So I get the fresh beans and grind, but what about the brew? We bought a Technivorm Moccamaster expecting perfection but really can't tell a difference when using the same beans and grind. We have also done the french press and "hobo coffee" while camping but still not much difference except for the mud. Is there perfection in coffee brewing? If so, what is the best method?

In the Dutch Star I brought along my Delonghi espresso machine.

Now that we downsized to a class B, I got a Bialetti stove top mocha maker and a hand cranked burr grinder. I actually like the coffee from this better than the automatic machine.

DW doesn't drink coffee, I drink 2 cups (ok, sometimes 3) so we don't need to make a lot.

Have not tried the stove top mocha maker but I do handgrind with my Hario each morning while camping.

These days, whether in my tear drop or the TT, the coffee bar will travel!
I've really enjoyed treating folks that happened by and wanted the pleasure. It's ALL about the bean and the grind.

you have that correct. Its all about the bean and grind. Goodbye Folgers.

We have a $19 Mr. Coffee from Walmart, works just fine. For those times I can't use the generator to brew, I have a Melitta drip cone and an ancient aluminum percolater. We buy coffee from Trader Joe's.
I don't get the whole Keurig thing, seems expensive, not really any faster than drip and the little cups are murder on the environment. Those plastic cups will be around for a long time.

I agree. We spent last Christmas with our nephew and his GF. Seems like in the morning we spent a lot of time waiting to be next in line for a cup from their Keurig. Ended up with the trash half full of little plastic cups.

At the sticks & bricks house we have a Bunn coffee maker. It pumps out a pot full about as fast as one cup from a Keurig. It's a little too tall to take in the MH so we have a cheap B&D in there. Makes good coffee but compared to the Bunn it is painful waiting for it.

Nothing better than a fresh brewed coffee from an old percolater. Brewed over a wood fire. And yes a cast iron skillet makes the best flapjacks that way as well.
