Hitting the great outdoors for the weekend, but can't bear the thought of going through a day without a hit of espresso to get your bearings started? Not a problem with the GSI Outdoors Mini Espresso Maker, a gourmet coffee maker made for your on-the-go proclivities.
Designed for stovetop use, the backpacking barista equipment can get you a streaming cup of creamy espresso in just 90 seconds. That's like instant coffee speed right there, all without the gnarly, cheap taste.
The GSI Outdoors Mini Espresso Maker measures a compact 4.13 x 3.13 x 5.63 inches and weighs 7.1 oz., allowing you to cram it in a bag for taking with you through your favorite outdoor endeavors. Constructed out of rugged aluminum, the rig should handily survive the regular bumps and bruises of the outdoors, aside from facilitating fast and even heating.
One 90-second round of stovetop cooking gets you 2.5 fl. oz. of espresso goodness, which makes for a generous double shot of strong, black java. That's an ultra-quick hit of gourmet coffee at practically a moment's notice -- making for an incredibly convenient way to get your morning buzz going.
Amazon has the single-shot GSI Outdoors Mini Espresso Maker, which comes with a lifetime warranty, available for just around $21.
