If you can’t stand the thought of a few nights in the wild without a good coffee, the Handpresso portable espresso maker is for you. Completely human-powered, all you need are some boiling water and a couple of pre-filled coffee pods. Fill it with boiling water, and pump it up like a bike pump to your preferred pressure. I couldn’t get it to produce a decent crema, but the taste was perfectly acceptable for coffee in the wilds.
The MSR Reactor comes in a compact package fitting everything inside a single pot. The stove burns incredibly hot, but the radiant burner design means most of that heat goes into your pot, where other stoves will be blowing in the wind. The result is blisteringly fast boiling water, which also means you need to carry a whole lot less fuel. The Reactor can boil 22 litres of water where other stoves will burn through their fuel boiling 10.
Joby have been making their Gorillapod camera tripod for a few years, and now they’ve turned to torches. The super-flexible legs allow you to stand it up anywhere, or wrap it around a branch or tent pole for area illumination. The Gorillatorch is equally at home in your camping kit or under the bonnet of your car: the magnetic feet are perfect for mounting it anywhere on the car while you work.
