They are all (except one) based on adding boiling water to grounds. The big one is a three section aluminum drip pot consisting of a top section for the boiling water, a center basket for the filter and grounds, and a large bottom pot to hold the brewed coffee. It will make about 6-10 oz cups. Next is a Melita one cup filter, great for making one insulated mug of coffee, with very easy clean up. One is an Italian expresso maker, making coffee with steam that fits in those Little Bitty cups that hold about two thimblefulls of very strong stuff. The last is the French Press. I also have the metal one, that makes about two good size cups, or can be used as an insulated mug. And I also carry an old fashioned coffee grinder (yes, the kind with the crank on the top).

Now you see why I had to get the Scamp 5th Wheel, only way to carry all the coffee makings.

All of these beat making anything drinkable out of those "crystals" they call instant coffee.

We must have been separated at birth. I also carry several different coffee pots, most from 2nd hand stores but I did buy one new Paula Deem model.

Leave it on a HOT stove all day?? Horrors! I can still remember the nasty stuff in our geology field office when I was on a crew back in the 70's. I swear you could use that stuff to etch steel.

I have a little camp stove percolater that I've used a few times but I cant seem to get the right size grounds so they end up working their way thru the little openings in the bottom of that tray (not a big fan of chewing my coffee). So now I just use a little 4 cup coffee maker. There's nothing like a baileys and coffee to wake you up before starting breakfast.
Note to self, better stock up on baileys before the 3rd annual Manitoba rally at St. Malo Provincial Campground in August.

I use an old "6 Cup" Revere Ware percolator with similarly oversized holes in the basket. I get the flat Melitta™ coffee filters that line the basket or the ones that fold into a little pouch in the basket. I never have to worry about grounds regardless of the grind.

I've tried cutting a little hole in a regular coffee filter to fit around the stem but that didnt work either.

Sweet, I have never seen or heard of them before. I'll look a little harder next time I'm shopping. Thanks for the heads up.

Those filters have been getting a little harder to find over the years, but you can still find them, just not everyplace and not very prominent. I think I have picked them up at Kroger the last couple of times. Which may not apply to Manitoba

A couple of drips of water to wet the paper filter after putting in the basket gets the paper "stuck" to the bottom of the basket which seems to do a better job of keeping the grounds from getting under the filter when filling.

Taking the basket of grounds out once the coffee is done perking will prevent steam condensation from pulling a lot of extra "bitter" from the grounds. Especially if keeping warm by the fire or reheating. But I often use our 1qt thermos to keep the rest of the pot warm for later. We have it for travel anyway...
