GoSun, the company that brought us the GoSun Flow portable sink and shower and GoSun Go solar oven, has its ninth crowdfunded product underway. The GoSun Brew is an insulated, solar-powered travel mug that integrates a 12-volt heater and a French press, with all the technology housed inside the base. That means you can brew a cup of coffee or tea from start to finish in an all-in-one cup virtually anywhere, with no messy setup or complicated process.
A successfully funded project on Kickstarter, GoSun Brew is a must-have for regular campers, outdoor enthusiasts or off-gridders who can’t go without their morning cup of joe. As an added bonus, the travel mug provides ample power to charge electronics portably thanks to its 266-watt/hour solar power bank — powerful enough to brew eight cups of coffee, charge a laptop three times or charge a smartphone 22 times. It only weighs about 3 pounds, so it can be easily packed in with the rest of your gear.

With ever-increasing wildfire dangers, this device offers a much safer alternative to portable coffee makers that require additional heat to operate. “We are big coffee lovers here at GoSun. Before this invention, brewing that precious cup of morning coffee was impossible without gas or fire,” said Patrick Sherwin, founder and CEO of GoSun. “Unfortunately, fires are dangerous and can be highly destructive as we’ve seen so much this year. Now, thanks to the launch of the GoSun Brew, you can make your morning cup of joe and charge your devices with clean, powerful, free energy from the Sun. It’s time to stop the burn, and now is the time to go solar.” In places like California, where power outages have become more and more common, the solar mug can come in handy for coffee lovers inside the home, too.
The GoSun Brew includes a power carrying case for protection and transportation. The case also houses all of the necessary cables and accessories for the travel mug, with a powerbank that can charge wirelessly through USB, adjustable DC port or a 15A carport. The project exceeded its funding goal on Kickstarter, and first deliveries are expected in April 2021.
