DW used to be a store manager for Starbucks and got us hooked on fresh ground beans a long time ago. Coffee maker in coach is a simple drip machine from Walmart that cost about $25, house model is pretty much the same, but with a few more bells and whistles. Filter is the bronze screen non-throwaway type. Fresh ground beans, particularly the dark ones have a lot of oil in them. The bronze screen filter allows the oil to pass through into the brewed coffee, improving flavor. Paper filters absorb a lot of the oil. You'll see the filter dark above the grounds, where the oil soaks into the paper.

The coffee when we're dry camping is better than homemade. At home it's just tap water. When we fill the fresh water tank, it's filtered going into the tank, then filtered again when it goes into the coffee machine.

My Great Grandfather, while serving during the Civil War, crushed coffee beans on a rock with the butt of his rifle, put the grounds in a tin cup, poured hot water in it, and copped a caffein buzz. The family has since progressed to a Cuisinart. Same buzz, automated.

We got a Keurig for Christmas so I guess our coffee making will change.

Dennis, My brother has a Keurig and the Sunday before last I drank about $10.00 worth of coffee during breakfast. My Bunn can make coffee for over three weeks for about half that. If we ever have one given to us we will exchange it.

OK, first let me admit I am a serious coffee drinker. Not much of a morning person until I have at least the first cup. I grunt pretty effectively during conversations before that. Last week I wrote an article about making coffee on the road, in an RV. Learned quite a bit. I use a drip when I have lots of power, vintage percolator on the stove top when I do not.

MANY comments on the article later it seems that people LOVE the Melitta filter style...it's inexpensive and makes decent coffee. Other folks are swearing by COLD BREWED coffee. It make a concentrate that you can use for a while if stored in the fridge AND can be frozen. Supposedly, there is much less acid in it (so you can drink more! )

Take a look at the article it's got some interesting facts:

WanderMan: Coffee - How To Make The Best Cup While Traveling

Meanwhile, I'll keep experimenting. That stovetop double espresso maker sounds like a great idea!

Another innocent victim poised to tumble over the Latest Greatest Coffee Fad cliff!
I hope I'm not too late to pull you back from the brink...

Quick!

Grab that gift receipt and hustle down to stand in the day after Christmas "returns" line!!!!!!!!

Then use your newfound wealth to buy some of the really useful things on (heavily discounted) offer today...for example: do you realize how many 50% off Chia Pets you could buy with the proceeds??????

Thanks guys, my thoughts exactly, return it. Got in from walking the dogs and my commanding officer had already had it unpacked and brewing coffee. I hope you can get better coffee for it then what you get in the box. It tasted like and old work sock that was put in a drip coffee maker instead of coffee! I still have my old coffee pot.

.....

So-

Can you expect a check for the coffeemaker you just gave your C.O.?

Or is the most you can hope for that he'll think you bought it just for him, thus advancing your career path?

That might make your future of sock-based-swill drinking a little easier to..."swallow"

No expectations of a check, from anyone for a Xmas gift to me and HER, the CO. The career path is set with no advancement in sight. The old coffee pot is still intact and insubordination is alive and well.

Oh...I see I missed your meaning when you said "the C.O."....

You really meant " THE C.O. !!! "...right?

Heavy sigh...

Good luck hangin' on to the coffee pot!

That is cool! I never knew such things existed. The wife didn't know they existed either. With a frother of some sort and the right flavorings we'll be enjoying our fru fru coffee drinks this camping season. Thanks for Sharing!

Glad I could introduce you to it! Discovered and Started using that expresso maker when i lived in Europe, and have kept with it ever since. Most Italians and French use this kind of coffee maker. Cubans do too (hubby is Cuban), Makes great expresso!

We drink drip most of the time, quick and easy, but I still prefer perc with fresh beans. DW doesn't like it as much and we have to watch we don't over brew it. The smell of it brewing in the trailer is wonderful.
