We use an automatic dip coffee maker with the thermal carafe, no hot plate. Back up is a stove top porcelain percolator

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.

How do you make your coffee?

My wife has a big Keurig at home and a slightly smaller one for camping. I don't drink coffee. I can't stand the smell nor the taste. The great thing is they make hot chocolate cups for them too. So it does double duty for the wife and kids. And like anything you have to clean it for those who mention bacteria...

I use a 1950's electric percolator in the house and in the rv. Best coffee I've ever had!

Faberware perculator - love it; there are fill lines on the inside. Went to the store to replace my broken one and was in a hurry so grabbed a store worker and asked where to find a perculator. She looked at my weird; got on her radio and I heard her ask "what's a perculator?" to someone!

If we have AC power hookup, I use electric percolator - quick and simple, and makes good coffee. If not, try a French press. As long as you can heat water to near boil, it makes good coffee. You boil water in a pot or whatever, put the grounds in the French press, pour the hot water on top of the grounds, then after about 4 minutes, press down the handle and you have coffee. Grounds stay under the press.

I take a big pot of water and bring it to a boil, and then throw the coffee grind in the boiling water, let that boil for about two minutes, and after that pour some cold water into the pot so all of the grind drop to the bottom and you have hobo coffee. That's is some of the best coffer around, we do that in the field when I was in the Army.

We call that "Cowboy Coffee". From what I understand, it's one of the best ways to make it. I haven't tried it yet... Here's a video:

Starbucks Instant French Roast - comes in little individual foil tubes, 8 in a box. Dump the coffee in a cup, add water boiled in the microwave, creamer, and in 2 minutes I have coffee that a barista could have served up.
