It takes a little longer than the stove, but works well also. As with all hot things be careful. I paid less for almost the same thing at Bi Mart in Oregon.
We purchased one of these Coleman Coffee Makers just incase we get a site with no hydro, or the hydro in the park goes out ( has happened, damn squirrels), used it once, works really good. Just be patient, not the fastest brewer, but it does work great!

I only read about 1/2 the replies but in those I did not seen any mention of the grind of the coffee. I try to use drip grind in the automatics but (if I can find them) percolator grind in the campfire 7 cup percolator. Its ground a little more course and the basket keeps more of the grounds in it instead of letting them settle in the coffee. But you have to watch and adjust the heat on a percolator, its not "plug and play", just let to burp slowly and you will not have to clean the stove.

I agree. I use a stove top perk in which you need to watch and adjust. I also grind the beans myself with a coarse grind. Comes out great each time.

Course grind in stove top percolator. However, I picked up a Keurig knockoff last day of camping last year. Itís in the camper at my seasonal site. I havenít tried it yet. I love the percolator, but it takes too long. I need my coffee fast in the morning!! lol!

French Press. As long as there is fresh water and a heat source you can make quality cups of Joe.

The only and best way to make coffee, I also use the darkest roast beans I can find, and allow the grinds to soak a minimum of 5 mins before I plunge.

Have you tried this coffee? I haven't, but it looks interesting.

For you percolator types: I don't know the ratio of water to coffee. The pot boils over and coffee goes everywhere and the grounds get into the coffee! I think I have an 8 cup pot. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Kim
You have too much heat too fast. A low boil is enough to lift the water up through the basket.

The way I use a percolator is to use high heat until it starts to perk, then cut the heat way down to a slow perk. The perks around two seconds apart.
