I don't know if there's a trade off, weight wise, between not carrying a stove and gas, and taking seeds and dried fruit. I seem to have enough energy.
Are you using instant coffee added to cold water? I like a lot of hot, strong cuban roast coffee in the morning. It is my one must have luxuries. I use a french press that fits into a Nalgene bottle. It's great. You steep the coffee, press, screw the lid on, then hike to a great spot and sip coffee, with camera at hand, as the sunrises.
