For true coffee lovers, enjoying a well-crafted cup isn’t just a luxury, it’s a daily necessity. Exploring new places near and far sometimes leads us to enlightening coffee discoveries by way of small-town roasters but, more often than not, it results in stale gas station java and chain store cappuccinos. Luckily, the coffee-obsessed crew at San Francisco-based Blue Bottle Coffee teamed up with their neighbors at Timbuk2 for a portable brew kit that lives up to the attention to detail and craftsmanship both brands have become renowned for. The Travel Kit was born out of both a mutual respect for one another’s craft and also a desire to make the perfect cup—even on the road, with ease and convenience. A stainless steel Porlex adjustable burr grinder ensures you’ll get the most out of the prized Blue Bottle beans while a compact travel dripper allows for a precise pour-over. Compostable filters and two enamelware tumblers (with felt heat koozies) all fit securely in the purpose-built waxed canvas Timbuk2 bag. All you’ll need is hot water.
Pick up the Timbuk2 + Blue Bottle Coffee Travel Kit for $179 online and from select Blue Bottle and Timbuk2 stores.
