I will have the stove in the camper or the outdoor sidekick grill. When you don't have electricity, how do YOU make coffee? I like it really strong and the idea of the percolator messing up my new stove gives me hives.

Would love to know what YOU do!

Thanks, Kim
I use the same percolator I have used for 30+ years.

I put water ~1/2" below max fill line and keep at low heat temperature on stove to prevent boil over. Perk at low heat for about 3-5 minutes.

We use one of the enameled percolators too. Just like the previous writer said, water 1/2" below the bottom of the basket. I run the heat on high to get the water up to temperature, then once you hear the first perks, turn down to low heat and let it slowly perk away until it's as strong as you like it. Yep if you let it perk on high heat it does make a mess, grounds in the brew, etc. Been there done that!

Coleman coffee maker, best piece of camping equipment I've ever bought, must have my coffee. They work just like a home coffeemaker, but require no electricity.

I just pull off a sock, pour in half a cup of grounds, tie a knot in the open end and throw it in a boiling pot of water. Coffee anyone?
