The Grand Staircase Escalante is one of America’s least known National Monument areas, and yet it is also one of the largest. Comprising over 1.8 Million acres (nearly 50% larger than Delaware!)The Grand Staircase Escalante is named for the incredible stepped cliffs, canyons and plateaus that make up a geological “staircase” formation that eventually leads all the way to the rim of the Grand Canyon. In fact this area is so vast and remote, it was one of the last areas in the continental United States to be fully explored and mapped.
For this very first Edition in our new Adventure Series, we embarked on an unforgettable adventure with noted photographer and explorer, Sinuhe Xavier. With this new line, our goal is to inspire and enable our customers to explore and experience new places. We chose the venerable Toyota Land Cruiser as our steed of choice which was perfectly at home on the dusty roads of the American Southwest.
As fuel for this adventure, we selected an herbaceous Ecuadorian coffee with notes of Honey Dew and Coffee Cherries.
Month’s of R&D went into creating the ultimate off-grid coffee kit. Initially created around our needs for our adventure across one of America’s most remote areas, The Grand Staircase Escalante, this kit evolved into what it is now after putting various items to the test in the unique desert landscape.
Each of these 25 pieces is laser engraved with its own serial number, and contains everything you need to make a great cup of coffee wherever your on or off road adventures may take you. While the top layer has been filled with the very best backcountry coffee tools, the bottom layer remains open, making it the perfect place to store your favorite camp stove and gas canisters. Each kit contains the following:
Pelican 1510 Case with Foam
1 Can of our Limited Edition “ESCALANTE” Whole Bean Coffee
1 VSSL Coffee Grinder
1 VSSL Coffee Grinder Travel Bag
