Thumbs up The latest 'Coffee' addition....

I believe humans get a lot done, not because we're smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee.
~Flash Rosenberg

The burr in our manual grinder finally gave up. After quite a bit of research we settled on the Baratza Virtuoso 586.
I know it needs power.... but it does such a great job I will either pre-grind or start the genset for the ultimate cup.....morning priorities after all.

If you are in need of a grinder, home or AS this one does a great job!!!
40 grind settings, consistent results, easy clean & maint.

Nice design also.

Bob

We use a hand held grinder and a filter/cone over a big thermos. Water is heated in the kettle.

We don't have a generator. Our 200 watt solar array provides enough juice for our needs. This lets us make coffee whether we use the stove inside or the big propane bbq we bring along for longer trips. We could even make coffee without propane if we had a campfire.

Zassenhaus hand grinder. Made in Germany, incredibly efficient. Takes about 60 seconds to grind a full load by hand.



Ghillie Kettle:



No electricity needed.

I actually love using the ghillie. It boils a litre of water in record time, using just a bunch of twigs and scraps for fuel.

Hi, I will still stick with my two stove top percolators, one at home and one in my trailer. I have a Bodum burr grinder at home and it works great, but I still don't like cleaning it.

Hard not to be coffee snobs living in the PNW, but for traveling we tend to be more relaxed. At home, we use a Bonavita coffee maker, which is about as simple a maker as they come, but highly rated to produce a great cup. They get the water hot enough and saturate the grounds properly. The only drawback is getting the amount of grinds, and making sure the beans are coarsely ground.

On the road, I use one of two options: either bring a small Nespresso and companion frother/steamer, or use my moto-camping option of a portable grinders and a JetBoil (the one with the built in coffee press option). Makes a great cup in about 3 min. but not for indoor use.

I just got back from visiting my son. He has a new Television with a bizillion mega bites of bits that apparently make the picture nice. It looked good to me. We use an electric machine with a timer and a filter that we throw some pre-ground Starbucks dark roast into before we go to bed. It's secret is a thermal pot that keeps the stuff hot without cooking it some more so when I doze off for a few minutes in the morning, the coffee still tastes good to me. Helps to have solar. Just in case the system doesn't work, we have a bag of 13 year old Folgers on stand by for making cowboy coffee. I suppose that would taste good to me as well. To each his own. Jim

X2 on the percolator. No filters, no cleaning, no fuss just great coffee if not allowed to boil. This comes from a guy who roasts his own beans.

X3 On the percolating. With a small trailer we can light the stove without getting out of bed.

One word ...H-U-S-B-A-N-D ... oops, start generator, then find instant coffee ... but at home; now, that's a different story. And, he doesn't even drink the stuff.

Showoff..... With a big 34 you have to get out of bed stumble down the long hallway to the big kitchen and light the stove. It can be a big effort with that long walk down the hallway and all⛺

At home I use either the Chemex or a French press, when we're camping it's either Aeropress or French Press. Somehow the fuller flavour of the French Press seems to fit into the woods.



I tried using stove top coffee makers, but I just don't like the resulting coffee.

We use this Moccamaster both at home and in the camper. When we have power we plug it in. When we boondock we heat water on the propane stove and pour it directly into the basket.

Well actually we have the previous version of that one

Oh boy, this is a thread I can help with. I have a trailer full of coffee stuff. Family think I am crazy. If you are a Starbucks fan (pressurized) then the Aeropress Andreasdeuss pictured is unbelievably easy, small and makes super coffee - many coffee geeks love it and it is about $20 on sale at Bed Bath & B. You will need a grinder. The problem with grinders is that you pay for consistency. The Baratza that Robert mentions (and is various iterations- I have the Preciso) is one of the less expensive options- still pricy. Saeco Makes smaller semi-automatics coffee makers.

If you want a full blown coffee maker, Saeco makes smaller semi-autos- Via Venezia and the Poemia. Short stays dragging one out and packing back is a drag but the morning and evening coffee is great.
