Brew Your Own Adventure: Traveling with Malu

Brew Your Own Adventure: Traveling with Malu

With warm weather upon us, vacation planning is in full swing, and with all the excitement of travel comes the added stress of ensuring you have everything you need. From packing the perfect outfits to mapping out the best sights and experiences, the last thing you want to worry about is your morning coffee ritual. But let's face it: as much as we love exploring new places and cultures, finding a great cup of coffee while traveling can be a challenge. 

You wake up in your hotel room, excited to explore a new place, but then you see that little coffee pod machine on the counter, and your heart sinks. You know you’re in for a bitter cup and there’s no telling the last time it’s been thoroughly cleaned. At Malu, we don’t believe in compromising on coffee, whether you’re on a hike, on the road, or in the sky. Each single serve coffee pouch is specifically designed to brew a delicious pour over in minutes with only hot water needed.

Here are just a handful of our favorite ways to make every trip an adventure with Malu:

Say goodbye to mediocre coffee on the road

With most trips involving some form of transit and periods of extended waiting, you shouldn’t have to settle for whatever coffee is along the route to your destination. Road trip java is easy to plan ahead for with a Malu pouch and a thermos. You can brew minutes before heading out the door or order hot water at the next rest stop to brew along the way. 

Carry on for high altitude sips 

Malu’s lightweight design makes it easy to bring along your carry-on luggage. Simply ask the flight attendant for a cup of hot water, place the pouch over your cup, and pour the hot water into the filter. In just a few minutes, you'll have a delicious cup of coffee to enjoy at 30,000 feet. 

BYO Room Service

Many hotels and accommodations only offer basic coffee options, like single-use pods or bland drip coffee. Instead, we like to take advantage of the electric kettle available in most hotel rooms to brew a fresh and flavorful cup of Malu Coffee. It's the perfect way to start your day right and enjoy a taste of home while away.

Go the distance

There's nothing quite like enjoying a hot cup of coffee in the great outdoors, but bringing all the necessary equipment can be a hassle. With Malu, you can easily bring high-quality coffee on your next hiking or camping trip without weighing down your backpack. Simply pack a few pouches and bring along your hot water in a thermos or heat some on your portable camp stove. Then, sit back, relax, and enjoy the breathtaking views with a delicious cup of coffee in hand.

The more, the merrier

Like a good vacation, good coffee is meant to be shared. No matter where your trip may take you, it’s easy to bring a few extra pouches to share with friends along the way. Not only will you impress them with your barista skills, but you'll also introduce them to their new favorite coffee ritual– which is an adventure all on its own.
