BruTrek releases new collapsible pour over coffee maker for outdoors
BruTrek, the maker of innovative, durable coffee gear and drinkware for the outdoors, has released its new, lightweight Collapsible Pour Over coffee maker. With the Collapsible Pour Over, outdoor enthusiasts can more easily brew their favourite coffee everywhere from the backyard to the backcountry. Additionally, BruTrek has collaborated with CoffeeSock on reusable organic cotton filters specifically designed for the Collapsible Pour Over to eliminate the single-use waste of paper filters. The BruTrek Collapsible Pour Over and two CoffeeSock filters are available together for $45 at http://brutrek.com/.
“Our new Collapsible Pour Over is the perfect drip coffee maker for all of your adventures outdoors,” said Jess Nepstad, CEO of Planetary Design, LLC, parent company of the BruTrek brand. “This method of brewing highlights the finer qualities of your favorite coffee, allowing the flavor and aroma to shine. And with the Collapsible Pour Over’s compact, lightweight design, you can enjoy a cup just about anywhere you go.”
The stainless steel Collapsible Pour Over features a compact design to pack flat in the included waxed canvas pouch. With the pouch and one CoffeeSock filter, it’s a lightweight 6.5 ounces and measures 7 inches by 7.5 inches by 0.5 inch, easily fitting into a backpack, bike pannier, glovebox or camper van kitchen.
To brew coffee, unfold the Collapsible Pour Over, place a filter into it and set it on top of a mug. Add medium-fine ground coffee to the filter, about 2 tablespoons for every 12 ounces of water. Heat water to 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit, pour just enough to wet the grounds and let bloom for 45 seconds. Slowly pour the remaining water in a circular motion, wait 3 to 4 minutes and serve.
In an effort to promote sustainability and reduce the single-use waste of paper coffee filters, BruTrek collaborated with CoffeeSock to design reusable organic cotton filters for the Collapsible Pour Over. Two CoffeeSock filters last about one year and replace approximately 500 paper filters. To reuse a filter, discard or compost the grounds, rinse the filter until water runs clear, wring out and hang dry.
The BruTrek Collapsible Pour Over and two CoffeeSock filters are available together for an MSRP of $45 at https://planetarydesign.com/product/collapsible-pour-over/.
