OUR TAKE Calling all coffee snobs: Your collection of Chemexes and Aeropresses is no longer complete. You need this titanium pour-through filter to bring your taste for coffee to the trail. Like other mesh filters, it makes a full cup of caffeinated goodness in just under a minute. Unlike others, you get durability from titanium construction that outlasts competitors made of plastic or mesh. Caveat: Not every coffee snob will think this simple filter is worth what it costs.
TRAIL CRED “I brought this filter on a two-day trek near Bend, Oregon, and loved how easy it was to clean,” our tester says. “It’s made of metal, so there aren’t other materials like mesh to gunk up.”
