Interested till I saw the two crappy color choices...black and red or red and black...yuck!
Ordered the "Infinite Coffee" clone from Amazon last year. Initially it worked okay (grinding more than a single serving really sucks, it's not pleasant), but over time the grind size adjustor became rusted and wasn't able to adjust any longer. The basket ends up clogging a lot of the time unless the grind is perfect and consistent. There's no way to know where your grind size is from the adjustor either. Too loose (coarse grind) and the whole top can pop off. I threw it in the trash the other day.
Ok this is cool but why? First does this mean you are also carrying a bag of unground beans? So you can have more coffee rather then just carry a cup the same size as this with out the junk. Second where will you get the hot water? If you go into almost any break room there is already a coffee machine and you have to go out of your way to get hot water which means you will most likely pass a coffee machine. So unless you plan on taking this camping, which there is plenty of better options for camp coffee then this, this thing seems pointless in any urban environment. Imho

I’ve seen microwaves in numerous break rooms throughout my career. Hot water isn’t that rare to come by🤷🏾‍♂️.
somedumbshopper
Yes that's what I was getting at most break rooms also have a coffee machine with it
can I adjust the grind size on the hand grinder???
I love this thing. I use mine everyday at work and I get a great cup of dark roasted ethiopian coffee. no sugar, no cream ... a superb cup 2 minutes after hand grinding the beans. Good build quality, made in S. Korea.
Bought one of those here in September '17. For what it's worth, you get fresh coffee and the option to experiment with coffee beans. Two things I think are worth mentioning: 1. The grinding isn't as a gentle process as one might imagine, and can be a workout if you're making a double cup (30 grams). 2. Drip coffee by nature is not as strong as either black or espresso, and I had some friends calling it Americano. If you're after a strong bitter kick, this might not be for you.

First of all, I love the way you phrased Starbucks’ roasting methods: it’s ssso true! But I did want to add to your last comment though... Your brewing method CAN add to bitterness if your brew is left in contact for too long with the grounds, which is a possibility with french press methods in three ways: either leaving too much time before pressing after you have added the water; having water that is too hot (over 200^F); or prolonged time in the press in contact with the grounds (after pressing). Plus I’m sure that Starbuck’s has some kind of super-secret method of adding bitterness just for the Hell of it!! (And peer pressure keeps us from complaining... “If it’s ‘too bitter’, Sir, you must not know much about coffee...”, says the barista with a faint sneer, as he dips the piece of charcoal into the next customer’s Benti-Venti double-nasty scorchio di Latté...) ;)

The brew method can add some bitterness, which is why I didn't say it adds none, but it's usually just the beans. Starbucks has very good reasons for making their coffee "bitter" by roasting the shit out of it.
1.) They add a ton of sugar and cream to most of their drinks. Only dark roasts can hold up to that abuse and still taste like coffee. 2.) They don't buy the highest quality beans. Other companies (like McDonald's), will often buy higher quality beans because they roast their beans lighter. As you go from light roast to dark roast, you're tasting less of the original flavor and more of the "roast" itself. Source: Coffee farmer / coffee broker 3.) They need their coffees to have the same flavor profile across the globe. You can have 3 different coffee beans, but the darker you go the more they taste the same.
There are probably other reasons, but I'm sure these are true.
Any news on a second variation?
Bought one in the last drop. Very well built and makes a decent cup of coffee. I thought it was well worth the money.
ge.generation
price?
there should be a coffee community on massdrop.

No, there shouldn't. My wallet can only take so much :D
To be fair, that other brand is Infinite Coffee. Although both looks and works exactly the same. Most likely people would consider the one that is half the price. But Infinite Coffee is not on MD, is it?
As "Lamorch" noted, you can purchase a better reviewed and almost identical coffee maker on Amazon for under $29. And that's WITHOUT using "Prime." What gives MD??? A $30 difference is 50% off MD!!! SAD!!

Yup that's what I've done it's great, works a treat and I'm going to take it with me when I travel :)

The one on Amazon for less is a different brand. This same brand on Amazon is 89.99.
Anyone have any shipping issues in Canada, it's been over 3 weeks from the time they said it will arrive! I am in Vancouver.
Same thing on Amazon for $28.97 with 4.5 stars compared to Cafflano Classic's rating of 3.5 stars. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HB068TS/ref=psdc_14092841_t1_B00WUG6IT4

Thanks for the heads up !

The identical Cafflano Classic is $93 on Amazon.
I ordered this the first time around. It's all comes together quite well and makes a decent cup of coffee. I'd take it to work or car camping but not backpacking, well, not if I'm going more than a couple of miles. Build quality is good.
I bought this at a coffee convention. The owner showed me how it worked and I was immediately sold. I primarily use this for hotels, since their coffee is always garbage. Worth the 60 bucks if you travel to hotels a lot!
Are they shipping to Canada ?

My wife bought me one of these (https://www.eightouncecoffee.ca/index.cfm/product/413_111/espro-travel-coffee-press.cfm) and it's very handy. If I want to grind my own beans on the go, I bring my travel grinder (https://www.eightouncecoffee.ca/index.cfm/product/80_35/porlex-mini-hand-grinder---new-design.cfm)
It's a pricier option to what's here, but it's all solidly built and works great!
I backed this one on Kickstarter and I love it! It's great if you work in an office that has hot water but no decent coffee options...
Cost USD 89 direct from Cafflano With free shipping. How is the MSRP 129.99?
Parpar
Because 129.99 sounds so much better! That said 59.99 is a good price if it costs 89 everywhere else. Whether it's WORTH 60 bucks is another question. Looks interesting but I'm not a coffee drinker (more of an espresso/latte kinda guy).
Im a little confused. Can this store the water you use in it while traveling or would you need a source of hot water when you make it?
LunaRose
You'll need a source of hot water. You can store water but its not a proper insulated water bottle, it is insulated in that it won't burn your hands when you have hot water but not as a storage to keep hot water for prolonged periods.
Seen it and tasted its output in person. Build quality is good. If I recall it is a Korean startup. Anyway, I drink V60 or Kalita Wave which require medium fine grind settings. The burr grinder on this all in one is built nice but the grind is not good (and consistent). Pretty coarse even at the first grinding notch. The taste of it is okay, but closer to French press so if you like French Press will be fine; otherwise, I would pass.

Finally, a quality comment. Thank you for the informative post! I've been wondering about the quality of coffee it makes.
This looks like a good camping/travel set. Good price on this brand compared to Amazon, but there is one on there for much cheaper that looks almost identical to this (made in China) -- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HB068TS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fO76ybWTWFJ57
Curious if anyone has any experience with that one...
MAF_24
Looks to me like the only difference is in the grinder. The "Cafflano" has a metal dial on the grinder (I assume for grind coarseness) and a metal top nut vs plastic dial on the one on Amazon. The arm also flips up and over for storage where the model on Amazon sides around.
Assuming the cheaper model on Amazon is "ok" and uses the same burrs... then this model here is WAY overpriced.
MAF_24
Does anyone know where this Cafflano Klassic set is made? Is this also made in China?
TSA friendly?
alcamp99
I travel with an AeroPress and a slimline JavaPresse or Kyocera Ceramic grinder all the time and have never had a problem.
What kind of burrs are the grinder using?
Tyreal77066
According to the Cafflano website "foldaway conical burr ceramic hand-mill" http://cafflano.com/product_klassic.php?TM=2
What is the brewed volume?
country of manufacture?
I love this all-in-one design!
How much does this weigh?
bphh
470g or roughly 1lb according to their website.
