I love my coffee though not a snob, I have been spoiled by my years in Costa Rica - home roasted beans and all. Down there we used Coffee Socks. I love both the Melitta systems and good ole Cowboy coffee. Mostly because clean up is easier. I haven't tried the Areo press I figure that if I am annoyed by French Press and I am that I won't wanna mess with it. My coffee two cents.

Lesa, cleaning up the AeroPress is extremely easy. Knock the puck out, and a quick 5 second wipe. Drip Through and Cowboy Coffee both can be a good way to extract the coffee.

I do Cowboy Coffee all the time if there is a big crowd camping. The trick (for those no aware) is not boiling the water, before or after the coarse grounds are dumped in. Then decant the coffee off within a few minutes after the grounds go in, and you will not draw the bitterness out of the coffee. I have converted a few folk who swore the it was nothing but tar (or mud).

Oh, yes it is. How do you think stuff like stews, sauces and the such were invented?

My mom likes to tell the story about me and 'potgetta'. I would mix the food on my plate and say potgetta (put it together). ☺

I am loving the diversity of ideas for the camping kitchen. We all enjoy our own preferences. I think more along the line of Green Frog; keeping the equipment minimal, serviceable and low-cost. I do go a little overboard, however, when it comes to glamping at the dinner table. (see photo). Note that we have individual trays that can be used for place settings or transporting items or for eating on your lap. Of course, a table setting would not be complete without flowers. Note the canning jar mug and the big insulated mug. Both have screw-on caps to cut down on spillage in transport. Almost everything is second hand. I have great fun poking around thrift stores for the "perfect find".

I try to keep things minimal, too. I found this great set of collapsible bowls that we use for cereal, yogurt, salad, and to store leftovers.

Ian,
Did you buy the Teflon finish cookware or the regular?
Thanks,

I'm not Ian, but I bought the Ceramica non-stick coating. Having used it for 1 1/2 years now, it is holding up great. We do stuff the original packing in between the pots while travelling to protect them (though it is getting quite tattered), but just ordered pot protectors from Magma earlier this week.

Seriously, I would bet that this set is as good, or better, than what many people use at home. The heat transfer on the set is great. I had been using my backpacking set, which works great for the right application (and is nice and light), but it is WAY easier to burn, and harder to control temps with.

I know some scoff at the cost, but one does have to be willing to pay, if they want quality. We love cooking fantastic meals while trailer camping, and this Magma set just adds to the experience.

Here are the pot protectors Magma now sells for $10 plus shipping. We had thought to make something, but buying is a way more cost effective use of my time. Can't comment on them, as they are in the mail.

I have that GSI frying pan and the Pinnacle camp set, I love them - they've held up great for me over 4 years of car camping, and seem to be a perfect match for our scamp. The pinnacle camp set easily fits inside the opening of the upper kitchen cabinets in our scamp (door openings are approximately 9 3/4" wide).

Wow, Sarah, I couldn't help but notice the paint job on your trailer. Could you post photos inside and out on the registry, please?

Thanks,
I am Ian and I bought the straight Stainless Steel, I am not a fan of no-stick coating. I find the stainless steel finish excellent and very easy to clean.
