All for a Cup of Joe on the Road

coffee-cup-morning

coffee-cup-morningI’m one of those people who can’t begin my day without grabbing my coffee maker from The CoffeeChannel, brewing my coffee, and drinking it. If you’re like me, then I’m sure you know that there is joy in sensing that coffee fragrance and indulging in a warm cup of coffee early in the morning, and even in the middle of the day!

But there are times when we travel, and we think there’s no way we could take coffee with us to save us in the middle of a busy day. This is why I researched, and good thing I found the best ways to have a cup of joe on the road!

Coffee lovers can now enjoy a cup of their favorite coffee while they travel—regardless of whether it’s travel with pleasure or for business.

THE ESSENTIALS

Depending on what you prefer, you may bring only one or two of these essentials. But of course, you can bring them all.

Vacuum-Sealed Bottle

After brewing your coffee or making your favorite espresso recipe drink, store your coffee in a vacuum-sealed bottle. Get a high-quality one for the job. Trust me, even if you drink it at 3:00 in the afternoon, it would still stay as hot and fresh as if it was brewed in the morning.

Blue Bottle Travel Kit

If you want an all-in-one coffee kit you can take when you travel, then get yourself the Blue Bottle Travel Kit. The package includes a bag of quality beans, a grinder, and a pour-over setup for two so you could drink coffee any time of the day with your favorite buddy. Or you could take all for yourself. This is the kit that will help you avoid that free yet entirely crappy hotel coffee. It won’t make you settle for less.

You could even add your favorite bag of coffee beans if the ones included aren’t enough for you. You can choose to bring your favorite roasted beans, be sure to store them in an airtight container so that the oils will be preserved and the taste won’t be affected.

If coffee beans are a bit difficult to bring, then grind them first, and store them in a plastic bag. This will also save the time for grinding. If you want to have a variety of choices, I suggest you take a light, medium, and dark roast with you.

Minipresso

If you’re a lover of espresso, then you have to get the Minipresso. This bottle can brew one shot of espresso wherever you are. Because let’s be honest, there are times when all we need is one shot.

Extras

You could add creamer, sugar, syrups, jellies, marshmallows, and whatever you wish to add! Sure, some hotels offer cream and sugar, but your favorite brand will still make a huge difference in the flavor and aroma of your coffee. It’s recommended to take along your preferred extras so that you won’t be disappointed.

It all boils down to how many things you’re willing to bring and how much time you have to prepare. In short, your coffee experience on the road will depend on how much you love coffee.
