion to this product is that it is two in one. Unlike a coffee pot that you will most likely only use for coffee, this set is designed to convert from coffee maker to heating soup and or any other meal of your choice to heat over stove or fire.
The coffee turned out pretty good.
Just make sure to have your oven mitt ready as those handles will get hot when placed directly in the fire.
And speaking of the handles…What an awesome design where you are able to fold them around the container to save on space
If your choice is to use an indoor or outdoor burner, this works great too, and is so easy! Although we have an indoor burner, I love to be outside and sometimes it will just take more time and resources allowed to make the campfire, so outdoor burner it is. I can personally recommend a portable bottle-top propane camp stove. In either case, indoor or outdoor, you simply place your favorite brew on the burner, then heat, serve, enjoy!
I really do like the Stanley Cook + Brew Set, but have one complaint. I’ve found that if you don’t align the spout just right, you will most likely end up with a mess and coffee somewhere other than your cup. You can always remove the lid and pour very carefully, but it came with a lid that you paid for right? So I’m sure you’ll want to use it.
And in case you were wondering….yup, dishwasher safe.
Quick side note/review:
I always say whatever the kind of coffee you like, drink it. Meaning it doesn’t have to be Starbucks to be good. But…this side review is however for a Starbucks coffee. I personally love a really dark and rich cup of coffee, but we all must come to the realization, it’s not all about us. When traveling with others we must make compromises and this one worked out well! We needed to come to a medium blend compromise and I chose Starbuck’s Colombia Single-Origin Medium blend. It is described as balanced and nutty and I would have to agree this to be an accurate description. I do feel the price to not be overwhelming, but also would like it to go down a few dollars. As always, drink what you like, but don’t forget to share!
And now we return to our regularly scheduled program…
Let’s get back to the Stanley Cook + Brew Set for some final words. Overall I would recommend this product for purchase. And I would honestly recommend it for traveling or not. The best part in my opinion… there is no chance for glass to break. I also only paid around $25 on Amazon.
I would love to know if you have any experience with this or any other products used for preparing your morning sunshine in a mug.
