Your induction burner may get to 375, but water never gets above 212.

Never.

At 212 the water goes through a change of state, and becomes a gas -- water vapor which we call steam. If you put the steam in a pressure chamber, it is possible to get it very hot indeed, but you can't pour that as a liquid.

An espresso machine generates steam which is probably hotter than 212 which may be why coffee made that way tastes differently.

The apparent confirmation that your technique of "hotter water" produces better coffee may be an example of some kind of confirmation bias, or some such deal . . . [IMO]

Hi

This is one of those Europe vs US things. In Europe the magic number is indeed 185 (or lower). The US likes coffee hotter and a bit more bitter.

Carry on.
Thank you X10000. YES! I cannot tell you how unwelcome and discourteous it feels to read the words "There's a ton of threads on this already. Use the search engine" that have been barked back at me for asking a simple question about Airstreams or camping (isn't that what this site is for?)

My goodness. I do use the search engine and either the replies to the subject were so outdated or irrelevant, I asked as a brand new thread hoping for newer and better responses (which happened yea!). It is possible to skip threads one feels has been asked before.

Rather general statement. Not this "US". I like my coffee smooth and aromatic.

We also like Nespresso. We have a Nespresso Pixie in the trailer that makes a great cup of coffee or espresso with easy cleanup. It works fine off our batteries when boondocking. We also carry a Melita pour over with filters in case of no electricity. With the right coffee and water it also makes a great cup. Mike

Hi

I'm very much with you on that part !!! I've even gone as far as looking into importing European parts for coffee machines to get the temperature down. Each time I go through the process I get a "... but nobody in the US likes coffee that way ..." at some point.

Bob

We bought one of the pour over filter holders that use the small #2 filter. I can't imagine it getting easier to clean than that.

We'll give it a shot.

Great cup and less mess...

I've been in the coffee business for the last 15 or so years so I take my coffee seriously, as most people do. It's almost a personal thing.
I've used and sold many methods of brewing, including Keurig, about 15 years ago.
For coffee ☕️ in the trailer, I wanted a quality cup with easy clean-up. I didn't want to use up my fresh water or fill up my gray tank. French press was too messy and I don't really like the solids in my coffee.
So...I now use a Clever brewer. It works like a French press with the mess staying within a #4 filter inside of it. You can check it out on Amazon.
It looks like a large Mellita pour over. The Melita is my second choice. Simple and clean.
I do need to try the Aeropress.

Doug and I determined years ago that the very best coffee was made with a percolator, and have carried on the road a good, stainless steel, stove-top unit...primarily used when boondocking or dry camping, perked 12 minutes. Yum.

Its downside is the length of time from turning on the flame to enjoying a cup, but the aroma of the percolating coffee mitigates the delay.

Yes! That's it. Coffee grind size is critical as well as the brewing method. You can start with a percolator grind size and see if you like it. Then go finer if you like.

Thanks, does the shut-off device work pretty well, so that the cone does not drip as you move it from mug to mug?
