Which do your prefer in the RV, a percolator or a drip-type coffee maker? Seems the perc'lator takes up less counter space and sure makes for some good smells on a cold morning. That last cup gets pretty thick though.

I use both. When hooked up to Elect. I prefer the drip. When in the boonies I use the perk. on top the stove.
You just cant be without a good cup of coffee. Its not civilized.

Drip...all the way. We also use that time in the AM to turn on the gennie and charge the batteries while doing the coffee.
Our pot is a metal carafe type that keeps the coffee hot after brewed, so it stays hot and the last cup tastes as good as the first.

What do you do?, When you get up early and its still the quiet time, no generator running. At your favorite campground with no electric. Do you actually wait a couple hours just so you can have an electric drip coffee maker run.
Maybe you sleep all morning, miss the sunrise, birds cheeping etc. and it doesnt matter.
Belive me, there is a place for the traditional perk, coffee maker. I use margerine so I dont have to churn any butter. High cholesteral and such.

That's where the inverter pays off.

BTW, drip.

RC....
I am ALWAYS up earlier than Gloria, so if near a place where I can go and buy a cup of coffee, I go and do that (and get the paper)...if plugged in at a campground, I make the coffee...I always find a way to get that much needed cup....but a Perker?????

If there is no electric and don't want the generator I boil water, grind the beans and use a french press. Good coffee and no electric.
