Propane Coffee Maker

Has anyone tried one of these? They look like a great solution for coffee making -

I am also looking at the Coleman Camping coffee maker that you put on a propane stove - they are around $33 on Amazon

I have the Coleman and it works great. The only thing is it doesn't have a warming feature so I carry a thermal carafe.

Same here - we use the Coleman, carry a thermal carafe and love it. Both take up a little more room that we'd like, but it sure makes a great cup of coffee and I'm not sure I want to compromise on that.

Our Bunn is crapping out at home. Wonder if it hooks up to LP.

Robert and I also use the Coleman. Look in the thrift stores in your area. Lizbeth found ours that way and snagged it for us for $10. It was in the box and looked unused.

I may just have to try that direct Propane model...

I too have the Coleman. I keep in the bottom, tall cabinet of my Bigfoot galley. I found it via Craig's list for about $15 and bought a stuff sack for it at my local camping store. Nancy, as others have already stated, the Coleman does not keep the coffee warm once brewed. But if you already own a thermos, you are set!

If you or Frederick decide go get the direct Propane model, I'd be interested in your reviews.

I've used a manual Melitta for over 20 years. Just a simple cone and a pot - use any stove to boil water. When we accidentally left our last one in a motel in Denver I found a replacement at Amazon.

Hi there,

We use a Melita manual coffee maker that comes with and drips into a carafe. Like it lots.

The link listed 76 different retailers, none of whom I am familiar with. However, the price ranges from a LOW of $74.86 and a HIGH of $217.98!

I'm beginning to like my $10 Coleman even more every day.

We are using a small percolator that goes on the stove, small and light.

I have a Coleman camping coffee maker but it takes to long and is to bulky.
I use my french press travel mug I bought for camping about 3 years ago everyday. I only use the coffee maker when I have company.
The mug capacity is 1 2/3 cups which is enough to get me going in the morning.
They have comparable mugs on Amazon.
It makes great coffee and all you need is a tea kettle to heat the water.
