This was originally purchased to solve how to solve the "what is a light weight way to make GOOD coffee while backing" problem. I tried many things from taking the tea bag style single coffee bags to actually taking a lexan french press and even cowboy coffee. I like good strong coffee but I am not a huge fan of 3 dimensional coffee which is what I get with cowboy coffee. This cup/press solves everything and it is multi purpose and light weight. I now use it at home a lot also and at work. Hot water is pretty easy to come by in most places. All I need is a sample of my favorite coffee around. At home, it is the easiest way to make one cup of coffee. Just scoop in my coffee, dump in my hot water and take the cup with me. Wait a couple of minutes and start drinking. It is really great when leaving the house. Since I am a bit of a coffee snob, I never have to drink just whatever people have around or what they like. All I need is hot water. When backpacking, I actually store a zip-lock bag with my coffee inside of the cup to save space. This cup is the only cup I take in my pack, i.e., no extra drinking cup. I drink water from my Nalgene or bladder. If I need a cup I use this one. On cold mornings this makes an insulated "bowl" for hot cereal before my cup of hot coffee. The handle is strong. I have hit the trail with coffee in hand and just clipped in on the outside of pack when empty. It has never cracked or broken. Also, since this is a french press, clean up is easy. A couple of ounces of water, a couple of swishes around and spread out result. No garbage to pack out and no impact to the environment. The best of both worlds. Did I say I loved this cup?

I bought this product because I was too cheap to buy the higher priced stainless steel Bodum travel press. The Big Sky is adequate but there are a few things that made me look for a better alternative: 1)There is no closure on the spout, so heat tends to dissipate quickly from the lid, and if it's full and sitting in the cupholder of your car, it's prone to spills; 2)The plastic it's made of is pretty cheap and the coffee tends to have a slight plastic taste if drunk directly from the travel press; 3)It's not dishwasher safe, which was not specified in the item description. I found out when I read the instructions that came with it in the mail. This is a deal-breaker for someone who hates washing dishes, yet drinks coffee everyday. I'm much happier with the Bodum plastic double-walled travel press, which is cheaper than the Big Sky ($10) and is a higher quality product. It addresses all of the above concerns without a big price tag.

I'm nothing without a cup of coffee in the morning. For that matter, some days it's two or three to get me by based on my energy levels. Caffeine just seems to fit into my regular daily pattern of requirements. Hey, everyone's got a vice right?

The quest for a perfect cup of coffee on the trail, or while bicycle touring is a pretty important deal for me. Paying upwards of $3 or more for a cup at a retail store does have its benefits (free wi-fi access, ability to strike up conversations to other customers) but when traveling on a budget, it's best to do it yourself.

After a few failed attempts and products I stumbled on the Big Sky Bistro in hopes of finding the elusive best cup of coffee. It's an all in one approach to the classic coffee mug that has a press integrated to cut down on additional components required to get that fix. At 205 grams, its fairly lightweight and has a capacity of holding 16oz / 470ml of liquids.

Operation of the device is simple. Remove the Cap/Press Device, and put a scoop of coffee in the bottom, and fill the unit with hot water. Next replace the lid and press the handle down a small amount to allow the coffee to steep for a few minutes. Finally, depress the plunger knob all the way to the bottom and you are ready to enjoy your coffee. Couldn't get any easier.

There is a small sip hole, and I didn't notice any issues with the plunger knob hitting my face while drinking. The is big enough for your hands to fit through even wearing gloves, however it is so thick I'm unable to get a standard Biner or Clip to attach to it, which limits my portability options. It also is too big to fit in any car holder for those of you wanting to use it on the office.

My first one was from 2008, I loved it so much I searched until I found it again (mine had a different logo from a coffee shop). After trying others, I won't buy any other french press. This one has worked perfect and outperformed all the metal fancy ones that I've tried. I think the $20 price on this is worth it. I've taken mine through the mountains, through college, and through my ADD reckless life and I still have it. I've only hand washed mine, evidently that is what you are supposed to do. I've pretty much just rinsed it out with water and let it be, haven't had a problem yet.

PROS: filters better than the rest, holds heat better than most, lightweight, perfect for camping/hiking, and makes the best cup of coffee I've had from a french press.

CONS: it isn't sexy (but I married her for her personality), it might break because it isn't made to be unbreakable (I'd still buy another one to replace).

This is one product that I truly love and recommend to everyone. If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask.

Also, if anyone has used a french press that is better than this one please let me know. I'll do that Pepsi challenge and update this review.
