When I was just getting into adventure camping, my buddy Andy told me one of the first things I should buy was a JetBoil. At that time, they were the only ones who were making a high-output burner, and I honestly believe it to be one of the best purchases I've ever made.
Now 15 years later, we have options. And a great option is the Kovea Alpine Pot. It's easy to compare to a JetBoil in that they both serve the same purpose, however from a function stanpoint, we here at GTFO feel the Kovea is a way better product.
From the retractable valve to the included pot and cup to the way it feels in your hand, the Alpine Pot just plain feels like a quality product. It's like that feeling when you pick up a Snap-on wrench, and you just know you are holding something good.
Oh, and it boils water real, real fast so you can get coffee in your guts faster.
