I'm a coffee drinker and here are what I use.

From left to right in the picture:

Thermos---SS solo coffee press---SS stove top perc.---electric perc.

The solo press rarely gets used. While out on a day trek I ran out of coffee and grudgingly went into the nearest Starbucks. I have a glass press at home so when I saw the SS press I thought what a nice item for the Scamp.

My routine the night before is to have one of the perc's ready to go in the morning, either on the stove or to plug in. If I'm hanging around the campsite I leave the burner on low or leave the pot plugged in. Once I turn the stove off or unplug the pot I immediately put the coffee in the thermos.

You can't see it in the picture but the thermos has a nice handle as well as a strap. When I leave the campsite it's either in my hand or over my shoulder. I purchased the nice little thermos at REI.

Creek coffee. Boil the water, pour in the grounds and let them settle to the bottom before drinking. If you don't do it right, it taste like it's name.

Fancy-shmancy coffee maker

Hi all,

Like most people, we use a French Press for the most part. Last year we added this neat piece of gear - it's the most posh part of our camper! It's calle the Brunton BrewFire. It works off of a propane cylinder and needs 2 batteries for the ignitor. Only problem,if the ignitor fails, there is not a manual option to ignite. Stupid design flaw. SO we always carry loads of coffee, backup batteries and of course the french-press just in case!

Joy.... Is the elec. perk on the right a poly perk?? That sure looks like the one my parents always used in every rv we had while I was growing up. I've actually looked for one - just for nostalgia's sake - to use in the Scamp (when I get one!) and they are worth some dough on ebay!

Well, I see from the original post that we've been discussing this topic for almost six years.
I hope the OP found something that works for them by now.
It's actually kind of amazing to read thru the variety of ways to prepare morning coffee.

HAHA, yes, I've also wondered if the OP has had enough java options

I've long thought about ordering this, but would love to see one in person first. Actually, I think this is a slight upgrade from another model I've considered, but basics are the same. Good espresso on the go is a tough find!

The huge difference between the aero press and a standard press is that the rubber plunger is so tight fitting that it virtually self cleans. It compresses the coffee into a "pod" for ejection & with a quick swipe the plunger rubber itself is clean. The French press has a loose fitting plunger, does't compress the coffee in the bottom and you pour with the grounds and coffee still in contact (therefore pouring mud if not careful)
It was a no-brainier switch for us.

Making coffee

Melitta & French Press are my constant companions for coffee. I like dark roast Tully's or Starbucks. I grind it at home and bring it camping in a screw top plastic jar.
1... I heat the water to 190f
2... put coffee in the French Press and pour in water, wait 4 minutes, plunge the press and it's ready to drink.....just about the same with
the Melitta, only no plunger.
I am back to a glass F. P. , had a plactic one and it cracked all to heck in one season.

Clever Coffee Dripper. French press coffee with the convenience of a drip filter. You'll never go back.

I use a stainless French-press (no breaking! great insulation! *cough*...expensive...)



Also, I'm a HOME ROASTER! There is plenty of home-roasting info available on the inter nets. I use an air-popcorn popper at home. You can use an old fashioned manual crank popper over flame though. I haven't tried it, but I plan to sometime. BRAVE THE SMOKE!

Ah, that sounds good. Though I would still prefer something that uses sealed pods or k cups for the fresh factor.

How is this anything like French Press? The soaking part? I would worry about how cold it would get while you are making it.

It's similar to a French press because the extraction/brewing process is exactly the same. That is, you let the coffee remain in contact with the hot water for as long as you want (3-5 minutes, just like a French press). Then when brewed to your satisfaction you put the device on a cup, it releases the stopper, and the coffee quickly drains through a filter into the cup. Cleanup consists of discarding the filter. Only thing different than a French press is you don't get the fine grounds and turbidity of French press coffee and clean up is much easier.

The Melitta drip filters are great except most of them allow the water to drain through the grounds much too quickly. They produce underextracted coffee. This device solves that problem.

Its easy to keep it hot during the brewing process by simply covering it with a small plate. I suppose you could also use an insulated tea pot cozy.

Simple way to make great tasting coffee.

A morning without coffee is like sleep.

I believe humans get a lot done, not because we're smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee.(Anon)

Sleep is just a symptom of caffeine deprivation.
