According to the Aeropress experts 185 F is the perfect water temp for brewing good coffee. Any hotter and you risk having high acids being released.

I can make up to four cups of coffee at one pressing. Of course it is harder to press than a single cup. I just put the Aeropress on top of a two cup straight sided measuring cup (from IKEA). After pressing add additional 185 °F water to fill to the two cup measure and then pour equal amounts into cups, then add additional water to taste for an Americano style coffee. For eight cups I would do two pressings in a row into the measuring cup, pour out as much concentrate as I needed and add hot water for the Americano. Keep the concentrate warm in a thermos for more coffee later and add hot water to taste.

Just a reminder that there is tons of previous discussion about all of this on the threads linked in Post #3:

The first thread linked above has over 100 posts, and lots of discussion about techniques which work while boondocking without electrical power.

We boil water in a tea kettle, and use a Melita drip filter over either a cup or a carafe for larger quantities.

Keep It Simple . . .

Good luck!

Peter

We use a stainless steel press. I roast my own beans! I buy beans in bulk, then roast them! Best way to make coffee! Water quality on the road can be an issue!
For quick coffee, we also have the small Nespresso! Easy to get your fix and go!

Exactly.

The worst part of this new Internet-by-phone age, is that very few folks ever read the beginning of thread, let alone several pages of a long thread.

They mostly look over on the right for recent discussions, then hit Reply, and start TALKING!

Hi Peter,

The problem with resurrecting old threads with a new post is that people complain about that too.

Let 'em complain! At least there is some continuity of information and dialogue when an old thread gets some new life in it.

Not to mention, how outdated can a thread on making coffee get?



In other forums with more active moderating, posters would be asked to be more diligent about matters like this IMO.

The bottom line to these eyes is that people are lazy -- IMO -- and seldom search for answers, or earlier threads, before they post. As I said:

"When in doubt, talk!"

This collapsible coffee drip filter holder is great.

1-use the percolator you already have, empty, to heat the water.
2-get a large stanley stainless thermos. They have no glass to break, and are virtually indestructible.
3-use a standard paper cone filter to line the coffee drip basket.
4-heat water, pour over and drip right into the thermos.
5-as you will soon learn, another issue with boon docking is no way to KEEP coffee hot or to REHEAT it. The thermos solves this.

The only clean up is to rinse off the holder and rinse out the thermos.

Tip. Measure the water before adding so you don't over-fill. A nalgene bottle works great for this. Heat the correct amount of water. For added safety I usually stand up the thermos in the sink when pouring the water, in case I spill any hot water.

Another tip. This set up lets you make coffee for later and keep hot in the thermos. Good if you need to leave really early in the morning. Sometimes I make it right before bed.

No cleanup? Keurig.
No waste and one cup? French press.
I use a little more water than I need so I can squish the water around and dump the grounds.
Large volume? Coffee maker.

Hi

The most relevant coffee pot thread has been "dead" for about 2 weeks at this point. Popping into it is a bit different than coming up with one from 1972

The bigger issue is that searching for threads / thread organization isn't quite as good as it might be. We also dive off into odd places down in the bowels of various threads .... like ... ummm .... right now

If you think the "talk don't look" thing is fun here .... checkout a Facebook support group .... yikes !!!

Bob

The old search function was not great, that is true.

The NEW search function with the blue border above works great, however, and you can fine tune the search parameters after the Google-powered search results come up.

I have suggested this so many times I am blue in the face!

What else is everyone using?

Thanks!
I've edited your query done to what my best half picked up as main requirements.

We've amassed a fairly diverse collection of perc's 5, drip-o-lators 3 and another 2 that really doesn't have a common name but no press systems.

But the simplest, minimal cleanup, stove top, open campfire is Cowboy Coffee.

The pot has one part, the lid.

Boil water in it, reduce heat to very slow roll, add coffee, stir, rolling slow boil for 5-6 minutes, remove from heat and allow it to sit a few minutes.

Minimal rinse out and wipe down.

And those that haven't tried or experimented with Cowboy Coffee, hold your reports. That would be like me putting down a french press when I've never tried it. My 11 qt MirroWare Cowboy pot has quite the reputation from folks at Alumalina.

We use our favorite perc pot, a Pyrex Flameware 9 cup every weekend over a Coleman.
