Java delisioso???

For all you boondockers out here I have a coffee question. Is the preferred method of making the morning brew via good old fashioned percolator or is anyone using the 12volt coffee maker. I would imagine the regular 110 AC would be to much for the inverter recepticals.

If we don't have a power hookup, we use a percolator.

I don't like percolated coffee, so when off the grid I use a french press.

French press stainless double wall insulated 8 cup by Bodum. Have also seen a Starbucks insulated one. Bought a neoprene lunch sack at TJ Maxx that it fits in side for travel and to also keep coffee hot longer.

When you know and use the correct procedure for making coffee in a percolator, you can't tell the difference between it and an electric drip coffee maker. It's especially easy on a gas stove.

My only complaint is I can't find a 12 cup percolator.

French Press is my preferred way to make coffee when AC is an issue. I also have both a Keurig and Nespresso for those times when power is not an issue. I usually have one of them in the trailer.

There's another thread that's run for years on the same question. Seems to be an endless debate - like which hitch is better or what the perfect tow vehicle is.

When I was growing up the coffee maker of choice was a GLASS vacuum coffee maker. A Rube Goldberg invention if ever there was one. 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?

Years ago, before AS, when we tent camped, I bought a one cup 12v coffee pot to plug into the car. The cord got very hot and it popped the fuse in the car. They may have improved. You could buy one. Try it in you AS before you go camping. Monitor the battery. Take it back if it drains to much battery.

We use French Press when not plugged in.

Thanks for the once lost memory. My parents had one. I use to watch it in amazement. Never knew what it was called though.
