    I am an avid coffee drinker and I HATE powdered creamer. Fret not. There is an alternative. It's Nido powdered whole milk, found in your local Walmart in the section with the Mexican foods. It is almost as good as milk or cream in your coffee, plus it high in fat so it makes great hiker staple. I make my coffee using the Mini Minit one cup filters.

    Chocolate covered espresso beans are one of my favorite hiking snacks.

    Those are dangerous. Someone gave me some and I though my heart was going to explode. Note to self 4 strong cups of coffee and a lot of those are a little much in one day.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Talking An idea

    Just glanced at this thread and would have to add if it has not already that if you can tolerate tea or even like it, tea bags weigh next to nothing and serve two purposes at that. 1) is something to drink during the day which could be cold or warm (and you can make sun tea while walking), 2) the string from tea bags can be used as dental floss when needed. Another of those wonderful duel use items that takes no extra space and is useful at some point. On another note, the string on tea bags can be used in an emergency as sewing thread until you get to somewhere where you can get the proper thread or repair job done.

    Just a thought and my canadian nickels worth!

    Possibly a third use for tea, first-aid. These articles only cite topical applications on burns, but I could have sworn I read somewhere that it could be used on lacerations also.

    Tannic Acid derived from Black Pekoe Tea:

    http://www.geocities.com/lebr7/usotaninos.htm
    http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/407583_7

    This one says, "Where tannic acid is not available, strong, lukewarm tea is a good substitute.":

    http://www.time.com/time/magazine/ar...2600-2,00.html

    Here is some info on antibacterial effects of green tea:

    Antibacterial Activity Of The Crude Extract Of Chinese Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis) On Listeria Monocytogenes

    There is a ton more info on "the google" for anyone interested in reading further into it.

    Isn't tannic acid the same stuff native americans use to leach out of accorns to make them edible. So you could boil some accorns to make a tannic acid solution also.
