12V Coffee Pots

Hi,
Miss my brewed coffee in the wild. Has anyone used the 12V Coffee Makers? I see some state 30 -45 minutes to make a pot. I could put up with the time, but don't know what the coffee would be like. If someone is using one, give me a review and the brand.

Elvin

How about a Coleman drip coffee-maker designed to work on a propane stove? Someone here had posted this:

and I was intrigued. After I mentioned it to my sister, she bought me one as a birthday gift, probably because my last batch of cowboy coffee at our annual family camp was rather chewy. :r
I haven't field tested it yet, but it looks like it should work almost as well as my home version. I believe it's available at Wal-Mart.

options

I tried a 12V drip maker but it don't work, and really hammers a battery. Next was the folger's singles coffee bags (like tea bags)...made with boiling water off the stove- ok but not quite the same. Now I just fire up the Honda 2000 and do 110V......have a 300W inverter but won't pull the coffee maker. I looked at that coleman drip unit but it is BIG and HEAVY!!! I would have to stash it in the bath up front to keep from lightening tongue weight!!:r

I don't want to hear about noise from commercial CG nagging nellies- remember this is in the boonies, or at racetracks and MG shoots!!!:quiet

Perfect cup o' Joe

We found a frech press coffee maker on ebay. You have to wait for the right one as they sometimes fetch a steep price.
You just pour boiled water in the pot with the coffee grinds, wait 4 minutes and press the filter down to trap the grinds in the bottom. We used it for a week during our recent vacation and when we got home the coffee just didn't taste as good as the french press. It was a whole new experience in coffee. Also, the pot is very light (although rather fragile) and doesn't take up much space.
Good luck

Tea kettle, melitta cone, filter, stainless steel thermos.

Not too complex.

Italian coffee pot

I don't drink coffee but an Italian friend of mine gave me tiny stove-top percolator that works for one cup at a time coffee. I am sure you could get one in a larger size.

Drip Coffee

Back in the olden days :o pre electric drip coffee pots, there actually was an inexpensive drip coffee maker. I believe it was called a 'Drip-o-lator.' Aluminum stove top type. You boiled the water, and poured it into a three section (four counting the lid) unit and it would drip down into the bottom.

You can still find them in flea markets, etc. I have just started looking for them. So far, the only ones I have seen are small, but I'm still lookin' :E :E

Coffee....

Ok, so I cheat a bit- with power and my handy aluminum drip pot (25c @St. Vincent DePaul Thrift store) I heat the water in the microwave and pour it in the top of the pot. By the time I've gotten back from a quick trip to the "little house" it's ready to drink. This also works well with the tea kettle if we're really roughing it.....

When my daughters left for college we found the one cup drip thingies at WalMart for under $5- lets you make 1 cup at a time of whatever type of coffee you have.

Have a great morning!

I use a stove top percolator style too. Easy, fairly fast, and you can't beat the smell of coffee perking first thing in the morning. I will try your filter idea Joe, then it'll be next to perfect ;)
I spent the extra $ for a stainless steel one rather than aluminum (aluminum has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease).

12 volt coffee maker

Thanks for all the replies. I currently use the Mary method, but was looking for a method to make several cups at once. I'm checking out the use of the motel type 5 cup filter packs on the stove. I have made some good and some real bad coffee with this approach. Don't know what the cause is exactly. Probably timing.

No volt coffeemaker

First one up heats the water in a pan. Soon as it boils it gets poured thru the drip funnel into the thermos/picher.

Love it!! :)
