I know we all love our coffee, but I had some issues that made me need to kick the caffeeine. Decaf was ok,but I found a newer product called TEECCINO, that has no tea or coffee in it.
Brews like coffee and is very dark and rich. Great flavor, and now my daily drink.
I especially like the mocha and amaretto flavors. Found it online, and also in my local Whole Foods.

Teeccino Caffeine-Free Herbal Coffee / Coffee Substitute Coffee Alternative

Resurrecting the coffee maker question

Coffee maker research....brought me to Consumer Reports and CoffeeGeek.com for information on a good single serve or smaller capacity coffeemaker to travel with. Like full bodied coffee, not weak and not espresso. Must be hot. Must be easy to make and clean up.

The "Pods" seem very nice, but too big, too costly and not strong enough.

Currently using an insulated french press and/or a stainless steel perk coffee maker. I like both, but wondered if there's anything better?

Have you used and have an opinion on;
1. Black & Decker Brew'N Go?
2. Melitta Take 2?
3. Black & Decker SmartBrew?

I have managed to break anything breakable like the two cappucino makers, drip maker and anything glass.....

We used to do the French Press thing. Glass and plastic. Too messy and too much soap/water involved for use in the Airstream, though.

The easiest we've found is Melitta One Cup Cone: https://shop.melitta.com/itemdy00.asp?T1=64+0008&Cat=

Boil water on burner or in microwave; no clean-up there. Pour water through the cone, then throw the filter away grounds and all. Because it drips directly into your cup/mug, there is no pot to clean. Very little soap/water needed to rinse the cone.

I can actually get a lot more than "one cup" out of it. The cone is cheap and filters by other manufacturers can be found at discount stores. You can make it as strong or as weak as you like and you can use any coffee you like without being stuck with whatever pods happen to be available.

We switched back to Community Coffee. The coffee is good, the price can't be beat and the shipping is free on any order over $50.

Nespresso

After living in Europe for a short time we became accustomed to drinking "small" coffees, i.e., expressos. However, we do occasionally like a larger amount of coffee and this machine will do that too.

https://secure.nespresso.com/precom/...0_1_us_en.html

Of course we have to use their coffee as it comes in a unique capsule designed for the machine but it makes a perfect cup every time, the footprint is very small and there is no mess.

https://secure.nespresso.com/precom/...sso_us_en.html

Plus if you buy their milk frothier (Aerocinno) you get a perfect cappuccino to boot.

Although your post is not intended to be funny, I'm sitting here laughing. The timing is perfect. I just turned my Nespresso machine on and it wouldn't pump. So, I've had Nespresso on my mind! I finally pulled out the manual and figured out what was wrong. I haven't used it in a while and the pump needed to be primed. It's fine now - so, here I am sipping a cup of coffee and reading messages.

I've tried several espresso machines - Braun, Krups etc etc. They all ended up in yard sales over the years. Then we bought a Nespresso - it is by far the best. The espresso is perfect with a perfect layer of "crema" on the top every time. It's fast and easy. We also have the C100. I thinks it's the perfect model. We didn't get the AEROCCINO though. I use one of these instead... Williams-Sonoma | Primo Milk Frother I had it already and it works well so I didnt get the Nespresso frother. Another one that works well is the Frabosk frother Frabosk Milk Frother - Accessories - Coffee & Tea - Sur La Table I got mine a few years ago in Italy for a LOT less!

I have a feeling that the Nespresso is going along with us on our summer trips in our new 'stream.

We purchased an old fashioned coffee pot in aluminum just like the Airstream and just let it perk on the gas burner. Makes the best coffee anyhow in our opinion. OR.....get a giant one, throw some grounds in the water, put it on the campfire and make real "Cowboy Coffee"!

Oh, this is my thread, I do believe! I am a full-fledged coffee snob. We will be full-timing in a few months, and I spend a disproportionate amount of time thinking about how to keep my coffee experience on the road as "quality" as it has been at home. I won't even list the amount of equipment we have in our kitchen (it's ridiculous). Trying to keep it as boondocking-freindly as possible. I've narrowed down our airstream supply to:

- 8-cup Bodum french press

- Mokka pot (possible future upgrade to a handpresso or myPressi (any feedback? Mokka pot doesn't taste like espresso to me, just super-strong coffee)

- Burr Grinder (still debating on whether to get a hand-grinder, or stick with an electric grinder. Either way, I have to buy a new one, because our home one is huge. Whatever it is, it has to be a step grinder, because it'll frequently be sharing duty between find grind and course grind).

- Stovetop steamer. I love my lattes and cappuccinos, and this is actually what inspired me to post here today, because I haven't seen these mentioned. If you want to steam milk without a machine, everything points you toward a "frother". Frothing is just not the same as steaming. I finally ran across this stovetop steamer, ordered it and got it yesterday. I gave it a try this morning, and this thing steams milk better than my "pro-sumer " espresso machine. I am thrilled!

In terms of coffee roasts. My favorite coffee is a local roaster: Ritual Roasters. I'll miss them when they're no longer "local", but will be excited to try out all the other local roasters along the way.

KerriO, are you going to Casini Ranch in April? If you do, the bakery in Duncan's Mills roasts their own, it's very good.
