Don't make fun of my coffee obsession.  
Having traveled once and experienced the pain of either no coffee, or terrible coffee, I no longer take chances.

Especially after reading a review in which coffee at the Venetian was difficult to obtain, and then cost something like $8 per person!

I am taking my travel coffee gear. (It was my camping coffee set up, but has now graduated to situations beyond camping.) Which includes this hand grinder. This mokapot, and stovetop milk frother. Freshly roasted beans.

And added to the group, only because the Venetian sucks and doesn't include a coffeepot, mind, is this electric hot plate. Weighs less than 3 pounds, and I already tested it out on the moka pot and milk frother. We are good to go for excellent coffee every morning in our room!

Stop looking at me like that. My coffee is my warm and fuzzy morning. I refuse to give it up on vacation, or pay extortionist rates for a lesser quality cup.

Even before I was a loose tea snob, I always brought my own bagged tea when I went places so I'd make sure I had *my* tea.

Now that I'm a loose tea snob, I bring my own loose tea and my tea maker.

In short, I understand :D

Hey, I went camping awhile back and brought a kettle and a french press. The only concession I made was pre-grinding my coffee since there wouldn't be an outlet. My friends all laughed until the first morning, when I had delicious coffee and they had water. Lucky for them, I am forgiving (and brought extra mugs).

You are not alone!
