Express Expresso Maker

After a cold day out on the trails, nothing’s better than a hot cup of Joe while sitting next to the fireplace in a Class A diesel motorhome. Espresso on the go just got a whole lot easier with the Bialetti Moka Express Espresso Maker. As an Italian favorite, demand for a simpler way to make this tasty concoction is where the Moka Express shines.  Available in six or twelve cup versions, this espresso maker receives high reviews for the quality coffee it produces.

The Solo Stove firepit is available in multiple sizes; ideal for any type of adventure. The key to Solo’s innovation comes in its 304 stainless steel construction and the Signature 360° Airflow Design™.

It's exactly the gift that the caffeine addict in your life needs! The Ember coffee mug allows you to set your drinking temperature and keep it exactly how you want, for up to 80 minutes. Using smart LED technology, the mug provides a visual indicator when it reaches the desired temperature. This advanced hot beverage holder has a built-in rechargeable battery that’s quick to replenish from the included charging dock. Easily controlled by a phone app, there is also an option for a travel mug if you prefer that style. Personally, we’re loving the new metallic colors for a more sleek look!
