We just replaced our Mr Coffee with a DeLonghi coffee pot ( Drip Coffee Maker 12 Cup DCF2212T by De'Longhi ). We got it for about $45 from Best Buy after returning another Mr Coffee that had started to leak from the bottom after only 3 days. Love it much more than any that we've had over the last 5 years.

For a lot of years, we used a cuissanart drip coffee maker that had an insulated stainless pot. Didn't need the hotplate to keep it warm. It would stay hot for several hours. When we had the mr coffee and boon docking, you could here the gen lug down whenever the hotplate kicked in. We have the mini keriag in the mh now and I think it makes better coffee than the big one at home. Keep in mind you can get refillable k cups at walgreens. They work great with any coffee. My new favorite however is my new brevile expresso/cappachino maker veeeery pricey but I love it. When we go full-time Im going to have to mount it in a bay. Its so big it would take up the entire counter in the mh.

Folger's makes coffee bags like teabags that I have used camping before when I tent camped...still had to boil water ...then over the campfire or on a coleman campstove... I use the stove and a percolator now in my moho... about 7 minutes is all it takes! Carry a thermos to keep it warm on the road.

You can buy a 32oz press, puur in the grounds, pour over hot water just off boil, put on lid. Press handle down 1 inch, wait 4 minutes. Push down handle to bottom. 2 perfect cups of coffee. Oh yes you need 2/3 cup of beans for each 32 oz made.

I use the Clever Coffee Dripper. All you need to do is boil water, on the stove, in the microwave, whatever.

Agree! At 3-4 pots in a day I'd have to be fitted with a pressure relief valve.
BTW, I use a 'mokka' type coffee maker that makes faux espresso because my French press won't fit in the drawer.

It is a mistake to allow any mechanical object to realize that you are in a hurry.

.

I used to be a morning coffee drinker Stop @ noon and water the rest of day. Since I retired 3 years ago its coffee all day so I can see 3-4 Pots maybe more some days. We use a Bunn, 12 cups in 3 minutes. We then pour that into a Carafe.

Coffee does have its place in our routines...and i would really miss my coffee if my routine got swayed. I use a tea pot to make hot water and pour the hot water thru a Melita Drip filter holder into a thermal carafe. I use the battery to run the coffee grinder so I can have the fresh ground beans. That being said.... my wife drinks the Keurig coffee pod stuff and likes her coffee from that source.... which is more efficient. I think the Keurig is probably more energy efficient....but the pour thru method offers a better taste.

X 2 on that one.........
