Climber Coffee Systems

For some of us in the morning, coffee matters. Not just packaged cream coffee sticks and/or stale grinds bought at the store, but REAL GOOD COFFEE. However, one of the minor drawbacks to making that ideal coffee is all the extra accoutrements that have to be packed in to make it. This usually means that not only does one end up sacrificing the extra space for those items(e.g. filter stand, portable grinder, French press, Bialetti, etc.) in the pack, but also ends up adding extra weight to lug in.

Although this idea of portable coffee filtering systems isn’t original, we have gone ahead and come up with a fun page and some innovative solutions that are dedicated to creative coffee systems that will minimize weight, bulk and money for all the coffee climbers out there. A lot of these fun creative coffee systems we’ve come up allows one to not just be able to pack more things into the campground, but also makes it much more possible to enjoy real coffee during a multi-day climb where such coffee items may likely have otherwise been discarded to make space or save weight for more important gears.

Buying pre-packaged coffee drip systems are widely available here in South Korea; however, they might not meet up to your coffee snobbery. Also, similar systems, like disposable tea bags do not filter so well and can leave you with a grainy taste in your mouth. The above systems are ultra-cheap, light, compact, environmentally friendly and easy to put together.

FAILURE NOTE: If one of the below systems fail(e.g. the bottom of the filter collapses) and you are left with a bottle full of coffee grains mixed in your coffee, let the coffee grains settle, and pour the uninhibited coffee into a cup to drink.

CCC-06: NUTTY DRIP-TIP

  • REQUIRED ITEMS: Standard wire nut, boiling hot water, empty Nalgene bottle, yesterday fresh coffee grinds, standard coffee filter, a few Ziplock bags to package grinds, filter, and Sierra cup(optional).
  • PACKING: Package your grinds into a Ziplock and ziplock that bag of grinds and filter together. Packs super nicely almost anywhere(e.g. empty Nalgene, pot set, pack toppocket, etc.). Since the nut is already part of your rack, maximum weight is only just more than the weight of the grounds, filter, and the Ziploc baggies.
  • SETUP: Bring water to a boil and have your items out and prepared.
  • STEPS: Insert one filter into the other, wet them in your pot of water. Insert the filters into the bottle mouth head, bending or lining the edges of the filters over the outside lip of the bottle. Next, loosen the chock away from the far of the wire and wrap the wire loop around the bottle mouth and filters. The grade of the wire shouldn’t matter too much since the tension on it should be enough pressure to pinch and hold the filters to the bottle mouth. If uncertain, simply cinch the nut tighter to squeeze the filter tightly against the bottle. The thinner the wire, the better. Deposit coffee grounds, pour boiling water in and drip away. For more coffee, pour in more hot water…about three pours will fill one Sierra cup.

  • NOTE: Standard wire nut refers to a wire that loops back on itself– the single wire stems can’t wrap around the mouth of the bottle. Boiling hot water and nearly fresh coffee grounds is going to serve up the best cup of coffee. For a larger crew of drinkers, just deposit more grounds into the same old filter along with more hot water. To be more environmentally conscience, give the bottle top filter holder a couple extra uses before tossing it. This is a fantastic way to be more environmentally-conscience since no more than a few coffee filters is required and is also ultra-light since the only extra weight are the filters, grounds and water it takes to make the coffee.



    CCC-05: RUBBER DRIP TIP

  • REQUIRED ITEMS: fat rubber band, boiling hot water, empty Nalgene bottle, yesterday fresh coffee grinds, standard coffee filter, a few Ziplock bags to package grinds, filter, and Sierra cup(optional).
  • PACKING: Package your grinds into a Ziplock and ziplock that bag of grinds and filter together. Packs super nicely almost anywhere(e.g. empty Nalgene, pot set, pack toppocket, etc.). Maximum weight is only just more than the weight of the grounds, filter, rubber bands and the Ziploc baggies.
  • SETUP: Bring water to a boil and have your items out and prepared. Tie a tight, small knot on one end of the rubberband.
  • STEPS: Insert one filter into the other, wet them in your pot of water. Insert the filters into the bottle mouth head, bending or lining the edges of the filters over the outside lip of the bottle. Next, loosen the chock away from the far of the wire and wrap the wire loop around the bottle mouth and filters. The grade of the wire shouldn’t matter too much since the tension on it should be enough pressure to pinch and hold the filters to the bottle mouth. If uncertain, simply cinch the nut tighter to squeeze the filter tightly against the bottle. The thinner the wire, the better. Deposit coffee grounds, pour boiling water in and drip away. For more coffee, pour in more hot water…about three pours will fill one Sierra cup.

  • NOTE: Bring an extra rubber band or two just in case the first one busts. The extra knot on the rubberband makes pulling or removing the rubberband off the mouth of the bottle head much easier. Boiling hot water and nearly fresh coffee grounds is going to serve up the best cup of coffee. For a larger crew of drinkers, just deposit more grounds into the same old filter along with more hot water. To be more environmentally conscience, give the bottle top filter holder a couple extra uses before tossing it. This is a fantastic way to be more environmentally-conscience since no more than a few coffee filters is required and is also ultra-light since the only extra weight are the filters, grounds and water it takes to make the coffee.




    CCC-04: BOTTLE-DRIP

  • REQUIRED ITEMS: 500ml plastic water bottle, boiling hot water, empty Nalgene bottle, yesterday fresh coffee grinds, standard coffee filter, a few Ziplock bags to package grinds, filter, Sierra cup(optional), and a pocket knife.
  • PACKING: Package your grinds into a Ziplock and ziplock that bag of grinds and filter together. Packs super nicely almost anywhere(e.g. empty Nalgene, pot set, pack toppocket, etc.). Maximum weight is only just more than the weight of the grounds, filter, fold paper cup nicely in and Ziploc baggies.
  • SETUP: Take a plastic store-bought bottle of water, drink it or dump it into your burner to boil. Cut the top half of the bottle off with your pocket knife.
  • STEPS: Bring water to a boil. Unscrew cap of cut bottle and place the top half of the bottle upside down into the mouth of the Nalgene bottle. Insert or line the upside-down bottle top with a coffee filter. Deposit coffee grounds, pour boiling water in and drip away. For more coffee, pour in more hot water…about three pours will fill one Sierra cup.

  • NOTE: Boiling hot water and nearly fresh coffee grounds is going to serve up the best cup of coffee. For a larger crew of drinkers, just deposit more grounds into the same old filter along with more hot water. To be more environmentally conscience, give the bottle top filter holder a couple extra uses before tossing it. When finished, just take the other half of the bottle and compact the two half bottles back together– it packs up tight and compactly to make packing out easier, too. Be warned that the plastic will melt a bit, whether chemical come out or not is up to your discretion. This trick will also work with any old plastic bottle, too, of course!



    CCC-03: DRIP-CUP

  • REQUIRED ITEMS: paper cup, boiling hot water, empty Nalgene bottle, yesterday fresh coffee grinds, standard coffee filter, a few Ziplock bags to package grinds, filter, Sierra cup(optional), and a poker.
  • PACKING: Package your grinds into a Ziplock and ziplock that bag of grinds and filter together. Packs super nicely almost anywhere(e.g. empty Nalgene, pot set, pack toppocket, etc.). Maximum weight is only just more than the weight of the grounds, filter, fold paper cup nicely in and Ziploc baggies.
  • SETUP: Poke a small hole(about 4~6mm) into the bottom of the paper cup.
  • STEPS: Bring water to a boil. Poke small hole into bottom of paper cup. Insert and sit the paper cup into the Nalgene bottle’s mouth. Insert or line the paper cup with coffee filter. Deposit coffee grounds, pour boiling water in and drip away. For more coffee, pour in more hot water…about three pours will fill one Sierra cup.

  • NOTE: Boiling hot water and nearly fresh coffee grounds is going to serve up the best cup of coffee. For a larger crew of drinkers, just deposit more grounds into the same old filter along with more hot water. To be more environmentally conscience, give the paper cup a couple extra uses before tossing it, but don’t blame us if the bottom falls out and you’re left with bottle full of coffee grinds.


    CCC-02: DRIP-STICK

  • REQUIRED ITEMS: chopsticks, boiling hot water, empty Nalgene bottle, yesterday fresh coffee grinds, standard coffee filter, a few Ziplock bags to package grinds, filter, Sierra cup(optional) and hole puncher.
  • PACKING: Package your grinds into a Ziplock and ziplock that bag of grinds and filter together. Packs super nicely almost anywhere(e.g. empty Nalgene, pot set, pack toppocket, etc.). Maximum weight is only just more than the weight of the grounds, filter, chopstick and Ziploc baggies.
  • SETUP: Overlap or fold opposite sides of filter and punch hole through the overlapping folds with hole-puncher. Punching through the multiple folds will prevent the holes form tearing from the stress created by the weighted coffee grounds and water. Of course, punch the holes at home or at the office rather than packing the hole-puncher.
  • STEPS: Bring water to a boil. Insert the coffee filter into the Nalgene bottle’s mouth while lining up the holes in the folds and skewer the holes with a chopstick, placing chopstick flatly on bottle mouth. Deposit coffee grounds, pour boiling water in and drip away. For more coffee, pour in more hot water…about three pours will fill one Sierra cup.

  • NOTE: Boiling hot water and nearly fresh coffee grounds is going to serve up the best cup of coffee. For a larger crew of drinkers, just deposit more grounds into the same old filter along with more hot water. To save on weight or if you don’t have a chopstick, find a stick that will do the trick instead. To be more environmentally conscience, use metal chopsticks or a stick off the ground instead of contributing to the waste of wooden chopsticks and the trees disposed of to produce them. Using 2 filters together is more likely to prevent the bottom of the filter from collapsing out from under itself.



    CCC-01: DRIP-CLIP
    st-0501

  • REQUIRED ITEMS: plastic clip, boiling hot water, empty Nalgene bottle, yesterday fresh coffee grinds, standard coffee filter, a few Ziplock bags to package grinds and filter, Sierra cup(optional). The coffee filter clip must be at least longer in width than the mouth of the Nalgene bottle.
  • PACKING: Pre-package your grinds into a Ziplock and ziplock that bag of grinds, filter and clamping clipper altogether. Packs super nicely almost anywhere(e.g. empty Nalgene, pot set, pack toppocket, etc.). Maximum weight is only just more than the weight of the grounds, filter, clip and Ziploc baggies.
  • STEPS: Bring water to a boil. Insert the coffee filter into the Nalgene bottle’s mouth while making exactly only one fold vertically along the filter where necessary to more accurately fit and line the bottle mouth. Remove the filter from the mouth, neatly crease the fold, clip the clamp at the top of the filter exactly where the filter overlaps on itself. Re-insert filter into bottle mouth until the clamp stops it going down any further. Deposit coffee grounds, pour boiling water in and drip away. For more coffee, pour in more hot water…about three pours will fill one Sierra cup.

  • NOTE: Boiling hot water and nearly fresh coffee grounds is going to serve up the best cup of coffee. For a larger crew of drinkers, just deposit more grounds into the same old filter along with more hot water. The plastic clip is very vulnerable to cracking or breaking, so pack it carefully and thoughtfully. Using 2 filters together is more likely to prevent the bottom of the filter from collapsing out from under itself.
