Nissan also makes a stainless steel, insulated press pot. We have been pleased with ours.

Ditto Paddy's comments. Doesn't get any easier or better tasting than this! (although your choice of roasted coffee beans, freshly ground of course...why sacrifice just 'cause you're camping.....will make a difference.)

Got an 8 cup French press. It is glass, so we store in its original box when not used. Makes great coffee, simply, with convenience. It's no trouble to wash out the grinds then swoosh the press clean in a bucket. Wish I'd known they come in stainless steel, though.

Heck, Myron, why not pop for an egg-only, stainless steel, insulated press pot? No more breakage worries, throw-it-in-the-bin storage, plus the inestimable advantage of keeping the coffee hot longer.

We use a glass press pot at home, and even with careful handling I manage to break it every 6 or 8 years. But the coffee is so good compared to all other methods, that I'm willing to pay the breakage cost!

Ah, oui! We finally got a very good deal via ebay store on the BonJour French Press, 8 cups. is polycarbonate so is 'guaranteed not to break under normal use and care". Since I am very careful with most our stuff--our camping utensils are 30+ years old! ha--should last till we can't read the instructions! Took it to the PineKnot Rally and worked like 'le charm-a-vous' so very happy. may bring electric kettle next time so i won't somehow make the smoke alarm go off. (Stupidly put it by the bunk bed area. will move) Really like the press. and yes, it's so french, the whole other side of tiny instructions is in (but of course!) French!
I feel so cool!
thanks for all the advice. I am in your debt! I owe you all a terrific (and French) cup of coffee next time we meet! Just say "Oui, Oui!" and I'll get the cups! Bon jour, mes-a-meese!

I'm suprised that nobody has mentioned the Italian method of coffee making, the Bialetti aluminum expresso maker. If you use the usual amounts of water and coffee, it will make great coffee and not expresso. Simple and quick with little to clean up.

I don't know about your smoke detector, but some have a sensitivity setting. You might want to look for that.

I thought the directions called for boiling water. That's as hot as it gets.
