RITUAL'S TRAVELING BREWER'S KIT FEATURED ON THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
posted on December 3rd 2012 at 12:56 by

For the past year or so, whether my trip was a one-night getaway in the Bay Area or a week-long sourcing trip to El Salvador, I haven't left home without my Aeropress and Porlex mini-mill.  This combo is a super-sleek traveling duo -- the Porlex fits inside the Aeropress -- that manages to deliver great coffee, even in challenging settings.  The Aeropress is a very forgiving brew method; I've made great cups in roadside convenience stores, moving vehicles, and on the farm at Finca Monte Rey.  

 

I'm thrilled that the Wall Street Journal also realizes what a great pair this is and is featuring us on their "Off Duty 50: Holiday Gifts," a list of gifts "geared toward 'off duty' pursuits, from entertaining to geeking out on gadgets."

 

Here's a link to our favorite Aeropress recipe.  And though it's a forgiving brew method, I leave as little to chance as possible, weighing both the coffee and the water with our compact Ritual Gram Scale.  This way I don't get just a passable cup of coffee, but one that is sublime, equal to whatever magnificent surroundings I might find myself in.  

 

Happy Brewing!
