One could heat 6 oz. of water, cut the foil top off a K cup and dump the coffee into a paper cone filter. Place the filter in a Mellita drip filter holder, pour in the hot water and get nice hot K cup coffee without spending $25.

I perc my coffee in a 58yo percolator pot that was part of a wedding present to my parents...traded it off my mom a few years ago for a cable to hook up their dvd player.

I think the keurig's are overpriced and dont like the waste... maybe the refilable cups wouldnt be as bad. I used to have one of these...Vacuum Coffee Maker - How does it work? Demo - YouTube

made a great cup of coffee but kinda fragile

I used to have a stainless steel vacuum pot. It was great. The spring loaded strainer didn't even require a paper filter.

My wife and I are espresso addicts, each with our own combination with warm milk. We take one of these bad boys on the road in the scamp, works like a charm:

I use a Moka Pot at home a fair bit too. Not a true espresso, but still makes a great cup. Best of all, for campers, no electricity required. I don't usually add anything but a bit of hot water (Americano), or sometimes after dinner with some frothed milk (Cappuccino). These Moka pots make the best cup with fresh ground coffee too.

In my entire life I've had (1) really good cup of coffee.
It was so long ago I can't remember where.

And, I've only had (1) good tasting beer in my life.

Maybe I need taste bud transplants.

Problem is, K-Cups are far from fresh to begin with...

To each his own, Some people think drinking coffee at all is a waste of time, and some wouldn't go anywhere but the best coffeehouse with a fresh roaster in the corner, even if they are out camping. Just because someone finds a method that works doesn't mean everyone else has to claim there is a better way.

Another Keurig addict

We're addicted to Newman's Special Blend K-cups and have a Mr. Coffee/Keurig machine in our Scamp. We'll definitely get a Cafejo for boon-docking. We've tried a couple of French presses and have a hard time getting the grind right to avoid too many grounds.

I find all the back and forth your message has inspired interesting. Just goes to prove that coffee drinkers are an opinionated lot.

Thanks for the tip!

Wasn't posting that there was a better way, just interesting to see what peeps consider 'fresh'. Your words, not mine...
