With Grower's Cup brewing a cup of fresh, Fair Trade, organic coffee on the hill is easy peasy. Grower's Cup is a durable lightweight bag filled with some of the world's best coffee. All you need to do is pour in hot water, wait and enjoy. This new, innovative product will be exclusively distributed by Rosker Ltd.

Grower's Cup is best described as a disposable French press. Inside the pouch you have a filter with 24g of freshly ground, speciality coffee. To brew three cups of coffee, all you need to do is open, pour in half a litre of hot water and brew for five-eight minutes. Five types of coffee are available – Ethiopian, Honduran, Guatalaman, Nicaraguan, and Bolivian. Each pack states the name of each plantation and its growing altitude, just like a fine wine does.

Grower's Cup is a Danish invention that comes from one of the leading barrista training academies. The unique brewing system preserves the coffee's natural oils, enhancing the coffee's delicate flavours and finer aromas that can only be achieved by using a French press. However, unlike the French Press, on pouring the first one-and-a-half cups the brewing process stops so the remaining coffee won't go bitter. In short, you can't brew a better coffee in a more convenient way.

Grower's Cup baristas have carefully selected an exclusive range of the finest coffees from around the world. All coffees are single estate or from named cooperatives. The berries are hand-picked and hand-sorted and then slow-roasted by Grower's Cup in small portions on their Micro-roastery, which enhances the coffees' unique character.

At £2.50 and super-lightweight, this little pouch of delicious fresh coffee will become an essential part of many outdoor enthusiast's packing list. Each sachet will give you three cups of coffee.

I for one welcome this product. It sounds swish. Although I wish the picture told a better story, Off to their website now I guess.

I'd agree it sounds great (and the website is informative) but at £2.50 a go I think I'll be sticking with an instant solution for now.

I like coffee... but that's more than the coffee chains charge, unless you get more than one pck for £2.50 Or two of these at 24p each.... or Stabuck Via instant at about £40p a serving (if you think its worth it!) or at £25 (10 servings of the other stuff) and whatever coffee you want... or the primus etapower pot and coffee filter at about £40, but you have a pot you can cook in too.

At basecamp on the baltoro the taiwanese team had some single use coffee sachets sort of like this though they basically opened them out and clipped a stiff bit of card over opposing lips of the cup. The coffee was in a (now open) pouch and you poured the hotw*ter through it and let it drip through. Then you just binned the sachet. Worked really well and they said it was very cheap. Can't find them either in the shops or on google, maybe it's a far eastern thing? Or you've got the jetboil coffee press or the mug press. You can use what coffee you like then and don't have to carry much waste out. Shan't be buying these at over £2 a pop... Can get a costa for that..

"At £2.50 and super-lightweight, this little pouch of delicious fresh coffee will become an essential part of many outdoor enthusiast's packing list". I don't think so
