Good coffee maker for a trailer?

LaBigDogs -

I've been using a Rok at the house and in the trailer for over a year now. Apart from having to replace the rubber feet, and the handle of the carafe coming loose (though I've never had a hand-pump espresso machine without that issue), it's been an amazing system.

I've never had a bad draw - and methods to effect a ristretto versus long draw are fairly easy to figure out. Let me know if you've any questions.

We've been using a stainless insulated french press for years but recently I was boondocking with extremely limited water making washing difficult (french press can be a mess) and tried a pour over. this one folds up flat and uses no 4 paper filters. It worked well and the clean up was super easy GSI Outdoors Collapsible JavaDrip Slim Drip Coffee Maker at REI.com

I have an aluminum dripolator that I got 35+ years ago. Don't know if it still is made. Antique stores or Salvation Army thrift shops might turn one up.

Check on eBay. I have found a lot of good pots and pans there, wish I had looked there before purchasing a new one. It's OK but not nearly big enough. There are some larger Revereware coffee pots there.

Coffee Makers

However, who's got a more conventional design that they have used and had good luck with in their trailer? We'd like something along the lines of your typical Mr. Coffee...something 120V AC. We have a BUNN at home, obviously the BUNN principle is not going to work well in a travel trailer. Sorry for the purists, but we like the convenience. Any suggestions?
We also have the commercial Bunn at home but forget that and try to have a variety with a Mr Coffee 8-12 cup electric drip for a lot of morning coffee and a Bialetti Expresso for that quick on the road over the gas stove cup of coffee. Finally we also have a 50's Revere Ware perk pot but don't try that in the winter time with the trailer closed up. You'll have drips all over from the condensation. Ask me how I know.

We have a small electric coffee maker for when we have power and use a pour over with a filter (Chemex or other type) with water heated on the stove when we don't. The pour over is great because you can toss the filter and clean up is a snap. French presses, we've found, are too hard to clean.

The "K Cup" ones are small and require minimal cleaning, but not ideal if you drink a LOT of coffeee.

I don't always have 120VAC, but I always have propane. Melitta 8 cup w/#6 filters. Revere Ware whistling teapot. Cheap, lightweight, easy to clean. Use fine grind (#2 or #3). best coffee at home or Stream'n!!

“I personally like the Chemex outfit with filter papers," Byam once wrote. “I wish Chemex would make this deal out of stainless steel, as I am continually breaking the glass coffee makers they provide.” Both the Chemex coffee maker and an Airstream trailer have been on display at the MOMA in New York City.

Me too. They must have toughened up the glass. We "discovered" the Chemex about five years ago. Simplicity, perfect coffee. If they would market it with a clever European name even the coolest people would use it.

This is awesome! In post #43 of this thread, on February 8th, 2009, the OP, in a subtle fashion, chastised people for continuing to post after they (the OP) had already made up their mind on what coffeemaker to purchase and use. Five and a half years later, here we are, still discussing coffee makers... I love it!

We started out with an old Mr Coffee with a timer, so it was ready when we woke up, but then switched to a percolator, which just seemed to take to long, and then to a French press, which is my favorite cup of coffee. We have a Bunn at the house, but it just takes up too much room in the camper, and is a pain to store.

-Red, loving the coffee talk...

Too hard to clean? You dump the grounds in the waste basket and wipe it with a paper towel. Whats so hard about that?

Gotta rinse them, etc. When boondocking I don't want to waste the water and get coffee grounds down the drain. Like to pick up filter, dump in trash, and I'm done. Like the taste too. Personal preference I guess.
