Here's the Bialetti Mukka Express, a stove top cappuccino maker that one can
take camping and use on the range or a picnic table camping stove.
Kinda pricey at about $90... If milk is a problem, I suppose powdered
milk could be used (I think powdered milk is essentially skim/non-fat
milk from what I see on the nutrition table on the box).

We got one last year. Not perfect cappuccino but not half bad either. Of course, if you leave out the milk, it also makes nice espresso.

Very interesting!

I am familiar with the Italian coffee maker (such as the Bialetti's classic Moka Express) - in my father-in-law's house one is expected to be able to use one - but I had not heard of this variation which adds a pressure regulator and frother to prepare the milk at the same time.

This type of coffee maker in general is well suited to trailer use, since it is compact and needs nothing but a stove burner. We found a really inexpensive two-cup model and bought it just for use in the Boler... again, without the milk feature.

It's also better for cleanup than an French press, because the grounds are contained in the little cup in the funnel.

If you don't want typical strong espresso, just adjust the water/coffee ratio for the desired strength... it's just a filter coffee maker, using steam pressure to push the water up instead of dripping down by gravity.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I received the cow version as a Christmas present last year. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the drinks it produces. It took a little practice to get the hang of it, but that's half the fun anyway!

I bought a "campfire" cappucino maker at a dollar store here in canada--makes 4 cups...Cost about $6. Has the little funnel for grounds,again the steam pushes the water up and over the grounds---quite a nice little unit..and quite quick.

Then I bought a metal cup that holds 2 cups milk (cheapo at Princess Auto) and a battery operated milk frother.. I also have a small bottle of sf flavorings--what more do you need?

Uses 2 burners, to make the coffee, heat the milk and I bought great big "melmac" latte cups and just as good as home!!!! We feel kinda smug on coolish mornings sitting at our front dinette in our "little" egg, listening to Cd's and sipping on a latte.......

My daughter reports that her Target store carries the Mukka. I use a six-cup Moka myself to make my coffee, with a tablespoon of El Cheapo French Roast from Wally and a tablespoon of fine-grind Cuban coffee.

I use that cappuccino maker every day . Ideal for making one cup or two . Simplicity never fails . The less junk you carry when going camping, the more enjoyable the whole thing is .

WOW ! I love this forum!

I ordered one of the Mukka Express pots. I think this will be the idea accessory, ... small, light, fast.

Keep up the good work folks! I'm sure there are many more ideas out there that we all can benefit from.

Did not buy one but saw them at "Bed Bath and Beyond" store today for $89 bucks.

What are the internal parts of this made out of?
I was wondering if anyone knows if they are stainless steel or aluminum?
Thanks
