That is classified as dirty water.

Strong,kinda chewy, but not bitter .
It can also be called Turkish coffee if it's a fine grind. They boil the grounds though, and they settle in the pour (mostly).

Or McDonald's coffee

My advice: French Press. As long as you can boil water, and have ground/can grind coffee, it's good whether you're camping or at home. They even make plastic ones now, which I suppose will last a good while if you hand-wash them. On the other hand, I have a 10 year old Bodum made out of glass that has survived many camping trips, trailer or not.

We have one of THESE for those times when we have fire but not power. Works amazingly well, and makes great coffee.

Just picked up a 32oz aluminum insulated french press from REI. We used a glass one on our one month long trip during the 7 days with no shore power. Worked great but wife was afraid of breaking it,

DW doesnt drink coffee, so for me it can be a 2 cup french press (like the pic above).

I bought a travel mug that is a french press...a Bodum. Just make as you would any french press, press the plunger, flip the sip cover, and have your coffee. Coffee maker and cup are all in one unit so one less thing to wash when boondocking.

One of the Better Homes and Garden sweepstakes today was a 14 cup campfire perk coffee maker.. Alas, the stupid Solve-Media captca did not work on that one so I can't win it.

If you really love your coffee, there is no better coffee than a French press. You can buy them in different sizes, insulated or not insulted. , stainless steel, glass, plastic.
No power needed, and a superior cup of coffee. We've been using one for over six years. You do have to grind your coffee coarse, or it won't turn out well.

Reminds me of my FIL. I used to rockhound and hunt with him some.
His method of makeing coffee was a 3lb. coffee can on his grasshopper stove. 2/3 full of water, 2 BIG hands full of coffee ( he had BIG hands), bring it to a boil and add cold water. If you could drink it, you could drink anything.

Coffee. Did somebody say coffee? I cannot live without a big mug of coffee in one of my hands, all day long. For me, I use a Kyocera Ceramic Coffee Grinder and a AeroPress Coffee and Expresso Maker.

Hands down, makes the absolutely best coffee and expresso I have ever had. I "tabled" my two coffee makers and use this combination exclusively.

Mmmmmm.... Suh-weet....

Nice grinder! I've been looking for a good grinder and this may well be the one. Can it grind real fine? We use a very fine grind in our stovetop expresso maker.

Exact same setup I have..It will grind quite fine, you have to adjust it to suit.

that is what I use - I love it and when we camped with my mother-in-law, she was so impressed, I bought her one too!

mine is similar to this:
Shop Bonjour Triomphe Insulated French Press, 8 cup at CHEFS.
