We have the Kuerig B30 mini personal coffee maker and it works great. There is no water resevoir. When we are on the move I just put it under the dinette.

The Secret to a Good Pot of coffee is to dispose of the grounds immediately after the coffee is done, be it a percolator or drip. Why? Because the steam of the coffee rises and keeps the grounds moist and then drips down the acid making the coffee bitter. Something a Fire Chief told me years ago.
Myself, I prefer a stainless steel percolator with s/s guts and copper bottom that my father used camping when I was a boy. I can use it on the stove top or on a camp fire giving me memories of days gone with perking sounds and filling the air with a great aroma.

French press, 1 cup. Add coffee, boil water on gas, add water, steep, press, and voila. Makes a good cup of coffee.

The old Black & Decker Space Saver mounted under the kitchen cabinet does the trick for us. These things just never seem to wear out..!

We all have different tastes, but what makes a really good cup of coffee is starting with good-tasting water. Use of a charcoal filter prior to brewing is my best advice.

The real secret is to roast your own beans,I've been roating for about 8 years and nothing compares with it.

Where do you get the "unroasted" beans? I've never looked for them, but don't remember ever running across any either. Where would one go to discover the process of properly roasting coffee beans?

Yeh, a stove top percolator left over from our slide in pickup camper days. Works great, no electric needed ;-)

There's a whole closet industry built on the home roaster. Google home coffee roasting equipment and you'll probably find all you never wanted to know. I've never done it, but people swear by it.

We have a 12 cup black and decker water warmer for our tea. When we were in business we used to tell all of the new hires that if you want time off just make coffee in our pot. Every once in a while the wife wants coffee but she uses Maxwell House International Vanilla so she just needs water. The warmer has traveled very well for 6 years.

I have tried many places over the years,my favorite is Bodhi leaf coffee traders,online or e-bay.I use a behmor roaster.Sweet Marias will give you plenty of imformation on roasting.I have a preference for the Ethiopian or Kenya coffees but you will see they come from many places and have different taste.I have never had a bad tasteing bean from Bodhi but cannot say that about many places I bought from.Remember you need a coffe pot to get proper temperature for the proper taste,most don't.

I don't drink coffee often but, I have a stove top percolator for when friends come along and think they will die without there morning coffee. It's just a cheap tin one I bought at the discount store but, I haven't found a better one yet.
