Travel Gadget: Aeropress Coffee Maker

Most hotels offer some form of coffee making facilities in their bedrooms. Unfortunately, however, there is very little consistency in what’s available. If you’re extremely lucky you’ll get a Nespresso machine or a Keurig machine. Most of the time, though, you’ll be lucky if you get instant coffee.

If you spend a lot of time on the road and like good coffee then relying on what the hotel offers in your room is probably not the way to go.

So what can you do?

Since a lot of hotels do offer a kettle of some kind then a good option is an Aeropress. It’s cost-effective and pretty easy to use.

Here’s what you get:


The Aeropress makes really good coffee and, most importantly, doesn’t take up much space in your suitcase. You can easily put your Aeropress in the bottom of your bag with a bag of ground coffee.

So as long as the hotel room has some way of heating water you’ll be all set!

    I’ve been thinking of getting one of those for ages. Now I just need to find a stylish and practical way to carry coffee with me and the world’s my flat-white!

      How much coffee would you normally carry with you? I haven’t found a sane solution for carrying coffee yet either. At the moment I simply pack a bag of coffee in my suitcase and work from there.
      Maybe a sandwich bag might be a starting point, though it’s obviously not that stylish.
      Most of the “normal” storage containers for coffee are rigid, so they’d take up more space in my bag than I’d like and could simply break.

      Any suggestions welcome 🙂
