Coffee or Tea?

I purchased this mid-century modern Flameware coffee percolator and mid-century modern teapot from different sellers on etsy. Now the Flameware percolator (shown in previous post) will be for home and these two will be hittin' the happy trails with us in the AS.

After trying out all my different coffee makers camping this past year I have come to the conclusion that the best methods for me is my Nespresso Machine w/frothier when AC power is available and the French Press when I only have gas.

Without a doubt my favorite is the Aerobie - it's like a french press but without the mess. Costs around $30. At home we have an "instant hotwater" pot. On the road I'll have to use the kettle .

Here's their website:

we have discussed a lot of coffee macnines for our AS but was wondering if anyone has purchased the Handpresso Auto Espresso Maker for your TV and if so how do you like it. I have read reviews and they seem to be good for the most part. It is expensive anywhere from $180.00 to $200.00. It works off of the car battery and makes one shot of espresso using a coffee pod. I thought it might be a nice addition to have on long trips. the cheapest price that I saw was at Whole Latte Love Whole Latte Love - people passionate about coffee!.

I'm also a "two fisted" espresso lover. I use my Nespresso Pixie when I have AC or the generator and I use the AeroPress when I don't. Both make fantastic shots of espresso but one just takes some manual effort.

We love our Nespresso. The Citiz model is only about 6" wide, so not nearly as bulky as Mr. Coffee. And Nespresso capsules are much smaller than Kurig's. But more expensive, as Switzerland isn't part of China.

The coffee's great, and they'll ship capsules anywhere in two days. The hot milk foamer is another mission-critical must-have.

Re: Bunn MCU (Keurig-cup brewer)

We recently bought a Bunn MCU to brew Keurig cups while traveling. See product details in this link:

Bunn My Cafe Single-Cup Multi-Use Brewer, Black/Stainless Steel - Walmart.com

My wife and I retired recently, and previous trips had been limited to 1-2 weeks, max. This past fall, we took our first extended roadtrip; and our French press became too much trouble to use and clean on a daily basis. Since we had to run the generator daily to recharge our batteries, we started looking for a small Keurig-type coffee brewer (which requires 115VAC). All of the Keurig brewers have huge water reservoirs, and they take up a lot of space on the counter or table top in our Bambi. Then, we found the Bunn MCU, which has a significantly smaller footprint.

The Bunn seems to be very sturdily built, and it brews as good a cup of coffee as the larger Keurig models. Plus, by lacking the Keurig's large external water reservoir, there is much less water to spill when underway (assuming the brewer remains upright).

The only odd thing that we experienced was when one brand of bottled water (purchased on the road) would not activate the brewing cycle. After rereading the user instructions, the bottled water did not have sufficient minerals in it for the sensor to detect that the reservoir was full. So, I poured most of the water into a temporary container, added a pinch of salt and poured the water back into the Bunn. -- Problem solved.

As an aside, if other Keurig owners experiences are like ours, I suspect that a couple of times a year they have periodically needed to flush out clogged lines; and they may even have had to replace brewers that were unrepairable. I anticipate that this Bunn will outlast the Keurig brewer we currently use at home; as it is built with typical, heavy-duty, Bunn quality with sturdy plastic parts and heavy stainless steel, unlike the lightweight plastics used in the Keurigs.

We have a 5 cup Mr Coffee, for when we have shore power, and an old fashion stainless steel percolator for the stove top, for boondocking, in the Safari.

We have a 5 cup Krups for the Excella.

I like the Mr Coffee the best. Cost around $15 at wallyworld.

I use this Bodum Chambord French Press coffee maker since few years. Robust, rubber covered bottom. Fully satisfied and have free of charge the “Airstream” look. I paid less than 35$, just wait for special to get it at this price. Some pictures and the Bodum link below:

TV Espresso Machine

With three coffee pots on the AS one being a full size espresso machine my TV felt left out. So I purchased this espresso machine for the truck. It fits nicely into the cup holder and works on 12 volts. It also stores nicely in box between the seats. Now I only hope it makes good expresso like the reviews said

I love that your TV felt anything - let alone "left out". :-)
