Manual coffee grinder

I am ready for the trip now that our new manual coffee came. It is a Lido 2 made by Orphan Espresso. I now just have to learn the various setting for the proper grinds. I can tell you that the grinder is not made for backpacking as it is heavy.
Here are some pictures.

Addendum to Janet's collapsible drip cone....

I have heard that it works well to use this right into a thermos bottle to keep it hot.

And here I thought that you were referring to " the big M" that used to wander around Maple Leaf Gardens. I'll have to catch up, I guess. Jim

Have not seen much on coffee lately. So I thought I post that after reading "The Barista's guide to Coffee " by Tristan Stephenson( an English Barista) that I decided to buy another coffee maker. This time it will probably be a French press. Just not sure which one.

I am looking at the ESPRO French Press and was wondering how well it works and is the 18oz size sufficient to fill 2 mugs.

Not dissing the French press, but I gotta say, after our recent trip we're still loving our incredibly old-fashioned percolator. Also works great when boondocking. With good beans properly ground, it makes a wonderful brew Every Single Time.

Very simple:
  • 6 tbsp of coarse-ground coffee in the basket and "5" cups of water per the marking on the side of the pot. NO paper filters needed!
  • Bring it to a perk
  • Turn it down as low as possible and continue perking the coffee for 9 minutes. You want an occasional "bloop bloop," not a continuous boil.
  • Pull out the basket / stem assembly
  • Drink
Even works at Denver altitudes.

Mr. Coffee

Spoon in some Foldgers and you've got 10 cups of hot coffee in a flash. Carafe keeps coffee hot until it's all gone. We also carry a percolator for boondocking.

I like that!

I'm going to have to find us a percolator. Haven't had perc'd coffee in a long time.

Thank you.

You're welcome. We've had our LL Bean stainless steel percolator for at least 20 years. It looks like new and is still going strong.

26 pages and not one mention of the Hario syphon vacuum pot? Equiped with a butane burner? Portable, easy to clean, does not require electricity. This is what I use when I want to sip at my Cafe Sur la Butte---my spot at my backyard creek. Heaven!!! Super clean elegant coffee. Besides, terribly fun to watch. Makes me feel like I am in a laboratory--- pronounced la-bore-a-tory !
In my house: Technivorm MoccaMaster 12 cup, and yes, I drink the entire pot...OK, one cup goes to the hubby.
If in an espresso mood: Elektra Italian Copper-brass semiautomatica --yum!
Backpacking: Lexan French Press--lightweight, durable, but really does make dirty coffee (someone did mention the oils and grit not being so good for you)
Trailer---hmm..., not yet decided, most likely a pour-over.
A goodly splash of cream is a must.

Hi, can you even pour that coffee? We use a similar percolator [six cup] and I use two table spoons of grounds, a paper filter, and let it perk for about two minutes. When we go out, we ask for a half cup of coffee with the other half hot water.

Haha, good one, Robert. Yes, it pours nicely, it's rich and delicious. No Green Acres coffee here, my friend.

Of course, we're from the PNW where most any cup of coffee makes one sit up and pay attention.

Hi, we are new here in the PNW and can't believe how many coffee houses there are. Wife wants to try Dutch Bros; They seem to be the most popular around Salem. [according to the lines in the drive through's]

It works amazingly well. The coffee is much brighter tasting, as the micro filters work better than most mesh screens in other French Press coffee makers we have used. I like the taste better than paper filters.

We use the 32 oz (large) model. I would get that one, especially if you are using mugs instead of smaller cups.
