I shopped second hand shops in several states until I got three (3) stainless, copper bottom percolators that make "6 cups" (but only sissy sized cups) each. I was lucky enough to find a set of glass innards for the Revere that was missing its set, got one complete Revere and one Ecko. One for home, one for the trailer, and one to make sure I don't run out! Yeah, I like my coffee.

buy an old fashon percolater pot. buy some good perk grind coffee. practise a bit at home. you have to let it perk awhile and need to get the timing just right. and make sure you watch it cause when it first starts to perk it can boil over. turn it down till its just bibling perfectly.

the practice and effort will pay off. nothing is better then a well perked fresh cup of camp coffee in the morning.
i think i got mine at miejers in the camping section, its stainless steel.

There are several steps to the perfect coffee:

1) Drive to Starbucks
2) Park
3) enter store
4) ask for the biggest Dark Roast they can make
5) add cream, sugar, whatever to taste
6) stir
7) put lid on cup
8) get back in vehicle
9) drive back to campsite

I'm new to RVing so all my supplies are carrier over from tent camping. I'm definitely a coffee connoisseur. For years I used a Camping nalagene French press. Definitely took skill but once perfected it was awesome. It was very bulky though.
Introducing Starbucks microgrind. Before I go further I have to say I don't drink instant! This is different, they microgrind it, not dehydrate as other "instants". Give it a try. Changed my life.... well my morning anyway.

Actually I think I poster earlier about how I actually do it. A Mellita cone filter is involved, along with a burr grinder and French (or Italian) roast blended with light roast Columbian coffees. Coffee is one thing I can afford to actually be a connoisseur about!

AeroPress

Another great option is the Aerobie AeroPress. Filters are dirt cheap, re-usable, and it makes great coffee.

You can get them here: Aeropress

My wife likes tea, I like coffee. So we got a tea pot and a french press. We boil the hot water on the stovetop in the teapot, and after she pours her cup of tea, I use the remaining hot water in the french press. Seriously, I don't know if it's the camping, or the french press or what, but that makes the best tasting cup of coffee. Much better than my good 'ol drip at home.

My son the coffee geek gave me one of these to grind the fresh homeroasted coffee beans he sends me. It works very well for camping and is adjustable for any grind...no current bush needed.

Hario Skerton Ceramic Coffee Mill - Coffee Grinders & Mills
They're also available on Amazon. Another brand, Kyrocera looks identical.
Once I've ground my beans, I use a 20 oz. stainless steel french press I bought from liquidplanet.com to brew the java. Makes for a great couple cups of wake-me-up in the morning.

Coffee - Comfort Food

I love making coffee first thing in the morning. The smell for coffee on the stove percolating and the heat from the stove takes away the morning chill. While the joe is brewing I'm getting dressed and getting my stuff together for the day ahead. Just about the time the coffee is ready Cindy and the dogs return from their morning walk and we enjoy the atmosphere and a nice hot cup of coffee and talk about the adventure ahead!

Oooh! Nice. Fresh ground beans...I think that'll be my next step in search of the perfect cup!

The beans MUST be fresh ground. Whatever roast/blend you enjoy, but the coffee begins to go stale within minutes of being ground. If I do not have a current bush around, a small inverter (even if I have to run it by plugging into the lighter in my TV!) powers a small burr grinder. Water is heated already B4 grinding beans. (Water must be a few degrees cooler than boiling, or coffee becomes harsh & bitter!)

So you admit that you are drinking coffee grounds (albeit very finely ground), and liking it.

I have never been a coffee drinker. My wife always wants her cupful in the morning though. She's currently using a 1-cup drip brewer from Hamilton Beach that uses regular coffee grounds in a little washable screen-basket. No paper filter needed.

I have been reading a lot of the Louis L'Amour western novels, and L'Amour must have really loved his coffee. Many of the characters in his novels subsist for long periods on nothing more than coffee and bacon... and sometimes just coffee! His cowboy characters can be riding along with nothing to eat, but they'll stop to build a fire and make coffee, and then they can ride on just fine for the rest of the day.
