Best Coffee Solution - Newbie Question

I was hoping to get some advice on the best coffee pot, instant coffee, etc. I don't drink coffee but my husband does. So far, he has been using instant packets where you heat the water in the microwave. He likes a dark coffee and when I asked him how it was he said "ok". I'm thinking he doesn't like it. He only drinks a few cups each morning but he really enjoys his coffee, well usually...

The little 16' Sport we have doesn't have tons of extra space or counter space for that matter. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You'll get lots of suggestions... But we use a Farberware percolator that makes great coffee on the cook top...we can have it when dry camping or when we have hookups ... don't need electricity for this one!

Here are about a zillion ideas.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f484...ler-48811.html

Anything that's flexible is best. (Campfire, propane stove, induction burner, etc.) I have a teapot that boils water for whatever purpose - French press for 4 cups of coffee, and a very fine metal cone filter that plops right onto a big single mug. Like the Keurig packs? Dump one in the leetle metal filter!

Good Morning...Finding a coffee maker was #1 on my list of 'must haves'. We purchased a Coleman stove top drip coffee maker. It sits on top of the propane stove and brews similar to a standard Mr. Coffee maker. No electricity needed - only propane.

We too are coffee "addicts" so in addition to our Capresso, we carry a Chemex for those times we have to depend on the stove to boil the water.

We aren't coffee addicts ..... but, for my wife, the morning coffee has got to not just be good - it has to be great.

It is my job (and the dogs) to make that happen.

After many years of trial and error I take the following arsenal with me on every trip; one of those smaller electric drip machines, a small percolator and a small French press ......

...... but arsenal aside ......

..... if we are within 10 KM of a Tim Hortons it becomes my sole mission in life (and the dogs) to get up and make the trek for the morning coffee - and return before Her Grace gets out of bed .....

Gotta love camping ......

We use a Melita #6 filter cone to make our coffee ((French Roast)) while on the road, and on our boat. The filter holder has a long 'spout' that fits directly into a Stanley thermos. It's simple, with little mess, and the coffee stays hot.

That sounds really easy. Is it a paper cone?

Yes, it uses the #6 paper cone. We had to hunt for the holder. Found it in a good kitchen store.

Can't beat a French press. We have a stainless one. Doesn't need a filter and the flavor is superior to perculators.

We tried the Coleman stove top coffee pot. It didn't work that well although I know a few have had great luck with it. It is not in our TT anymore.
We use a french press and we love it. It's small and easy to store. No filter needed and it's easy to get a strong cup of brew. If one one person drinks coffee, you don't need a big coffee pot. Try the french press, they are inexpensive too.
