I gotta give it to y'all again. Everyone kept chatting even after I had made my decision as to my solution. Based on Foiled Again's solution, I did some looking on the internet. I am now hooked on the manual drip method. I think if I didn't have $100 tied up in my BUNN at home (it's been around for 6 years now...maybe it will die soon), I'd start making coffee this way at home. I really like things that require a bit of technique and know-how. For example, I use hand planes and chisels for woodworking. I split wood with a maul, not a powered log splitter. I heat with wood and I love having a fire in the fireplace (or in the firepit when camping). So I am in love with the manual drip method and the gold filter thing is awesome. I'm going to put it all past Andrea when she's home and she's going to think I'm a wacko for being so excited about it, but I now think the best solution is a manual drip cone w/ reusable filter & a thermal carafe. And the best part is that the only waste is compostable. Everyone's going to know where I've been parked after a rally due to the pile of grounds behind the AS! I can't wait to get the parts. I'll start using it in the house even before camping.

Get used to that. A topic can generate discussion and ideas long after the original poster got the information he asked for.

Not the way I understand it...
Watts are Watts
900W/12V = 75A
If run for 0.2 hours (12 minutes) = 15Amps
You also need to factor in the Amps that are needed to convert DC to AC.

While not a coffee drinker, my parents are, and they are VERY health-conscious after my mother's breast cancer 6 1/2 years ago. They have done a lot of research on just about everything they put in their bodies, and coffee did not get skipped.

If you drink coffee, please use a filter. The French press method leaves oils and alcohols in the coffee that can harm your liver and up your LDL (bad) cholesterol (the study found the increase was 9-14 percent!). A Dutch study shows proof of this (link to blog with study info in it).

One thing I loved when living with or visiting my parents was waking up to the smell of fresh-brewed coffee! I love the smell, but can't stand the taste.

Good old perulator works on top of the stove we already have and If we have electricity we have a 4 cupper electric from WalGreens $9 bucks.
What ever gets the job done the cheapest. I'm cheap and I admit it .

Turns out that as I was sitting at home posting Sat. AM, Andrea picked up a BrewStation at the local thrift shop. It was $6 and it does not have a glass carafe like normal coffee makers. Instead, it brews into a bucket and then you go up and push your cup against a lever (kinda like a soft drink fountain at a restaurant) and your coffee comes out. We cleaned it up and used it in the house and it works quite nice. We figure it will be kinda neat to have it sitting on the picnic table outside the AS in the morning where people can just stop by and fill up and chat for a couple minutes .

No V or Amps involved but we like this.Charlie Bean Coffee: Chemex Coffee Makers Easy to use, makes great coffee, stores in the original box. Plus the classic design looks good in the Stream.

We have a four cup drip coffee maker (doesn't make enought coffee), but we hardly ever use it since we started using a stovetop percolator. We have found that the coffee is excellent and it is ready in about ten minutes -- and plenty for the thermos or travel mugs for the road.

Check out this site -- Percolators

At home we use a grind and brew drip maker.

Tom

At home we use a cuisinart drip.... but in the AS we are the "percolator people".... we've got a stovetop perc for when we're off power but a plug-in old timey shiny percolator for when we've got it. I do like a french press but they don't keep the extra cups warm and we need a couple of cups each. We love our coffee, very addicted I'm afraid!

Sweet.
Does it use paper filters?
How about pouring the coffee, how does it work?

yep, paper filters.
Here is a link. Chemex You can see the groove for pouring.

Been using this for over 25yrs in both our Streams. Big one for the house smaller for the Stream. Stores in it's box above the pantry, stays hot on the stove when dock'n,(off to the side on low), and makes a terrific brew. KISS
