not worth it

Verified Buyer Reviewed by repeat customer from olympia wa on Wednesday, July 27, 2011
took this on a short backpacking trip thinking it would be handy. not so much. spent some time testing it out with different amounts of coffee and even added more fuel to get it to brew faster. the faster it brews, the weaker the coffee. and it takes forever to brew either way. definitely not intended for a quick morning coffee fix. it doesn't make very much coffee and it's not easy to make two cups in a row. once it cools down enough to touch it, even with a glove,removing the top from the base knocks any remaining fuel tabs out. messy to clean up too. i was willing to pack this hoping for a good cup of coffee. im pretty picky about good coffee and i would much rather bring instant coffee than take this with me again.
  • Cons: Doesn't make much coffee, Messy and not practical, Really slow brewing
  • Pros: Unique
