Of all the camping coffee makers in this review, the GSI Outdoors Collapsible Java Drip is the one with the most camping-specific features such as a broad base that can fit over pots or wide-mouthed mugs and a collapsible cone that can pack into tighter spaces. Despite its packability, it's still heavier than some other options at 4.76 ounces. But if a few extra ounces don't bother you, this is a great option. There's a convenient storage cover for clean packing that also doubles as a trivet for the brewer, so it doesn't get dirty while you get caffeinated.
For the genuinely picky coffee connoisseur, be warned that the Java Drip did not deliver our favorite flavor — though it wasn't bad. For the very best taste, look to our Top Pick for Gourmet Taste, the Aerobie AeroPress or one of our Editors' Choice winners, the iconic Hario V60 and the eco-friendly Cafellissimo Paperless Pour Over.
GSI Outdoors changed up the color scheme on the Collapsible Java Drip. The blue color, seen in the photo above, replaces the former red color in some of our photos. The manufacturer confirmed with us that other than the color, all other aspects of this coffee maker remain the same as of fall 2018.
