Kuju Coffee Review – Final Update

Kuju Coffee Update


Kuju Coffee

A multi-day trip into Pisgah National Forest on the first weekend in fall was the perfect time to test out Kuju Coffee’s Pocket PourOver system. Coffee at breakfast and after dinner made the trip that much more enjoyable. Sounds like I enjoyed the coffee? Click here to read my final thoughts on Kuju Coffee.

Kuju Coffee Review – Initial Thoughts

Coffee. It’s a part of daily life and the cornerstone of many morning and evening routines. Coffee can also be a big part of the backcountry experience. Kuju Coffee brings some innovation to how coffee coffee can be made in the great outdoors. Check out my initial review of their Pocket PourOver by clicking here.

Alpine Aire Snacks Final Update

A backpacking trip into the Nantahala Wilderness in Western North Carolina allowed me to try out most of these Alpine Aire snacks on the trail.

Spicy Cheddar Bean dip on pita chip.

I was surprised with a few of the snacks – both in how they tasted and how easy/difficult they were to prepare in the backcountry. Click here to see my final update on the snacks, dips, and smoothie.

Alpine Aire Snacks, Dips, and Smoothies – Initial Review

Various snacks, smoothie, and dips.

Few things can change how a trip in the backcountry is remembered more than food. Insufficient quantity or poor quality can dull the thrill of bagging a summit or ruin the satisfaction of a hard earned day on the trail.

Over the next month, I will be testing out some backcountry food products from Alpine Aire.

B.Redi Salsa

Salsa is the essential topping for any corn chip and makes burritos and tacos taste even better, but until now there has not been a satisfying salsa option for ultralight backpackers.  B.Redi Foods hopes to change that with their new line of Salsa packets.  These Salsa packets only require the user to add hot water and stir for a delicious salsa.  I will be reviewing the B.Redi Salsa packets over the next few weeks.  Read on for my initial thoughts.

Not Just Another Bar

GFB - Gluten Free Bars

GFB – Gluten Free Bars

I’ve been checking out the GFB – Gluten Free Bar over the last month or so.  I’m impressed with the thought that has gone into these bars, and the taste.  The healthiest food in the world probably won’t get eaten if it doesn’t taste good.  Read about what I’ve found while eating them.  Check out my review HERE.
