Gear Review: GSI Outdoors Collapsible Java Drip Coffee Maker

[coffee maker]

Coffee aficionados: Plop this silicone device onto your mug, add a paper cone filter and your favorite dark roast, and you’re just a quick pour away from the perfect cup. It packs down flat to the size of a coaster for easy stowing, thanks to the rubbery folding bellows, and with a hard plastic base it sits sturdily atop a small pot or even a wide-mouth water bottle. “The clear plastic base let me see inside the cup to prevent overfilling, so I was able to line up six cups and fill them all with a single (albeit generous) cone full of grinds.” $13; 4.8 oz.;
