I have a small plastic cone thing that holds a small filter. Hot water poured over the coffee in the filter in the cone, fresh coffee.

About 4, 5 cups. I'm ready for breakfast.

2 more and I can start lunch.

Crabman, I have graduated to the hot stuff. As winter progressed in Az I bought some Swiss Miss chocolate with marshmellows. I mix it in a large insulated mug and top off with coffee in the reckroom. It's hard to believe there are so many posts about morning coffee.

We had a BD Spacemaker mounted in the kitchen. My wife broke the carafe 3 days into our current trip. We bought a Mr Coffee for less than the cost of a carafe and have been using it for 3 weeks.

Load it up at night, first up flips the switch, Let the day begin!

We picked up a Rival coffee pot (high dollar Walmart item) for a whopping $8.97. It makes great coffee if you use decent coffee to start with.

Happy Days are here again. I ran out of my favorite coffee last week when my only local source quit handling it. I was in the Atlanta area this weekend and picked up 4 pounds of Community Coffee Dark Roast. I use it with the refillable K-Cups with my Keurig single cup coffee maker.

Life is good.

Don't you hate when your favorite brands get dropped. Used to have a keurig and favorite flavor of coffee was Jamaicamecrazy. It had a coconut aroma and was sooooo good. The nest best was chocolate raspberry ( which I still see occasionally).

No kidding, huh!! I think it's MORE American than apple pie! Although Italian coffee might be the best.... :hihi:

It's really easy to make your own. Alton Brown from the Food Network has an amazing recipe with dry milk, cocoa, sugar, and a wee bit o' cornstarch (non-GMO, please) to hold it together. Blend it in the blender to make it even and there you go.

My husband came home with Swiss Miss the other day and it had SPLENDA in it! Wasn't even labeled. Like I'm going to feed that to my kids! Then we spent 1/2 hr with him on the phone and me on my computer researching all the chemicals in all the various hot cocoas (almost all petroleum-based) before he just came home and I made my own. I was trying to save time because I'm waiting for a bulk order of organic cocoa, dry milk and raw sugar and because I make almost all my own food from scratch. This is one of those things that I just can't buy anymore. My mom bought us a box of Starbucks hot cocoa and it's wasn't awful for ingredients but you have to add milk and I'd prefer not to as we use raw milk and I don't like to heat it! Who knew hot cocoa could be so difficult to get right?? Although I'm sure it's just me.

Warmly, Kim

Final (as yet) conclusion

SO, after six months of camping, I have come to understand our style and what I need for coffee. Except for twice (bringing our baby home from Iowa) we always dry camp. So any type of electric coffee maker is out until I can afford one of those quiet Honda generators or my husband builds our solar panels. (He's going to build one from scratch as a home education lesson for our three boys, crazy man!)

So I use my blue speckled camping coffee pot to boil water and then use a Chemex drip filter system. It's worked really, really well for me. It's labor-intensive a bit but the coffee is delicious with no added flavors from plastic parts and you can re-heat the glass carafe over a low flame when the coffee cools. I take my super-Starbucks insulated stainless travel mug and it stays hot in my hand for a long time. An issue I could see is the glass breaking with bumping from the trailer so I should wrap it in a towel from now on. And I should take spare with me because seriously could you IMAGINE breaking it on a camping trip and NOT having coffee! I'd have to resort to that cowboy coffee with maybe an egg thrown in as punishment!

Thanks for all your awesome replies!! Because of what we look for as campers and because we have three young boys, we are BOONDOCKERS! Yay! So my coffee and all my gear is as primitive as our camping. No electrics.

We love this Jayco family forum and are so grateful for all your responses!

Warmly, Kim in Phoenix
