In a pinch, I would. But you know I would much rather have one of the many great craft beers out there.

I do have class, albeit a bit tarnished in places.

Not yet, although a trip to Europe might be in the works. I also want to make a trip to Lethbridge Ab to see my Mom and Dad. That would take up most of my holidays at work. It would be just long weekend trips then.

Coffee making

1. Aluminum percolator. I enjoy the bloop bloop bloop.
2. Keurig. I also have a stainless screen basket for the Keurig so I can use ground coffee.

A moka pot will make a great cup. I have one and need to dig it out, as I also enjoy variance in my coffees.

But, do you ever use it? I know a few folks who have used this argument against the terrible waste of the pods and the fact the coffee is mostly quite stale, but none actually use it. If you are going to the trouble of grinding and cleanup it would seem one of the other non-electric options might be just as good, and take up way less space.

Chulux for me.

We use a single serve Chulux, similar to a Keurig but you add water for each cup. Uses the standard K Pods and the refillable ones as well. Small footprint and we love it. Used to carry a small drip pot but this has been better for us. We also carry a small farberware percolator for boondocking. We only paid $40 for it, notice it is pricier now but they do go on sale.

I do use it. I also use the “terribly wasteful pods” consoling myself that you don’t, and that I’m not using hot water and soap for cleanup.

The coffee in the pods has never been stale. Far more likely for coffee to get stale in bags and other containers which are opened and closed.

Not interested in a grinder.

I confess I use the pods when we are traveling, but at home I try to use the refillable pods. I like the "less clean up" approach when we are camping!

Sorry, this is what I was referring to as an espresso maker in my earlier post ... never heard it called a mokka pot before!

Bialetti is the original moka pot, and the brew is often referred to as stovetop espresso.

When Americans were fighting in Italy in WWII and drank this coffee straight, they couldn't handle it so added some hot water to it. Thus an Americano was born.

I mostly add some hot water to mine.

That’s an interesting bit of coffee history
I add hot water too, but maybe I’ll try adding some chocolate for a mokka!

Moka pot

Moka potManufacturerBialettiRelease date1933The moka pot is a stove-top or electric coffee maker that brews coffee by passing boiling water pressurized by steam through ground coffee. Named after the Yemenite city of Mocha, it was invented by an Italian engineer named Alfonso Bialetti in 1933.[1] Bialetti Industrie continues to produce the same model under the name "Moka Express."
Spreading from Italy, the moka pot is today most commonly used in Europeand in Latin America. It has become an iconic design, displayed in modern industrial art and design museums such as the Wolfsonian-FIU, Museum of Modern Art, the Cooper–Hewitt, National Design Museum, the Design Museum,[2] and the London Science Museum. Moka pots come in different sizes, from one to eighteen 50 ml (2 imp fl oz; 2 US fl oz) servings.[3] The original design and many current models are made from aluminium with Bakelite handles.

I have a Bialetti, it’s the one I keep in my trailer. I’ll have to check now to see if it’s called a Mokka, I’ve never noticed before. I have a stainless one that I use at home, it’s a different make, can’t remember what it’s called. And 3-4 larger ones that I’ve accumulated for when there’s a gang around.

... and now I know... The Rest of The Story!!

Not sure where or how adding chocolate to coffee became a mocha.

So I need a little help then. I want to switch and am deciding between the percolator and the moka pot. Which one is better? Easier to clean/maintain?

Thanks in advance!!
