I bring my little grinder from REI for a sandwich-bag full of coffee beans. I have my little metal filter from REI for my ground coffee and hot water. So easy. Probably not more than 4-5 ounces of equipment and grinder easily folds up to slip in my day pack. Try it!!
Be very careful if you're using a battery operated bean grinder....you don't want to start a cattle stampede! 😉
