Doug, here's the breakdown for my luxury setup. You can decide if it's too much to carry.

234g - Porlex Mini grinder
228g - Aeropress cylinder, cap, and plunger
221g - small procelain cup
107g - foam-insulated one liter water bottle carrier (like this one: Click Here (cache.backpackinglight.com))
18g - 10 Aeropress filters in a baggie
16g - small cotton towel

With pre-measured beans in individual baggies for 4 cups it's about 900g total, or roughly 2 lbs, and it all fits in that zippered foam bottle carrier (23cm X 11cm diameter).

My other hand grinder, a Kyocera CM-50 (virtually identical to the Hario Skerton) weighs 233g without the glass jar. I used to mate that grinder directly to the top of the Aeropress (with the help of a homemade neoprene sleeve) so I didn't need the glass jar. The porlex weighs almost exactly the same, it's more compact (it fits in the Aeropress plunger), and I like it better as a grinder. According to Sweet Maria's, the Hario Slim weighs 245g, just a tiny bit more.

Of course a plastic mug and a plastic cone (or that tea infuser thingy that redkiosk has posted about) would save weight.

I've never looked into the Aeropress as of yet, either..

I'll have to look into portable grinders..

But that would be a luxury, I think..

Posted April 3, 2013 link

I hear ya, and I go light in the back country. However, a grinder and freshly ground coffee are such a wonderful luxury when you wake up and get out your tent on a chilly blue bird morning in the alpine, or by the lake, or on the river.... It's just not negotiable for me.
