Bripe: Ultimate coffee maker for the great outdoors?

It might look like something from the set of Breaking Bad, but you’re looking at the Bripe; if not the best portable coffee maker in the world, definitely the most hipster-friendly.

The Bripe is a small, lightweight copper and silver pipe that makes coffee in the great outdoors.

You don’t need electricity, a gas stove, kettle or pot. The handmade Bripe requires only ground coffee and water -heat is courtesy of a small butane-powered quad jet torch that’s included in the kit.

Handmade for the coffee connoisseur

The folk behind the Bripe are as interesting as the concept itself. Tim Panek and Craig Hall run a coffee company called Equator Coffee Roasters. Before that, Tim had abandoned corporate America with his wife Linda and four children in favour of the jungles of Costa Rica and a life of adventure, entrepreneurship, and community service. The duo’s latest project is a hostel that will provide medical, training and cultural services on the Quitirrisi indigenous reserve in Costa Rica. When it’s complete, the hostel will sleep approximately 50 people and provide facilities for First Nations people who must come into the city, then often wait days to get into a public hospital.

The Bripe took shape after Tim and Craig decided they wanted to enjoy a great coffee shot while outside, but found that all of the existing coffee-making products were too complex, too bulky, and weighed too much to fit into a backpack or river kayak.

While the Bripe might look like a simple bit of kit, years of development have gone into  refining the design. We think it’s ideally suited to

    Useful to see the pipe ‘in action’ on the Bripe website. I would be the coolest aunt if I won this for my niece whose passions are ethical living, valuing and enjoying the natural environment, and respecting people. As ever, well-sourced by the super team at ETA – thanks!

    Oh yes. I can well imagine making a brew for the local plod when they’ve drug swiped me and had their sniffer dog sniffing my personal bits. It’d be so funny. I must have one!

    Hi

    Forget the bripe but I absolutely must have the flame thrower.

    I had so many dodgy close passes the other day I was going to design a flash that would activate automatically but I love the flame thrower.
