An old fashioned Mirro perk is what we use.
Pros
· Light weight, rugged and compact. Available is different sizes. Cost is nominal.
· Works with flame on rig’s stove, Coleman stove or campfire. (If you do use a campfire, coat the exterior with dishwashing detergent before sitting on the fire. I makes clean-up much easier.)
· Works with any kind of ground coffee. Add a grinder if you really want some fresh coffee.
· Uses cold water so no time or effort required preheating water.
· Put a small round paper filter on bottom and top of grounds and no problem with grounds.
· Simply wipe with cold water and paper towel for clean-up. Soap will ruin the flavor.
Cons
· Does take some monitoring to keep it from boiling over.
· Will have to experiment with water level and boil times until you get the strength to match your taste.

Low tech works for me as well.The coffee pot on the stove is just the beginning of my low tech day.Maybe it is because I had a Erector Set as a child that technology and I butt heads.I drink my coffee in the same manner as I drive my car,an easy progress of gears with no rush to attain running speed.No zipping back and forth,bouncing up and down and crashing for me thank you.

NOTES:

"Coffee in a percolator is inevitably boiled several times over, leading to significant over extraction and the tarry bitterness which boiling produces. If you HAVE to use a percolator, choose a coffee which is low in acidity and VERY smooth, and grind it even coarser than for the French press. Allow it to perk for no more than 3 minutes."

and yet, who among us has never met someone who prefers a freeze-dried instant over anything else they have ever tasted? How do we explain the popularity of Folger's or Maxwell House? There are levels to this thing called taste that we may never fully understand.

Whoa, you're Christopher Lloyd's grandson?? White haired guy drove a flying DeLorean, right? I wondered where he got that Casio Pathfinder...

My son was showing me the compass app on his iPhone (over coffee, note the careful nod to the thread subject) and I had to tell him about your squall adventure.
