Mulling over such things gives my mind something to think about in between camping...next trip will not be till April so I got plenty of time to roast on this question

By April I will be lounging with my wife in our perfect chairs enjoying my "perfect" cup a joe

There is no such thing as a perfect cup of coffee. It is a life long quest. Many think we have AS to camp in; it is not. It is to travel around the country looking for that perfect cup of coffee.

That Chemex looks promising for use. Do you need to grind your own coffee for this? I've never done that.

Maybe just a small electric auto job will do but would be nice perhaps for ease of use

This thread has made me dizzy


Buddy, this thread was made for you. It's a whole box of doggie treats for us tail thumpers at the aluminitis kennel.

Some day we'll tell you about the super secret sub channel threads.

First level initiation has to do with camp chairs, coffee and . . . ?

Smile Esspresso

We tried a Starbuck coffe maker.Good esspresso, but expensive and got tired to running off to Starbucks to puchase yet anoter 10 cups. So we purchased the real thing, an italian esspesso maker, and well, there is a difference. More work but worth it.
We are still using a Starbucks foam maker, but the result is not consistent, sometimes we get foam at time just hot milk. Anyone else tried one of these?

Talking Coffee Makers

Starbucks is the big M for coffee drinkers. You get fast, consistent quality. Unfortunately, most "barristas" dont know the difference between a lattee, capuccino, or double esspesso machiato. So if you are a minimalist you always know where to go!

Question

"Starbucks is the big M for coffee drinkers."

Coffee & CP, I don't see the connection?

This is my current favorite: A collapasble siilicon pour over. Essentially a camping chemex. It uses number 4 paper filters and the clean up is simple - throw away the filter and rinse. I make two or three giant cups with one bunch of grounds. I know it's uncool - but it makes dang fine coffee and our high end stainless french press is gathering dust.

This thing collapses to roughly the size of a hockey puck...

Perhaps we're minimalist, don't know what a "barristas" is and the nearest Starbuck is a small town just south of us; the nearest Starbucks is 100 miles away, I think.

Anyone else like Folgers Breakfast Blend?

We have a Starbucks 2 blocks from here. Never darkened their door. Maxwell House is plenty good enough for me. I am a beer snob though.

My wife has issues sometimes with the acid from regular coffee. She brought home some herbal coffee, tried it, and said it was good. She kept trying to kept me to taste it, saying how good it was. Well, after enough coaxing, I finally tried it. It was good! I usually drink my coffee with a splash of heavy whipping cream in it. Fixed the same way, the herbal coffee was good. Here are the three we've tried:

Teeccino Hazelnut Herbal Coffee 11 oz Bag | Teeccino Herbal Coffee / Coffee Alternative
Teeccino Java Herbal Coffee 11 oz Bag | Teeccino Herbal Coffee / Coffee Alternative
Teeccino Maya Chocolate Herbal Coffee 11 oz Bag | Teeccino Herbal Coffee / Coffee Alternative

All were good, but I found that the Chocolate one plugs up a normal coffee filter, and even a wire mesh filter. I'll try it in our french press...it'll probably do well there.
