Coffee Break / Journeying Part 2

Every journey requires a break, or does it not? This journey as outlined in Coffee Journeying is a break in itself, in two ways: firstly, as a reader of this, take a break and view this coffee journey, part 2; and secondly, there’s a ‘break’ in a new development that this journey promised in the last Tale, namely, three improvements required in that quest for that perfect cup on the trails.


As a reminder, the three areas of improvement required were the cup, the carrier bag, and the frother. The journey results in this Tale…


The Cup:

This mug is great because it:

  • Keeps coffee at the desired temperature for a long period of time (doesn’t lose heat easily because of its double wall structure).
  • Has a lid which fits and assists in this heat retention.
  • Does not burn ones hands or lips when holding or drinking from it respectively due to the double wall thickness.
  • An AeroPress fits perfectly when extracting.
  • Super strong.
  • Extremely light.
  • Compact and small to fit in one’s bag snugly (comes with a small pouch).


The Carrier Bag:

This bag is great because it is basically the only bag that I could find that stores all of the required equipment in this Tale and the previous one above together compactly enough (made for the AeroPress by AeroPress). It was so important for the upcoming Sojourn that I had to import it as it is not available in South Africa.


The Frother:

This added perk really is just that – a compact, semi-lightweight bliss for cappuccinos! With an easily detachable whisk, and being small enough to fit in the bag, this frother takes two AA batteries and whips up a seriously milky storm!


Enjoy taking a break, to journeying in making your ideal cup of coffee on the trails!
