The plunger fits through the standard hole in the center of the Windburner's lid.
|The Windburner's coffee press consists of a filter (held in my mitten) and a plunger which fits through the hole in the lid.
|To pack, simply unscrew the two components of the plunger, and stow inside the pot next to the burner.
|Banding together the two sections of the plunger prevents the lower section from rolling away.
|The tip of the lower section of the plunger fits into the slot in the handle of the upper section.
|Fit the filter into the pot as shown and close the lid.
|The cup gets rather hot on the bare hand. A bandana serves as an insulator.
|Inevitably, a few small particles will get past the filter. The amount isn't bad with the Windburner's coffee press.
|The MSR Windburner, packed normally, with the coffee press' plunger stowed next to the burner. Everything fits nicely.
|The filter fits tightly over the heat exchanger assembly on the bottom of the pot.
|The cup fits neatly over the coffee filter. What a wonderful design!
I thank you for joining me,

The item reviewed here was provided to me at no charge for the purposes of this review. I am under no obligation to review this or any other item. I am not compensated for my reviews in any fashion other than in some cases I am permitted to keep the item reviewed. Given that I have well over a 100 backpacking stoves, a free stove frankly isn't going to buy anyone a good review. Stove companies must measure up if they want a decent review here. I am an amatuer stove blogger; I make my living elsewhere, in the IT field. I fit blogging in as time permits. Inasmuch as my income is derived elsewhere, monetary issues do not influence the reviews on this blog. Yes, I do have advertisements on the blog. I typically derive about $1.00 USD per day from the advertisements (last I checked). This is a mere pittance and does not influence my reviews in the slightest. Revenue from the advertisements goes toward hosting fees, stove fuel, and the like. The blog is self supporting in that sense, and my wife is quite happy that I'm not using the family's income to run the blog, particularly given how tough the economy is these days.
