They have comparable mugs on Amazon.
It makes great coffee and all you need is a tea kettle to heat the water.

John, looks like a good idea. To tell the truth I was thinking of getting something similar on the Amazon site to use when I am camping alone.

I think the french press is preferable (for me) to a manual drip system. But its drawback is ... the grounds to be cleaned up.

Nothing is perfect.

The brewfire looks like it might be kind of bulky for the tiny countertop areas that so many of us have in our trailers. But if you have an outdoor kitchen setup, it would probably be fine. Me, I use a percolator, or else a mellita drip cone.

After much fussing with different methods of making coffee while Scamping over the last 5 years we finally hit one that works best for us. Takes up a small amount of space. Easy to use and makes a good cup of coffee.

GSI Java Drip Coffee Maker - 30 oz. at REI.com

Look at all the pictures to get the idea of how it works. We use paper filters which are simply disposed of. Rinse out the pot and it's ready for the next round. We liked the coffee presses except for the cleaning.

I just bought the same Melitta 10 cup manual drip coffee pot that you listed above. I got mine from Bed Bath & Beyond (online only) for $12.99. It is hard to beat that price for a nice cup of drip coffee. The 10 cup capacity is nice, compared to many of the smaller portable coffee solutions.

The grocery store near my house carries the #6 cone filters for it, but be aware that many stores do not... for instance, my local Wal-Mart. I believe the #6 cones are only used for manual drip, so there is probably not a whole lot of demand for them.

Oh, and you'll need a tea kettle or some other means of heating the water.

I got the one cup Melitta filter cone, a hand me down from a friend. Works like a champ. I am considering getting the bigger one as well. Hey, a teakettle is necessary for tea anyways. But a simple cooking pot works also to heat water...

I had one of those for years when we lived in Iowa City/Coralville because we didn't have soft water and our coffee makers would crap out left and right. I finally got one for the camper because I got tired of "creek coffee". Coffee that taste like it's out of the creek.

Sounds like you had a percolator... I never could make drinkable coffee with one of those. I am really excited about having good drip coffee in the Scamp this weekend. The wife is excited because she gets to have her M.E. Swing coffee (D.C. are roasting company).

Worse then that. This coffee was made in pot older then me so it can go into a museum. It is sometime referred to as cowboy/Boy Scout coffee. No strainer. Boil the water, put in the grounds, let it sit and steep and hope you can drink it. I was told by old farm wives the secret was to put an egg shell in it to get the grounds to settle.

My favorite it to see tent campers at electrical sites with their automatic coffee maker plugged in on the top of the electrical box.

Sounds pretty nasty...

Re: tent campers -- I could see myself doing that back when I was 18. If only they had electrical sites at my favorite campground back then! We used to bring a keg of home-brewed beer when we went tent camping...

What sad is some were quite mature. My husband would think beer for breakfast at 18 to be perfectly acceptable. He even discovered it as a third shift supervisor at Sheller Globe years ago. Except I would come home at 5 and find all the donuts gone and him and his beer can alseep in front of the TV.

Just got back from our first real Scamping adventure! The Melitta 10 cup manual drip coffee maker made it worth getting out of bed early. Our 6-month-old boy is teething, so he didn't let us get much sleep.

To make coffee, I heated up water in my electric kettle, which can heat enough water for about 6 cups (standard coffee measure). 8 cups was perfect for me and my wife, so I had to heat up water twice to finish a pot. I will keep an eye out for a slightly larger electric kettle just for the Scamp. I would like one of the "cordless" ones that has a base and a kettle, rather than the one-piece kettle like I have now.

The Melitta made wonderful coffee. The only comment, which should be obvious, is that it doesn't keep coffee hot like an automatic drip machine. I could use an insulated carafe... But I'll just drink my coffee faster!

When camping, you can't have it all but you can have it. Teething, snot nosed, unhappy child.
