The easy way to make coffee: "Wife, get me a cup of coffee!" No muss, no worries about methods.

Just kidding!

Our method: 2 1/2 Qt. percolator :make it the night before and pour into 2 quart-size thermoses (1 w/sugar, 1 plain)
Enough and then some to get started in the A.M.
Note: The old glass lined thermos keeps coffee hot for up to 12 hours. Newer stainless ones don't seem to hold the temp. as long.

Wow, we sure love our coffee, I've been off the board most of the winter and was surprised to see this topic still going!
(almost reminds me of that other hot topic (okra) ....

Stainless steel stove top perculator and fresh ground beans for me. Simple. Works. Doesn't depend on having power, and the pot does double duty for other water boiling needs.

Original post:

We are going on our first campout in our Scamp, and I have our old tenting camp utensils including a small coffee pot thing--but it has nothing inside. Am I missing parts i don't remember, or can you make coffee in this thing. Most rv sites say get a percolator pot for stovetop or campstove. I do have a french press, but it's glass.
any suggestions, recipes???
Make cowboy coffee, bring water to a boil, take off heat, put several tablespoons into water and let steep for about five minutes, if necessary a 1/2 cup of cold water may be added to settle grounds. Mm, mm, good. Marg in NW California

Okra ? Guess I missed that one - Tell me more....

Lainey, if you want something really simple and much better (not bitter) tasting than percolated try the coffee cone drip method talked about in several posts above.

Percolators basically boil the coffee, more acid and less flavor.

Pour hot water over the grounds from a kettle. Use the kettle any time for other things without having to scrub!

That being said, If you like what you do and it works for you, keep it up! One person's coffee is another person's mud .

I knew someone who said their taste in coffee was the same as their taste in partners - strong and bitter...

FiberglassRV was founded in 2002, and a computer hacker destroyed all of the topics and posts and replaced them with his own political rant in November of 2005. The founder had to totally rebuild the site and add several security measures. The "Legacy Posts" (minus their photographs which were un-recoverable) are all that remain from 2002 to 2005.
Up to that time, the Okra Thread was the longest thread on this site. (30 pages x 14 posts per page = 420 individual posts about Okra!)
Somewhere along the upgrades, the original Okra thread was lost.

I can't believe the okra topic has died
Okra thread re-started

Okra
Before the above was posted I too was curious about the "okra" reference. I had searched the forum, indeed finding over 400 posts. Mysteriously, however, while many of them contain the word, its occurrence is random and irrelevant to the thread. Is there an Okratist among us suggestively inserting "okra" here and there in an effort to overcome what is surely a Natural Human Aversion to eating mucus-secreting vegetables?
The "pot" thickens.....especially if it has okra in it!

I feel it's mandatory to have a jar of pickled okra at any NOG. So, I take it for all to enjoy. Pickled okra is more like a dill pickle and less like snot.

Is it crunchy?

No, itsnot...

I'd have more enthusiasm if you had said, "Not at all like snot"

Campfire coffee

Hi,
Use a percolator without the innards. Put coffee grounds directly into the water. Bring to boil. Pour cup of cold water on top. Grounds go to the bottom. Voila, great coffee!

Not that I'm spoiled or anything, but......

I take a 50/50 mix of Starbucks French Roast and light roast Columbian beans and fresh grind them for each pot of coffee. (the only thing I use an inverter for in my Boler is the coffee grinder).

Them I do the Melitta filter thing

Being a coffee addict it is lucky I can afford to be a gourmet about that ONE thing!

Oooooooooo, I like that. Double wall for keeping coffee warm. I have a couple of French presses and had each in the Scamp at one time or another. What I didn't like was that the coffee got cold quickly. Thin glass walls on a French press are not conducive to keeping the coffee hot. I like a large press so I don't have to keep fooling with making coffee over and over. But it's got to start hot/warm.

That stainless press appears large. Is it??
