Coffee and traveling, are my two passions.
When traveling, coffee is a must.
Sadly, most airports only offer coffee that was brewed hours ago. On a road trip, the shortest route is often filled with gas station coffee. Need I say more there? And hotel coffee, well, let’s just say I don’t look forward to the k-cups awaiting me, lol.
I tried to solve these problems by brewing coffee at home. When flying, I had to leave my travel mug in the car. On the road, the one cup I would bring, was never enough. Time and time again, as a coffee geek, I have struggled to enjoy fresh coffee while traveling. I started bringing my Aeropress with me to hotels, but that didn’t solve my problem while on the road or in the air.
Enter, the Osaka Pour Over Dripper Thermos! When I was approached to test it out, I was SUPER excited! Was this the answer to my coffee travel whoas?!
Within days of my latest trip to San Diego, California, the thermos arrived. The night before, I ground the coffee, placed it in a baggie and packed both the thermos and coffee in my carry on bag. The flight was early and I had a layover at 10am that morning. During my layover, I found a restaurant that served hot tea. I asked them for some hot water and they gave it to me for free. I went to the table and began using the pour over dripper. Within minutes, I had freshly brewed, local coffee while I was traveling – it was fantastic!!! I didn’t have to settle for nasty airport coffee anymore! The Osaka Pour Over Dripper with thermos was my answer!
I found it very easy to assemble and use. It comes with a reusable filter and the rubber base keeps it in place while making the coffee. It is insulated, so it will keep the coffee hot for hours. Once I arrived inÂ San Diego, I wanted to test it again with my other travel predicament.Â Hotel room coffee.
Waking up in a hotel room, I often dread my first cup of coffee, but today was different – I had the Osaka Pour Over Dripper with me! I pulled out my ground coffee from home and reached for the Keurig machine, yup, you read that right. The Keurig, while not my preference for a fresh cup of coffee, makes wonderful hot water, lol.
I started to easily assemble the pour over dripper and then poured hot water over my coffee. In minutes, I had fresh coffee made pour over style – IN MY HOTEL ROOM! This was an incredible moment for me – how had I lived without this pour over dripper?!
I am looking forward to taking this with me on my next road trip! When I walk into the gas station, I won’t be suffering though the coffee, but simply grabbing some hot water.Â I will be able enjoy my fresh, local coffee anywhere and anytime! Although I do not have a job/office I drive to everyday, I imagine this will also solve the nasty workplace coffee problem for many of you!
This is a must have item for every coffee drinker. It is SUPER easy to use and affordable too! Even if you have never made a “pour over” coffee before. It is actually a pretty simple process.Pourover coffee is brewing that involves pouring hot water over and through the grounds to extract the coffee flavors into your cup or serving vessel Click To Tweet
