The 3 Best Coffee Makers For travelling
A wise man once said, “To travel is to live”. But it’s like that saying is missing when you’re a coffee lover. When I travel, it often means I have to buy my coffee at an airport, or on the highway. And there it is more the rule than the exception that the coffee I buy is brewed on low-quality coffee beans, brewed on a giant industrial machine, and has been on a hot plate for hours.
So I just rewrote that saying today. “To travel, with good coffee, is to live”. Done. Then it is in place.
And so that that saying doesn’t stand alone, I’ve put together a list of the best coffee brewers you can take on your journey, so it’s easy for you to travel, with good coffee.

The best coffee makers for your trip
Alright, no more time to waste… lets check out my favorie options, when it comes to going on a trips and needing some great coffee 🙂
Espro Travel Press
Piston jug and thermocouple in one
I love using my regular Bodum plunger jug at home. It gives me a good amount of coffee, light and simple. But the idea of bringing a regular jug on the journey is nerve-wracking. Such a glass jug cannot possibly last long in the boot.
Espro Travel Press is a piston jug and thermocouple in one. Without compromising the quality or functionality of some of the parts. The plunger is better than most regular plungers, and the thermocouple kicks ass on many other thermocouples. Espro Travel Press uses the same technology as the regular Espro piston jugs and delivers unmatched results. Espro Travel Press has a patented dual filter system where both filters are up to 12 times finer than other piston jugs on the market. That means: no left over coffee grounds. Lots of flavor!
AeroPress coffee maker
I almost feel like one of the smart sellers from the TV shop when I show how
this smart plastic gadget works. For those I show the AeroPress, respond almost as violently as a TV shop audience does. But without the flaps. Just more “Wow” and “Aaarh”. And of course a little “Mmmm” when they taste the end result.
I imagine everyone who has an AeroPress at home and shows it to friends and acquaintances gets the same reactions.
The reason people react so positively to it is because you can make a fantastic cup of coffee, light and simple, without the use of electricity. You only need boiling water and ground coffee.
At the same time, the spirit guard is easy to clean. It’s true that when you brew coffee with an AeroPress, you push through a plunger that leaves the rest of the coffee maker completely clean. The only place you need to clean it is at the end. And you can easily do this by hand, under a little running water.
If you pass a good coffee shop on your trip, chances are you’ll see them using AeroPress for their hand-brewed coffee. It is used in renowned coffee shops, such as La Cabra in Aarhus, The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, and many other coffee shops, around the world.
AeroPress can brew the same good cup of coffee after another. Or you can vary. It can brew a light refreshing cup of coffee or a more intense and deep coffee. You decide.
Hario 1-cup V60 coffee funnel in plastic
Portable filter coffee
I love using my Hario coffee maker at home. It brews amazing filter coffee that no coffee maker comes close to. But at home, of course, I upgraded with a nice ceramic Hario V60 coffee funnel. It’s just not that handy to take on the trip. That’s why I also have a Hario 1-cup V60 plastic coffee funnel.
The plastic coffee hopper can be easily packed, along with the rest of the boot, without the risk of it breaking. It does not weigh a stick, is hard to beat, does not cost the world, and then you can brew directly into your cup. When you sit by the fire and boil some water, you just have to grind a little coffee bean, put in a filter, and then it doesn’t take many minutes before you sit with a cup of delicious coffee in your hand and look at the stars.
These small coffee gadgets, are actually super important if you are on the road or travelling a lot. I never knew how important until one day I forgot mine on a camping trip and was dying for a hot cup of coffee.
I hope you find the coffee maker that best suits your taste and your journey.
