Yep, we have a small aluminum that is sort of beat up, and a larger white correlle pot. Use depends on the weather and number of drinkers...

French Press

While doing some study on the coffee subject, I came across some interesting facts that might just turn my taste to prefer TEA!
One site of interest is:

How Coffee Raises Cholesterol

"Studies by a co-author – Dr. Martijn B. Katan of Vriye Univeriteit Amsterdam, Institute for Health Sciences, The Netherlands – indicate that consuming five cups of French press coffee per day (30 milligrams of cafestol) for four weeks raises cholesterol in the blood 6 to 8 percent."

What the site indicates is that the coffee should be filtered to lower the risks for those with cholesterol worries.
Cholesterol may not be an issue for you young active folks, but it sure is something that needs to be watched as we get older and stay closer to the camp fire.

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.

seems like a lot of trouble to brew, clean up, and a long wait for that first cup. And a lot of hardware to carry around.

I just throw a couple handfulls of instant coffee in the IV bag. Then I snort two lines of finely ground espresso so that my hand stops shaking long enough to get the IV needle hooked up. Then I'm good to go for a few hours.

Gringo, putting some instant under your tongue, or in your cheek is cleaner, easier, faster, and no tracks Besides, trying to keep your eyes open and focus to start the needle can be a challenge at times. Our old pots are reliable and can be multi tasked, but best of all is the aroma. The smell of fresh brewing coffee just seems to get the day started right.
Now if I can just convince my wife that it's ok for the inside of the cup to be a little brown we'll be ok

Unfiltered coffee might raise your cholesterol, but it also reduces your risk of cancer. So what's worse?

We use a Nissan stainless steel, vacuum insulated French press in the Tin Pickle; simple and easy. A drip coffee filter would be faster to clean, but this is doesn't require any attention after filling once.

I've got one of those as well. We use it when boondocking. I like my coffee.

I do it the hard way as well. Nissan press and my favorite cup is from an Italian coffee pot (a 12 cup) that only makes 2 1/2 American cups.
