The weather is finally warming up upstate where we are, and I can only imagine — or hope — it’s the same for you, wherever you are. And the best part of nice weather is being able to get outside and enjoy nature with long hikes or camping trips. But being outdoors doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your favorite hobby: coffee and espresso making.
Whole Latte Love has put together a collection of portable products and pre-ground coffees that will make brewing the perfect cup an easy feat, even without electricity or a plumbed up reservoir. Find out a bit more about each item below.
Dreamed up by a Stanford engineering instructor, the Aeropress optimizes simplicity while still brewing coffee or espresso with low acidity and bitterness. With the Aeropress, you are part of the entire brewing experience, and can control all sorts of variables by changing how much you stir the grounds, to how long you take to push down on the plunger, to create a cup personalized to your taste. The company has since come out with AeroPress Go, which carries its own mug as a carrying case.
The Espro P1 Travel Press is almost too perfect. It will strain, press, and hold up to 15mL of coffee in a vacuum insulated stainless steel thermos. French press coffee is a fan-favorite, with a hearty backing. But the typical glass vessel you immediately associate with this brew method isn’t exactly “throw in a backpack while we go camping” friendly. But this version, which comes in white, stainless steel, and black, means you can enjoy the slow patience of a press coffee under the glow of a rising sun.
This one’s pretty self explanatory: grab a thermos (many of which we have at Whole Latte Love, more on that later), a kettle, and either an Espro Bloom Pour Over Coffee Brewer or the EB Lab Dripper Cone and Stand. Pour over coffee is already an incredibly meditative process, what with the slow rhythmic pour of water over a blooming coffee bed. Combined with the outdoors, this setup is sure to be a favorite.

The AeroPress Go Coffee Maker gives coffee lovers everything they need for on the go brewing. This compact, durable and light-weight travel coffee maker brews American, espresso, and cold brew coffee to fuel an active lifestyle.
Listen, I know it sounds sacrilegious but standards change in the great outdoors. And you will be able to handle pre-ground coffee for at least a few days. Really. And we have some great options on our website. Some favorites come from Lavazza, of course: the Crema E Gusto Espresso, a special blend of Indian and Brazilian beans for a rich dark roast, and the Qualita Oro, which is a 100% Arabica medium roast blend. There is also the Lavazzo Dek, a decaffeinated 100% Arabica.

Whole Latte Love has our very own personalized Camelbak mug: the Whole Latte Love Horizon Camp Mug. Coming in white and black, the mug is double-walled and vacuum-insulated to retain cold drinks for six hours and hot drinks for four. If you’re not one for personalized objects but like the Horizon Camp mug, we offer other options in white, black, larkspur, and moss without the WLL logo.
Perhaps the most recognizable of all Camelbak products is the tried and true Camelbak Horizon Tumbler. So, of course, it’s included on this list. Here at WLL, we carry 12 oz, 16 oz, and 20 oz, in white, black, moss, terracotta rose, and larkspur. A double-walled, vacuum-insulated, stainless steel tumbler that you can count on to keep your drink hot for up to seven hours or cold up to fourteen.
The Camelbak MultiBev is the beverage multitasker you have been waiting for. The top is a 22 oz water bottle, the bottom a detachable 16 oz travel cup that is perfect for both solo and shared enjoyment — making it ideal for camping. Not to mention this bottle will keep beverages hot for sixteen hours and cold for 24. Pick your choice of moss, black, terracotta rose, and white.
So there you have it: our non-inclusive list of portable coffee and espresso making products. If your coffee habit is the one excuse you had for sticking indoors, we’re sorry to take that one away from you by making it so easy to brew a great cup no matter where you are.
