I also have a very nice percolator pot that works fantastic for times when we have no electrical.

X2! - plus cleanup is much easier and doesn't waste water like a french press.

I get a cup of water and put it in the microwave. Once optimum temp has been reached I add a teaspoon of instant and I'm good to go. I know not two exciting but I'm not too fussy as long as it's black and hot.

Seriously though I would go with a coleman option myself, but rarely camp off grid.

I percolate and minimize "sludge" by using coffee filters. Even though it takes 30 mins to brew (we love strong coffee), it reminds me of my grandma, along with using cast iron skillets. I'm all into the memories, new and old! Plus, I really think they make decent coffee. I recently upgraded to a 14 cup stainless steel model sold by Cabela's.

I was using a french press, and I loved it. Wife hated having grounds left and said it was hard to wash. We now have a 4 cup mr coffee for when we have power (which is most of the time) and the FP for back up.

it is quite a process, boil water, open jar, add 1 teaspoon instant coffee, add french vanilla creamer, add 2 sugars, perfect. come on now, i know there are more of you using instant coffee. stand up for the lazy people.
