Cafellissimo Paperless Pour Over Coffee Maker
- Material: 18/8 Stainless Steel
- Dimensions: 5.2″ x 4.5″x 3.4″
- Weight: 5.6oz
- Easy to Clean
The is probably the least ideal pour over on the list for backpacking, because it doesn’t collapse or fold down, but it makes such a great cup of coffee that we had to include it. If it is just tossed in a backpack it has a tenancy to get bent, so you may want to keep the box it ships in. If you are just driving to campsite than the Cafellissimo Pour Over is a great option, because it takes up less room than a french press and makes a better cup of coffee if it is used correctly.
