Stick with your press pot, Byron - the consensus of coffee cognoscenti is that press pots make the best java!

Check: http://www.ico.org/making_coffee.asp - "The plunger method, said to have been invented in 1933, extracts the most flavour from the ground beans."

And you can't beat it for convenience, either.

Ya, I really like the coffee out of the press. I'd complain about the clean up, but since Anne takes care of that, it works great for me. She doesn't seem to mind the clean up. I guess we'll stick with that.

Hi,

I saw the story on the TV.

We have the coleman too and it makes great coffee. It is just too slow. I have a small 2 cup pot for a quick cup in the morning.
I am taking 2 of my grandsons camping this weekend. I will set the coffe pot up the night before and make sure the kids turn on the stove when they get up. They are always up before me.
John

That's how I do it. Can light the stove practically from under the covers.

Yup, that's how it's done at my house. Not so in my Scamp Kerby doen't like his Scamp to be near the right kind of current bushes. (See avatar for a picture of Kerby). Anne don't like "cowboy" coffee. So what's a guy to do?

About percoloated coffee, the ICO (International Coffee Organization, flagship of the world coffee trade) says this:

"There is possibly no worse way to make fresh coffee than this."

After reading all these posts about coffee, I was motivated to jump in the car and drive down to the Kitchenware Outlet and buy a French press coffee maker. I'll probably be up all night from the caffeine (Lite!) but it really was good! Of course, after I put in the creamer and skim milk, purists would say go ahead and drink instant.

We bought this today. French press and stainless steel double walls to keep it warm.

I'll be looking for one like your next! Mine is glass--not good for camping or keeping warm very long.

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

A tip for new press pot users: if you encounter too much resistance when pressing down the filter, just pull it back up a quarter inch. This unclogs the filter openings and makes it easier to finish the press. According to the people who grow, process and export coffee worldwide, the press pot "extracts the most flavour from the ground beans." Bon appétit!

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.)
