110 views in a little over 2.5 hours suggests there is definitley a market for it.
I won't be running out to get one just yet. I've been caught out too many times chasing "the lastest and greatest".
But I'll be avidly watching the forum to see if someone posts a real life evaluation.

Just received an email ad for Kogan and they also have one.
On special at the moment for $150 delivered.
It looks to work on the Nespresso style capsules.

I don't get it either. We're not talking about a fine wine or a good Scotch, it's bloody coffee :-)

Luckily I drink tea. 5 minutes and its done. No "stuff" to clean. No need to refridgerate tea leaves either.

But I can't knock them for getting what they like. We all fill our cars with "junk" don't we.

Why not just use a jetboil. I take fresh beans with me on all camping trips and grind them each time. and use the inbuit charger of fresh ground plunger in a very short time.

easier then another 12v waste of power

"easier than ..."
Disagree
maybe better tasting but nothing is easier than the capsule machines.
Have the Nespresso at home, as good as it gets

Well that is strange because I drink coffee for taste not convenience.
Must be my taste buds are strange in that way

Freshly ground beans into a french press for me. I definitely drink coffee for taste not convenience.

We have the same. A pleasure to use as well due to the quality of design and construction.

I buy ESE pods from a roaster in Sydney.

$2 battery powered milk wizzer for acceptably textured milk.

My $40 camping coffee preference is the Aeropress.

Cheap, simple and tough.

And another vote for the Aeropress. As aboutfivebucks says, simple, strong cheap. Also fast and easy to clean. A small light package to carry. But for flavour, right up there with the very best from the flashest of machines.
Interesting concept and design. One more from the bloke who invented the longdistance frisbee.
We took ours camping through the Kimberlies recently and it attracted lots of attention and followed by approval as we gave out demo cups.

Whatever happened to the boiled billy and a handful of tea-leaves?
That was real camping!
Save the espresso as a treat when you head home.
But Coffee Club at Dalby is not bad if you really must.
Actually, one of the best cappuccinos I ever had anywhere was at Balladonia Roadhouse.

At risk of stating the bleeding obvious, that has stuff-all to do with coffee!

Geeze Allan you must have got them on a good day or me a bad one. Hell the stuff they tried to call coffee the day we stopped there I could have used to fill a pot hole in the road it was that bad and only second to the service we got. LOL

Well, it was 3 years ago Duncan. Maybe things have changed.
At least, I think it was Balladonia.
