I guess that answers it. NO 12V!! I'm going for a press w/ Propane heat, just like I do at home when I want a cup of express.

Aerobie® AeroPress(TM) Coffee & Espresso Maker

looks really great. I'll try it out. Thanks for the tips. You guys are great. I have never joined a forum that I enjoy so much.

Hi, we just use a simple in-expensive stove top coffee maker; We were using an electric drip coffee maker, but I don't like the fact that the water goes through plastic parts.

We bought one of the little espresso makers, and need to get rid of it and get something else. The French presses like that Frieling press looks perfect, but don't you also need a second, separate container to heat water in? Seems to get fairly complicated. Maybe the old aluminum percolator pot is the best, simplest solution for us.

A french press does require something else to heat water in, but it doesn't have to be a dedicated thing like a kettle. You can just use a pan you're carrying for regular cookware.

We're having a fresh cup now ... mmmm! If you drink espresso based drinks at home but can't bring one on the road, try an old fashioned Italian Moka pot. We use a 6 cup Bialetti and Illy Moka ...

We keep a Frieling press and frother on board as well but find the Moka pot has become our "go to" in the mornings. We don't have a Chemex or Melitta drip, but they definitely make a fine coffee as well.

For boondocking we use an older Revere perculator, but with power, we use our Kuerig. No mess, just pop in a K-cup of choice, dump in one (1) "mini" water bottle and 3 minutes later you have a great cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate or whatever.

Coleman - Camping Coffeemaker -=

We're going to try this for boondocking ... but mostly we try to get at least electric sites, for that fresh brewed drip. Days do not begin for me without my java fix, I am a vegetable until that happens ...

Well, that Moka thing is exactly what I got for our new Airstream. We used it one morning. I had to go through four pots of it before we each had our big, stainless mugs filled twice.

And we vibrated and discussed heart palpitations for hours. La Gringa almost swore off caffeine.

Nah, we need something with some volume to it. I am not wired for a sip of coffee and that's it. I need something that at least lasts through a newspaper without jangling my head off all day.

Cuisnart

Gringo

right now for weekending and short trips we are just using a $20 GE drip maker from Wally world but once I retire and make longer trips, I will be talking the DW into letting me bring the Cuisinart from the house. Other than a Bunn which unfortunately has more leaking problems over the long run than any AS, this Cuisinart makes the best drip coffee I have found and will make up to 12 cups without taking up a huge amount of counter space... and its got brushed metal surface.

Amazon.com: Cuisinart DCC-1200BCH Brew Central 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker, Black Chrome: Kitchen & Dining

Although, I may opt to buy a new one that has stainless steel carafe....

We use an old La Pavoni Euripiccola. What civilized person does not start their day with a good cup of cappuccino?
