Timbuk2 and Blue Bottle Coffee have teamed up to ensure that you never have to suffer another inferior coffee experience on the road. After considering the many types of coffee obsessives who would demand a high-end travel coffee kit, they designed a Timbuk2 bag stocked with a Porlex mini hand grinner, travel dipper, filters, Falcon Enamelware tumblers, a 2-ounce Blue Bottle coffee sample (along with a coffee subscription discount), and two custom felt zarfs. Really, just the essentials. And for $179, they could be yours. Order the travel kit online through Timbuk2 and Blue Bottle, or purchase one the old-fashioned way at Timbuk2 and Blue Bottle Coffee SF locations in Hayes Valley. Finally, you can replace the hours you would have spent searching a new city for good coffee with hours wandering with your own perfect cup.
