Hi
How long did it take to make a pot of coffee ?
We are planning to buy one just like yours
Thank you jean-L

Jean - so sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I haven't timed it yet, but it takes the same amount of time our electric drip coffeemaker takes, depending on how many cups you make. The Coleman can make up to 12 cups and it does make a very good cup of coffee.

The Clever Coffee Dripper is a new cone dripper that two improvements on the old style coffee makers. Unlike a Melitta, it has a shut off valve to allow steeping and it has a lid to keep heat in the top. There are several videos on line that show methods to alter coffee strength with one.

The easy way to make coffee: "Wife, get me a cup of coffee!" No muss, no worries about methods.

Just kidding!

Our method: 2 1/2 Qt. percolator :make it the night before and pour into 2 quart-size thermoses (1 w/sugar, 1 plain)
Enough and then some to get started in the A.M.
Note: The old glass lined thermos keeps coffee hot for up to 12 hours. Newer stainless ones don't seem to hold the temp. as long.

Wow, we sure love our coffee, I've been off the board most of the winter and was surprised to see this topic still going!
(almost reminds me of that other hot topic (okra) ....

Stainless steel stove top perculator and fresh ground beans for me. Simple. Works. Doesn't depend on having power, and the pot does double duty for other water boiling needs.

Original post:

We are going on our first campout in our Scamp, and I have our old tenting camp utensils including a small coffee pot thing--but it has nothing inside. Am I missing parts i don't remember, or can you make coffee in this thing. Most rv sites say get a percolator pot for stovetop or campstove. I do have a french press, but it's glass.
any suggestions, recipes???
Make cowboy coffee, bring water to a boil, take off heat, put several tablespoons into water and let steep for about five minutes, if necessary a 1/2 cup of cold water may be added to settle grounds. Mm, mm, good. Marg in NW California

Okra ? Guess I missed that one - Tell me more....

Lainey, if you want something really simple and much better (not bitter) tasting than percolated try the coffee cone drip method talked about in several posts above.

Percolators basically boil the coffee, more acid and less flavor.

Pour hot water over the grounds from a kettle. Use the kettle any time for other things without having to scrub!

That being said, If you like what you do and it works for you, keep it up! One person's coffee is another person's mud .

I knew someone who said their taste in coffee was the same as their taste in partners - strong and bitter...

FiberglassRV was founded in 2002, and a computer hacker destroyed all of the topics and posts and replaced them with his own political rant in November of 2005. The founder had to totally rebuild the site and add several security measures. The "Legacy Posts" (minus their photographs which were un-recoverable) are all that remain from 2002 to 2005.
Up to that time, the Okra Thread was the longest thread on this site. (30 pages x 14 posts per page = 420 individual posts about Okra!)
Somewhere along the upgrades, the original Okra thread was lost.

I can't believe the okra topic has died
Okra thread re-started

Before the above was posted I too was curious about the "okra" reference. I had searched the forum, indeed finding over 400 posts. Mysteriously, however, while many of them contain the word, its occurrence is random and irrelevant to the thread. Is there an Okratist among us suggestively inserting "okra" here and there in an effort to overcome what is surely a Natural Human Aversion to eating mucus-secreting vegetables?
The "pot" thickens.....especially if it has okra in it!
