Morning coffee

Many years ago when I first started camping I would brew coffee over the open fire in a percolator style pot. Lurking as I do here a lot on IRV2 I see that many still enjoy coffee heating with gas stoves, microwave, electric and so on. When I take the MH out on a voyage I find myself building the morning fire so I can brew my coffee the why I did way back when. Love the smell of a fresh pot brewing along side the bacon and flap jacks. Does anyone besides me still do it this way?

Nope, I can't wait that long. Sorry, we still use a Auto-Drip that is set up the night before and whoever gets up first just has to hit the power switch and 5 minutes later it's done!

On a wilderness hunting trip without the RV, but not with creature comforts.

That's the best way for sure. We brew it in the old percolator, but on the gas stove (as close to "real fire" as possible). We do it at home like that too, but than again,.....we cook (daily) in the cast iron pots and pans (antique), and cook stews in the back yard (VERY LARGE back yard) over the open fire in the cast iron cauldron, when we feel like it.

Nothing to be sorry about, On rainy days I revert to the magic button.

Lifemember, we too have become simpler in the years. But still perk our coffee in a electric percolator, I love to hear the sound of it in the morning! My mother still does this at 84.

I don't think Walmart would like me building a fire in their parking lot.

Actually, I prefer drip coffee so that old fashioned way doesn't work for me.

When boondocking I use an old Corning Ware stove top peculator because running the generator seems like a waste just for coffee. It does seem to take a long time from waiting for it to start to perk, lower the heat and then to perk about 8 minutes. Wife doesn't care for it because it's too strong for her but she can water it down with water and half/half.

When on shore power or if I'm running the gen anyways, I use the Keurig. The DW and I don't have the same taste in coffee so it's the about the best for both. Also if guests are with us we have a variety of flavors/brands with your choice of strengths.

I am always aware when using the Corning Ware that there was a recall for the pot coming loose from the handle due to a glue issue. Ebay will not allow sales of the pots as a coffee pot, you can buy internal parts or a pot only as a holder for utensils.

That would be understandable I tend to favor the COE campgrounds with my 50% off pass.

The old fashioned way is too slow. Besides if I build a fire just to make coffee then I'd have to wait for it to go out, or pour water on it before starting my day. We use a Keurig brewer. Everyone gets the exact type of coffee they want, and ours brews a cup in less then a minute. Plus there's no pot to clean afterwards.

I am the only one who drinks coffee so how it taste is never an issue. too strong , not to strong. I try not to complain to myself.

I'll take coffee in any way it's made. I have a continuous cup in my hands all day long. I love coffee just plain black. If I could smell coffee brewing on a open fire you'd have company. I have a cup collection from around the world that people have giving me. On the down side, I don't sleep well.

Coffee is better made with a percolator, fire, stove, or electric. We have two Keurig one in S&B one on MH. Only use an electric percolator in both. In MH run it off inverter in the morning before quiet time is over.
