I know. The stovetop percolator is just so slow.

This is not just any instant coffee, mind you. It is very, very good, and having cream and sugar already in it is so very handy.

I vote 4 cup French press. Easy, small and light weight.

We love a French press but it was pretty messy from a clean up perspective. DW snagged a small keurig and that serves the purpose really well. Small footprint, quick to make, a breeze to clean up and we both have our favorite blends.

Ah, so many different styles of camping out there. This coffee question brings all them to light.

We, the wife and I, usually boondock. We believe in the KISS principle so have settled on the good old fashioned stove top percolator. We like the taste and we don't have to depend on electricity.

I also have a french press that I will use when I am out fishing on my own. The drawback on this is that if I make 3 cups, it gets cold before I can drink all of it. One of those chemistry lab beaker looking things look real promising but we like our coffee hot so the last cups wouldn't be so good for us. I guess we could empty the coffee into a pan on the stove but then that defeats the KISS thing I like so well.

At home we use a drip machine and we like it. Out camping we perk the coffee and like that too. It takes about 10 minutes to bring it to a boil, longer when really cold out, and another 10 minutes to perk. I get up, turn the stove on and get back into bed and think about all the cool things I am going to do.

Hot water through coffee in a paper filter makes the best tasting coffee and in fact there's been some tests done which showed that water at 192º (rather than boiling) makes the very best tasting coffee.

I like my cup of french roast in the morning made strong enough to stand a spoon. ☺

I agree with your coffee strength...don't waste the water!

Having had many cups from canteen on camp fire is great! Just put grinds in canteen with some water, heat, shake and enjoy! If you insist, put a rag over spout and pour into a cup to "filter"..

We love the Aeropress as well although it only makes one cup of coffee at a time. Below is a video on how easy it is. Cleaning up is a snap!

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.

I normally use a French Press for making my coffee. Recently I bought a Nespresso machine. It makes the best coffee I have had in a long time. It is quite small and takes little counter space. Along with the Nespresso Aeroccino Plus it will going with me from now on.

I am thinking about getting myself an Aeropress. Really light and sturdy, no glass to break, and the reviews are fantastic.

I still love my Chemex, but I might just give this a try.

All the Keurig, Tassimo etc machines are just adding more junk to the environment. I don't feel guilty about tossing out a paper filter, but these plastic pods are another matter altogether.

And oddly enough, not NEARLY the heat of a hitch debate! :-)

Conclusion: Apparently Airstreamers now have TWO universal truths in common:

1) no - you can NOT borrow my Airstream

2) coffee is crucial no matter how its brewed.

Stay coffee-thirsty my friends....

I have electricity. I used to have a French Press, but after I broke the glass twice I started making coffee in quart canning jars. I get Cameron's Organic French Roast coffee beans from Amazon (free shipping), grind them and put 3.5 heaping tablespoons of coffee in the quart canning jar with a pinch of salt. That gets rid of any bitterness. Poor in the almost boiling water, swirl it around and let it sit for about 4 minutes like a French press. Pour this into another quart canning jar through a fine strainer. Add more boiling water to the giant enamel cup and voila!
