I use a plastic insulated cup with a snap on lid I got free at a Texaco station 20 years ago.  It's light stable and effective (keeps coffee hot for a pretty long time).  I visit the coffee cup section at REI periodically and (amazingly) I have not seen anything that appears any better for the weight.  Which seems crazy in this location, day and age.  Be interested in knowing what other folks use.  Mine weighs 4 oz.  Not willing to sacrifice performance or weight.

Great minds think alike.  Tried the exact approach and a couple variations.  Light, but easy to crush and not as good thermally- I think due to heat loss through the lid.

I picked up this reusable coffee cup at Starbucks a while back for $1. Weighs in at 1.6 oz.  I actually use it as my daily coffee cup.  Not sure if it meets your insulation needs but keeps my coffee reasonably warm and it won't crush in your pack.

I use the JetBoil pot (5.2oz) that I heated the water in.  Total extra weight 0oz, and it has a thin neoprene cozy to keep it hot.  I use Starbucks Italian Roast Via, which is my favorite "instant" coffee.

The plastic cover for the heat exchanger on Jetboils works pretty well for a cup also.

System..... wtf? What a nimrod. What a maroon. embarassedlaugh.gif

I have a plastic thermo cup I bought at the Red Apple in Concrete about 15 years ago for a buck 99. It's cracked here and there, so it isn't very thermo, and I promptly lost the lid right after I bought it, but it works just fine.

I thought about trying that coffee cup... system..... of yours (Tom had mentioned it years ago), but knowing how I operate, I figured the cup would get crushed, so I nixed that idea.

nothing better than a cuppa joe in the mountains or on the coast or camped on the Taos River with dad...

Steve your post is a do-over.  I expect thermodynamic greatness from you.

Kim this is complicated stuff- way out of your league.

I could go back to sprinkling coffee grounds on my bagel system or just chewing on them. If you're interested in saving weight, do that & leave the stove system at your home system.

Sheesh.  My intellect is wasted here.    rolleyes.gif

I guess if you’re missing a few front teeth getting grounds caught isn’t a problem.

I never thought of myself as a "purist" when it comes to coffee, but drinking java out of a plastic cup just seems ... yuck.  Ski's cup looks like one of those coated metal ones - that's what I use.  I guess I drink too quickly for insulation to be much of a concern.

It's a good thing I wasn't drinking coffee when I read this - it would have ended up all over.  As it was, my cat gave my the look for disturbing the peace.

I have a lightweight red plastic cup.  Red is important.  I figure drinking out of plastic is likely less harmful than other things I eat (or drink).
