Nostalgia - and makes me want to return to those days as my coffee, even with the 'automatic' pots can range from great to terrible. I recall my grandfathers boiled coffee with an eggshell - you could tar the driveway but it tasted good to a 10 year old.

I think that I'll give that Melitta a try in the RV if I can find one locally.

How about this one? Uses the little screw on propane bottle, and makes coffee in 15 minutes, even outside!

After Several years of drinking coffee in some pretty desolate areas using a percolator, I found this information to work for me.

Fill pot with water for the number of cups of coffee you want. Place coffee grounds in the basket: 1 tbs per cup of water is recommended. Fit basket into the urn and place on stovetop. (for stove percolator) Heat the water to boiling. The boiling water will be forced up through the coffee grounds and the brewed coffee will accumulate in the pot which holds the water. Youíll be able to see the coffee bubble up through the glass dome to see how strong (bold) itís getting. With each perk, youíll notice the coffee in the dome darkening. Brewing should take about 5 minutes for a stove top percolator. (Important) Remove the filter basket with the used grounds and pour. If you do not do this, you will end up with coffee grounds in your coffee cup. You may anyway depending on the grind youíve used. The finer the grind, the more chance youíll have for grounds to filter through the holes in the basket.

The best stove top coffee we have ever had comes from the aeropress. You can find them on amazon cheap. We used on daily on our boat for a year. The cleanup is the easiest of any coffee maker we have ever used. It tastes better than a French press. It can make between one and four cups at a time. It is inexpensive.

I would never go back to any other method for stove top coffee.

We have an old GE automatic percolator, but our cousin uses the stovetop. Just use a paper filter pushed over the tube to line the bottom of the strainer and don't fill it all the way...coffee grinds expand when wet...so halfway should be enough. When it starts to boil turn it down so it just keeps a gentle perc going (that's why the top is glass) and when it is dark enough for you, take out the tube and coffee grinds. I tend to like the perc coffee better than drip, but at home it's drip. We also have a thermal french press that we use for backup if we're not on power. A coarser grind works best with these methods.

We just started using this. DW is a bit of a coffee snob and she feels this is the best to use while camping.

I have 3 coffee makers and a Air Pot
a Percolator for on top of stove,
a Corning electric percolator,
a programmable 12 cup Drip
and a 12 cup Air Pot too dispense it.
I keep the grounds in a empty plastic coffee can/lid and add them to the garden when we get home.
Check out your area's flea markets, I bought the 2 perk's at one by us. It took awhile too find like new condition ones but I found them, I am set.
I use 1/2 cup of coffee grounds too 12 cups water

I use to take the instant coffee out of the C-Rations and toss it in my mouth, then a slug of water from my canteen to wash it down. Ha good times...
