I have a JetBoil with the french press attachment. Very slick having a water boiler and a french press in one.

As an engineer, I appreciate good engineering. The JetBoil java kit is very impressive in that regard. The new lid has a hole in it for the shaft. The shaft breaks down into two pieces that fits in the mug beside the stove. The strainer fits into the bottom cover. Pretty cool.

Too bad french presses (or are they still "freedom presses wink ") can be somewhat messy to clean up.

Actually, it's funny you say that, but, when I was on a trip white water rafting on the Penobscott River a few years back in Maine, the guide made what he called "River Coffee" in the morning. They just had a pot of boiling water, with coffee grinds thrown in. After it boiled for a bit, he let it sit for a minute off the fire. The grinds settle to the bottom, and then he cracks a raw egg into it! crazy

The egg mixes with the grinds on the bottom of the pot, cooks/congeals, and then you can pour off the coffee without getting many grinds. It's STRONG, but, that's what you need to wake up before you hit the class V rapids.

For camping I use a perculator, try to slip in a filter to ease the cleanup. I've used and like the filter press cups, but they are messy to cleanup but simple.
For kits I've used coffee bags from Folgers ...but will have to quiz my friends in Oz about the Timms products, they sound nice.
For E-kits, my choices revolve around cleanup ... and loose grounds is a pain in my mind...though it makes better coffee.
Am intriqued by the java juice extract product. Will be gettin' some of that and trying it out.
Small, compact and easily cleaned up is high on my list for E-kit use and packing light and so higher cost for less used isn't really a problem either. Car camping, with space and weight being a non-issue, mostly, I can use the same stuff as at home and manage the invested cost easily.

OK, all of you, I've just ordered a stainless coffee press from Thermos for camping and road trips and such. You've given me new hope for feeding my caffeine addiction when away from home.
