Good Coffee Is a Right

Not a privilege.

By The Editors

The debate over where to find the best cup of joe in this town is a hot one.

But it’s a stone fact it won’t be your next hotel room.

Unless, of course, you bring the joe with you.

Now brewing wake-up calls for the jetsetting man: Blue Bottle and Timbuk2, care of their Travel Coffee Kit, now available for order.


It’s basically a dopp kit for your morning cup.

Toss it in your suitcase and you’re set with the perfect pour-over no matter where you hang your hat for the night.

Hand grinder, dripper, filters, snazzy enamelware mugs and, of course, beans — it’s all in the bag.

Plus the bag itself is a looker, with a billiards-esque felt interior and leather accents.

Only thing missing is hot water — the one thing your in-room coffee machine can’t screw up.
