I got one for Christmas a couple of years ago. It's Starbucks and it works quite fine.
Starbucks Barista Thermal Travel Press®
Stainless Steel $22.95

You all have me hooked. I love coffee and have been a drip maker at home and out of desperation a perker when camping.
I just received my 16 oz. insulated French Press mug that I ordered on ebay.
The directions say 1 tblsp for each 4 oz., I used only 3.
It is the best, but strongest, cup of coffe that I have ever had.

Thanks again,

John

Hi: Why not wake up Mr. Coffee and let him make your cuppa!!! And while he's busy Aunt Jemima can start breakfast...Then it's Mr. Cleans turn to wash up...and while you sleep in Duncan Hines and Betty Crocker could start lunch... For dinner it's Uncle Bens turn and you haven't even been out of bed yet Is it crowded in here or is it just me Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie

Wow So many different ways to make coffee. My mother who was born in 1900 worked many years for cook houses both for loggers and for road building outfits. There were times in the first days of sitting up camps that cooking was done over a camp fire. A huge pot of water was sit on the coals with about a lb or so of coffee grounds, when it almost boiled over it was yanked off and sit on a hot rock to simmer or keep warm. When I was a child (not SO many years ago) we often followed my father to where the Trees were being felled. My mother used a gallon can on the fire pit to boil coffee the same way using pliers to lift it off and pour after it sat a few minuets. The first cup always contained a few grounds and was called the "courtesy" cup because it was always offered to someone else. By the time the coffee was finished of course it was a little thick then someone would dump the grounds and start over. Coffee was on the camp fire all day and offered to anyone who visited the camp (Now that is hospitality lol)

The simplest, quickest, cleanest, cheapest is the paper filter in the plastic cone with stove water poured through it. No fuss, no muss -done.

Our 110v "drip" coffeemaker has a thermal carafe (so it doesn't have or need a heating element underneath) and the top swings backward so you can fill the cold water resevior and put in the coffee grinds and filter. The upshot of which is I can also boil water on the propane stove and manually pour it through the grinds when we're dry camping.

I use one of these "chorredaors" I discovered in Costa Rica. The coffee from one of these simple lil devices is muy excellente'! Just put some freshly ground coffee in the cotton "sock" at the top, put your cup underneath and pour boiling water through the sock. Simple.

The wire stand pulls out of the wood base, so it takes up practically no space at all in the lower cabinet of our '72 Trail Mite.

Yes sir, you are spot on! I use the #4 cone filters (they are easier to grasp and I am less apt to make a big mess...) and a 1.5 cup Ball Mason jar for a recepticle, as I can keep track of the level... and also make an extra cup while the water is still hot!
I use this method at home... and when camping!
Having tried many methods of making coffee (except for those overly complicated/expensive/yuppy ones...) this works perfect for me.

DonInChatt,
Methinks it might be wise to darn the holes before brewing unless you enjoy chewing the coffee

I never get holes in the toe, just the heel, so I'm safe to make some good coffee.

"I think one possibility would be a Melitta drip thingy. Boil your water on the stove and pour it into this coffee grounds filled filter frame placed over your coffee pot."

I do the same but right over my coffee cup (using non bleached filters which are inexpensive). Percolated coffee is rarely done any longer. Bedsides tasting like #!*%, their may be a link from the high oil it produces and pancreatic cancer. I remember a lot of discussion about this starting in the 1970's.
