We have the one that fills from the top that your talking about in our motorhome. Works great with any brand pod. I also have the fill yourself pods I got from Bed, Bath & Beyond, they work fine in this Keurig and a larger one we have in our home. Love them both!

I can't seem to edit my post. I forgot to put this link to a story regarding the cost of those convenient K cup coffees. Promise, this is the last of my rant on K Cups. Enjoy your coffee anyway you drink it. K-Cups Vs. Traditionally Brewed Coffee: A Price Comparison

I have a Keurig at home but our camper is small and even the mini Keurig would have taken up too much counter space. Because I am usually the only one who drinks coffee and usually not more than one or two cups, the kids got me this for Mother's Day:





It is from JC Penney and it is usually on sale for under $60.00. It is their brand "Cooks." It is a bit slow but I just get it going while I am getting the rest of breakfast ready. Once you have made the first cup, the next one does not take as long.

Latecomer to the thread (almost 4 years!).


Tin 8 cup percolator on the stove.


1) Fill to just under the spout with drinking water
2) Start the fire on hi
3) Fresh grind 1.3 ounces of coffee and assemble the basket on the tube.
4) Wait for the water to boil
5) Reduce flame to simmer
6) Insert basket assembly and cover (move quickly, spurts of boiling water!)
7) Re-evaluate flame for slow perk
8) Time exactly 7 minutes (show off cute, dollar store, cow shaped, mechanical timer)
9) Turn off flame when the timer gives off it's obnoxious ring.
10) Wait about a minute for everything to settle.
11) Pull out the basket assembly and reinstall lid (warning: hot parts!)
12) Serve and Enjoy!


All that or take a 40 minute ride to Dunkin' Donuts.

Coleman capstove top drip coffee maker. Has been going for 14yrs so far and never fails to make a great pot of coffee. When finished brewing, coffee goes straight into a thermal carafe from wally World.

Wow, almost 4 years and people are still talking about how they brew coffee! Well, I can't imagine camping without coffee either. We use an "antique" clear corningware percolator that I found in a thrift store. (see the picture under my name) The clear pot makes it easy to judge the heat. I think you are using to much heat if it is boiling over on your stove. The water will perk on low heat and by the time the whole pot is about to boil, the coffee will be done. You may find these pots on ebay from time to time.
One last suggestion. Use a drip coffee filter in your percolator basket to prevent the bitter taste associated with perked coffee. Just tear a hole in the bottom for the tube to come through. I actually cut the hole with a grommet installation tool. It will cut 5 or 6 at a time. As for strength of brew, I use 4 of the Mr. Coffee size scoops per pot and it is perfect to my taste. Enjoy!

I might stand to be corrected but I think it might be a Pyrex Percolator.

You are correct Tunce the traveler. It is Pyrex. I just searched "clear pyrex percolator" on ebay and they have a few available. Thanks for the correction!! LW
