I spotted an old style white enameled percolator in a bin at an antiques shop, with all the appropriate innerds still intact. Its nice for making perk coffee and can also heat water. It reminds me of camping out when I was younger (even the occasional ground that floats around in my cup ).

A new coffee option.. trader Joes is selling a little tube of instant already mixed with creamer and sugar. Not everyone's taste but if you like your coffee that way, it's pretty good. You really need two portions for a good sized cup but they are 10 for$2 so not a big deal.

I have been using my Keurig B130 (small footprint, office model) when I have electric and Starbucks Via when I don't, but I think I will stock the cheaper TJ's stuff.

Both the Via and the TJs stuff taste like instant to me at first taste, but then they taste pretty good. Since I normally bring along sweetened creamer, I figure the TJs works for me. And easy to boil water on the gas stove. Via offers you more choices in blends of coffee and I think they have decaf.

This is what I am waiting for, though.

MyFrenchPress

Then I could stock the same k-cups which gives better coffee and lots of choices. But it has been coming soon for six months now.

Smile How we make coffee

We use hot water and instant. That way we can make tea, hot chocolate, or any of the flavored coffees, even bouillon and soups.

At home we heat a full teakettle of water, complete with whistle, and then pour it into one of these:

ShopStanley-pmi.com*:* Classic Vacuum Bottle 2.0 Qt. - Hammertone

The water stays hot for hours and even overnight.

When camping, we just heat enough water to make the two cups/mugs whatever.

Bobbie,

The Aeropress coffee system looks like the MyFrenchPress you linked to and is out. Got one and it makes a good cup of coffee and is easy to use and clean. We will use it when we go camping in April.

We have been using the good old reliable Melitta drip filter when we camp. I will always keep the cone in my camping/trailer supplies.

Teri

French press is the way to go. Only requirement is hot water and you can grind your coffee fresh before leaving. Plus, you can toss all the left overs on the ground and not kill the environment. No plastic containers to pack out and one of the freshest forms of coffee you can have.
Time for a cuppa!

We are big fans of the AeroPress. For us it is the ideal way to make coffee while camping, and the coffee tastes better than what we make at home. (this could be just because we are away and relaxing)

The problem with the aero press is cleaning and storing of loose coffee. I want something that works like that but uses pods or k-cups for the freshness and easy cleanup. aeropress is basically like a French press which is a pain to clean, although the filters help some. I don't use a French press at home due in part to the mess.

They make steel french presses, about as simple as coffee gets. I think I even saw one at Wallyworld. I have one made by coleman but it doesn't look like they make them anymore.
