We bought a beautiful old '50's Sunbeam electric percolator on Ebay. We're using it in the house now and will use it in the Airstream when we move in. Makes coffee to whatever strength you select and keeps it warm for hours without burning it. We'll use a simple filter/funnel over a cup if the power is out. We use that when camping.

Oh... but they do! We have one of these Frieling presses. It's unbreakable and double walled for insulation. The eight cup model makes 4 nice size mugs of wonderful coffee; no filters needed and nothing to break.

Yes, this one looks like one of the modern, stainless steel replacements for the old style cast aluminum varieties that were commonly sold in Europe decades ago. We've got both varieties, one in the house and the other in the rig. (Hardware stores in Europe sell new gaskets, by the way; if you need some, Maria's going over in April.)

We've also got at old Melitta from decades ago. It's an unbreakable one that Melitta produced specifically for campers that includes both filter holder, pot and lid. Takes the same paper filter as the standard variety.

They both make life in the Airstream easy! Just turn on the gas stove! (But I think we need to get ourselves a manual grinder.)

Ooh, I didn't even know that existed. Perfect for us--thank you!

We have a braun , no longer available but I would recommend a non breakable pot.
ours is stainless and we bring our beans along to grind them fresh.
We usually have some type of electric. If not find a Starbucks for that am.
I think ours worked when we dry camped. ???????????

I can't be without coffee and I found this little contraption to do the job very nicely, and it doesn't take up any space. I never thought I could survive without a coffee pot but this makes it so easy and I always have a fresh cup of coffee. It sits inside your favorite mug, you add you favorite coffee and just pour the hot water over. It's fast, easy, small, and cheap. MSR makes it and there are a few other versions of it as well.


For 1 or 2 people it's great.

I have a friend who bought one for his trailer and was very disappointed with it. They draw a lot of battery (20 amps) and take a very long time to brew the coffee .

We just use an inexpensive coffeemaker when connected to shore power, a stove-top percolator when we are not-----and Folger's tea-bag type things when hubby needs an afternoon cup. We also carry these with us during air travel, with a little coil heater for the mug----not the best, but not too bad!

Never use battery power to make heat, especially when you have gas available.

Agreed. We have a 12 volt coffee pot, and a 12 volt hair dryer. Both only get used when at locations with 3 amp power (like at WBCCI rallies), where you can use the 12 volt power immediately, and have the rest of the day, and all night, to replace the power consumed. And no, they aren't all that great as far as functioning.

I absolutely agree.

Besides that, I can't imagine an electric coffee maker that does better than the non-electric options such as the press, peculator, or even the Malita drip system.

After reading about the Aerobie above, I went and ordered one, along with some accessories, from Amazon...

AerobieŽ AeroPress(TM) Coffee & Espresso Maker

It's indeed a great way to make a quick, rich tasting, non-bitter espresso or Coffee Americano...takes about three minutes...

I heat a measuring cup of water in the microwave to use in the Aerobie, then 'squeeze' out the espresso right into a mug, then add remaining hot water to make the full cup of coffee....just great, smooth, rich tasting nectar!

It's also easy to add some frothed, warm milk, instead of the additional water for that 'Cappuccino' or 'Caffe Latte' taste, when the mood strikes...

We've always used 'French Roast' coffee for it's aromatic, dark, rich flavor...IMHO it's best for this type of coffee making!

Try it, you'll like it...yummy

Good Coffee?

At home I use a press but when on the road, I use a Melitta #2 cone. Makes really good coffee if you start with really good coffee beans. It gets even better with a sniffer of Hennessy or such.

I also enjoy a good cup of tea in the evening. You should try it - after all - the Boston tea party was some time ago!
