“If only” and “I should have” were the phrases I uttered when I used GSI Outdoors Commuter Javapress for the first time.
You see, when I was traveling around the world, there were countless days when I had to drink crappy instant, sugary weak coffee, which I call ‘crapachino’.
I had to endure the ‘crapachino’ days. Particularly, the 4 straight days on the Trans-Siberian railroad going from Moscow to Irkutsk, then continuing with the 2 days on the Trans-Mongolian railroad from Irkutsk to Ulan Bator, then 2 more days onto Beijing.
The train ride took a total of seven nights and spanned over 4700 miles, not counting the days at the destinations along the way. It was an amazing trip but with one thing lacking: Freshly brewed coffee!
GSI Outdoors Commuter Javapress is the answer to having fresh coffee on the go. This easy-to-use portable, 15 fl. oz. French press coffee maker/travel mug combination will sweeten your days on the road in remote parts of the world where fresh coffee is as precious as clean water.
- Works just like Bodum French press
- Functions as a coffee maker and mug
- Great for minimalists who prefer gear with multiple functions
- The mesh in the inner carafe works well even with finely ground coffee beans
- No fuss, no plunger rod and easy to use
- Has a sealable lid with loop
- Easy to clean
- Weighs only 9.6 oz.
- Removable insulating sleeve that adds color to the mug
- Removable non-slip foot
- You pay one price and get two – a coffee maker and a travel mug
- Can be used for loose tea
I’ve been testing GSI Outdoors Commuter Javapress for 10 days now. I didn’t have any problems with spills until one day when I didn’t push the inner carafe all the way down. I brought it on a road trip to Montauk Point Lighthouse. It fits perfectly in a cup holder. I took it on my trip to Manhattan via bus and train.
- Not insulated
- Will spill if inner carafe is not pushed all the way down (minor problem)
GSI Outdoors Commuter Javapress insulating sleeve comes in 5 colors – red, green, blue, orange and graphite. So each family member can identify their mug and you’ll always know which mug is yours on a table or in the campervan.
Your GSI Outdoors Commuter Javapress comes with easy how to use and care instructions.
The GSI Outdoors Commuter Javapress is the answer for travelers wanting freshly brewed coffee on the go. It is ideal for long-term travelers, adventurers, campers, road-trippers, truckers and commuters.
If you don’t have the time to brew a fresh cup of coffee at home and find yourself queuing in Starbucks paying about $4.50 every morning, you may want to consider getting the GSI Outdoors Commuter Javapress. It is one way to conserve paper cups and save money.
Consider this: $4.50 x 5 days a week = $22.50 per week spent on Starbucks coffee. (Around $90 per month.)
The 15 oz. GSI Outdoors Commuter Javapress cost retail $22.95, meaning if you replace your Starbucks expenses with homemade coffee using the Javapress, you’ll almost save the entire cost of the Javapress in a week.
