We do the same - French press, etc. Of course, back in the olden days, before fancy-pants coffee, when Mr. Coffee was new, we were known to tent camp and rent an electrical site just so we would have a place to plug it in........always got strange looks with the drip coffee maker perched on the electrical post

I love having the Keurig in the camper. It does take a lot of power to run it though if your Boondocking it would shut down our 2000 W Yamaha generator if anything else is on at the same time.

It's been a long time since I've tent camped without electricity and we don't boondock, but what I used to do was heat a pan of water over the fire and then toss in one of those coffee packs that have the filter and coffee combined all in one. Then I'd simmer it until it was strong enough. Hey, it wasn't stellar coffee but I really need my caffeine and we didn't go without electricity often enough to warrant buying a percolator or anything. Even when we tent camped we would usually rent electric sites. Yeah, I'm a "glamper."

Definitely Keurig here with dark roast coffee. My new Keurig is great as my original one died after 5 years full time RV use. It was a "mini" with no water reservoir and it worked well, but I do like the reservoir on my new one even if the unit is slightly wider than the old one. It has a small reservoir, but will still make 3 large cups on one fill and it isn't too wide to fit between my sink and window.

+1 Except I gotta have my first cup RFN, so I put a handful of ice in the first cup out of the pot!

I used to use a percolator but grew tired of sludge and grounds in my coffee. A paper towel folded up in the basket helps out with that problem fairly well. Still not great coffee though.
Use a Keurig at home and bought one for the trailer as well. Great coffee if you find the right k-cup.
Just ordered the Aeropress to try out this year. It will hopefully replace the percolator. Might even replace the keurig if it brews good coffee.

Cheers
