We have the electric coffeemaker AND the french press. French press makes the best coffee, no doubt, but when you have an electric hookup and just dont want to fuss, the other one is easier. (translated- hubby uses press, I use coffeemaker - all boils down to who wakes up first)

Your smilies did not show and I am not familiar with what the symbols represent

12 volt coffee maker ? They work great!

Amazon has some 12 volt coffee makers. However Our Airstream has a 120 v Braun. They do not make our model any more or I would recommend it, Braun KF400 . Remember to keep the box and stuff. We travel with ours packed up as if we were returning it. It does not take long to remove it from the box when you get to the camp site. For the road I use a Thermos for coffee while traveling.

I met a fellow Streamer at Starbucks earlier this week....
It was a quick fix for us and a way if life for him! He laughed about being able to park his wet bath 16' in the living room of my 34' and still have room for a coffee bean grinder...

Coffee?

this discussion is fun if for no other reason than reading all the different opinions on coffee.

coming from the self proclaimed coffee capital of the world I too have my preference which is for strong, black coffee from a fresh grind. However, only one scenario makes it best and that is when enjoyed early in the morning, with a beautiful sunrise while sitting in the dinette of my 25 FC looking out over the ocean.

excuse me while I go brew up a cup.

My best coffee maker was free, a Mr. Coffee 5 cupper from the "Exchange" area of the town recycling center. Vinegar and water run through it a few times descaled whatever was in there plus a good scrubbing does me justice.
My second favorite is a stainless steel drip percolator from that tony deliverer of imported goods, Wally Mart. Use paper filters to keep the grounds out.
Keep looking for the best beans though aroma/flavor over caffeine win out nowadays. Dark Roast or Colombian where it is available.

We use the Starbucks Verismo pod style coffee maker. It does not make the least cost coffee, but the unit is compact, well designed and built, and very convenient to use. First cup of the morning takes less than two minutes total time including prep. The coffee is great and with the very unique milk pods, you can have a quick and yummy latte.

I use anything that drips and comes on automatically so that I wake up to the aroma of fresh brewed Colombian dark roast and don't have to fumble with anything before sunrise. It's the main reason for having a solar system. Jim

We got the 8-cup Farberware stove top percolator. It does a nice job and we have a spare carafe in the AS so we can start a second pot if necessary. There were some complaints about it on Amazon but you have to follow the directions, you can't just turn the flame on high and walk away or it will boil over. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let it perc for about 8-10 minutes and voila!

I wish I had thought about searching eBay first. There are some nice Revere Ware percolators from 4-cup to 16-cup urns. They are very well built and of course, retro.

We travel with three coffee makers! Overkill? Maybe....
But a day without a good cup of coffee isn't a good day.
We have a Faberware stainless electric perc., a stainless stovetop perc. and a stainless french press. All three fit in our pantry and because they are stainless steel we don't need to worry about breakage.
We, too, love the Gevalia coffees. We do have a grinder with us.
Another delicious coffee is Ethiopian Sidamos from the Roasterie in Kansas City. We tried this coffee over the holidays and immediately became addicted!

Ah! the aroma of coffee...anytime of the day.

X2 on the percolator!
Needs no filters, only coffee, water, and flame. Can be used several times before consumes water by washing.

We use a percolator as well. My wife's only complaint is it does take a bit more time to make coffee. They do make filters for the percolators which makes clean up much easier.

Hi, I use filters in my percolator too.
