I use a "Lifetime" brand, stainless steel drip-o-later. Boiling water is poured into the top vessel and it drips through the grounds into the bottom vessel. It makes VERY good coffee.

They're a bit pricey if bought new from Lehman's hardware in Kidron, Ohio but it will last virtually forever.

Lehman's specializes in non-electric articles for the Amish community in the area.

They can be found on Ebay from time to time.

I can see that coffee is a delicious subject. . Luckily we have a month or so to decide on a perfect press/percolator/drip. We love a stronger coffee. The pondering continues.
Lily&Me---- Bayfield Wi is a beautiful area. The Apostle islands and the majestic beauty of the "big" lake is awesome. If one has never been here it should be on the "bucket " list.

One cup at a time......really?

Just use what you use at home. It will taste the same.

Took the ferry over to Madeline Island and camped at Big Bay state park. Did a little hiking and Geocaching and saw a mom black bear with four cubs.

Here's the stainless steel version of a vacuum maker - MUCH more practical for an Airstream. And you can probably figure out how the little stainless steel filter works too.

Might just get one for myself - that was some good coffee. Off to ebay!

My mother had a stainless steel one - and I've rarely if ever seen another. I'd try to describe it but there's a 5000 word limit per post. Basically the pot boiled water which forced it up into the top chamber. You turned off the gas or electricity as the pot completed pumping the water into the top. Then the hot water mixed with the coffee, and as the heat decreased a vacuum in the pot sucked the water back down. The top assembly was removed and there remained a pot of very good coffee. The Chemex - or any other pour over system seems to do the same with considerably LESS fuss. Of course they don't make the pour overs in 12 cup models do they?

I'm totally LOL right now ! My Dad use to refer to things,EXACTLY !!!! Rube Goldberg ! It's funny how a simple statement can take one back many,many years. Thankyou !
(for the records folks, there is no racial or nationality tone here...Please don't read one in. It just reminded me of Dad, R.I.P.

"Geo". Very unusual to see a bear with four cubs---awesome. We should start seeing them emerge from hibernation shortly. Time to put up the bird feeders.
AW-- looking for something when AC is not an option. I'm an early riser and even with a generator quiet time would interfere with my Java. .
Maybe once I'm retired for a few months I will be able to sleep in until 7 or so.

French press, 30 seconds off the boil, pour in and let sit one minute, then stir and let sit 4. Pour into a thermos.

If you want a cappuccino, rinse out the press, fill it half way with hot milk and pump the press until the milk has desired froth and voila.

I would make french press every day but it takes more effort and uses more coffee beans. Both are not ideal when getting ready for work and getting two kids out the door in the morning. Neither are an issue when camping.

None in my case. I'm a tea drinker, and DW prefers instant on the road. 😄
