Using a press for coffee really brings out the flavor....and it is so easy. I watch carefully when I pour it because it will have some sludge in the bottom of the press that I don't like it my coffee mug. I am glad you have given up being a bag lady Carol...that's no way to live

Add some water, swish it around and dump into the fire pit.

Coffee press is the way to go. Started using them after my first trip to the U.K. about 12 years ago when the waiters would come around the table asking "White" or "Black". Press in each hand ,one with milk already in it. Instant coffee is like drinking .... I don't know.. but it's not coffee.

Toast with Coffee

Has been very interesting reading the many coffee solutions. We started with a french press as well, but gave up due to clean up. Now we use melitta filter stands. We either brew directly into insulated cups or a large insulated carafe. Have been considering the Coleman drip coffee maker to minimize the standing around in the cold with a tea kettle. Reviews outside this forum say that it makes good coffee but is slow, handle can get too hot if it in the wrong place, and some have problems with the filter basket popping out.

As for toast, we have a Coleman Camp Stove Toaster we use on the gas stove top. It's a metal disk with holes in it and 4 wire loops that hold the bread, bagel, etc. Not only is it cheap (about $3-4) at just about any camp supply store but it's light weight and folds almost flat.

Happy camping.

We use the Toddy method at home and we do the same on the road.
Toddy Coffee Maker at Toddy Cafe: Cold Brew Coffee, Acid Coffee Low, Coffee Brewer, Best Coffee Maker
You cold brew a pound of coffee at a time, to make a coffee syrup. To this you add hot water to make the coffee. It is low on acid and you can make alot or a little at a moments notice and each person can have the strength they like. If you like to buy green beans and roast and grind them yourself you can do that or you can have your local coffee house (Pete likes Tulleys) grind your choice on the espresso burr, and there you go.
So we just pack a Kleen Kanteen with the amount of syrup we will need for the journey and boil bottled water in an electric hot pot as needed.

1. You build you a big fire. Don't use no green or rotten wood or the smoke will git you. Stay upwind unless you haven't bathed recently.
2. Take a pound of joe and berl it real good in a blue enamelware coffee pot, for at least an hour.
3. Toss in a horseshoe or other similar heavy metal object such as a jack handle.
4. If it's a sinker, berl the java some more.

We use the single cup drip through a filter method. I actually prefer the french press, but have become convinced that the filtering takes some of the "bad" out of coffee and leaves all the good. Do a little homework, the evidence is not conclusive but I believe convincing enough to make one want to avoid pressed coffee on any type of regular basis. Even when I do a big Perculator pot full (for a group) I now put a filter inside the brew basket. Maybe it is over kill, but the less of this life I see before me the more precious each span becomes.

I grab a mouthful of coffee beans and chew 'em up... spit 'em out in a filter over a pot and add hot water... yarrrrrg matey!

Actually, do pretty much the same as at home but with a different brewer (Techni-vorm vs. GE). Buy at Anderson's Coffee (Guatemalan, paper filter grind) and perform the same ritual. Home away from home. This isn't complicated for coffee drinkers.

We use the same thing, only the Wal-Mart "Ozark Trail" brand, on the single-burner butane stove in our small sailboat. Works like a champ and takes almost no space.

Tracked down this pot in an "antique" store - straight out of the 70's to go with the trailer.

Thumbs up Smells Great Too

Another vote for the Chemex.......

Chemex

Straightforward, quick and makes a GREAT cup of coffee.

We still use the same one we bought in 1988 for our first A/S. Store it in it's

original box above the slide-out pantry. Never had a problem with breakage,

To keep it hot we just turn one small burner on low and off-set the carafe

so it's not directly over the flame. When on the genset or hook-up we use a

small Toastmaster hotplate. One small drawback, for the best results you

must use the Chemex filters. Of course, fresh ground beans of your choice

is a no-brainer.

AHH...sipsipsip

Coffee & camping are about as close to nirvana as one can get... (well, maybe with a bit o'whiskey in the evening, too ...). Back in the 70's, Anderson's Coffee co. opened up here in Austin & since it was close to where we lived, we could walk there and get coffee that was either bean or ground for you. Been going back there ever since.

At home, we use a Technivorm for brewing but since it would blow every fuse the A/S has if we used it there (it REALLY heats the water!), we do the Melitta into a krafe when boondocking. To keep it hot, we either pour the coffee into a thermos or put on low heat on the stove. When placing a glass krafe on the fire, you MUST use one of those metal heat dissipators (forget what they are called) to evenly distribute the heat and to prevent "burning" the coffee (makes it bitter). Works for us and keeps the flavor real close to what we wake up craving...

'Nuther good thing is clean up - either into the fire or trash - easy and if you run out of filters, a paper towel folded into quarters will pull you through!

For road trips, we have always used a butane gas burner, a pot of water and a French press.
