Looking like the fetish apparatus of a drug user, New York Times' Oliver Strand showcases his portable coffee kit that ensures he will have great coffee anywhere he goes -- as long as he can heat up water.
My travel coffee kit consists of: an AeroPress coffee maker with nylon zipper bag, Porlex "Mini" grinder, American Weigh one-kilogram capacity pocket scale, Able Brewing stainless steel Disk filter.
The kit is compact (it's smaller than a pair of Vans), light (it weighs less than a pair of Vans) and durable (although maybe not as indestructible as a pair of Vans). Crucially, it won't get you pulled aside at airport security -- according to TSA regulations, you're allowed tools under seven inches in length in your carry-on -- although you might need to explain why you're traveling with a pocket digital scale accurate up to 1/10 of a gram.
