We use the Starbucks Via packets when camping. I stock up on them at Costco. We used to use a glass, then stainless french press - but I prefer the Vias because they are neater and take up much less room than a single-task item like a press.

Another vote for Starbucks Via. Easy and although a little pricey the quality is there. I would rather fish then wait for my coffee to be ready.

Melitta drip cone system. Wonderful coffee anywhere you can make hot water. Easy clean up, make one cup or a full pot. Inexpensive at any department store including K-Mart, Wal-Mart, etc. Comes in all different sizes.

Comparing Melitta and Chemex, it looks like the exact coffee result except with Chemex the coffee maker is also the carafe, one less item in the cupboard.

Chemex filters are heavier than Melitta filters, keeping more of the oils back. This makes for a very clean, bright coffee. Both systems make great coffee, just a matter of personal preference. Melitta coffee is closer in character to French Press coffee.

Also, the Melitta system is available in plastic, so perhaps easier for use on the road.

I am a huge Chemex fan at home, but for the trailer we've picked up an Aeropress. I am worried about the Chemex glass carafe breaking.

For my Airstream, I rely on a Bialetti Moka Express stovetop coffee maker - it makes a strong, european-style brew (6 cup for 1-2 people). I also have a Bialetti Brikka for espresso (and a battery-power milk frother stick). And a Bialetti Mukka to make a latte on the stove (no need for a separate frother). For home, the best coffee is from a Bodum Santos vacuum pot (closely followed by a french press) - but it is too fragile and takes up too much space for the trailer. The only coffee obsession I haven't gotten around to yet is the Chemex...

I am exactly the other way around, I haven't tried the Bodum vacuum yet.

Every time I see one I am really tempted, but have yet to device a way to smuggle it past the wife who already rolls her eyes at my coffee toy collection.

I normally use a French Press but one day I'll spring for an Otto...made in Australia...and it goes well with an Airstream:

We have been using a coffee pot from Cabela's similar to this: Cabela's Stainless Steel Cool Touch Coffee Pots : Cabela's

However, recently, I was shown the error of our ways when I had coffee from a Bialetti and I have since switched over completely at home to the 9 cup version.

Bialetti USA | Moka

If you do try this, stick with the tips in this Amazon review.

Amazon.com: T. Speidel's review of Bialetti 6800 Moka Express 6-Cup Stovetop ...

Not the fastest or the most quantity, but quality is awesome.

Oh, and the great thing is that the temperature of the coffee when done is perfect unlike a french press where it normally gets cold or coolish.

and, it's magic the way that it suddenly shows up...

Pot Collection

Just for grins, the big one is a 44 cup coffee boiler, no internals. The middle is an aluminum perc and the one on the right is the SS perc that we use every weekend just like you see, almost always over the old Coleman stove enjoying the morning. The boiler is a group pot, get it boiling, remove from heat, add grounds and stir then a low rolling boil for about 5-6 min, remove from heat, let it sit for a couple then line 'em up. Most likely get fired up at Amumalina this Sept. BTW the SS is still hot, getting 2nd cup next.

Nice flexible set! And the last few cups from the big one get a bonus! If you drink with your teeth clenched you can stop some of the grounds! ;-) - Brad

I gave the Aeropress a try and now it is all I use. Just hot water from the stove, and coffee is great. I also have a collection of 4 or 5 coffee appliances stuck in a closet gathering dust. They are all destined for the recycler. I will keep the Aero and go camping.
