I’ve always been a plunger coffee type of guy so if I’m making coffee on the trail then this is one of my two preferred options. I’ve been using Jetboil stoves for a majority of my hikes over the past three years and am relatively new to using their coffee press. This option pretty much replicates what make I make at home. I mean why bother otherwise?
The Grande part of the name of this device refers to the larger size that suits the wider Jetboil stove pots which include the Jetboil MiniMo, Sumo, Sumo TI. The Jetboil Grande is all also compatible with the 1-Liter Short and 1.8-Liter spare cups. Jetboil also produces the smaller Jetboil Coffee Press which suits the narrower Zip, Flash, Flash Lite, MicroMo, PCS Sol and Sol TI cook systems.
From a usage perspective if you use a coffee press at home then this unit is exactly the same. Jetboil’s only recommendation is that you remove the pot from the stove unit prior to using the plunger so you don’t run the risk of melting the plastic plunger unit.
Storage of this unit is within the Jetboil stove with the plastic plunger unit being stored in the plastic cup on the bottom of the unit and the metal rod being totes with the stove unit inside the pot. They’ve thought of everything in designing this stove.
There are a couple of downsides to this unit – the first one being that unlike your plunger at home which will have a pouring spout, this unit doesn’t so it takes a bit of skill to get the coffee in your cup without spilling. The second negative is if all you do with your Jetboil is boil water then it will require an additional clean. Rather than just tipping up the pot and letting it dry you actually need to rinse the pot out or run the risk of getting coffee coffee taste into all your food.
So if you are a Jetboil stove user and can’t get by without your coffee, then this little add on accessory is something to consider.
An ideal add on for Jetboil users
