    Anybody here have one of these yet? Was wondering what the thoughts were from someone that already has one. For being titanium they look like they are worth the dough. For those not familiar at all with them here's a picture credit goes to @Waldeinsamkeit Woodcraft

    Wow, a ti mors pot. Nice. Too bad about the built in French press component. (unless of course one intends to use it for that purpose specifically...)

    Pretty sure that the press part can be taken off of the lid if need be.

    I think that's a pretty cool idea. :)

    I always figured that was a pretty safe bet when I see someone buy a coffee maker....

    Thanks for sharing, hadn't heard of these previously.

    Did some looking and not only can this work as camp cookware but you can use it as a press and drink straight from it, and it comes with a commuter lid as well as the Ti lid .

    Neat stuff

    Only $65.00 too. I don't think that is too bad of pricing for that.

    Really surprised more on here don’t have one by now I think they’ve been out awhile. But yea getting the plastic drinking lid is a nice bonus saves from having to carry another pot\cup.

    It works great if you brew your coffee in a plain pot, then sprinkle a dash of cold water from your fingers in to settle the grounds to the bottom. You can also go full-cowboy and centrifuge the grounds out by swinging the pot of hot coffee in a loop (perpendicular to the ground)... that'll impress your friends. Just don't panic and stop with the pot above your head:) Both methods are much cheaper than a titanium coffee press....

    Was all about it until I saw it was only a 750ml, a 1100 ish in that configuration would have been a buy it time now.

    Seems like something the outfitters store should consider carrying.

    Really wishing they made in the 1Lish range. I ordered one anyway as i was in the market for a 750 size with a bail... and i love french press coffee.

    As much as i love coffee though I don’t know if i can justify 9oz or so for a grinder to come along on long trips

    You could grind enough at home and still enjoy some freshly brewed coffee in the outdoors. Ive spent a lot of time and money trying instant coffee. I’m coming back to full circle and considering brewed coffee on the trail wether it be a msr mugmate or French/ aero press. Instant just isn’t good lol.

    Since I don't have one I couldn't tell you, maybe someone else can but here's the dimensions taken off the website.

    Dimensions:

    Internal Diameter- 3 3/4"

    Outer Diameter- 4 1/2" (to bale ends)

    Hight-4 1/4" (cup only)

    Hight-5" (to top of knob)

    That looks like Good Pot Bruh. 2qt version without the coffee press and a standard lid please. Ti Mors pot for the win.

    Nothing, other than it doesn’t yield the same result. There are lots of coffee and tea methods, its all rather subjective and personal preference on what method one prefers.

    As the swinging around your head is impressive I consider it THE best way of making coffee when around friends but, when alone, just stir it and wait a minute or two. The grounds settle on there own. No need for the cold water treatment.

    I should look at one of these. I broke and repaired my french press plunger and the back up this week. Probably the 3rd or 4th time I've had to repair them.

    I'll add my vote to a bigger version. I get that this is intended as something of drinking size, but a true Ti Mors Pot would kick most of the rest of my cook kit to the curb.

    Try giving Voila (brand) a try. They are relatively new and the best instant I have found yet. Gives a lot of brews a run...

    Thanks I’ll look for that. Alpine start isn’t bad and now available on Amazon too.

    ETA
    Ouch. That better be good stuff lol. Over $3/cup for instant. I drink way too much coffee to spend that on a cup. Thank you for looking out though.

    They are quite expensive. Much better than Alpine, though. What I do is blend them with Mount Hagen instant (my second favorite) to stretch the cost. lol I'm hoping if they get enough interest they can bring the cost down.

    I think @n8mayfield has one of these... maybe he can shoot some words of wisdom on this product.

    I would hope the same about cost but according to their instagram post a few days ago they are actually going up. The post states after May 30th the plastic lid will be sold separate. Hopefully the cost of the lid will come off the press but we will see.

    Just my two cents but I think it's a waste of money. French press coffee isn't significantly different than other methods that don't require a dedicated pot. Also, if using the press as a standard pot by taking the the press part off, it's a compromised vessel compared to a good pot with lid. Like I said, just my two cents.

    I've been using mine a lot lately and the more I use it the more I like it. I've always wanted a titanium cup so the fact that this thing came with a removable french press was very cool. It's takes a lot of experimenting to make perfect coffee because it's small. Great for backpacking

    I'm quite sure the Toaks 95mm lid would fit this cup. So for a few bucks and a 1/2 ounce extra it could easily be a dual use item.

    I have one. Not bad. Don’t really use the press. Wish the bale was removable

I took that large stainless nut off the top that connects to the press. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought wooden jewelry drawer pulls for the lid handle. So the lid is separate from the pot and press. Next I cut the shaft of the press down because with coffee under the screen, the stem was too long to use the plastic sip lid. And with the stainless nut connected to the lid and the press stem it didn’t come close enough to the bottom to get a good press. So those were the problems I saw with it and the fixes were simple and cheap. Cheers everyone

    Still, besides my billy pot it’s the most versatile cooking vessel I own. Because of that versatility it worth the money to me

    Nice mods. I made a “knob” from some stainless steel wire and a ferrule works well. A buddy is borrowing my pot to try it. I’ll get pics when I can

    After looking at your post again that would be kind of a design flaw then if you cant use the lid. If one didn't want to cut the stem could you still a hole in the lid? I'm waiting for mine to come they are slow at shipping orders.
