A few years back my wife and I took a week long raft trip through the Grand Canyon. On the trip the hosts prepared camp coffee every morning. Boil some water and throw in the ground coffee. Pour the coffee through a strainer and drink. That will get your motor running

Man, haven't any of you people heard of instant Coffee? Or if camping in Canada, there's a Tim Hortons on every block, everywhere.

Anyone use a pod system?
We bought a pod system from Nespresso. Makes espresso and lungos. Perfect for the "AirPod" . No grounds to deal with, simple operation and consistent results. Also got the Aeroccino to froth milk for cappuccino. Again perfect for on the road. Boondocking would have me using a coffee press though. Makes good coffee, but a little messy. I loved that a bunch of you shared your manual grinder finds. Going to have to get one of those for potential boondocking stays. Never know when that's gonna happen; we stayed at a campground last week and were without power for quite awhile . We originally bought the Nespresso to use in the A/S, but I'm so in love with it, we're not using our Saeco machine at home since purchasing the pod system . Thanks for sharing!

Now, another gustatory question. Anyone have any solutions for wine drinking? I hate drinking wine from plastic wine glasses ! We have been drinking beer instead of wine while camping because it already comes in a glass . It's been fun, but we'd really like to have a nice glass of wine with the great dinners we grill up, so any tips would be appreciated.

Perk Type over the open evening camping flame or over the propane stove.

I always bring a bottle of wine or two (well I live in wine country ) and I even have a small wine rack wedged in an upper cabinet. After breaking a glass wine glass I decided to go with plastic...actually plexigas type. They look like "real" wine glasses and people often say "oh they aren't glass?"

I also have some aluminum margarita glasses just in case...

So, you've done the broken wine glass thing eh? I was so tempted to take real wine glasses this past trip, stopped myself though. Had to leave the really "nice" bottle of wine home for celebrating Father's Day. Refuse to waste fine wine on plastic wine glasses. We did take one of our house reds and did the plastic wine glass thing. Rickety picnic tables and wine glasses don't mix. Glass breakage or grape spillage, both are equally tragic! Aluminum is always cool!

We use a percolator, then put the coffee into a thermos bottle. This eliminates the need to reheat the pot.

I got my first coffee press rather than a Mr. Coffee because it doesn't need electricity. Tried a trial caraffe this evening. It is messy. Any tips on how to clean it up while boondocking?

Carol,
After the coffee is gone I fill the press with water, swish it around and dump it. Most of the grounds are gone at that point so I fill with water and scrub it out with my hand, rinse once again and put it away.

Ditto... about half full, move my hand in a horizontal circle to get the water spinning, then dump it. Takes most of the grinds the first time.

Thanks Tom and Moe. This probably is silly but I wonder, are you dumping the water and the grounds outside or in the gray tank, or the garbage bag?

I have never dumped it down the grey tank. I usually throw the water and grounds in the weeds. Obviously I don't throw it where it will be a problem...it's mostly water anyway.

Thanks Tom. I have been a "bag" lady so long I didn't know just what to do.
