Boondocking Drip Coffeemaker

Picked this up on the Escapees site:

Coleman 10 cup Drip Coffeemaker

Sits on a stove burner. Sweet!

Melita has one that is a thermal carrafe; its like an oversized version of the "1-cup" thing-a-ma-jigs that sits on top of a coffee cup, and you pour hot water into it. so you need to boil water on the stove, but you get a whole pot of coffee that stays hot for a long time, without "cooking" it.

similar money, too...I think perhaps a little less.

Sounds nice

I especially like the fact that I could use a filter and not have the coffee-ground mess that I presently have to contend with with my percolator.

I just wish they made a 4-cup version. That's all we need to fill two mugs in the morning. The 4-cup Mr. Coffee we have takes up a lot less space than a 10-cup and fits in the appliance garage.

I'm surprised it took so long. I'll have to keep an eye out for one. That should get my wife who is not to "primitive camping friendly" along more.
If you think about it it works on the same principle as a purcolater. The boiling water needs to vent so it drives it up the pipe in the center. Drip is no different other than the the water only runs once through the grounds. Bet you could take a lod Coffemaker that gut the electrics. Tig a thick aluminum plate the coils and figure out how to insulate the body and make it work.

Talking Got One!

Was browsing through the camping section at Wally-World tonight, and they had 3 on the shelf, at $37.24. Haven't played with it yet.

LOL! That's what we have, and will probably keep until we start doin' more boondockin'.

The one time we did, and my wife found that neither the coffeemaker or the microwave would work without being plugged in, I put the carafe on the counter, swung out the filter holder over it, and poured hot water from a pot on the gas stove into the grounds while holding the sneak-a-cup lever up so the water would drain from it into the carafe.

Where there's a will, there's a way. Gotta have my coffee!

That thing looks pretty huge.

Can one of you who bought one take some measurements and post them?

Does it break down for storage?

Thanks!

Check this out:

http://www.melitta.com/cgi-bin/sgin0...5117&T1=64+251

6 cup for 20 bucks...ten cup for 24 bucks. no electricity needed. Intended to work just like your "emergency" method, only without the hassle. LOL!!


The caraffe will probably keep the coffee hot for hours. I have an electric coffee maker at home that brews into a caraffe like this. made a pot of coffee yesterday at 6 am....had a hot cup o' joe at lunch time.

Thanks! My wife loves her 4-cup Mr Coffee and says the Coleman's too big and I have to keep making coffee the McGyver way with the Mr Coffee LOL!

She'd already nixxed the Melita as a duplicate we can't afford to carry.
