My wife and I love our old-fashioned percolator. Easy storage, no electricity needed (just the propane stove), and some of the best coffee. Clean-up is no harder than an electric machine. We set it up the night before so all I have to do is turn on the burner in the morning.

I need an espresso in the morning. So we carry an espresso maker instead of a coffee maker. It just makes the day that much better!

Then we found Keurig makes another single cup model that only uses 700 watts of power, the K-130. Also easy to make a cup of coffee while traveling down the road, no need to start the generator any longer. The only sacrifice is it takes about a minute longer to make a cup of coffee compared to the other Keurig models.



I both. We use the K-130 when we travel to hotels. Keurig makes a nice little carrying bag for these.

If you want something more you will need something like a Rancillio or Gaggia, a small semi-automatic that can approach espresso bar quality. But this comes at significant expense, usually $500 to $1000. If you don't to spend this much you are better off with the Aeropress for quality results. Don't waste your money trying to brew quality espresso on some inexpensive department store maker as you will be disappointed with the results. I recommend researching the Aeropress and you will be pleasantly surprised. You find many videos on it on YouTube.
Thanks Mocha, I graduated from the department store ones Im now using a lever machine build by Londinium it makes a delicious espresso but its also really big, like really big even for home

This is for my espresso fix too. Percolator for outside on my solo stove. Won’t work on the induction inside though.
Wow! That’s actually a Moka pot, perfect for the side of the road it’s just boils the coffee but it’s not bad for what it is

We have a full size Keurig that sits on the counter. It seems to have a low center of gravity, and does not move.

Dont know if this one was thrown out there but we really like our bunn mycafe


I use the pulse on kcups for a stronger brew all the time ...has alot of other functions besides just kcups and a nice small foot print and can take tall cups.
worth a look if buying something new IMHO

I went with the Chulux Single Cup because of its size. I did a write up on my blog here: KCup Coffee on the Small – For RV Size Kitchens – Texan Traveler

If you just want to look at it on amazon, here it is: http://amzn.to/2BUbNby

As for the unit, it works so well, we bought a second for the House and use it exclusivly. My better half managed a Starbucks for 12 years. She has made well over half a million cups of coffee while in that job. She is the one that said, throw the Keurig away this little thing makes better coffee faster.

Course it's a K Cup, but for ground coffee we have the little cup strainer pot thing.

And for the of $40 bucks, you can buy two and still have less space in the same price as a single Keurig.

Never tasted coffee in my life. Is it good? Never mind. Gone this long without it, can go the rest without it. 140mg of caffeine in every cup, thats as much as a monster energy drink!
