I used to travel with the Aeropress until I got the Clever Coffee Dripper. Much less fiddly than the Aeropress. I use a Bodum Ibis kettle (but as Steven pointed out they don't seem to make that size anymore). And a Hario grinder. I find it takes me about as much time to grind the beans as it does for the water to get hot so it all works out.
I tried an immersion heater for the water, but it was far too slow.

I brought the press, the scoop, the funnel, a whirly bird grinder, a frothing pitcher, a immersion water heater and a pound of Kona. After 4 cups I am learning to love this thing. The funnel is a waste. The pitcher is great for heating water with the immersion heater. I am using the scoop handle as a stirrer. The Kona has been a good coffee to dial in the press because it is so forgiving. I wish I could find a smaller grinder and a 2 cup electric tea kettle would make this setup perfect. I have the small Harco grinder but have found it to be a PITA to use. I may be re energized to pull it back out and work with it again. I have some Tom Bhin mesh packing bags I use in my suitcase and all of the coffee stuff fit nicely into one bag. And if the ziplock with the coffee beans pops the !

But if I could combine these 2 into one it may be more convenient. Also, if anyone has any tips on the Harco grinder I would love to hear the comments. Thanks in advance.
