Hi, we are old and retired, so no hurry. We like, simple to make, mild coffee. At "Denny's" we ask them to fill our cups with half coffee and half hot water, and then, sometimes it's too strong. [lots of sugar for me]

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⛺

I'm a big fan of the Moka pot myself. I've got a larger model for sharing while we're out camping. I pre-grind up a bunch of beans for the trip and the stove-top moka pot does good for me. The only issue is that I've gotten spoiled with the frother heating up the milk for home made lattes. I'll have to check out the power draw on that once we start boondocking.

Not a drinker of hot coffee and being from Rhode Island, where my state beverage is Coffee Milk, I like iced coffee. I use the Chemix.

I'm a traditionalist... A good old Regal Electric Percolator is my favorite. I do use small round paper filters in the basket as it helps keep the grounds put.

99.9% of the time I have shore power so why not? I also carry an Electric Skillet, and an Electric Hot Air Popcorn Popper... You get the idea. Why use propane when the electricity is free?

I do have a stovetop percolator but rarely use it. We pre-grind our coffee before the trips.

As five years have passed since I posted my original AeroPress comments, I'd like to say that, that little polycarbonate 'press' is still doing it's thing EVERY morning to brew our 'perfect' cup of Cafe American...!

I've been a coffee drinker for about 60 years, and have run through most all the gadgets to brew coffee; percolators (many), steamers, french press', Chemex, Mr Coffee like filter brewers, etc, etc... but I can truly say if I'd had an AeroPress way back when, I'd have been a much happier camper, AND saved 100's of dollars as well..

It's the simplest type to use, clean up (just a splash of water), and it's filter is a small disc, just a bit larger than a silver dollar - cheap but effective...AND it just makes the BEST cup of coffee ever - over and over each day...!

Here's a bit of what AreoPress says it makes their cup of coffee so much better...

"There are several reasons why AeroPress coffee tastes so good:
Total immersion of the grounds in the water
results in rapid yet robust extraction of flavor.

Total immersion permits extraction at
a moderate temperature (175 degrees), resulting in a smoother brew.

Air pressure shortens filtering time to 20
seconds. This avoids the bitterness of long
processes such as drip brewing.

The air pressure also gently squeezes the last
goodness from the grounds, further enriching the flavor.

Because of the lower temperature and short
brew time, the acid level of the brew is much
lower than conventional brewers. Laboratory
pH testing measured AEROPRESS brew's
acid as less than one fifth that of regular drip
brew. The low acid is confirmed by coffee
lovers who report that AEROPRESS brew is
friendlier to their stomachs."


We like rich, dark French Roast coffee without sugar or milk, and the AeroPress' smooth flavor really brings out the best in brewed coffee - IMHO...

Try it you'll like it...

OK,

My time to chime in. After many, many years of sailing and facing the question of what coffee maker works best I've concluded that the French press and the percolator, neither requiring AC, are the answer. Both are stainless and rather unbreakable and I find the coffee flavor surpasses the electric coffee makers. The only drawback is the cleaning. Not wanting the grinds in the holding tank, on my AS, requires a bit of ingenuity with both of these.

Strange how we agree on coffee, yet on TVs....

Having said that, I do like Aeropress coffee too.

And coffee grinds biodegrade. I have no problems just cleaning them into the fire pit.

double wall insulated French Press

We have used a Bodum insulated stainless French Press going on 4 years and still love it. Makes 8 cups or 4+ large mugs. They are about $90 though for the large size. Find it at ebay or many kitchen stores. Also if you are near Ikea, I saw a nice insulated FP pot there a year ago for about $35. Strudy enough that a local restaurant used the Ikea pot for customers. You might check to see if Ikea still has that press.

In addition, since I get up an hour ahead of the captain, I bought an insulated "sandwich/lunch" neoprene sack at TJ Max for $5 and I put the insulated press in the insulated sack to keep it extra hot for an hour or so. This sack also helps to keep my pot shiny when packed away in the drawer under our bench traveling.

Cleaning is a little of a mess since I try to use a paper towel to wipe out the wet grounds before washing and this keeps them out of gray water.

They're excellent fertilizer, too. Shame to waste them in a firepit when you can sling them into the grass to help it grow.

I am reminded of a saying from a past life, "I don't care how the clock works - I just want to know what time it is!". Kind of feel the same way about the morning cup of Joe - Insulated Bodum, regular bodum, cone filter, electric insulated coffee maker - as long as my DH is brewing = all is right in my world!

Vintage Flameware

I will be purchasing a vintage Flameware glass percolator. I'll probably never know if it makes good coffee or not because my sweet husband never complains about anything I make for him.
It should be kind of fun to watch it perk through the glass.
It worked for someone once so what the heck...
