we use the K cup system. i have the device where i can use my own coffee in it and not by the K cups. DW uses it to make her iced coffee every morning. they had to replace it once under warranty without any questions. if we buy the K cups the best place for a variety and price is Bed, bath & Beyond.

My option isn't on the list? I use an Italian stovetop expresso maker. Great expresso, inexpensive (i buy a new one every 10 years) and perfect for boondocking since it uses no electricity. Plus you can use any brand of coffee you like. If you've never tried it you're missing out!

No better cup of coffee than a percolator in my mind. Just too messy for me and takes longer.

Since I travel solo & usually only have one cup of coffee each morning, I use a 4 cup drip coffee maker. That said, since it is only one cup (well, actually a large mug) it has to be right. I added a 1000 watt inverter just to run the coffee maker, use locally roasted beans (Sumatra Mandheling) when home, and grind fresh for each pot.

A raw egg cracked in there will settle the grounds...and provide you with a high-test breakfast to boot!

I use a french press... without the press. I put 4 heaping scoops (just ground Colombian Supremo medium to dark roast) into the beaker, add boiling water, stir, wait four+ minutes and then pour thru a cone & filter into my SS vacuum insulated mug (preheated), pour enough hot water through the grounds to finished filling.

I have read that 205* is about the best temp to brew coffee and living at 4,500' elevation, water boils @ about 205*. At lower elevations I don't bother with preheating the coffee mug.

I then sip and enjoy it for about an hour and it is strong enough that the caffeine last me all day. I use the filter to prevent the sludge build up in the bottom, and it makes for easier cleanup, just dump the filter, rinse the cone and beaker, and repeat the next morning. Also when boon docking, which I do about 90% of the time, I don't have to bother with the generator!

I do the same thing at home.

Sorry but Mr. Coffee will NEVER taste like a freshly brewed cup of Green Mountain Black Diamond from my Keurig....NEVER

Is the Keuring and the K-cups expensive? Yes but I'm worth it!

I think that's the whole point of using a different system...

I generally use a drip coffee maker, but because we are most often dry camping, power is sometimes an issue. We solved the problem with a Coleman Camping Coffee Maker Amazon.com: Coleman Camping Coffee Maker: Sports & Outdoors. It works just like a normal drip coffee maker, except the power for heating the water comes from the propane stove instead of from electricity.

Ouch, for that price, my drip filter and hot water from the hot water kettle on the stove does a great job.

thanks for the tip though.

If I make it the old fashioned way, I put a dash of salt in it to knock the bitter out.
If not.....K cup. I'm the only connoisseur of java in the house.
