It's simple, compact and makes a really good cup of coffee. Additionally, it works very well in the camper but for on the road you would have to go the thermos route.
Everyone. Get an Aeropress. Don't ever look back. I use one daily except when I'm brewing a larger pot and then I use the Melita pour over. The metal re-usable filter for the Aeropress takes it up one more notch.

I use a Hario on the road but really dislike it. It's the bulbous shaped model. I may get something a little more user-friendly this summer.

I used to use a scale, but have since gave it up to use a scoop to measure the beans, which is reasonably accurate.

Sounds like a good method for Cowboy Coffee, which done properly can produce a very nice cup. Well, except for the reference to a can of Maxwell House, that is. The worst thing you can do is to boil the water with the grounds in it, and over extract the bitterness out of the coffee.

I used to use a Porlex, which actually did a decent job on the grind, it was just a PITA to use. I can't say enough about the OE Lido 3. The grind is very consistent, and the ease with which it works is fantastic. It is a little bigger and heavier, and costs more, but for us, is well worth the trouble to bring along. It is one of those tools that you really enjoy using, and gives you pride of ownership.

We have 2 9 cup stainless steel espresso pots, leaded and unleaded. They work quickly on the LPG stove top.

I prefer instant coffee (Taster's choise Nescaffe brand is the best). Any boiling water source works good to me :-)

Moderators. Ban this guy!

Oh wait, that's me.

Everyone has every right to do as they please, and quick and easy has its merits.

Guess we must be a dinosore breed as we still use the perculator on the propane stove but we did find out that the drip coffee used no-a-days are too fine for the basket so we use a paper filter inside the basket.
For on the road I will stop at a conveinient store and take my travel mug in...Usually will cost 99 cents for any size cup.

Well, everyone has a right to bring troubles to themselves. Like travelling with a pop-up camper in a heavy rain, or brew real coffee while boondocking. :-)

What I got out of this thread is how seriously we all take our coffee. I'm a moka pot - dark roast kind of guy myself.

I like this method. What do you use as a "fine mesh"? This sounds like a better method than using the percolator that I use while camping. The percolator has to be watched and then timed. And it boils the coffee it is making. But it has extra coffee for those second and third cups later.

Why not just use the Melita cone filter? Heat the water on the stove. Pour it into the filter holder with the grounds. Drink the coffee and toss the filter and grounds.
Took a bit of effort to find, but we have stainless thermal carafe with fitted filter holder.
