Every journey requires a break, or does it not? This journey as outlined in https://trailblazer.co.za/coffee-journeying/ is a break in itself, in two ways: firstly, as a reader of this, take a break and view this coffee journey, part 2; and secondly, there’s a ‘break’ in a new development that this journey promised in the last Tale, namely, three improvements required in that quest for that perfect cup on the trails…
As a reminder, the three areas of improvement required were the cup, the carrier bag, and the frother. The journey results in this Tale…
This mug is great because it:
- Keeps coffee at the desired temperature for a long period of time (doesn’t lose heat easily because of its double wall structure)
- Has a lid which fits and assists in this heat retention
- Does not burn ones hands or lips when holding or drinking from it respectively due to the double wall thickness
- An AeroPress fits perfectly when extracting
- Super strong
- Extremely light
- Compact and small to fit in one’s bag snugly (comes with a small pouch)
The Carrier Bag:
This bag is great because it is basically the only bag that I could find that stores all of the required equipment in this Tale and the previous one above together compactly enough (naturally, made for the AeroPress by AeroPress – go figure!). It was so important for the upcoming Sojourn that I had to import it as it is not available in South Africa.
This added perk really is just that – a compact, semi-lightweight bliss for cappuccinos! With an easily detachable whisk, and being small enough to fit in the bag, this frother takes two AA batteries and whips up a seriously milky storm!
This is making me needy, needy for that cup of coffee…now where is it? Oh, of course, I have to make it – take a much needed break, to journeying in making my perfect cup on the trails!
