I looked them up to, and read that they are difficult to clean, so they're off my list. That's my problem with the coffee press, though I have used it by using tea-bag things for the coffee.

Bobbie,

I've had this coffee maker for almost two years. The only thing hard, is wiping the grounds out. And that's not a chore. The filter, spring thing is one piece and I rinse it off. I don't wash my coffee pot every time I use it, but a quick cycle through the dishwasher does the trick.

I wonder if those coffee ground packets would work? May try that and let you know.

Just food for thought.

In a former life, I had one of the Bodums. We didn't use it for everyday coffee, but it was a fun thing when we had company! And there was absolutely no radar after-taste

Hmmmmm... So many ways to make coffee. Best part of camping is good old perked coffee. We use a Corning 8 cup perkerlator but the Aluminium ones work well and cost a lot less than a Mr Coffee.

Doesn't anybody boil coffee anymore. On a trip to Sweden most of the coffee was boiled and put into a glass (thermal) carafe.
Just boil the water. Take it off the heat. Add coffee. Return tio the heat until it just starts to boil. Serve. Best coffee around. Don't shake the pot.
I didn't see a Starbucks while in Sweden.

At home we use a drip coffee maker with a Swiss Gold filter. The glass thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot for hours and it doesn't seem to get bitter.

When traveling in Italy a few years ago, I wandered into a kitchen store and found the perfect thing...a metal coffee press! It's stainless and perfect for traveling or camping. I can use the pot to heat water or anything on top of the stove. It's unbreakable. I think mine is about a 4 cupper.

I'll look around for one online. I'm not sure it wasn't made for separating cream, but, it's perfect as a coffee press.

Well, after a quick search...

Ummmm...nothing like a good, strong cup of coffee in the morning!

Gigi,

Since that is a thermal pot one could not use it to heat the water, your pot sounds like a real keeper.

Hi,
We have an all stainless (inside and out) french press, which is great because it can be placed right on the heat. It's made really well, in the US. I found it in an old fashion army/navy/boy-scout supply store.
You never know what you will find in those places!

Coffee industry experts say French press is the best way to make coffee.

"The best way to control the time and temperature is to use a French press coffee maker. The French press offers unparalleled flavor due to perfect extraction time and delivery of the volatile oils that are often trapped in paper filters. A French press is also the least expensive coffee brewer available." http://www.coffeeresearch.org/coffee/brewing.htm

Nissan makes an insulated stainless steel French press pot that is excellent and travels well. Here's just one of many sources:
