Presto MyJo: Taking Your Coffee Pods Outdoors


Coffee.  Some simply enjoy it, others can’t exist without it.  No matter how we take it during our day to day, once we head into the great outdoors we seem willing to settle for that harsh sludge known as Campfire Coffee.  Ever wished you could just bring your coffee maker from home?  If you brew your morning cup in a Keurig  machine, you can…Kinda.  The Presto MyJo is a manual coffee maker that lets you brew a fresh cup of coffee using your favorite coffee pods.  All you need is a source of hot water.
The Presto MyJo is composed of 3 parts: the pod holder, the water resevoir, and the pump. Its operation is pretty simple. Place your favorite coffee pod in the lower pod holder section.  Be careful. There’s a needle in there, just like your Keurig machine at home. The water resevoir screws onto the top of the pod holder section. As it is screwed down, it pierces the pod to let the water in.  Add hot water to the resevoir.  Adding more or less water lets you adjust the strength of your brew.  Fit the rubber pump bellows to the top of the water resevoir and you are ready to go!  Balance the assembled MyJo on top of your favorite mug and press slowly and firmly on the pump. Compressed air will force the hot water thru the pod and brew your cup of happiness. 

The Presto MyJo could be a good addition to your camp kitchen.  The components seem durable enough for the backcountry.  Its light weight, and since it uses coffee pods, it will be easy for everyone in camp to enjoy their favorite brew.

I found my Presto MyJo at the local Walmart.  It’s available on Amazon for under $20. For it’s durability, versitility, and ease of use, the Presto MyJo gets the nod of approval.

About the Author:

I'm Paul Winks, and I'm proud to join the group at Military Hunting and Fishing. I'm a life long Hoosier, and Purdue Boilermaker fan. I grew up in a hunting and fishing family. My grandmother introduced me to panfish and morel mushrooms at a young age. My uncles took me on my first squirrel and rabbit hunts, and my Dad instilled a love of deer hunting and an appeitite for ginseng. Other intrerests, like waterfowl and turkeys, I picked up on my own. These days, waterfowl and river fishing consume most of my outdoor time, but I do still dabble in small game and deer every year. My two sons are my outdoor companions these days. I've spent a lot of time and effort to teach them the same respect and love for the outdoors that I developed years ago. I also have an entire tribe of grandsons, from first grade down to 2. My hands are gonna be full for years to come. I'm a welder by trade. That ability and desire to build has made me a avid DIY'er. Duck decoys, tree stands, and even duck boats...if I use it, I'm gonna try to build it. Chances are, if you are here, we have a lot of common interests. I look forward to sharing mine with you!
