Perfect Camping Coffee

We've been searching high and low for the best method to brew a perfect cup of camping coffee while boondocking, without using any electricity whatsoever, and we've finally found it! No generator, no battery/inverter use, and cleanup is a breeze using little to no water:

Just use Melina #2 filter and cone holder over a Contigo insulated mug. Pour boiling water over the grounds. In about a minute you have a great coffee without any mess. We like it since my DSW and I can have it the strength and flavor we like.

We've done that. We have a pourover Melitta cone, but I hate standing there slowly pouring... And pouring. And to be honest this makes a much, much better cup of coffee.

In your video, it looks like you use quite a bit of downward pressure. Is this required or perhaps just an illusion. Is this something that is "wife friendly"? We're coffee lovers ourselves and the old school perc just isn't cutting it.

That's an illusion. A child could do it. There is resistance as you're forcing liquid through a filter, but not significant resistance.

X-2,

I too use a French press, and as said, a little more cleanup, but no filters at all, and the best cup ever! Rail!

I use the same automatic drip coffee maker that I use when on shore power. However, instead of heating the water with electricity, I heat it in a tea kettle on the stove, and then pour it in.

My 2 cents...I like Tasters Choice instant with water heated in a pan or microwave. TC has regular and a darker roast in Walmart. I prefer the darker french roast.

Sorry but your coffee maker looks like a pain, we drink 4 or so large cups of NW coffee every morning. At home use a Bunn with the hot water tank or the Keurig. In the RV we use either the electric Mr. coffee type or the Colman Mr. coffee type for on the gas stove, Ya we carry two. With the french press backup, we like our coffee.

If you want a pot of coffee, an AeroPress clearly isn't for you. For us, it's the best cup of coffee we found under any circumstances, with the added benefit of using no electricity and easy cleanup with little to no water while boondocking, so we wanted to share. But it's one cup at a time. Different strokes.
