The credit for finding the Mukka Express goes to someone I met on one of Tom's Badlands trips. For years I had been using a cheap stove top espresso maker for camping. It made one cup of very strong coffee and I was happy although I prefer a cappuccino or latte since they are less harsh. I thought the Mukka Express was really cool the first time I saw it. I wasn't in a hurry to find one but one day happened to be in a Crate and Barrel and saw one there. It's been my favorite camping coffee maker ever since.

It fits well into the concept of overlanding - going to out of the way places in style and comfort.
Well Bruce I wanted to say thanks but you beat me to the punch. You too Sean for starting the thread.

I wrote a long story about how I ended up buying this Mukka from a very attractive Italian girl who races road bikes and is seeking her PHD in bio-mechanics at UCI. She listed it on Craigslist a long time ago and never sold it. Anyways we had a long chat about Italy, cycling and cappuchinos and I went on my merry way before I could get into any trouble. Did I say she loved my FJ , camping and such? As I was saying I went on my merry way....LOL I stlll have not learned my lesson on these forums and the whole story suddemly disappeared when I touched some random key . Sh@t. Anyway that's my acquisition srory.

I'm sipping on a Cap right now as I hit send and loving the newest addition to the family camping gear.

Take care.

Some people may turn their noses up at this... but I'm all about the instant Nescafe Tasters Choice French Roast. I put some in a ziplock baggy and toss some Half n' Half on ice. I know I know... INSTANT! I started using this stuff a few years ago since making a full pot of Cafe Vernona was a waste during the week, and pressing takes too long before work. At that time I was still pressing on the weekends... now I drink this stuff all week. To me, it even beats out that Starbucks Via stuff. This Nescafe is on a level all it's own in the world of instant coffee. It's a lot cleaner than using the Jet Boil press too, which I have used a lot in the past too. All I can say is, don't knock it till ya try it.
