Should you brew coffee while traveling?

Coffee drinkers take their brews seriously. Some people just cannot get out of bed without that first cup of joe in the morning. Anyone who feels this way knows that they need to do something to get their fix when traveling. Finding a way to get the fix takes some time. Some people think they need to go out and find the best coffee shops in the area. While this is not a bad idea, it is not necessary. Market forces have made portable coffee grinders exist.


Travelers may think bringing their own brewing equipment seems pretentious, but serious coffee drinkers do not worry about perceived pretentiousness. They know they need their caffeine to properly interact with other human beings. Serious java enthusiasts do anything they can to get the perfect cup in the morning.


Some people insist on grinding their own beans before they drink their coffee, but the best way to go about this is to never go traveling. Seasoned travelers find that it is easier to grind their beans before they go on vacation. Portable grinders exist, but they are difficult to use and hard to assemble. Seasoned travelers who are also fanatical about their morning brew do not recommend using them.


A simple coffee maker that makes a single cup can be bought from Best Buy. Prices go up from there. More expensive models can sell for over $200.
