We used to get the Hotel Blend on a subscription from Community. Then our tastes changed and we went to a darker Italian roast decaf from Spinelli (now Tully's) in San Francisco. Community Coffee is good stuff!

What about the water folks?

Joe is only as good as the liquid it's made from.

We use bottled, filtered thru a Brita pitcher.

We have built in filtration at home and will probably use a Brita in the AS.

Hi, in our Airstream, we always use bottled water.

Well - It looks like I'm going to go with a Chemex. I'm tired of being overbid on eBay and watching Revereware coffee pots go for outrageous prices.

Now I just need to figure out if I want a regular one or a hand-blown one.

Several posts about using bottled water in new trailers. Don't the newer Airstreams have a filter built into them like the 71 does..?

I just looked at the list of features on the unit that we're ordering and I didn't see anything listed for a water filteration system.

Coffee-wise, we try to drink home-roasted. We get our green from the extraordinary Sweetmarias, whose site is also a coffee education itself:

Home Coffee Roasting Supplies -Sweet Maria's


Hand-grind using a Zassenhaus knee mill. (This is probably just craziness, but I still like doing it).

Filter thru hand-pour Melittas, one per cup.

Water is plain old Cincinnati's finest, allowed to stand open for 48 hours to get rid of the chlorine. Damn near cost-free, and cleaner than most of the bottled H2O out there - and they provide a full analysis!

WOW!!! Now that's some hard-core coffee drinking! I'm genuinely impressed! Let me know where and when you camp. I want to park next door and come over for a cup!

by golly, it is tasty! but very timeconsuming, since most home coffee roasters only do 4oz at a time.

unfortunately, home-roasting is highly addictive. i'm not so much attached to my coffee as enslaved by it...

Either way you won't be disappointed. Just one small seam down the

side that ya can't hardly see. Keep the box it comes in, good for storage

and that long handle brush is handy for cleaning

Our 03 Classic has what I think is a PUR filter on the kitchen faucet.

We still use the Brita to filter all drinking water (bottled).

Great for coffee.
