I almost never ride without a bag carrying something along with me. Sometimes light, and sometimes bulging.  I am no longer a minimalist cyclist.

Today's kit was even larger than normal.  My shopsack was packed full.

The Bialetti Moka Express was my brewer of choice, and the hammock came along for sipping in comfort. I didn't need to pack the lake breeze. It was there waiting for me when I arrived.

Happiness is a full ShopSack!  Also, I like how you've folded your mat and placed it under the bag.  Probably helps some with vibration, yes?

Chris, I love that last photo. For as much as I use my Moka at home, I've never taken it outside. No particular reason why, it just seems odd to have it anywhere but on the kitchen stove. I think I'll use it next time I make hashtag coffee outside.

Yes, I think so. I give a little thought (but it actually doesn't require much) to packing items in a way that doesn't rattle too much. Sometimes, with less other items, the mat goes inside, but it is pretty easy to simply fold it and leave out.

Thanks. My Soto Helix pour over is my most common outside brew up method because it is so light and compact. But I have a variety of coffee toys, and like to use them in rotation.
