For leisurely overnights, where time is plentiful but maybe pack size is at a premium and the only reason for having a stove is to soak up the vibe with your morning coffee rather than deliver essential nutrients for a grueling day in the saddle, what do people think of meths type stoves? From my moronic googling it seems like you can get very small/light/cheap ones which maybe make more sense for solo light use than canister gas burners?
If it's purely to boil water for your morning coffee a meths stove will do fine - I've got one of these I use for my brew kit: https://speedsterstoves.co.uk/combined-windscreen-pot-rest-for-alpkit-mytimug-650.html
together with a speedster stoves burner: https://speedsterstoves.co.uk/30ml-spill-proof-meths/alcohol-burner.html
It's not particularly fast, but is silent and does the job well enough.
For day rides with the OH or in a group I often just stick the Trangia + kettle in the saddlebag - it's not that heavy, and if I'm using the Camper Longflap I've usually got room to spare...
