Hello, everyone!

Are you one of those people who live and breathe coffee and love to travel as well? Then this article is for you. If having the best cup of coffee makes your day, don’t allow the inconvenience that traveling brings to get you down. You can bring your coffee, make it and drink it, too. There is a way you can have your coffee the best way you want it, anytime and anywhere in the world.

You will be amazed at the various kinds of travel coffee kits you can now find in the market, all with the hope that you still get to enjoy the comfort that your coffee brings away from the confines of your home. Make sure that before you choose your travel coffee kit, it must have all the essential equipment you need in brewing that perfect coffee on-the-go. Read on for tips to traveling and bringing along your own coffee making supplies. 

Use a travel-size grinder

As coffee enthusiast, you probably know how the grind size of coffee affects the taste. If you buy ground coffee, you have to settle for its size. On the other hand, if you do the grinding the beans yourself, you get the exact size of coffee grounds that will extract the right flavor that you would want for your coffee. It is said that hand grinding produces better coffee because aroma and taste are retained more. What’s more, you don’t need electricity to operate it and works more quietly than the electric counterpart. There is an excellent advantage to finding the best manual coffee grinder, one that could fit in your coffee travel kit. 


Keep your beans in an airtight container

To keep your coffee beans as fresh as can be, especially during trips, you need an airtight container to keep it in good quality. You may find some coffee travel kits with or without a storage container. If you think you are going to travel for quite a while, find one which can hold just the right amount you’ll need for your travel. 


Bring a sturdy coffee cup or tumbler

Of course, a good coffee cup is needed to enjoy a good cup of coffee. Travel coffee kits are called such because they are sturdy and small, so expect the coffee cups that come with it are likewise. It does not matter if a coffee cup is big or small, as long as it holds greatly pressed and brewed coffee to keep you warm and comfy during those cold nights traveling. If you want to keep your brewed coffee warmer for a longer time, you can look for those thermos-type coffee mugs. Aside from keeping your coffee warm, it helps to avoid scalding your hands from the heat. Coffee cups with handles which comes with travel kits can also give you this benefit but would probably occupy more space. 


Get a mini coffee press equipment

Each person has his own preference in just about everything, same as the preference for how one takes his or her coffee. You can pump, press or simply pour out. Most of the time, coffee which undergoes more process is better tasting than what you get in an instant. Coffee travel kits can also use pressure for brewing your coffee. Mini coffee press equipment are available for coffee travel kits. They let you enjoy brewed coffee as you do it at home.

It is quite interesting how these days you can bring almost everything when you travel. Your love for good coffee is one such example. It involves many processes to achieve a perfect cup but can now be done from one handy-dandy bag.

    Great tips! I’m a tea drinker and always take my own tea bags and mug (and sometimes even travel kettle) with me when I’m travelling… nowhere else’s tea tastes quite the same lol!

    I don’t drink coffee, but my husband does. And we like to travel. I never thought of bringing our own coffee supplies to avoid overpaying when we aren’t home.

    My In-Laws bought a keurig to travel with them long before they were cute and small. They lugged it everywhere and it made them pretty happy. I love what people will do to have a good cup of coffee

    Life is TOO short for hotel coffee that’s gross… unless they’re serving the good stuff, of course. I though I was the only one that dreamed of taking good coffee on trips with me. Great post.

    Haha finally someone “gets” why we do this! I admit, though, we cheat a bit and grind the coffee at home first before sealing it in a zip-top bag. But we pour through the cone every morning whether at home or on the road, and we now know which travel mugs work best with which cones, so we always pair them up right 🙂
