There was a fun blog post recently in The LA times about a lady who travels and takes her little one cup coffee maker with her, its called a AeroPress and features two chambers for brewing. You simply place the maker on top of a cup then in the lower chamber add ground coffee over a filter and hot water (most hotels have this in the lobby or the bar) then use the plunger to make the cup of coffee like a mini fresh press. The only difference is the fact the coffee doesn’t sit in the grounds. Its been getting rave reviews.
You could also take a mini french press along with a mini electric kettle for boiling the water for a perfect cup of Java.
So even when your traveling don’t forget to pack your favorite gourmet coffee beans!
