GSI Outdoors Java Press & Infinity Backpacker Mug Gear Review

GSI Outdoors delivers a lightweight, compact and super packable option for brewing hot drinks on the go.

There’s nothing like that first cup of hot coffee or tea on a chilly morning in the mountains.

Thanks to GSI Outdoors, the process of getting that first cup just got faster and easier. We’ve been using the Commuter Java Press and Infinity Backpacker Mug for the last few months while camping and backpacking, and have been loving the fresh-pressed flavor and convenience they offer. Our morning cup of joe on the trail just got one heck of a major upgrade.

GSI Outdoors Commuter Java Press & Infinity Backpacker Mug: Our Review

 

Commuter Java Press

This brilliant little invention combines a French Press and insulated travel mug and rolls it all into one portable coffee brewing system. The Commuter Java Press is constructed of heavy duty, durable plastic and features a lid with tight fitting rubber gaskets, helping prevent leaks and spills. The exterior is wrapped in a removable, insulated sleeve keeping hot drinks warm while enjoying an early morning sunrise. The Java Press also features a rubber, non slip foot that helps keep it steady on slippery surfaces.

The Java Press is super easy to use. Just load up ground coffee in the bottom of the outer container, pour in hot water, let it brew for a bit. Then slide in the inner container with mesh screen, pressing the grounds to the bottom. Voila! Hot, fresh brewed coffee without dealing with messy grounds.

Infinity Backpacker Mug

The Infinity Backpacker Mug makes a great companion to the Java Press and lets us share the coffee love with a friend. This mug is made out of the same heavy duty plastic as the Java Press with a similar style lid, tight fitting rubber gaskets and insulated sleeve. The Infinity Backpacker Mug also features a collapsable handle that keeps it securely in your hand.
