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.

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

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.
