A good quality thermos is a true lifesaver for coffee lovers on the move. Whether you're hiking, trekking, or camping under the stars, having access to hot water is crucial for brewing a high-quality coffee experience. Look for insulated, leak-proof design thermos flasks that won't weigh you down but will keep your brewing options wide open, like the Milton Aura 1000 Thermosteel Bottle. We also suggest researching reputable brands known for producing high-quality thermoses with reliable performance and customer satisfaction because a thermos is a friend for a long time! If you’re looking for a more versatile option, you can always opt for a flask with temperature control options that work perfectly as a hybrid between a thermos and an electric kettle, such as the Instacuppa Electric Water Bottle. In case you have your heating options sorted and are just looking for a kettle to brew, a handy gooseneck kettle is perfect for pour-overs on the go!

3. AeroPress: Your Compact Brewing Companion

A dedicated travel tumbler is essential for keeping your coffee hot and your adventure uninterrupted. Opt for an insulated, spill-proof option that can withstand the bumps and jostles of travel. With a reliable coffee tumbler by your side, you can keep your coffee warm for longer and make sure you have a high-quality coffee experience while taking in the sights around you. We are obviously fans of the viral Stanley Quencer and love all the tumblers from Fellow, but the Borosil Coffeemate is a great contender, too!

5. Portable Digital Weighing Scale: For the extra perfection!

We have listed down the most important must-haves for speciality coffee on the go, but one thing most people don’t understand is the importance of a proper carrier to store all their equipment. Trust us; it's a recent discovery of coffee for us as well! Each item is integral to making your speciality coffee and comes with a responsibility to be taken care of We’d like to think of it as a valuable addition to coffee sustainability because you do not have to keep buying these essentials if they’re all safe and sound! A good carrier also ensures everything is easily moveable and is in one place and ready for you to brew a good cup of specialty coffee! Having said that, we suggest your carriers of choice be sturdy, water resistant and something that fits your personality! Our personal favourite is this Stanley Lunch Box, and we are sure you’re going to find one that best works for you!
